There are hundreds of ordained Sikh Dharma ministers around the world. The leadership body for the Sikh Dharma ministry and the work of Sikh Dharma International is called the Khalsa Council.
The Khalsa Council is an international body of 200 ministers who meet twice a year to serve the spirit of Sikh Dharma International.
"The Khalsa Council embodies the sovereign, spiritual, status of the Sikhs. In action it is the parliament of the Sarkar ay Khalsa. It is the leadership. It is a body that lives in the divinity, nobility, and grace of God. What comes through the Khalsa Council is simply projective kindness, compassion, divinity, nobility, and grace. It is the very embodiment of the grace, radiance, lifestyle and projection of Guru Gobind Singh."
--Siri Singh Sahib Harbhahan Singh Khalsa Yogiji - Dec 28, 1991
