23rd January, 2008, New Delhi

Renowned spiritual leader and founder of the Art of Living, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar inaugurated an exhibition on Sikhism titled ‘Sikhs, the Defenders of Dharma’ at Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, New Delhi.

Organized by FACT India, in cooperation with Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, the exhibition showcased the bravery, fearlessness and sacrifices of the Sikhs during the Mughal, British and post independence periods.

From Sri Guru Nanak Devji to Sri Guru Gobind Singhji and Sardar Bhagat Singh to the Kargil War, artistic renditions brought to life the numerous onslaughts braved by the Sikhs and their valiant contribution to the India that exists today.

The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee felicitated His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, after which he addressed the gathering.

He spoke about the incomparable role Sikhs have played across the centuries and the service they have rendered to the nation. He also hailed the core essence of Sikhism that is glorious and all encompassing to this day.

“The true spirit of Sikhism is in Sewa. It can be seen at all Gurudwaras where people from all walks of life can enter and all are fed freely, with no discrimination and no barriers”, He said.

Undeterred by the cold, people thronged in large numbers to the Gurudwara to be a part of this initiative.
