Khalsa Men’s Camp – B.C. Canada

A Spiritual Gathering of Men. August 1 – 5

Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, CANADA

"This will be the third annual Khalsa Men’s Camp! Promising to be a spiritually upliftingtime for men to get in touch with their masculine core, it will feature a full program of activities including men’s yoga, meditations and workshops, Sadhana (early morning practise), Gurbani Kirtan (sacred music) as well as plenty of time to relax in nature.

Remove yourself from life’s pressures, and enjoy hikes in the woods, starry nights, a swim in the ocean and time in the sun.

Consolidate yourself as a man of Spiritual Consciousness. Be challenged and inspired by the company of men. Find your shining nature and inner will.

This is an experience where men can become the Aquarian Male; embodying excellence, strength of character, fortitude, integrity and a gentle-hearted nature.

This is the camp where a man can know himself as a man. All men are welcome – no previous yoga experience required.

The camp is set in lush green rain forests and not far away from the dynamic West Coast Ocean. This land has been recently purchased by the Vancouver Sangat. We invite you to join us as we create history and begin this summer with our first camps on the property."

    Looks like an awesome camp! Maybe because I know a lot of those guys and know that it would be awesome to hang out with them and do kirtan, yoga, and martial arts for several days.
    One comment though is that the track in the background, is not so pleasant. I totally appreciate people who are new to Sikh Dharma having the inspiration to sing the mool mantra, but before recording they could definitely work on pronunciation. For instance, saying ‘AAjooni,’ instead of ‘Ajooni’ (long A versus short a sound) negates the meaning. Nobody wants to negate the meaning of mool mantra right?
    The other pronunciation is all over the place as well. It gives me the experience of something beautiful being broken. Sorry, to who ever recorded the track, I totally appreciate your efforts and I’m sure somebody at the Khalsa men’s camp can help you to improve your pronunciation!

  2. I enjoyed the background track. I didn’t notice issues with pronunciation…but I’m no expert. I was just “feeling the music” without analyzing it. Who knows…he might have tried his best to pronounce the mantra. Let’s not be too hard on the person. Not everyone has good pronunciation or a person that they can get help from. I would rather he try and make mistakes…then not sing at all. :)

    I feel the love coming through his voice and in the music, which I think is important also.

    Dude, what are you talking about? ha, ha Its okay. Just like Gurumustak said lets try and try again. Practice makes everything perfect,but if we keep on pushing others to the corner then we are not allowing them the freedom to experience. Guru belongs to everyone, not just in this universe but also unlimited others…..

    He’s better than I am.

    It’s definitely a personal preference because people have gotten on my case for making comments before. It’s really difficult for me to hear Gurbani that’s mispronounced (even though I do it myself sometimes).
    I would describe it as somebody driving my car, with the intention to go to Santa Fe, but running it off the road every so often. So that the car arrives at it’s destination, with the driver pleased, and the passenger disheveled.
    Thanks for sharing the video though and your opinions. I totally agree that his singing is more important than his pronunciation. He should totally keep singing in his personal life. It’s just when people record things they might teach others the wrong pronunciation.

    That was a beautiful clip to watch! The sings were so radiant and very brave to jump into the cold Pacific ocean wow!

    I respect Prabu’s correction of the pronunciations. I remember the Siri Singh Sahib– yogi bhajan stopping people during kirtan programs and everything to get them to pronounce the words right.

    Hearing beautiful music from the heart is a pleasure and uplifiting, but when when it is also of that powerful naad vibration it can serve its purpose to heal and expand consciousness.

    As Khalsa we may as well stive for excellence at all times and derive maximum benefit from our practices. We can help eachother achieve that in a supportive way without being harsh with eachother and hurting people’s feelings. I know Prabu. He’s a kind and humble person. Not a meanie at all.

    I do remember when I first joined the dharma and made mistakes left and right: sitting in gurdwara with my feet pointed at the guru..forgetting to wear head coverings at the proper times etc. Sometimes people acted angry toward me for my errors. I’d feel hurt and embarrased. Other people taught me in a supportive way as a sibling does, and I appreciated that and have been careful to treat others in the same manner.
