1st Quarter Communiqué

Vahiguru ji ka Khalsa, Vahiguru ji ki Fatih!

For me, April means the opportunity to wish you a very enriching Vaisakhi and to share with you what we have been up to at SikhRI for the past three months.

May I begin with something very close to my heart—in March we produced and released You Are Divine video, exploring the notion of Divinity within ourselves. The video is just under 2 minutes and is meant to be shared; it’s goal is to connect, and reconnect, people with Sikhi.

Are you following us on social media? Besides regular SikhRI updates, we curate a few special series across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram:

  1. Gurbani readings on our new podcast, The Sikh Cast.

  2. #todayinsikhhistory - reflecting on how this day affected the course of Sikh History. We remember and are grateful for the achievements of those who came before us.

  3. #thursdaythoughts - sharing the wisdom of Sirdar Kapur Singh, an eminent Sikh Philosopher and a prolific writer of the twentieth century.

This April in Ontario is Sikh Heritage Month, and we’ll be facilitating events throughout. Come, participate and learn with us.



Lastly, we are now registering attendees for Sidak 2017. The two-week intensive immersion into the Sikh culture, language, values and community will run from July 23rd to August 5th this year. You can choose your perfect track from Sikhi 101: Intro to Sikh History & Theology, Sikhi 201: Religion & Revolution, Gurbani 101: Intro to Guru Granth Sahib and Sidak Junior Camp, for kids 7 to 12 years old.

We continue to evolve all of our programs and plan new initiatives. If you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see from us, please reach out to me at inni.kaur@sikhri.org. Thank you for your support.


With love,

Inni Kaur, CEO
