It helps people to develop and connect spiritually with one another.
Throughout the year we organise various camps where Sikh or Non-Sikh students can actively participate in a fun rich relaxed environment. Here everyone gets a chance to meet new people. These camps make people familiar with Sikh traditions and culture.
The Guru’s Word (Gurbani) is what the Guru spoke. It is the imprint of the essence of God. It is the pathway to God. If the ordinary human being speaks it, it will always elevate him to that state of consciousness of the Guru. We organise classes for students who wants to learn Gurbani in a right way.
