Over 100 Dalits come into the Khalsa Fold...

Guna, Madhya Pradesh, India
In December 2012, the Akhand Kirtani Jatha held an Amrit Parchaar Smaagam in a remote area of Madhya Pradesh in India. Over 100 Dalits were blessed with the gift of Amrit and joined the Khalsa Panth in village Guna, distract Aron. With Guru Sahib's Grace the new Khalsa Sikhs are following Gurmat Khalsa Rehat and in good spirits. It is said that the new Khalsa Sikhs overcame a lot of hardships from local village leaders and police who tried to prevent them from taking Amrit and becoming Khalsa because of their so-called 'low caste'. They were denied basic daily needs such as clean water, yet they did not waiver and were determined to become the Khalsa of the Guru. From farmers to teachers, all these Sikhs are proud Khalsa and we should support them and their families.

The Sevadaars who organised the Amrit Sanchaars in these remote areas of India are now helping these Khalsa Sikhs with their basic day to day needs and teaching them Gurmukhi, Gurbani Santhiyaa and Keertan. They are also planning to build a Gurdwara in the village where the Amrit Sanchaar took place. The sangat are requested to support our brothers and sisters who have newly come into the fold of the Khalsa Panth. If anyone would like to make a donation for this seva or help in any other way then they can contact Bhai Malkiat Singh Seattle (USA) - (253) 682-9337

Another Amrit Parchaar Smaagam will be organised in June 2013. It is said that hundreds of more individuals, thirsty for Naam, Baani and gift of Amrit are ready to take Amrit in the next Amrit Sanchaar. May we all do Ardaas for our new brothers and sisters that Guru jee blesses them with strength, courage and Sikhi spirit.

Dhan Hai Guru! Dhan Hai Teree Sikhee!

Vaheguru ji. They were Dalits BEFORE Amrit and Khalsa AFTER Amrit. So the statement that 100 Dalits take Amrit and become Sikhs/Khalsa is okay to say.

Off topic question but bhai saab I tie a regular gurmukhi dastar like you. I recently read on the gurmat bibek website that dastars should not have a larr in the back, place into mouth, or a have a pooni, etc. So iwas wondering paji how do you tie your dastar? Also, when I do the pooni I tie it to a dorknob as I don't have anyone to asist me in the morning; is that wrong?

Thank you veer jee.

Manvir Singh Ji,, are these 100 dalits who turned Khalsas belong to Hindu dalit families or are they Sikligar tribal Sikhs who partook Amrit. There is a huge difference between the two.

They were low caste Hindu dalits before Amrit.
