Japji Sahib Courses: Crestone, Colorado and Phoenix, Arizona

by Ek Ong Kaar Kaur Khalsa – ekongkaar.blogspot.com

We interrupt the posting of the Anand Sahib Translation with a word from our sponsors. :)

To all of you who have emailed and written asking me to teach the Japji Sahib course in your area: By Guru’s grace, here are two upcoming opportunities to spend a weekend meditating on Guru Nanak’s Japji Sahib.

Take a break from your daily life, and open your heart to deeply understand the beautiful, powerful and elevating wisdom of Guru Nanak.

With a full-time job, I will be able to teach maybe three or four times this year. So please come join me if it’s possible for you, in Colorado or Arizona, in the first half of 2007.

Here are the dates and the details. By God’s grace, may we come be together, with each other, in the vibration of the Shabad Guru.

    is the Japji Sahib course for any age?

  2. Sat Nam.

    Yes – this course is for people of any age. When we have had similar courses in Espanola, NM, Washington DC and Singapore – the age range of the participants was from children to elders. And there was a good experience for all.

    Kindly let me know if you need any other information.

    Many blessings,

    I became sikh many years ago. I went to India. But i guess i am just really poor. I have had no good karma in meeting other western sikh. I have enjoyed mostly eastern friends when in the company of other people of practice.

    I am interested in donations of the five k’s, so that i can honor the gurus request.

    Please spread my email around and my request that i am seeking donations of unworn bana/ headgear and the five k’s which i can use to express practice and inspire me to work harder to attend the big gatherings that happen. I really would like to have a few different pen pals from different countries to help me dig out of my marginalization and isolation in society.

    I have only been to temples where usually mostly sikh from india are present. i am curious why there is not more bridging between the people of the east and west. I see similar issues in the buddhist communities.

    Anyhow, please email me with supportive letters and leads and fidn out how you can donate to this humble sikh and yoga practice hub.

    I am in the west coast northwest and am near one of the fastest growing churches (false christians) who teach that Jesus does not want them to do yoga.
    Thank you

    Sat Sri Akal,

    Iam an Indian Sikh living in America. Me and my family have lived here for 10 years. We have lived in different states. As for the 5 Ks. The size of the Kara varies. If I have a basic idea, I could get 3-4 different sizes. As for the turban, again the size, the material and color are a matter of personal perference. Kanga and Kirpan are perhaps the only things that are common. I will be traveling to India. If can have some more details with regards to size and choice then I could help you.

    It is commendable that you want to be identified with your new religion. It is not easy. But then again if you really want to do it is not hard either. Iam sure the people in the Gurudwara that you go to will readily help you with that.

    If I could be of any other help. I could try.
