Faith.  Courage. 

The Sikh Research Institute offers Sidak, a distinctive leadership development program for young adults seeking to increase their commitment towards the Sikh faith. A two week intensive immersion in Sikh culture, language, values and community though understanding bānī (scripture), tvārīkh (history), and rahit (discipline), held annually in San Antonio, Texas.



Becoming Guru-Centered

Saneha is a series of lectures, presentations, and workshops that are delivered as personal and/or community development sessions. Sessions are developed with the aim of fostering Sikh values based on Gurmat traditions of Sikh scripture, history, and discipline. Other universal principles that resonant with the message of the Sikh faith are also incorporated to achieve a more holistic approach. Each Saneha workshop provides an opportunity for participants to ask questions and arrive at answers through discussion and interpretation.



Becoming One Spirit
The Grihast Retreat is a 3-day event for young married couples to strengthen their values in marriage and family relationships. Grihast incorporates diverse themes that are at the foundation of a married life. New perspectives provide insights on building meaningful relationships while workshops and discussions offer a glimpse of the Guru’s vision and ideals on marriage.



Wisdom, History, Lifestyle
The purpose of Mahima is to empower local sangats effectively with new ideas and perspectives that may help them make an informed decision on issues that they face on regular basis in their personal or community lives. Through short sessions ranging from a session lasting an hour to two, to a full-day or weekend workshop, Mahima brings information and clarity on a wide range of topics to benefit the audience.
