Sodhi Vikram Singh- Sri Anandpur Sahib Wale receiving and honouring the Archbishop of Canterbury who is the Head of the Church of England-Protestant Church at the Darbar Sahib Complex of Harmandir Sahib. He is on a visit to celebrate the 550 years birth celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Sending out a strong global message of the relevance of interfaith dialogue and universal brotherhood. Sarbat da Bhalla as enunciated by Baba Nanak and the central message of the Sikh Faith, in these times of suspicion and global conflict…..

So many shots in these videos took me down memory lane. Also made me realize how much history was associated with these places within the campus that we took for granted. Thank you so much for sharing!!
