In yoga practice, it is necessary to surrender the finite sense of self to the Infinite. For those practicing Sikh Dharma, this relationship to the Infinite is experienced through the Guru. “Gurdwara” means “gateway” or “door” to the Guru and refers to a place that houses the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the Living Guru of Sikh Dharma. All are welcome to participate in the Gurdwara ceremony. Gurdwara may seem like it is “mostly for Sikhs,” but really, it is for everyone so that we can each recognize the mastery of the inner Self. When each of us comes to bow before the Guru, the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, we are simply bowing to that brightest divine light within ourselves.
We have two 3HO Ashrams that host Gurdwara in the Bay Area, in San Francisco and San Leandro.
