Description

Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji ki Fateh

The WhyGuru Course is a 14-week introductory course into the Sikh faith exploring it’s philosophy, history, scripture and music. As well as covering chronologically the history right from Guru Nanak Dev Ji through to the modern day, there are stand-alone sessions on the importance of Raag (musical measures used in Gurbani) as well as, why and how to do Simran (meditation).

The course was first delivered in the summer of 2012 in West London and has since been delivered all over the World, including places such as California, Calgary, Delhi and several parts of the UK.

With Guru’s Kirpa the WhyGuru Course will now be delivered for the first time
in Leeds and Bradford.

The course is a great way to meet like minded people and take a journey on the path of love as prescribed by Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

The Why Guru Course will be starting on the 27th of January and will be continuing weekly for 13 weeks.

The Course will start and end at the Khalsa Science Academy in Leeds. The rest of the course will be held at a Gurdwara in Bradford.

The course will be held every Saturday from 5 - 7.30pm.
