Patiala, April 2

Dr Marcus Braybrooke, a scholar in the field of interfaith studies from Oxford, England, discussed the teachings of Sikh Gurus and his spiritual journey during a lecture organised at Punjabi University here.

Braybrooke, sharing his experience from study on different religions, said there was an urgent need for increasing c-operation among people of different faiths. “We need to reject all forms of racism, sexism and discrimination of every kind,” he said. He said strengthening religious ties was the need of the hour.

Presiding over the lecture, Dr Dharam Singh, former editor-in-chief, Encyclopaedia of Sikhism, referred to the universal elements of Sikhism and emphasised on the need for taking the message of the Gurus to a wider audience. “The Sikh message is highly relevant to many of the challenges facing humankind today,” he said.
