Sewa (Khalsa Aid The Track)

A place in God’s court can only be attained if we do service to others in this world… Wandering ascetics, warriors, celibates, holy men, none of them can obtain moksha without performing sewa. - Guru Granth Sahib

Let's keep this post short and sweet by getting straight to the point. All Sikhs should be prepared to give up some of their time, talents and energy to help others. Sikhism teaches that people should try to become less self-centered (manmukh) and more God-centered (Gurmukh) by living their lives in the selfless service of others (sewa). This is just one of the teachings from Guru Granth Sahib, also referred to as the everliving Guru. Guru Gobind Singh Ji taught the people to recognise the entire human race as one. Meaning everyone should help one another, no one individual is superior to another; everyone is equal. The same message that Khalsa Aid is spreading about universal love and equality. Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Bala and Mardana were known to sing meledious praises to God (kirtan), most of the teachings were in forms of hyms and verses. Guru Nanak saw music as an essential tool to spirtually connect with God, making it an important element in Sikhism. Khalsa Aid brings together beautiful vocals and visual highlighting the significance of sewa and its benefits. A little historical background, they were established in 1999, Khalsa Aid is an international non-profit aid and relief organisation founded on the Sikh principles of selfless service and universal love. Khalsa Aid is a UK Registered Charity (#1080374) with the UK Charities Commission and has volunteered in North America & Asia. Khalsa Aid has provided relief assistance to victims of disasters, wars, and other tragic events around the world.
