In the Summer of 2007 I wrote about my experience of Taking Amrit. Anyone who has taken Amrit (Sikh Baptism) knows how this experience can change you and how you relate to the Guru. On the day that I took Amrit another daughter of Guru Gobind Singh was born (Amritpal Kaur)! I know for many of you seeing a Sikh who is not of Punjabi origin is unusual, but for me having Sikhs from African American origins is a lot more unusual.
Here is a beautiful video that Amritpal Kaur recorded and posted to facebook yesterday. She shares some of her poetry inspired by Guru Gobind Singh and her experience on this spiritual path. You definitely feel her "African American Sister Soul". I love how each cultural background brings a unique "flava" (Aka: Flavour :)
