American Sikh Council (ASC) formerly known as World Sikh Council – America Region, Representative S. Gulbarg Singh visited the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib, Augusta, GA on Sunday, January 25, 2015. The Sangat was celebrating Parkash Utsav of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He emphasized that Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Guru Nanak Sahib’s Jot in tenth JAMA, carried out the message and of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib and implemented it with great foresight when he named Sri Guru Granth Sahib Bani as the Piri (spiritual) Guru and the Khalsa Panth as the Miri (temporal) Guru. Also conveyed the message that Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s life very much explains the Gurbani message of “AKLI SAHIB SAYVEEYAE, AKLI PAYEEYAE MANN, AKLI PARH KAY BUJHIYAE AKLI KEECHAE DANN”.
Staying clear of rituals and emphasizing the protection of human rights, S Gulbarg Singh also took the opportunity to request that in future, the management celebrate the Gurpurab as per the Nanakshahi (2003) Calendar and the management accepted the request graciously.
