New Delhi, Jan 27 (UNI) Renowned spiritual leader and founder of Art of Living, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has inaugurated an exhibition on Sikhism titled 'Sikhs, the Defenders of Indian Dharma' here at the Bangla Sahib Gurudwara.
Organised by the Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) in cooperation with FACT India, the exhibition which showcased bravery, fearlessness and sacrifices of the Sikhs during the Mughal, British and post independence periods was formally opened recently.
From first Sikh Guru, Nanak Dev to tenth guru, Guru Gobind Singh 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 exist still today.
Addressing a huge gathering, Ravi Shankar spoke about the incomparable role the Sikhs have played across 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," Ravi Shankar said.
Undeterred by the cold, people thronged in large numbers to the Gurudwara to be a part of this initiative.
