According to practitioners, Sikhism recognizes the divine potential in every individual and challenges all social inequalities, including those based on class, caste, gender, and profession. Join practicing Sikhs to celebrate the vibrant festival of Vaisakhi and learn about the living traditions of the fifth largest religion on earth.
An enlightening tour of the OM Lab, led by curator Risha Lee and educator Tashi Chodron, will be followed by interactive chanting with Sharan Bir Kaur Gill and storytelling from Sikh elder Jagir Bains. Afterwards, experience the energy and joy of Bhangra, the famous Sikh folk dance, with a lesson from Manpreet Kaur.
This program is presented with community partner India Home, one of the only nonprofits in the New York area offering culturally appropriate services to South Asian seniors, and members of the Sikh Cultural Center, the largest organization of its kind in New York. Meera Nair, Communications Manager for India Home, will present a short history of Sikhism.
Since 2008, India Home has been improving the quality of life for immigrant South Asian seniors by providing them with an array of services in a warm, caring, culturally sensitive environment. By balancing the day-to-day needs of community with advocacy at the city and state level, India Home gives seniors a say in the issues that directly impact their lives, including increased access to transportation services and better language access policies.
