Sat Sri Akal
Welcome to Episode 3 of Sikhwithin.

Well, it looks like we're currently releasing shows at an average of one every 2 weeks or fornightly as we would say in the UK! The good news is that we now have some virtual tools that should be able to help us develop shows faster. However, I'm keen to not compromise both on quality and reliable sources - in the context of saying humbly that we hope that you enjoy the quality and content of each show.

This week we continue to explore the history of the Sikhs from the 5th to the 10th Guru and present the story of Guru Nanak's visit to Mecca showing us that God is everywhere. We also review the new CD by Balvinder Singh based in Australia and present more inspirational music.

Sat Sri Akal

The purpose of this podcast is to develop a 'bridge' in English to help us understand Sikhism and more about each other.

This week we continue to explore the history of the Sikhs to the 5th Guru and present a wonderful story entitled - The Scared Thread - teaching us that there is no value relying on worldly based materialistic items.

Guru Nanak has told us that a lasting thread for the soul can be made by practising in daily life the noble, lofty ideals of religion and morality. Let mercy be the cotton, contentment the thread, purity the knots and truth the needed twist. Blend
these virtues together into your everyday life. Thereby your soul will be be invested with a truly sacred thread. That thread will never get dirty, burnt, or lost and will never break but accompany your soul.

This week we also review Prabhu Nam Kaur and Snatam Kaur CD entitled: Mothers Blessing (with translations) and feature another snippet from Indi Kaur's wonderful accessible CD entitled: Keep on Walking. For more information please visit:
