Summer Solstice Camp – Flashback Pictures

3HO has been having the Summer Solstice camps for over 30 years (before I was born). Here are a couple pictures of me and my parents from way back when I was 14 months old.

In case you have been thinking about coming to Espanola, New Mexico this summer for the Summer Solstice Camp, it’s not too late. It’s about a month and a half away. For me the camps are always a blast! A mix of fun, spirituality, learning, processing. Already we have a cool group of Sikh youth from Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, England and other countries (in addition to the 1,200+ people that already come from around the world for the camp.). If you are interested in joining us at the camp, let me know. I have some discounts available too which might apply to you :)

    gurmustuk i have question..

    i was just wondering.

    is it true that golden temple food industry is owned by 3ho. and is making up 10 million a year. i just wondered it afther i watch the DESI DNA in bbc video archives. thanks that all

  3. Anon: I don’t know the answer to this. Though people do confuse volume of sales and think that it means profits. The Golden Temple and KIIT business donate a huge amount to charities and many very worthwhile causes.

  4. Bhai GMS, your picture made me nostalgic. I remember having seen color pictures with faded colors, of me and my siblings when we were kids. I guess the color photo technology was just emerging in the 70’s.

  5. Gurumustuk Singh Ji you are a very fortunate soul to be embraced within MataJi enough to make you who you are now. From Wahegurus wonderous works you have become a bonfire from a candle light. I hope throughout your life you can keep your fire burning.

    That is true about Golden Temple Industry, when you have 100 million dollars volume of sales means you had to spend millions here and millions there, and doesnt mean they got to keep all that money. Being a contractor you could do a job where the customer paid $3,000 but materials cost $1,000 and then you have to pay laborers etc. Plus you have to be insured or bonded and you have to pay taxes and Pay your yearly contractor license dues. So it isnt cheap . Out of $3,000 you only kept so much. From volume sales the profit amount is a huge percentage less.
    Its good annon asked rather than thinking GTF Industry made as much as the oil companies make.


    Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki fateh!

  6. We actually stayed in that tent for the ten days of Solstice and we had a fabulous time…..
    Sleeping outdoors. doing simran and kirtan under the beautiful blue skies of the day and star flooded skies at night.

    Such a wonderful and fulfilling happt time of the Sadh Sangat.

  7. These photos are both from the same year….rather than 1976 and 1978……both from 1976…you would have been 14 months old….you started walking at 10 months….in a hurry to get to the SIkhnet Blog.
