Gurbani related activities are the core of Sikh Sewaks activities. These activities are catered mainly for the youth but others are always welcomed to join in. What is Sangat if it is not inclusive, isn't it.
Sundays with My Guru Ji (SWMGJ)
This is a weekly programme where about 20 youth come together to do Simran, learn Paath and the meaning behind Gurbani. The programme takes place every Sunday morning at Khalsa Dharmak Sabha, starting with a simran session, followed by Gurbani coaching by a local Gurbani teacher Praji Sukhdev Singh. The overall aim of the programme is to provide youth motivation to come to the Gurdawara, find peace of mind and relaxation to the mind via a youth-centred Sikhi parchar programme that is conducted both in English and Punjabi. This objective is achieved through experience of Simran and Paath. The programme has successfully ran in the second half of 2014 where the focus was on Japji Sahib. The programme continued in the first half of 2015 with Rehras Sahib. The third semester will be continuing on the 2nd August with focus on the Anand Sahib.
Thank Guru Ji It's Friday (TGIF)
Youth Kirtan Darbar is a unique programme catered for youths to create Kirtan magic by providing them with a platform and opportunity to create a sangat and enjoy blissful Simran and Darbar Sahib sewa. In 2014, this programme took place every month before the Sarab Rog Ka Aukad Naam programme. This was a successful planning as it managed to attract the sangat who were early to attend the second programme. This year, the frequency of the events was reduced to quarterly to make the programme more niche while still providing the youths a platform to perform kirtan. Recently in July, the programme was redesigned and rebranded as TGIF – Thank Guru ji It’s Friday, which will take place every last Friday of the month. This programme also includes an English katha session which was previously not included in the programme type. Most Gurdwaras lack special Darbar sessions for youth, much less an English Darbar session. As such TGIF aims to fill a crucial gap in our community.
