    I went to pay my respects at Brisbane Gurdwara (Australia) this morning. It's a different Gurdwara in that the front door is about 5 metres away from Guru Sahib.

    It is also the first Gurdwara I've visited that gives karah prashad when you just go to matha tek and there is nothing else going on. But, since I didn't know, I did my matha tek and went to leave and some men were trying to speak to me in Punjabi and luckily there was a young man doing some paath who told me they were trying to tell me to take the blessing, so I went up to the sevadar and he gave me some prashad. The young man said that if I was hungry I could go to the next room for breakfast.

    I went back and said thank you to the older men and they gave me huge smiles and a nod.

    Congrats, Brisbane Gurdwara, you're the friendliest one I've been to so far. :)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
