Vaheguru Simran by non-Sikhs...

Below is a video from Khalsa Aid's seva in Haiti. The locals wished to know more about Sikhi from the sevadaars. The orphanage manager is leading children in chanting 'Vaheguru'. It is amazing seeing the concentration and love in everyone's chanting. Vaheguru.

This week I played this video to my Year 8 school students (who are non-Sikh English children). The students have been studying Sikhi for the past two half terms. This week we looked at Seva, Simran and Sacrfice. All the class did Vaheguru Simran (including atheist children) for 5-10 minutes. Everyone enjoyed the experience and said they felt calm and peaceful afterwards.

ਵਡਭਾਗੀਆ ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਮੁਹਹੁ ਕਢਾਈ || 
vaddbhaageeaa vaahu vaahu muhahu kaddaaee || 
How very fortunate are those, who with their mouths, chant Waaho! Waaho! 
(Ang 514) 

Dhan Hai Guru! Dhan Hai Sikhee!
