Sat Sri Akal

Sat Sri Akaal illuminates the significance behind the common Sikh greeting, which many in the community utter daily without fully grasping its profound meaning. The film explores how most Sikhs mispronounce the phrase as “Sas Ri Kaal” or “Shashi Kaal Ji” rather than the correct “Sat Sri Akaal.”

Sat Sri Akaal delves into roots of this phrase in the Sikh tradition. It aims to educate viewers on the true essence behind the greeting. It encourages reflection on how we can recapture the essence of “Sat Sri Akaal” and restore understanding of its original purpose.

Home Sweet Home

The NBC show Home Sweet Home featured an interesting episode where a Southern California Sikh family exchanged homes for a week with a Jewish family. By living in each other’s households, meeting relatives and neighbors, they gained insights into their respective cultures and faiths. This immersive experience facilitated mutual understanding between the families as they experienced one another’s traditions firsthand. Through the simple act of sharing meals, having conversations, and observing daily rituals in an authentic setting, deep bonds and empathy were fostered. 

This session is free!

Come in and enjoy hours of free entertainment.
