Remembering a Shining Light

This past weekend we celebrated and remembered the life of SSS Harbhajan Singh Khalsa (aka: Yogi Bhajan). This birthday event has always been a joyous occasion and serves to bring many people together. It is especially a great event for inviting the local community to learn more about us as Sikhs. There are normally quite a few political figures and local citizens who have a chance to get to know us better.

This year the Langar hall was transformed into a beautiful gallery for the event. There were all kinds of pictures, art work, jewelry, stories, videos, magazines, etc. showing the history of Sikh Dharma in the west and the life of Yogi Bhajan.

Charanjeet Kaur running around with her cute punjabi suit. If any of you have kids, you’ll know how long a clean suit lasts before something is spilled.

Charanjeet Kaur and her first turban. Lately she has been really into wearing a turban. She always finds Narayan’s turbans and tries to pull them on to her head. It’s so cute!
