    Sat sri akal!

    I am a Non-Sikh, a Unitarian psychotherapist from the USA living in Canada. I am working with Sikhs (and Christians, Muslims and others) who have survived torture. I am looking for a good quote referring to the obligation to welcome all people, no matter their origins or beliefs. I have received a warm welcome in Gurdwaras in India and Canada, and seen it in action. I am preparing a presentation to my coreligionists, and would like to say something pithy and to the point.

    Thanks!

    David

    Dear David

    you are not a stranger.
    You are part of us and we are part of you and we are all one.

    the difference you see are only superficial encoded in the language you use.

    In it you group and segregate and classify to identify the differences .

    see the undelying unity of al living speciies.

    Ek ho hum balak.

    love

    Welcome dear david :)

    Manas ki Jaat Sabey Eke Pehchanbo
    meaning: Mankind is ONE race
    extended meaning: There is no point in creating discriminating distinctions based on gender, colour, country, clans etc.

    Regards.
