Date: Monday 29 April 2019.
Event Description: Join Scottish Sikhs to celebrate the 550th anniversary of the birth of the Founder of the Sikh Religion.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s message to humanity was:
Pray and meditate on God’s name.
Earn a living by honest means whilst remembering God.
Share your earnings.
Recognize the Oneness of God and the unity of humankind.
Is this message relevant today as it was in the 15th century?
Guru Nanak Dev Ji also advocated that “Truth is high but higher still is truthful living”.
What is truthful living?
Is it achievable?
How can we start to live truthfully?
