It was a full house for the last two days at the Gurdwara Sahib Petaling Jaya for the annual kirtan darbar in conjunction with the parkash dihara (birthday) of Guru Har Kishan Sahib, the eight Guru of the Sikhs.
Today, the organisers, Petaling Jaya Naujawans, are expecting a bigger turnout, especially for the grand finale when all the raagi jathas participating will perform kirtan together, in what is dubbed as the aatam-ras session.
“The aatam-ras session is going to be awesome, it will be inspirational,” GSPJ secretary Awtar Singh ‘Terry’, one of the key organisers of the event, told Asia Samachar.
The kirtan jathas involved are Bhai Davinder Singh Sodhi, Bhai Gagandeep Singh and Bhai Sarabjit Singh, while the kathakaar (speaker) is Bhai Dharamveer Singh.
The same groups conducted kirtan and katha earlier at Gurdwara Sahib Butterworth, Penang (13-14 July) and Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Ipoh, Perak (15-16 July).
