To celebrate the new year we went to the Golden Temple all together, students and staff members, after a day of rest and settling down from our Winter Break journey. We sat on the Parkarma to meditate by chanting to Guru Ram Das, embracing his powerful, healing energy for 11 minutes. At midnight we dipped in the sarovar to renew and purify ourselves while reciting Benti Chaupai and recited an Ardas for the new year and for our brother, Hari Simran Singh Khalsa. May the New Year bring peace, prosperity and victory for all. Sat Nam.
