KHALSA CAMP 2009 NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!!!! [/

A summer break focussed on learning and sharing the essence of Sikhi. Khalsa Camp has a long tradition of inspiration and knowledge.

Khalsa Camp 2009 will located in the North West England. The exact location is only revealed to registered applicants.

Khalsa Camp 2009 will run from Sunday 23rd August through till Friday 28th August 2009.

- What is Khalsa Camp?

Khalsa Camp is a non-profit event that takes place every summer, allowing Sikhs from around the UK (and the world) to come together in a remote location to learn about various aspects of Sikhi. Khalsa Camp provides accommodation and food for attendees for the 6-day duration of the camp. The content of the camp is a mixture of talks, discussions, seminars, Kirtan, Simran and activities. We always work hard to bring the most enlightening, inspiring and educational experience you can imagine within a 6-day period.

- What's different about Khalsa Camp?

Khalsa Camp has a tradition of being a well-organised and professionally run project. On top of that, the content of the camps have always been inspiring. This traditional will continue with Khalsa Camp 2009, but with a much greater emphasis on the content of the camp being focussed on our inner development. The atmosphere of Khalsa Camp is always friendly, relaxed and light-hearted.

- How will I benefit from Khalsa Camp?

The aim of Khalsa Camp is to help you "Discover the Spirit Within". It is common for Sikhs to live their lives without any spiritual experiences and consequently remain God-less. Many find it difficult to begin their spiritual journey, despite efforts they may make. Some may even find it difficult to make the effort that is required. Khalsa Camp seeks to push-start those who need to begin their journey, inspire those who have already begun and share with those who have travelled far on the path of God.

- What usually happens at Khalsa Camp?

Every year is different, but in general terms, you expect there to be around 2 in-depth and stimulating talks a day, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and work together in workshops. We always arrange walks and similar activities to get your blood flowing! There's Kirtan, Simran and Langar too! However, the main benefit of Khalsa Camp is the great atmosphere and eye-opening experiences, which all previous campers talk about. Its an unmissable, once-in-a-year opportunity that is not easily described - you have to be there to experience it yourself!

- Who runs Khalsa Camp?

Khalsa Camp will be run by volunteers (Sevadars) from the UK, North America and India. Sevadars will be from varied backgrounds, all with different levels of knowledge and experience of spirituality, helping to achieve the aim of discovering the spirit within us all. Khalsa Camp Sevadars typically have excellent knowledge and experience of running camps, both locally and nationally. Some Khalsa Camp Sevadars have over ten years of experience so you can be assured of a well-run and professional camp.

- What kind of people attend Khalsa Camp?

Khalsa Camp attracts a diverse range of people from all over the world. In previous years, people from different races, nations and backgrounds have attended Khalsa Camp and enjoyed it immensely. Even if you have no knowledge about the Sikh faith, Khalsa Camp will provide you with a deep understanding by the time you leave.

Khalsa Camp is not an "AKJ Camp".

The Camp organisers make it pretty clear throughout the camp and also in the lectures that the Camp is a Panthic camp that welcomes all and aims to promote Sikhi and Panthic Maryada. Last year there were specific talks on Panthic Eiktaa and looking beyond satkaar-yog Jathas and remembering that we are all part of the Khalsa Panth.

It is very irresponsible for the poster to make such comments as it causes confusion and opportunity for people to be mistaken and think that they are not welcome to a certain camp.

On the same note, Boss Camp doesn't label itself as a Taksaali Camp (as mentioned by K_Z Veer jee). The camp is welcome to all and promotes Sikhi and inspires particularly new comers to adopting the Sikh Path.

There is nothing wrong with Jathas. Some youth start saying "We should have no Jathabandis! They divide us." It is not the Jatha (groups) that divide us, it is our thinking (mind) that divides us and takes us away from Guru jee, let alone fellow Gursikhs.

