Denmark Smaagam 2012...



From 16th to 18th March, the Sikh Sangat of Denmark held a Keertan Smaagam at Singh Sabha Gurdwara Copenhagen. With Guru jee's kirpaa the Smaagam was really Chardi Kalaa. Sangat from UK and Sweden attend the Smaagam.


During the Smaagam I met a Jamaican man who lives in Denmark. Veer jee's name is Raymond. He first heard of Sikhs after the 1978 Amritsar massacre when the Dharam Yudh Morcha was launched. He said that he remembered seeing Sikhs on the news asking for their rights and was inspired by the Sikhs. Many years later in 2006, he read an advertisement in the local newspaper advertising an open day at the Gurdwara Sahib. Veer Jee came with other members of the public visited the Gurdwara Sahib.

During the Gurdwara visit Raymond was introduced to Giani Jee who taught him tablaa, despite not knowing English or Danish. He learnt through 'pyaar'. Veer jee was told by Giani jee in broken English, "When walk, work, on bus and all day say 'Waheguru'". Veer Jee took Giani jee's words to heart and started during Simran and enjoying the blessings of repeating 'Waheguru'. Veer jee now wants to take Amrit. He has kept his Kesh and been wearing a Dastaar since 2006. He practising Nitnem and enjoys reading the meanings (translation) of Gurbani. May Guru jee bless us all with thirst of Naam, Gurbani and Amrit.
