Event Details

At the very foundation of Sikhism is the recognition that God is One; an eternal and all-pervasive unity; which was a radical concept in medieval Indian society. The second tenet is that all Creation is equal, without distinction by caste, creed, gender or station in life.  In the words of its founder Guru Nanak, “I see no stranger.”  The First Guru, Guru Nanak (1469-1539), was a learned man, a philosopher and poet, yet his message was clear and plain and meant for everyone.  The Divine is found through humility, service and an affirmation of beauty and joy in everyday life. The Sikh path to the Divine is dwelling upon his name in communal hymns, searching for truth within ourselves, earning an honest living, sharing with those in need, and caring for one’s family.
