February 6, 1987
Part of the “Awakening of the Khalsa” 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.
The Siri Singh Sahib believed it is an opportunity – a wake up call. Now is the time for Khalsa to unite in the spirit of the Undying, Infinite Truth embodied in the Akal Takht. In honor of all sacrifices that have paved this path we walk together, let this anniversary awaken the spirit of the Khalsa within you!
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. Join us in this journey of awakening in this season of renewal.
