Sikh-ing Understanding

Year 3 RE Undergraduates visited the Gurdwara Sri Harkishan Sahib Ji in Manchester to hear about Sikh beliefs and history and experience Langar.  On a cold morning we entered the gurdwara, removed our shoes and covered our heads.  ‘Abs’ a young member of the congregation gave us a talk outlining many elements of Sikhism and answered many questions that the students found helpful in their developing knowledge of the faith – and in answering their assessment.

We were then treated to a reading from the Guru Granth Sahib Ji and shown how the Guru is treated with respect.  The final treat was the Langar, a potato dish and a lentil dish with bread and a drink.
