Women's Institute

Recommended Posts

Hoping for some helpful advice.

A client at work is a mid 60's white British female. She is a member of Women's Institute. She says her group have a great interest in learning about history and religions.

They are based across different parts of London mainly in this group. She asked for my advice on which would be a good Gurdwara for them to visit in London?

I am thinking Shepherd's Bush is easy to reach via public transport. Southall and ones in East London maybe less so (and possibly would not be as nice to travel to).

They would like to have a tour and I guess, someone who speaks well in English to help educate them about Sikhi. I have advised they would be able to eat free langar when she mentioned food.

Otherwise, would it cost anything (they would be okay to pay a small fee if needed) for a tour/visit?

Also, it would probably be most useful for them to have a female Sikh tour (who looks religious) as she mentioned she had misconceptions about Sikhs being 'only men'?

Can anyone advise ? Thanks

I'd like to think she'd get a warm reception anywhere. Let her know to take off her shoes and cover her hair and sit with the ladies but I bet lovely folk welcome her before that. 

Just let her know we don't do bake sales. 😂😂

That's probably because our women insist on not wearing Sikh articles of faith.

So fly her to Alaska if she is that desperate, i am sure someone will teach her all she needs to learn. To be very honest I have never seen a female sikh ever.  Here every sikh person you see is a man, with a turban and a long flowing beard,  either dyed in very dark red or bright yellow colors, mostly speaking in very unfamiliar dialects. Very strange.

Not sure if you are being sarcastic.....

    • Can you present the actual post?  I have asked you several times to present it.  Why don't you want to present it?   Do you remember the story of the three little pigs and the wolf?  You can huff and puff all you want.  Until you present the actual post no one with an unbiased mind will take you for all your huffing and puffing.  Don't fill the room with useless air.   Also look at the story of the boy who cried wolf.  You keep crying wolf, but the wolf isn't there.  Its a person asking you to present your original post.
    • Also the Deras in Punjab. They’re like these Christian missionaries.
    • 5 paragraphs were written explaining how God is behind everything. You are all Guru’s sangat, if you get something inspirational to read, the Guru is showering his blessings himself. The story is way deeper than x user writing something. I honestly learn things myself reading back after writing.  When the mind focuses on the Guru, words can come from within. My comments were intended just like a giani finishes katha by saying anything said is the Guru’s words, for I am not worthy.  4 minutes later this troll had drawn his conclusions and replied to say I am claiming to be the Guru. 4 minutes! He is so target locked on attack mode. Maybe he could try sleeping on things and looking at it with fresh eyes in the morning! Original post was written in our mouj, a tribute to my Satguru, how much he does to help his Sikhs, to encourage you all to make Mool Mantar part of your life so you reap the benefits. Yes my Guru showed me how his pyare leave this world, they also showed how jamdoots unforgivingly beat the life out of people to drag them to hell. I have no reason for sharing such types of posts other than trying to help you, motivate you to jaap naam. I asked a Saint once, doing simran you get feeling of sarbat da bhalla, you want whole world to be liberated. They replied people haven’t got same feeling for you, they’d stab you in the back given the chance. Some people here insult me, judge me, are more interested in trying to guess who I am, speculating things.  I don’t judge any of you at all, to me you are just souls I thought let’s encourage. If I do judge you the result is why do I bother, they throw everything back in my face.  How often do you think such posts come along? In dhiyan we remembered all of you, let’s write a motivating post for them. 1 person insulting someone in dhiyan is enough for God to take everything away. 
    • women need to be controlled and need the rules laid down on them or they will go uncontrollable
    • The lower castes in Punjab are asserting themselves and that is good (not in this murder but in terms of organising themselves and uplifting themselves) The missionaries source of converts is going to dry up and that could be where the conflict is coming from.
