    I have a plan to do a 'Sikh trip' within North America in my upcoming free-time such as Thanksgiving break or Spring Break. Perhaps the end of the Summer. This leads me to my final question. Where should I go to do a Sikh trip Vancouver or Santa Fe? Vanouver has a large Punjabi Sikh community that has many lapsed or less than practicing members integrated into the mainstream culture, where as Santa Fe has many many American-converts who are going agains the Mainstream cultures to hold up Sikhism.

    The two nearest epicenters of Sikhism in N.AM are Vancouver and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Where do you think would be the best place to go to immerse oneself. ...Thoughts?

    If it were me, I would just get in the car and head off for destinations unknown, follow your heart, I am sure it would be an interesting adventure


    However out of the two , I would say Vancouver would give you a better chance of seeing 'traditional' Sikhism

    I think you should go to Santa Fe, as per your own Opinion of the population being more true & real.

    I always feel my most spiritually connected when surrounded by nature, e.g. sleeping under the stars in the desert or camping in a forest. That's my recommendation japposatnamwaheguru:

    I would love to see the Aurora Borealis.

    For now, the most magnificent place I've been to so far is the Grand Canyon...standing on the edge of the abyss, (whilst scared of heights!), makes you feel like an insignificant speck against the vast wonder of Creation...

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!
