Our India service project
After starting to adopt Sikhism in the mid 1970's, I was fortunate to begin learning the importance of serving others in my life, very much a part of this noble religious tradition. Serving (or seva/sewa) became a wonderful opportunity for me to give of my time and to learn to work with others. This has continued and for over 30 years I was in charge of all adult food preparation at two annual international yoga events feeding around 2000. Pre-pandemic I continued to orchestrate one meal at one of these events and also a once-a-month meal locally feeding around 100. During the pandemic, I gratefully found varied ways to serve others, through posting inspirational content on social media.
I was afforded a vision decades ago, to 'make the name Khalsa (which means pure one or pure one's) synonymous with the name Fabergé' of Fabergé 'Jeweled' Egg fame. (Peter Carl Fabergé was a master artisan from Russia who created splendid artifacts for the Russian czars among others. He was prolific from the late 1800's-early 1900's) I plan to make this happened through teaching at an exceptional school based in Amritsar India.
