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.

    • The liberal mafia attacking Amaan Baali because he committed the ultimate sin of standing up for the Sikh community in Kashmir and told the truth of the grooming of Sikh girls. Let's look at the background of these liberals who are now attacking Amaan. Monica Gill - failed model latched on to the Farmers agitation in order to gain more exposure and credibility. On the grooming of the Sikh girls in Kashmir she was solidly on the side of the paedophiles. She promoted the Quint narrative that the Sikh girl was an adult even when the paedophile admitted that he had started to target her when she was 12/13. Her sister apparently 'researched' the grooming of Sikh girls in Kashmir and found 'no evidence'!  Ravi Singh KA - we all know about him and his liberal agenda and his main focus on using the Panth's money to help our enemies and gain him a Nobel prize.  This Angadh Singh Khalsa guy - another liberal mupp.et using the Sikh identity to further the cause of the Jihadis. here's an article about him- his main claim to fame- being a dhimmi and helping in the Kashmiri plan to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state like Afghanistan. What could possibly go wrong for Kashmiri Sikhs when that happens? His views on the grooming of Sikhs - he is 'nuanced'! How Kashmir's Fraught Political Journey Led a Young Sikh Man Into Activism (thewire.in) You can judge the value of a person to the Panth by knowing the background of the people  who are attacking him.       
    • Is that Surrinder Shinda in the video?
    • There is a new Muslim bhangra singer from UK called Raf Saperra. Not only has he made a music video where he is lusting after and flirting with a Sikh girl who has a prominently displayed kada, but the song has been produced by so called Sikh Sukhshinder Shinda and the background of the video is full of so called Sikhs wearing kaday, egging on the Muslim singer to flirt with the Sikh girl and sing about her lustfully. Astonishingly there is an old Baba with a long white dhari and white dastaar in the video as well.  I have not seen one comment on the YouTube page that is concerned about this. I have also noticed that as part of his image in general this singer has avoided highlighting he is a Muslim, only reluctantly alluding to being from West Pakistan during an interview when asked.  Instead our so called Sikh people are all backing him up and featuring in his videos wearing huge kaday while holding alcohol bottles. There is a blurring of lines here with regards to identity which is normally used by this group to take advantage of our people. Our own people are stupidly helping this cause.   There are a few of his bhangra videos which also feature smoking (Muslim Pakistani  culture) which will probably confuse Apne thickos into thinking this is now a normal part of our own culture. They are making bhangra videos without making it clear they are Muslims and subtly putting their own culture into it. What has happened to these people's zameer?   This is the video.
