Religious Services- Page 2


On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, there are additional religious services attended by the congregation.

Some of these services are requested by families while some are meant for general public. Anyone and everyone is welcome to all such services.

Every Friday, after the morning prayers, Akhand Paath (continous reading of Guru Granth Sahib without break) is started at around 9 am, which continues until Sunday morning.

Every Sunday, at around 9 am, Bhog Ceremoney (completion of reading) of the Akhand Paath, which was initiated on the preceding Friday, is completed. There after, Shabad Keertan begins, which continues until around 11:30 am. At this time, Bhai Sahib, Giani Jasbir Singh Ji or some other person who is well versed in reading and explaning of the Hymns, continues with Gurbani Vee-chaar (interpretation of Gurbani along with references to some events from the Sikh history or history of the Sikh Gurus, Bhagats, Sikhs, etc.) until around 12:15.

Some announcments and future programs are conveyed to the congregation by the Secretary.

Visiting guests, if any, are given time to speak to the congregation, if the topic of the talk is approved by the Secretary or the President. Each day, like in all other programs, Sunday's program concludes with Ardaas and distribution of Parshaad (sweet pudding).

People then go for Langar to partake some food in the Langar Hall, also known as free kitchen.
