Kindly note that the Guiding Principles of the 2018 Parliament are:

(1) respectful dialogue: we listen and speak with respect

(2) non-proselytizing: we do not attempt to convert others or speak derogatorily about any tradition

(3) willingness to explore a wide variety of topics: we embody compassion as we engage in difficult conversations.

– significant international Sikh presence and engagement,
– presentations at plenary and parallel sessions focused on interfaith and intrafaith issues, and
– Guru ka Langar, if possible, at the parliament to be led by the local Sikh community.

The task force members include Sikh representatives from Canada, US, and across the world. Suggestions and queries about Sikh participation in the upcoming parliament can be emailed to parliamentsikh@gmail.com
