Canadian-based lay preacher Bibi Inderpal Kaur, sharing practical solutions to the challenges in our daily lives, had two well attended programmes in Seremban and Kajang this weekend.
In her talks – at Gurdwara Sahib Seremban yesterday and Gurdwara Sahib Kajang today (5 Feb 2017) – she tackled the issue of the wandering mind.
“We are trapped in a vicious cycle. Without the Guru, we just journey on. It’s better to pause, and ask the Guru if we are on the right path,” she says.
After her talk, the Sanggat engaged with Bibi Inderpal Kaur in a dialogue that lasted for almost an hour. “She makes a lot of sense,” said one person in the Sanggat.
Her talk series continue tomorrow (Monday, 6 Feb 2017) at Gurdwara Sahib Greentown in Ipoh, her only engagement in the Kinta Valley of Perak. She will also have speaking engagements at Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. She speaks in both Punjabi and English, aided by a power point presentation.
The engagements in Seremban and Kajang were part of the family day camps series entitled Leadership of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji organised by the Coalition of Malaysian Sikh Organisations (CMSO) in collaboration with various gurdwaras.
Dr Karminder Singh, a former secretary of the Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia (SNSM) and an active lay Sikh preacher, spoke on ‘Leadership of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Into the 21st Century’ at both camps.
Mohan Singh, a retired Malaysian police officer who was formerly the OCPD of Cheras, welcomed the talks.
“The talk by Dr Karminder was beautiful. We should have more such programmes – talks that are simple and plain, and in dual language,” he tells Asia Samachar. Mohan is also a Kajang gurdwara management committee member.
