Glasgow Camp

On Sunday I flew out to Scotland for a Gurmat Camp held at Glasgow that was organised by the Sikh Naujawan (youngsters) of Glasgow. With Waheguru's kirpaa, this time I had my passport safe and sound! As the aeroplane landed and I entered the airport I saw a group of Gursikhs from the Midlands sitting in the waiting area. It was a nice surprise, as I was expecting to see all Scottish people. The Gursikhs were coming back from the Rainsbayee Keertan held in Glasgow which was followed by the Anand Kaaraj of Bhai Jasmeet Singh jee & Bibi Gurdev Kaur jee.

Bhaji Sukhwinder Singh jee ("Sukhi Singh") also attended the camp :) The camp started on Monday and finished on Thursday. However, Sukhi Bhaji and Daas had to leave on Wednesday afternoon because we had an Anand Kaaraj to attend on Thursday. The Glasgow youth Sangat are Chardi kalaa and very friendly. Around 100 children attended the camp.

In the mornings the camp started with Japji Sahib and Simran, followed by Ardaas and Hukamnama. After breakfast there was one talk for the younger group and one talk for the older group. The talks were on 'the Gurdwara', 'Who is a Sikh?', Sikh history and discussions. After lunch there were activities and another talk. The day would end around 4.30pm with Simran, Keertan, Ardaas and Hukamnama. May Waheguru bless all the young sevadaars and keep them in Chardi Kalaa so that they can do more great seva.

Some photos from the camp:
