5th Annual Camp Miri Piri in Espanola, NM, USA
Camp Miri Piri is a celebration and dedication to Guru Hargobind, the sixth Sikh Guru who started the warrior-saint tradition in Sikhism. He wore two swords calling them ‘Miri’ and ‘Piri’. These swords represented the balance between spiritual and worldly powers. This concept of the warrior-saint has permeated the Sikh philosophy and lifestyle ever since. The goal of Camp Miri Piri is to challenge participants to connect with their soul. We recite morning Banis, do group Sadhana, engage in physical training, listen to Sikh stories, meditate, practice gatka and participate in discussion groups.
“My sons and I attended Camp Miri Piri this summer. I had not even known about this camp before this year. My boys and I agreed that it was exceptional. We found the bringing together of all types of divergent communities that Yogi Bhajan engendered to be exceptional. Amrit Dhari Sikhs who had never practiced yoga along with Kundalini yoga teachers who had never recited a bani. We found common ground and acceptance and it felt like a small bloom of a deepening of the world wide community that all of us attending would help grow and thrive in the coming decades.Thank you!” ~ Angela Oston – Guru Prakash Kaur