Any Jathabandi which promotes Gurmat and inspires others to follow Guru jee should be respected and celebrated. Throughout history there have been groups/jathas. Guru Amar Daas jee made the Manji System and divided areas and made people in charge of these areas to do parchaar. Similar, during th 18th Century there were 12 (really 11) Misls or federations part of Dal Khalsa. Each Misl operated independently BUT they came under the UMBRELLA of the Panth and one thing which united them all - that is that they were all Sikhs, promoted Gurmat and considered themselves Sikhs of the Guru.

If you are part of a group. Great. It is a great support network and Sangat and helps people in their Sikhee. But we need to remember that the group is part of one family and that the group alone is not the Panth.

Sorry for long post and apologese if I ruined the thread.

May Guru jee keep us all in Chardi Kalaa and close to Guru Jee's Feet.

Hope everyone takes time out and attends Khalsa Camp this year! :)

Bhai Surjit Singh and other Abhiyaasee Gursikhs will be attending from India and sharing their spiritual knowledge and inspiration with the Youth.

Bhul Chuk Maaf.

    • he was hardcore defender of Yogi Bhajan and claimed that the ladies who gave evidence against YB in court about his abuses  and later the lady who wrote the book were liars or trying to blackmail him . Pretty low behaviour . All the white 3HO core had amrit in 1970 under orders of YB to do with his visit to India to showcase his 'conversions'  
    • Wonderful topic! Sikhs shud hv good understanding of geo politics. World is getting multi polar world......
    • Not a gang, but has relevance to this thread   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-58585788 Swansea man jailed after CCTV operator witnessed rape Published 1 hour ago Share IMAGE SOURCE,SOUTH WALES POLICE image captionTurkey Al-Turkey was told he would likely be deported after serving his prison sentence A man has been jailed for more than eight years after a CCTV operator saw him raping a woman. Turkey Al-Turkey, 26, of Cwm Level Road in Brynhyfryd, Swansea, attacked the woman outside the city's Civic Centre on 18 July. Swansea Crown Court heard the victim had no recollection of the incident and a date rape drug may have been used. Al-Turkey, an asylum seeker from Iraq, was sentenced to eight years and eight months after pleading guilty to rape. The court heard Al-Turkey had been drinking limoncello and vodka with his victim on Swansea's promenade on the night of the attack. The CCTV operator said he had seen the victim was intoxicated and unable to stand by herself, before he saw the attack take place as she lay motionless. He used the council's loading bay public address system to shout: "Get off her. She's drunk. I'm calling the police." Officers arrived at 01:40 BST and were not able to rouse the victim. Al-Turkey told officers she was asleep. image captionAl-Turkey was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court At the police station, she told officers she had no recollection of the events, but was told what the CCTV operator had witnessed after that interview. Carina Hughes, prosecuting, told the court drugs had not been found in the victim's urine, but some substances, such as Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB) are eliminated from the body more quickly, and their presence could not be excluded. "Due to to her level of unconsciousness on CCTV, the prosecution felt it went over and above what we expected and anticipated from intoxication," she said.   An alcohol sample measured 62mg of alcohol per 100ml of the victim's blood. Rape 'killed the carefree version of myself' A victim impact statement from the woman, who cannot be identified, was read out in court. It said: "What's happened to me cannot be erased and will remain with me for the rest of my life. "He has killed the spontaneous, joyful, carefree version of myself and only time will tell whether these traits return in full. "The only positive element all of this is that he has been caught and is now going to be dealt with so that he cannot hurt anyone else." Another statement, from the CCTV operator, said he was struggling and kept replaying events in his mind. Ms Hughes said it was "extremely rare" for attacks like this to be captured on CCTV or witnessed. Judge Paul Thomas told Al-Turkey he had "serious misgivings" about whether the victim's condition was due to alcohol alone. "She made it perfectly clear to you that she did not want a sexual relationship that evening but you plied her with drink so she became less and less able to stand or even to move unaided" he said. "You took full advantage of the situation, putting your own sexual needs before any consideration of the impact upon her." Al-Turkey was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison and will be on the sex offenders' register for the rest of his life. Due to his early guilty plea he will be eligible for release after six years. The court was told Al-Turkey presented himself to the asylum unit in Croydon on the 19 November 2018 when he claimed to have just arrived in the United Kingdom. Mr Thomas added: "Importantly I fully expect that you will be deported from this country immediately upon your release." Related Topics
