South Shields Gurmat Camp 2015

From Thursday 6th August to Monday 10th August, a Gurmat Camp was held at Khalsa Mero Roop Hai Khaas Gurdwara in South Shields. This was the first time I attended a camp at South Shields Gurdwara. The local Sangat is very blessed and has lots of pyaar for one another and for the visiting Sangat.

The Gurdwara Sahib is unique in that it runs on the sewa of sangat alone. The Gurdwara Sahib has no golak, no paid granthis, raagis, committee, or any employee. Since 1984 the Gurdwara Sahib has a place for continuous Jaap of Simran where Sangat participates. Another wonderful thing about the Gurdwara was that they have especially made rooms for Sangat to stay and purpose made shower and wash facilities. The accommodation, showers, toilets and generally the whole Gurdwara were so clean and well maintained that it showed how much pride the Sangat takes in the Gurdwara and values seva.
