Guru Nanak:"What merits is in caste? Know thou the Truth within; (Of whatever caste one may be), he, who tastes the Poison will die !"

Revealed The Golden Temple

Sikh News Headlines

Amritsar, Punjab: The SGPC today dispatched another 50,000 food packets to the flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir. Its employees and devotees are working overtime to prepare langar at Sri Guru Ram Das Langar Hall in the Golden Temple complex.

Manjeet Singh, secretary, SGPC, said: “We have prepared 50,000 food packets each containing four paranthas, dry vegetable and pickle. These have been sent to Srinagar by air this morning. We will send 50,000 more food packets to Kashmir tomorrow.”

Kulwinder Singh, publicity in charge, SGPC, said the Indian Air Force had deployed four aircraft at Sri Guru Ram Das Ji International Airport to transport food...


Amritsar, Punjab: The SGPC has removed a plaque put up at the historic Maharaja Sher Singh Gate adjacent to Akal Takht in the Golden Temple complex after a plea was filed with the Sikh Gurdwara Judicial Commission, stating that the plaque carries wrong information about the descendants of Maharaja Sher Singh.

When The Tribune team visited the Golden Temple complex, it found that the plaque was removed from the gate and the place where it was installed is now plastered with cement. The Maharaja Sher Singh Gate also holds great significance due to the fact that the SGPC has preserved it as...


Ludhiana, Punjab: Jaswant Singh Cheema, in charge, Shiromani Akali Dal (A), here has alleged that the police had failed to take any action against those who had attacked him. Instead, an FIR was lodged against him only.

Briefing mediapersons here today, Cheema alleged that on August 24, he was attacked by some influential persons. The police, under pressure from the ruling party, had registered a false case against him (Cheema) and he was being falsely implicated in it.

Cheema said he was extending a helping hand to a poor and needy family when a few persons attacked him.

District president, SAD (A) (Rural), Tarlok...


Burzulla, Srinagar: Twelveyear-old Javed’s house in Chaanapura, Srinagar, is still submerged. In order to survive, the family has enrolled at the Shahid Bunga gurdwara in Burzulla to get some rations.

They are among the 1,500 people — Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus— who have registered at the gurdwara to get food, shelter and medicines.

Perhaps the most telling thing about the gurdwara’s commitment to help is the fact that they have shifted the Guru Granth Sahib to a smaller room and have opened up the larger hall to provide help to those rescued.

A local transporter has been enrolled to take people to the airport and...


Amritsar, Punjab: As Kashmir continues to battle floodwaters, the langar or community kitchen facilities of the Golden Temple and other shrines here are putting in all the efforts to cook as much food as possible for the tragedy-hit people.

After a request came in from J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) that had sent 25,000 food packets to Srinagar on Friday, doubled the number by sending 50,000 food packets through an Indian Air Force plane on Saturday. Since there are four desi ghee paranthas, dry vegetable (potatoes) and pickle in each packet, 50,000 packets are good enough...


Chandigarh: In a meeting with union minister of external affairs Sushma Swaraj, a delegation led by Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday took up the issues of Sikhs living in abroad.

The delegation asked her to take up the issues with her counterparts in various countries. It told her that Sikhs were in a sizeable number in the US , Canada, the UK, France, Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan, and were recognised as representatives of India because of their identity but in countries where they were small in number, they continued to face problems that could be addressed with India’s...

Harmandir Sahib Hukumnama : Tue 16 September, 2014
There is no other than You, Lord. You are the Creator; whatever You do, that alone happens. You are the strength, and You are the support of the mind. Forever and ever, meditate, O Nanak, on the One. || 1 || The Great Giver is the Supreme Lord God over all. You are our support, You are our sustainer. || Pause || You are, You are, and You shall ever be, O inaccessible, unfathomable, lofty and infinite Lord. Those who serve You, are not touched by fear or suffering. By Gurus Grace, O Nanak, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. || 2 || Whatever is seen, is Your form, O treasure of virtue, O Lord of the Universe, O Lord of incomparable beauty. Remembering, remembering, remembering the Lord in meditation, His humble servant becomes like Him. O Nanak, by His Grace, we obtain Him. || 3 || I am a sacrifice to those who meditate on the Lord. Associating with them, the whole world is saved. Says Nanak, God fulfills our hopes and aspirations. I long for the dust of the feet of the Saints. || 4 || 2 ||
