This year marks 550 years of the birth of the 1st Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who began the concept of Langar and Seva. The main idea behind the concept of Langar is community dining, equality amongst people and the feeling of oneness and sharing.
We would like to commemorate and honor the first Guru’s life and teachings by raising awareness and encouraging more people to sign up and register to become blood and organ donors.
While Langar Aid predominantly support with feeding the homeless, we are also keen to promote the ideals of selfless service which is very much rooted within the Sikh faith.
Sikhs perform many kinds of voluntary service caring for every aspect of the Gurdwara (place of worship) and Langar (community kitchen) facility. Seva is also performed on behalf of the community outside of the Gurdwara setting. The Sikh Gurus devoted their lives for the benefit of humanity and some even sacrificed their lives looking after the welfare of others.
