Amid the prevailing situation due to the pandemic, SGPC has decided to carry forward its Dharam Prachar Lehar through online campaign, under which, a four-day online Gurmat (teachings of Sikh Gurus) workshop for the preachers (pracharaks) was inaugurated at the Dharam Prachar Committee office here on Monday.

At the inauguration of the workshop, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur addressed the preachers from different districts of Punjab and other states and asked them to make maximum efforts to connect children and youth with Gurmat through the internet.

Under the management of SGPC’s Dharam Prachar Committee and different Sikh missions, 250 pracharaks, 39 dhadi jathas (ballad-singing groups) and 54 kavishar jathas (poetry groups) are providing Dharam Prachar sewa. “At present, it is not possible for these preaching groups to reach out to the sangat and preach Gurmat through large gatherings or programmes. Therefore, it has been decided to launch an online Dharam Prachar Lehar,” she said.

In this regard, four-day online camps of preachers and ballad-poetry groups are being organised. The first camp has been started for the preachers, following which, the camps would also be organised for the ballad-singing and poetry groups.

She said under this movement, every day, lessons will be given and competitions in gurbani recitation, poetry, quiz, speech, etc will also be conducted. On this occasion SGPC members Bhai Manjit Singh Bhurakohna, Bhai Harpal Singh Jalla, assistant secretary Kulwinder Singh Ramdas, were present.
