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.
