SYANA 2016 Gurmat Retreat: UPDATE #2

Vaaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaaheguru Ji Ki Fateh

The Panth Awakens

ਇਸੁ ਗ੍ਰਿਹ ਮਹਿ ਕੋਈ ਜਾਗਤੁ ਰਹੈ ॥ ਸਾਬਤੁ ਵਸਤੁ ਓਹੁ ਅਪਨੀ ਲਹੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
Those who remain awake in this house are very rare – in doing so, they retain their entire wealth.

ਸੋ ਜਾਗੈ ਜਿਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਕਿਰਪਾਲੁ ॥ ਇਹ ਪੂੰਜੀ ਸਾਬਤੁ ਧਨੁ ਮਾਲੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ਦੂਜਾ ॥੨੦॥੮੯॥
That person alone is awake, unto whom God shows Mercy. This investment, wealth and property shall remain intact.

We hope you’re as as excited as us for this weekend! A couple of our lovely Bhain Jis, Manvir Kaur and Japman Kaur, have made a vlog to give you a heads up on what to expect this weekend.

One of the projects they mention is the Hack-A-Thon. This project is sponsored by Sikhia, an online education platform seeking to develop a collection of short videos on various Sikh topics. You can find out more about Sikhia in this video.
Throughout the weekend, we’ll take out time to work in small groups on content creation for Sikhia. The idea is to create a 3-5 minute video presentation on something we’ve learned at retreat or any other topic that inspires you. The speakers will all be available to help with research, and we’ll also lead you through the process of planning out and creating the videos.

We’ve got a lot of talented individuals coming to retreat, so we’re hoping to create some creative videos! All kinds of videos are encouraged, anywhere from PowerPoint presentations with voice-overs to musicals performances to live-sketching presentations. Please bring any equipment you think may be helpful—laptops, iPads, cameras, audio recording equipment, etc. We’ll also have supplies available for you, but they’ll be shared, so time with them may be limited.

For more detailed information on what we’ll cover over the weekend, please look at this handout (Hack-A-Thon Cheat Sheet).

Can’t wait to see you all! Stay in Chardi Kala!
