Just came back from Sikhi Camp on Saturday. It was amazing. Guru Sahib has blessed me with so much inspiration. First Khalsa Camp then Sikhi Camp. I'm thankful to Guru jee for given opportunity to attend both of these camps.
At Sikhi Camp I met so many Pyaar wale Gursikhs. Waheguru. Group 10 was great. They were like a family. It was great that everyone shared their experiences. The Keertan was great aswell. It was humbling to have to darshan of the mothers of great Shaheed Singhs - Bhai Harjinder Singh "Jinda" and Bhai Raju jee. Looking at how Chardi Kalaa they were, it left one feeling speachless. It was also moving to see brothers making steps of keeping their Kesh, starting Nitnem, starting to tie dastaars (turbans) and sisters saying they were going to stop doing beadbi (dishonouring) of their Kesh and wanting to crown themselves with the Dastaar blessed by our Father, Guru Gobind Singh jee Maharaaj. Waheguru.
Here's some photos:

Guru Sahib jee leaving the camp site. It was moving to see the rain of flower petals! It was as if Guru Nanak Sahib jee in his form was walking and the Sangat and the skies were showering petals and singing the praises of the True Guru. Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee.
