While representing Global Sikh Community, Global Sikh Council Management observed that in spite of great efforts in place by many a Sikhi organizations, Sikh Gurduaras, the Sikh community is losing strength in numbers.
Four main reasons came to the top;
- The Message of Gurbani, even though most logical and scientific, is not reaching the masses.
- Sikh Parcharaks are not connected with the community members
- In an effort to fill that gap, a lot of good organizations are doing a fantastic work but the missing link is coordination of their efforts by a central body. And hence a lot of effort is wasted in duplication, triplication and umpteen times repetition.
- Other faiths groups, especially in Punjab, in fact all over India, are luring Sikh Community members with financial help and under false pretenses.
That prompted GSC management to form a Sikhi Renaissance team to address the causes.
The Sikhi Renaissance team has been very successful in coming up with specific action plans and implementing them. GSC has initiated three new projects with more to come.
- Kish Suneya Kish Kaheyae (ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਣੀਏ ਕਿਛੁ ਕਹੀਏ)
- Maa Boli Punjabi (ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਣੀਏ ਕਿਛੁ ਕਹੀਏ)
- Sikhi Parsaar (ਸਿੱਖੀ ਪਰਸਾਰ)
All the projects are now in pace and separate teams are providing services and managing the efforts. Details of these projects are provided on separate pages.
The Sikhi Renaissance team is continuing its efforts and possible next project is Ghar Ghar Ander Dharamsal ( ਘਰ ਘਰ ਅੰਦਰ ਧਰਮਸਾਲ) . Village and Mohalla level Gurbani Vichar (ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਵਿਚਾਰ) groups.
In each case, Approach is to cleanse the vessel of mind first then pour Gurbani Amrit