    • Anyone with any thoughts on what this means ? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-58582573 Aukus: China denounces US-UK-Australia pact as irresponsible Published 1 hour ago Share media captionWatch: Australia’s ‘risky bet’ to side with US over China China has criticised a historic security pact between the US, UK and Australia, describing it as "extremely irresponsible" and "narrow minded". The deal will see the US and UK give Australia the technology to build nuclear-powered submarines for the first time. It is being widely viewed as an effort to counter China's influence in the contested South China Sea. The region has been a flashpoint for years and tensions there remain high. Chinese Foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the alliance risked "severely damaging regional peace... and intensifying the arms race". He criticised what he called "the obsolete cold war... mentality" and warned the three countries were "hurting their own interests". Chinese state media carried similar editorials denouncing the pact, and one in the Global Times newspaper said Australia had now "turned itself into an adversary of China". ANALYSIS: Why this pact signals a major shift EXPLAINED: Tensions in the South China Sea The US is sharing its submarine technology for the first time in 50 years, having previously only shared it with the UK. It means Australia will now be able to build nuclear-powered submarines that are faster and harder to detect than conventionally powered fleets. They can stay submerged for months and shoot missiles longer distances - although Australia says it has no intention of putting nuclear weapons on them. The new partnership, under the name Aukus, was announced in a joint virtual press conference between US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. And while China was not mentioned directly, the three leaders referred repeatedly to regional security concerns which they said had "grown significantly". "This is an historic opportunity for the three nations, with like-minded allies and partners, to protect shared values and promote security and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region," a joint statement read. The Aukus alliance is probably the most significant security arrangement between the three nations since World War Two, analysts say. It means Australia will become just the seventh nation in the world to operate nuclear-powered submarines. While they are the big-ticket item in the deal, cyber capabilities and other undersea technologies will also be shared. "This really shows that all three nations are drawing a line in the sand to start and counter [China's] aggressive moves," said Guy Boekenstein from the Asia Society Australia. Boris Johnson later said the pact would "preserve security and stability around the world" and generate "hundreds of high-skilled jobs". UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace told the BBC that China was "embarking on one of the biggest military spends in history... Our partners in those regions want to be able to stand their own ground." media captionWhy is everyone fighting over the South China Sea? In recent years, Beijing has been accused of raising tensions in disputed territories such as the South China Sea. It has been increasingly assertive over what it says are centuries-old rights to the contested region, and has been rapidly building up its military presence to back up those claims. The US has bolstered its military presence too, and has been investing heavily in other partnerships in the region such as with Japan and South Korea. Having the submarines stationed in Australia is critical to US influence in the region, analysts say. Tensions between China and Australia China is Australia's biggest trading partner, and in the past, the two have maintained good relations. But in recent years, political tensions have created a deep rift, stoked by Australia criticising China's treatment of ethnic Uighurs, banning some technology from telecom giant Huawei and supporting an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Western nations have also been wary of China's booming infrastructure investment on Pacific islands, and have criticised its heavy trade sanctions against countries like Australia - last year it slapped Australian wine with taxes of up to 200%. 'A stab in the back' But France has also reacted angrily to the new pact, because it means Australia will now abandon a $50bn (€31bn; £27bn) deal with it to build 12 submarines. "It's really a stab in the back," France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told France Info radio. "We had established a relationship of trust with Australia, this trust has been betrayed." The European Union's foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell said he understood why France was disappointed by the deal, adding that the EU was not consulted about the new alliance. "This forces us once again... to reflect on the need to make the issue of European strategic autonomy a priority. This shows that we must survive on our own," he said on Thursday.
