We live in a world where there are people of many different backgrounds around us but we usually neglect to get to know each other. Prejudices and second hand information often shape our thoughts. Exploring Faiths was one of the first initiatives of Dialogue Institute in early 2000s and we believe it will help overcome stereotypes and get to know one another better in today’s political and social environment.

Dr. Harbans Lal will be the speaker to present Sikh tradition on May 4th. Come learn the specifics of the Sikhism. Including the history of Sikhism, how it started, how it is different from the other faith traditions in key beliefs and how it is similar or same in other key areas. How do you see life and detah, how do individuals practice their faith outside the temple, what are the daily/weekly obligations of the members, what are some basic good deeds and bad deeds, major holy days and how they are celebrated, what is the concept of afterlife? As well as the Sikhs’ view on how to treat others, social justice, racial, religious, ethnic, gender based discriminations, women’s role, giving back, community service etc.

Program will start with a simple dinner at 6:30pm followed by the presentation at 7pm.

Join us on Thursday, May 4th at 6:30pm!
