Sangat in Ireland was blessed by Guru jee to organise 2nd International Akand Kirtan Samagham on the eve of Guru Arjun Dev Jee's Prakash Deehara in Dublin Gurdwara on 27-28 May. Kirtan Seva was done by Sevadaars of AKJ uk, like always, kirtan was very chardi kala. Guru Jee also blessed dublin sangat with Amrit Di Daat. Five Ablakhi got Khande di Pahul, including dass. On Saturday evening, there was youth discussion session, where sangat had the opportunity to listen to Gurmukh Pyare from Uk, and then had questions regarding amrit. It was very enjoyable as Bhai Jatinder Singh made everyone to speak why he/she hadn't take khande de pahul yet!! still some people managed to avoid their turn by changing sides :)

Today is 15th May 2005, a normal day for me and most of you out there. But it holds a special place for Bhai Jasbir Singh (Guru ke Vazeer-Granthi Singh at Dublin gurdwara. 15th may marks the completion of a Decade long seva of Bhai Sahib in Dublin Gurdwara. Bhai Sahib came to Dublin on 15 May 1996 and has been in Guru Sahib's Seva ever since.Bhai Sahib has lot of pyar for Guru Sahib's seva. Bhai sahib is often praised for his service in the langar. He always make sure that anybody coming to Guru sahib's darshan do not go back without having langar or tea! Hope Guru Sahib would continue to take seva from Bhai Jasbir Singh in future as well
Bhai Sahib blongs to Garhshankar town in Hoshiarpur District in Punjab.
Can any one guess that how many laguages are being spoken in Ireland? ...10 or 25 or 70 or 100?.........exact no is 167, if you believe the researchers of National University of Ireland, Maynooth. I was quite taken aback by the number itself, and...well.. as expected Punjabi is one of them! list is quite long, does't feel like typing it ....what i will do is scan it and then upload it.....it is quite insteresting to see that so many languages are new to us .....
