UCL Bloomsbury and Sikh Musical Heritage are hosting a concert of Sikh Music in collaboration with LSE Sikh-Punjab Society and UCL Sikh Society. This is to commemorate the Gurpurab of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The evening promises to be a spectacular display of Sikh music and heritage, which will be presented in the way that the Gurus themselves performed Gurmat Sangeet and with the instruments that they blessed us with. The event has been organised to raise money for the 'Unique Orphanage' in India and aims to re-establish the missing link between music, spirituality, philosophy and healing.

In commemoration of the 301 Sahibzades’ shaheedi Purb

It is a great honour and privilege to be involved with you in this meditation/path for the Sahibzade. Amongst the billions of people around the globe you are the few great souls who have been chosen by Vaheguru to carry out this mahaan seva.

The commemoration of the anniversary of our shaheeds is now. In remembrance of this anniversary you yourselves are making Sikh history. Numbers has never swamped Sikhi, but it has always emphasised quality. You are the true examples of this quality.

The reason why you have been blessed with this seva...

The Sikh nation is a young way of life in comparison to other faiths. We have only just celebrated the 300th tricentenary of the Khalsa Panth as well as the 400th anniversary of the Parkash of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji being our ONE AND ONLY TRUE GURU JI. We do not follow any living, self-proclaimed fake Guru/Gurus.

This meditation/path is being commemorated because it has been 301 years since these great young souls sacrificed their lives so that anyone may choose their own denomination (faith/religion).

The Sahibzade were offered bribes of immense money and wealth, and even though they were at a young age, attempts were made to seduce them with beautiful women from across the Islamic nation in exchange to renounce Sikhi and convert to Islam. They profoundly refused each and every bribe that was offered to them. Suffering the consequences of trials and attempts of humiliation, as well as the most barbaric, unimaginable, physical and mental torture and finally being sentenced to death by being bricked alive. Remember your meditation/path is being done in their honour.

The pages of Sikh history are showered with numerous shaheeds such as Guru Angad Dev Ji, Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji and Mata Gujri Ji. There was also the Great Holocaust (Wadda Ghalughara) on 5th February 1762 where between 20,000 and 30,000 Sikh men, women and children were slaughtered in a massacre. Recent times to date include the horrific massacre attempt to ethnically cleanse Sikhs from Hindustan in 1984 by the tyrant evil hell-bent president of the Indian Government Indira Gandhi.

Your Sewa is…

1) To read 108 Japji Sahibs within a period time of 40 days. This will be done in your leisure. However, if possible try to follow this format best as possible:

- 1 in the morning
- 1 in the evening
- 1 before sleeping

Please note this is only a rough guide and that this meditation/path can be done as is convenient to you.

2) The first time you start your path/meditation, it is essential that you take a full shower/bath; this includes washing your hair and full body.

3) Throughout the 40-day period, you are required to shower daily (it is your own prerogative whether you wish to have a full shower/bath or just a body wash). If you are going to be completing a path later on in the day, it is not necessary to have another shower/bath as long as you have had your morning shower/bath.

4) Wherever possible try to wear clean clothes when reading your meditation/path.

5) Every time you meditate, it is essential that you cover your hair.

6) You do not have to complete the Japji Sahib path in one sitting. You can read it ending on a pauri, and then restart from that pauri later on.

7) You will be provided with a calendar to mark off the days. Also on the calendar there will be a tick chart. On completion of a Japji Sahib you can mark this off enabling you to know how many paths you have completed and how much time you have left.

8) As a rough guide you should be completing between 16 and 18 Japji Sahibs meditation/paths per week or 2 - 2 ½ (20 pauris) daily.

9) Catch up sessions will be done once a week during this 40-day period. These Catch up sessions will take place at Gurdwaras around the UK (please refer to website to find nearest Gurdwara, dates and times).

Welcome to London Met Sikh Society

London Metropolitan University Sikh Society
"Recognise All Mankind As One.” Tenth Sikh Master Guru Gobind Singh Ji

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
Kidhaaaaaaa (wats up people!)

What is the Sikh Society all about?

We are fun, we are exciting and we are happening!
Don’t worry we are not talking about some baba (saint) from India talking in Punjabi about something you have no idea whatsoever. Everything is in English and easy to understand. Isn’t that a relief?

London Met Sikh Society is not about us teaching you but it’s about us learning off each other and growing as a person. It’s simply about all the Sikhs and non- Sikhs coming together and sharing views and getting to know each other. Our events are such that you don’t want to miss. Some of the events that we organized last year were paint balling, bowling and end of year trip to Thorpe Park (inclusive of transport).
Events to look out for this year: 1ST Event – Chaa (tea) and Samosa (stuffed pastry) party, Horse riding, Go-karting, Archery, charity events and end of year trip to Alton Towers. Don’t forget all events are inclusive of food (as you know that where ever Sikhs go food has to be there before them and most of them are inclusive of transport).

So make sure you join because it’s a great way to get to know people from different backgrounds/courses/religion etc. So join today & get your friends to join + bring anyone along who’s up for some fun during the hectic uni schedule + wants some Free Food. Sikhism is about diversity so everyone’s welcome!

If you want to take part, play an active role in the Sikh society, or have any questions on anything email:

Until then keep safe!
