Recommended Posts

With Guru Sahib’s and Sangat’s kirpa, Basics of Sikhi was invited to Calgary, Canada to do katha and deliver our One day course called,
“Re-Assessing the Fundamentals – Vaheguru, Guru and You” on Sunday 17th March 2pm-7pm.


More than 100 youth and elders attended the course, which was in English and designed build up from core concepts. All the talks from the
pilot One Day Course are already on

.

The talks were:


(1) What is Vaheguru?
(2) What is Guru?
(3) What is a Sikh?
(4) The Breadth and Depth of Sikhi
(5) The science of connecting to Vaheguru
(6) How to unite as a Panth?
(7) How could we explain Sikhi to someone?

We also devoted time for questions and enjoyed healthy langar provided by youth sevadaars. The feedback and audience interaction was amazing and everyone seemed to enjoy spending time learning about Sikhi. Although there were people from all parts of the Sikhi spectrum, i.e., those who had been Amritdhari for many years to those totally new to Sikhi, everyone was able to take something away with them.


Bhai Gurinder Singh of Calgary who had organized the whole trip wrote, “These few days really sparked up the whole city. I had so many calls from people telling me how much they loved the course and Katha. It was very inspirational.”


Bhai Sehajvir Singh, a respected local youth parcharik wrote,“I found the course really eye-opening. I have been on this path for most of my life and this is the first time I have been so deeply affected by the profound philosophy and concepts presented. It may be labelled ‘Basics of Sikhi’ and yes the approach taken does it make it easy to understand but I felt this was the core of Sikhi. Its easy to put Sikhi into a box and not realize how all encompassing a blueprint it is. ”
Jessie Chahal, a graduate from LSE wrote, “It was a thoughtful, insightful and inspiring talk on the value of Sikhi, the importance of having Shabad Guru as our anchor in this life of ups and downs and the power of Naam!”
About Basics of Sikhi

We are a physical and Youtube parchar initiative by ‘Everythings 13’ to spread Gurus wisdom in a systematic way (see our five stage plan). We have over 100 videos including the English Katha of Japji Sahib, the principal prayer of the Sikhs. We have another course called the Why Guru Course which is 12 parts and designed to be a weekly course going through history in much more depth. If you wish to support our work, click here.


Future Plans for Canada

The Canadian sangat has been very inspirational and Basics of Sikhi are planning to go there again in August to visit Toronto, Calgary and
Vancouver. Please contact us if you wish to help in arranging katha or the One Day Course.
