One will never understand what exactly means sewa or selfless service at a Gurudwara (Sikh Temple), until they get a chance to experience it for real and reflect on it. Our very recent Gurudwara Walk is more than just a Food Walk! This walk will introduce you to the concept of community kitchen, called Langar, started by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak. In addition to the ideals of equality, the tradition of langar expresses the ethics of sharing, inclusiveness and oneness. It is probably the largest attended community kitchen in the world. The food is freshly prepared and comprises of Parshaada (roti), Cooked Vegetables, Daal, Kheer, Karaha Prashad. The service is performed by the volunteers called Sewadars. This practice of selfless service goes beyond the bound of religion and serves to nourish the soul, creating a sense of unity and oneness. The experience of the Gurudwara Walk will empower you to be one of the sewadars at the Gurudwara. In the role of a sewadar, experience the ultimate joy of giving.
If you want to understand the importance of love, gratitude and the belief in humanity over and above divisive and undesirable categories of caste, class, religion, gender and disability, then a Gurudwara is the place to be!
