Pictures from the Samagam

More pictures from the smagam at Northolt:


akhand path in progress - gnnsj always have pathi and one sewadar always present during akhand path duty




appears to be a high level meeting




sant satnam singh does really excellent classical kirtan




I forget his name, but this bhai sahib ji gave a rousing speech after the gatka display




gurumustuk seems to be demontrating kung fu or perhaps tai chi?




amazing how well the sewadars managed the whole event - I salute them all




khalsa style




firework display on the first day

What is gnnsj?

msingh said...

gnnsj stands for Guru Nanak Niskam Sewak Jatha, a jatha started by Sant Puran Singh ji about 30 years ago here in the UK. They don't put much info on their website, www.gnnsj.org but are doing good sewa, including 'gold sewa' of harmandir Sahib, and a very well received participation in a big interfaith programme in Barcelona. I did a quick search and found the follwing link

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for the link :)

Also, just wondering, is this Sant Puran Singh, the great Bhagat Puran Singh of Pingalwara society??
Sorry for my scanty knowledge :P

msingh said...

sikhi seeker ji it's not Bhagat Puran Singh og Pingalwara society. Try the following links for info on sant puran singh:

anon have to agree - wazir singh did indeed come across as a 'top dude'

GNNSJ was founded by Sant Baba Puran Singh more than 30 years ago. Their successors were Bhai Sahib Bhai Norang Singh ji and Bhai Sahib Bhai Mohinder Singh ji. The Gurdwara itself has developed a lot from just a few square metres too a complex with 3 langar halls, 6 darbar halls, over 80 rooms and have opened asthaans in Hounslow, Leeds and Kericho in Kenya. Also the NCA complex has been completed and is adjoining to the GUrdwara and is absolutely amazing. All i can say is that going to GNNSJ is an truly amazingn experience and it was a privelege to take amrit there.
