This video was recorded on Friday August 10, 2012 at the State Capitol Building in Sacramento California. An interfaith/candlelight vigil was organized and held at approximately 7:30 PM in response to the Sikh Temple Shooting/Massacre in Oak Creek Wisconsin. The sole purpose of the vigil was to educate our American brothers and sisters, our extended family, about Sikhism.
Get involved, do sewa, help humanity. We all are Sikhs.
Sikhism is a way of life and philosophy well ahead of its time when it was founded over 500 years ago, The Sikh religion today has a following of over 20 million people worldwide. Sikhism preaches a message of devotion and remembrance of God at all times, truthful living, equality of mankind, social justice and denounces superstitions and blind rituals. Sikhism is open to all through the teachings of its 10 Gurus enshrined in the Sikh Holy Book and Living Guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib. The word ‘Sikh’ in the Punjabi language means ‘disciple’, Sikhs are the disciples of God who follow the writings and teachings of the Ten Sikh Gurus. The wisdom of these teachings in Sri Guru Granth Sahib are practical and universal in their appeal to all mankind. (taken from sikhs.org)
