ਨਾ ਕੋ ਬੈਰੀ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਗਾਨਾ ਸਗਲ ਸੰਗਿ ਹਮ ਕਉ ਬਨਿ ਆਈ ॥
No one is my enemy or a stranger. I get along with everyone.
14th-century Indian poet Kabir, whose writings are revered by Sikhs, Hindus, and Sufis alike, wrote, “The more I search, the deeper within you are
In my awareness dwells your form. Kabir has lost his mind!”
With apprehension looming inside
And an innate fear screaming
I entered camp amidst many
To be welcomed by counselors, beaming
They began talking about evolution of man and how their holy books or their leaders have described it - Adam and Eve story and the Egyptian pyramid link to the stars, to Noah's Ark and we being genetically modified creatures of people from another planet (not getting the right name of the planet as of now)...
Darbar-E-Khalsa: Sikh Sangats came in thousands to celebrate Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s 347th Birthday!
Upon samapati, Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji was carried out in a well decorated palki. Everyone was chanting "Waheguru, Waheguru" to the beat of the nagara. Hundreds of children participated in the procession which was led by an impressive gatka performance by the youth. The procession made its way to a helicopter specially chartered to fly the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji back.
ਆਈ. ਜੀ. ਐਸ. ਖਾਲਸਾ ਕਿਡਜ਼ ਦੇ ਜੱਥੇ ਨੇ ਤੂਹੀ ਤੂਹੀ....ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਧੁਨ ਨਾਲ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਦੀ ਸੰਗਤ ਨੂੰ ਰੂਹਾਨੀ ਸ਼ਾਂਤੀ ਦਾ ਅਹਿਸਾਸ ਕਰਵਾਇਆ ।ਇਹ ਨਜ਼ਾਰਾ ਦੇਖ ਕੇ ਕੌਣ ਕਹਿ ਸਕਦਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਪੱਛਮ ਵਿਚ ਪਲ ਰਹੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਦੀ ਧਰਤੀ ਦੀ ਖੁਸ਼ਬੂ ਤੋਂ ਜਾਣੂ ਨਹੀਂ ||

Darbar-E-Khalsa is our Christmas Celebrations! – J. Singh
So the car got loaded and we started an hour long drive to Fairplex Pomona. This is how our Guruji's birthday should be celebrated: in style. While driving there, kids were chattering among themselves of whom they are going to meet and what they are going to do. Our eldest one had his 'Bana' on for his Gatka participation and our daughter was looking forward to meeting her friends. It's a tradition. We all get together at Darbar-E-Khalsa. It's our Christmas if that makes any sense.
