Vaisakhi - Father, Mother and Siblings - The Journey of the Sovereigns


About the Presentation:
In 1469 the Sun and Lion manifest on this earth to illuminate the inherent presence of Divine in all hearts and minds. It then took 230 years to inaugurate the community of pure-sovereigns that dedicated themselves to these ideals. The ceremony of initiation into this order of the Khalsa was first conducted in a dramatic manner by the Tenth Father (Dasam Pita) in 1699. This webinar will explore the significance of Vaisakhi through the infrequently discussed yet profound significance of the adding of sweets by the Soveriegn Mother (Mata Sahib Kaur) as well as the backgrounds and dedication of the first Five Lovers (Panj Piare). We will also discuss various ways in which we can pay homage to their contributions and propagate the values they manifest in the way they lived and died.
