Yesterday, a group of 22 young Irish men & women from Belfast visited Gurdwara Guru Nanak Darbar, Dublin. The visit was hosted by Irish Sikh Council. The group reached Gurdwara Sahib at 2pm.
Listening to Talk. Visitors listened to presentation with great interest and curiosity. Then at the end of presentation, they asked lot of questions and whole discussion continued for nearly 40 minutes.Most of questions centered around Racism, Kirpan, Marriage, Bringing Up of young kids in Ireland, purpose of coming to Ireland. With Guru Sahib Kirpa, all the questions were answered to satisfaction of Visitors. One girl made the local Sangat Laugh, when she asked, "do you need License to wear Kirpan?"
Then Bhai Sahib read Anand Sahib and did ardass. Bhai Gurmeet Singh served the parshaad to Sangat.
