    Sat Sri Akaal!

    We are happy to be part of this forum community and hope to contribute interesting and thought provoking additions.

    The Sikh Foundation of Palo Alto, CA has taken on a new look and added some interesting and inspiring new features.

    We introduced a new orginal series that focuses on the Oportunities and Challenges for Sikh Academics.

    Each month one article will be written by a Sikh Studies professor and the other by a credible community member.

    So over a period of time, we should receive a detailed understanding of the activities of the educators, their interests, challenges, opportunities, teaching approaches and future plans, while the educators would become aware of the desires and priorities of the Sikh community.

    As well as known and creditable community members, who have a deep interest in the subject, have been invited to write about subjects and issues important to the Sikh community.

    So far our articles include:

    Wonderful! I hope that we receive periodic updates. Perhaps these could even be included in our SPN Calendar.

    I have been an admirer and reader of your web site for a long time. High quality publications and wonderful resources for Sikhism.
