Khalsa Camp UK 2014...

Khalsa Camp UK took place from 24th to 28th August. This year's camp was mind blowing and one of the best Khalsa Camp that I have been to and many other campers shared the same view. The camp atmosphere was awesome and full of pyaar and Naam. Every single part of the camp was great - Amritvela, Nitnem, workshops, talks, groups, discussions, Keertan and Sangat. This year Bhai Paramjeet Singh Khalsa Anandpur Sahib wale was invited as one of the guest speakers. With Guru Sahib's kirpaa this year's camp was well attended with over 200 people at the camp. The majority of campers were new campers. There were campers from Ireland, Holland, Denmark and from across the UK.

On Sunday Bhenji Sukhwinder Kaur did a lecture on Hukam and her personal relationship with Guru jee. Bhenji set the tone of the camp and inspired everyone with her personal testimonies of Guru jee's love and greatness. On Monday Bhai Tarsem Singh jee did a talk on Anand Sahib. It was a very deep lecture which looked at the journey of the soul after death and Dharam Raaj questioning the individual based on Anand Sahib. On Tuesday Bhai Jaspreet Singh from the V&A Museum did a talk on Khalsa Raaj and Baba Banda Singh jee Bahadar. On Wednesday there was a talk on Gursikhs who fought in World War 1 and their amazing jeevans. On Thursday Bhai Paramjeet Singh Khalsa Anandpur Sahib wale did an amazing talk on the Panj Khands and the Jeevan of a Gursikh.
