Nam: Identification with Ik Oankar - Sikh Research Institute

Nam: Identification with Ik Oankar

Hosted by the Kaur & Singh Academy, New Jersey.

Join us as Harinder Singh, Thinker, Educator & Activist will be talking about Nam and exploring the relevance and meaning of Nam in today's world.

Nam is the most important principle and central point of reference in the Sikhi cosmos and still, it remains an enigma among the Sikh masses, and probably the least understood as well. This presentation looks at the etymology of the word, its appearance, usage, and meaning in Gurbani, along with the traces of its inspiration in the Sikh history and tradition that helped shape them.
