Sikh Massacre Observance, Euless Gurdwara


Saturday, November 3, 2012

Sikh Genocide Observance
Gurdwara Sikh Sangat
1400 W Euless Blvd, Euless, TX 76040

"The first response from those who support killing of other people is usually, "they asked for it", "we are fine now and there is no need to mess it up with these programs" and a few more extreme thoughts. These  ideas are born out of their inability to deal with the situation and find solutions. Nothing was really fine, if it was, this would not have happened. The idea of this and other programs is to understand the issue, beware and remove the cancerous cell that is destroying the fabric of the society.  No one needs to be blamed, but together, we need to remove the root cause. All of us deserve Mukti, an ironic element that one will not have, if the other does not. 

Education is the purpose; we have to learn, acknowledge and reflect upon the terrible things we (humans) have inflicted upon each other, and we have to understand that our safety hinges on the safety of all others around us. In a given society there is a spiritual balance that allows each one to pursue his or her own happiness, when some one affects that balance, it hurts us all. There is a perpetrator in us that silently endorses the crimes by not speaking up and ultimately suffers from within, the law of karma is operative within every soul. No one goes scot free." Mike Ghouse, Chair, Annual Holocaust and Genocides event, Dallas.

The  Sikh community reaffirmed the right values when tragedy befell on their community in the Wisconsin shooting. Indeed, their response to the Wisconsin Gurudwara massacre was exemplary and reflects the teachings of the Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism and every one of the spiritual masters from Zarathustra, Confucius, Moses, Krishna, Mahavira, Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, Baha'u'llah, and other great spiritual masters. Your leadership in building a cohesive America is greatly appreciated by all.
We have a special program on Sunday, January 27 to reflect on the Sikh Massacre
