WAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA! WAHEGURU JI KI FATEH! Sangat ji, I went to the gurdwara for the first time last night. Not literally the first time: I've walked in to matha taykna or meditate before, but this was the first time I actually went and spent time with the sangat and sang kirtan and "did" the Ardas. (I use the quotation marks because I don't have them memorized so I didn't actually say them.) When I first walked in there were only two people in the langar hall: one of the kirtani and Bhai Kulbir Singh. They both sort of stared at me at first with a very surprised look, but it turns out that was because their website hadn't been updated in awhile and I was very early. We spoke for a long time about how I came to Sikhi and what resources I have been using to learn on my own, etc. More people began to arrive and we all went upstairs. Sangat ji, when rehraas sahib began it was like....almost like a warm sea breeze blowing through me. When the kirtan began, it was as though the sun was glowing inside my chest. And when SGGS passed me during sukhaasan, I felt tears welling up in my eyes. It was like coming home.
