Celebrating Our Faiths – on Tuesday April 11th the Sikh community will be launching a new display at noon in city hall for Vaisakhi, one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar. It is the their New Year festival and also commemorates 1699, the year Sikhism was born as a collective faith. Vaisakhi is a long established harvest festival in the Punjab and was celebrated long before it gained an added dimension for Sikhs. In 1699 the tenth guru, Guru Gobind Singh, chose Vaisakhi as the occasion to transform the Sikhs into a family of soldier saints, known as the Khalsa Panth. Guru Gobind Singh founded the Khalsa in front of thousands at Anandpur Sahib.”
All welcome, refreshments will be served.
