My Sikhi & SikhRI Journey
I stand here before you not as a CEO of the Sikh Research Institute, nor as an author or poet, but as a lover …
A lover of Sikhi, and hopefully my words will flow from that place of love.

Vaisakhi at the Pentagon
Inni Kaur, Chair Sikh Research institute, speaks at the Pentagon’s second Vaisakhi event on the principle of Seva to commemorate the Sikh faith on May 1, 2015.
Seva - Selfless service; spiritually-grounded service; ego-less service. Yes, it is all this and more.
Seva in Sikh thought is embedded with social and political responsibility, with a strong focus on standing in service of the defenseless.
Seva flows from the principle that, “The Divine Light is in all; and that Light is the same.”
Therefore, there are no strangers, for the One resides in all.
First Vaiskhi commemorated at the Office of the Pentagon Chaplain
On April 25, 2014, for the first time in American history, the Office of the Pentagon Chaplain commemorated Vaisakhi, one of the most religiously significant days in the Sikh tradition.
Inni Kaur’s address:
Every year on Vaisakhi, Sikhs come together to commemorate and reflect on this significant historical event.
While the community holds a special place in its collective heart for this occasion, Vaisakhi is not a “holiday” in that the Sikh tradition does not regard any one time or day to be uniquely “holy.” Rather, it is an occasion for celebrating the community’s growth and for recalling a set of shared values and collective memories.

“One Man, Many Legacies” – My Pitaji
Bhai Vir Singh “One Man, Many Legacies”, Hoff Theatre, University of Maryland
24 Sept. 2016, Maryland, MD, USA
To the world, he is Bhai Vir Singh, the “Sixth River of Panjab.” To me, he is simply Pitaji. There are no family or blood ties, but there is a bond that transcends time and space. He used to say, “the ones who want to meet me, can meet me through my writings.” I met him through his verses. His monumental work, Guru Nanak Chamatkar, brought everything to life for me and I learned about the First Nanak through his eyes. His expositions of the Sabad, kindled within me the desire to experience the fragrance of Nam. This talk is about my journey of discovery, and falling in love with Sikhi, through Pitaji’s inspirational writings.
