The Sikhi Foundation Course, a new initiative by the Sikh Centre, a unit of the Central Sikh Gurdwara Board Singapore (CSGB), was successful launched on April 24.

Attended by Sikh adults from all ages and from all walks of life, the event was also graced by non-Sikhs interested in learning about Sikhi, its universal teachings and values in a harmonious multi racial society.

The different approach and unique structure of the curriculum has been meticulously planned by a distinguished and knowledgeable team comprising Gyanis Jagdeep Singh and Jagsir Singh and Sikhi staff Kanwaldeep Singh and Satvinder Singh.

An introductory lecture presented by Sikh Centre in-house lecturer Satvinder Singh captivated the participants with his presentation, and also gave a brief overview and a glimpse of the course content and its distinctiveness.

The year-long course of 40 lessons will encompass History of the 10 Sikh Gurus, the messages and their methods of teaching by being personal role models. The lessons will also include a deeper understanding of Shabad and Gurbani with an introduction to basic Gurbani grammar.

The participative and interactive course is targeted at inspiring and stimulating further self-learning and a deeper exploration into pursuing a Sikhi way of life.
