It has been a very blessed past week for Sikhs all across the globe as the commemoration and celebrations of Vaisakhi, the day our Khalsa Panth, or way of life was formalized by the tenth Guru, Dhan Dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
What this means is the surnames of Singh and Kaur were bestowed upon all subordinates of the Guru and the code of conduct was put in place for the Sikhs.
So it wouldn’t surprise you to run into so many peoples with these last names! And yes, our 5K’s, Kesh, Kanga, Kirpan, Kara, Kacchera, were gifted to us by Guru Sahib as well.
Sikhs uphold this day though a Marriott of events and remembrances. One core facet of this day is to really try our best to concentrate together as a community and show solidarity to our way of life.
