Wakefield Road Gurdwara Tuesday Diwaans...

Last month I stayed a few days at Bradford Wakefield Road Gurdwara. On Tuesdays they have a weekly Divaaan for children. It was impressive to see children lead the recitation of Rehraas Sahib and then young children come to the front to recite Mool Mantar, Vaheguru Simran, and Shabads they have learnt. Bhai Sahib Surjit Singh jee who stays at the Gurdwara Sahib shares a story and explains Gurmat in very simple and understandable Panjabi to the children every week. It was inspiring to see how the children were so excited to the come to the front to do Paath and how they are eager to learn about Sikhi. Waheguru.
