Attention All Kirtan Program Organizers

Vaheguruu ji ka khalsa, Vaheguruu ji ki fateh

Currently in kirtans/smaagams, the occasional chraavaa in front of kirtanees usually goes directly in the golak. Instead, why dont we setup a system so that the chraavaa can be used towards charity/cause...?

I.e. using a vaja cover in front of kirtanees, put a sign up saying the maya will go towards Canadian Cancer society.

Im not saying that putting in the golak is wrong, but this is an idea that can be used for other charitable causes that are in need of donations at the moment. Even for family victims of 1984 that are still going through hardship in India!

Majority of the sangat that comes are not jatha afiliated, and tek their $2-5 worth regardless, why dont we use this concept and do something for a good cause!

Every little bit helps :)

Thoughts?

That's a very unique and innovative thought

definitely something to think about for sure.

Sikhroots,

I am from Canada, so wouldnt know if UK committees work the same way. Usually here they are lenient in terms of leaving it upto us what we do with the maya that is in front of kirtanees. Some gurughars here are picky and complain that their raagis are missing out on their 'income', but mostly they are okay with us promoting something for a cause since they will look good in the eyes of the sangat! When we approach them correctly, they are okay and most times we just do our own thing, and have rarely had any problems.
