Sikh Dharma International: Awakening of the Khalsa
Awakening of the Khalsa video series!
On June 6, 1984, the Akal Takhat, the seat of religious authority for Sikhs, was attacked. Many remember the tanks and bullets and thousands of lives lost, yet through the lens of the unseen, we see God in everything. Like the phoenix that rises from the ashes, Khalsa will always prevail.
Sikh Dharma International invites you to celebrate this awakening with us. During Baisakhi 2009, we released 11 historic video Gurdwara lectures by the Siri Singh Sahib in which he explains the significance of this event in depth and how it relates to Sikhs and the whole of humanity.
Below please find interesting stories, poems and personal accounts related to the history and consciousness of the Akal Takht.
