Emphasis on Next Generation
As a progressive Sangat, we understand that the youth is our future and immersing them in Simran, Keertan, Sangat, and Seva will have priceless benefits going forward. They themselves have started consistent youth programs where they run divaans on their own. Once a week, they have youth Simran programs and approximately once a month, they run youth Keertan Darbars.
Message from our Youth
hm AwdmI hW iek dmI muhliq muhqu n jwxw ]
Hum aadhamee haa(n) ik dhamee muhalat muhat na jaanaa ||
We are human beings of the briefest moment; we do not know the appointed time of our departure.

Naanak binavai tisai sarevahu jaa kay jeea paraanaa ||1||
Prays Nanak, serve the One, to whom our soul and breath of life belong. ||1||
As we try to understand Gurbani, we realize that this life really isn't long. We don't know what tomorrow will bring. We are humans for just one breath so we cannot waste any opportunity to join in Sangat and remember the One who sustains our each and every breath.
Saturday Simran Programs
We have Divaans that run from 2:45pm-5:30pm on Saturdays. The order of events is as follows: Prakash, one hour of Simran, Discussion, Keertan, Sukhaasan. We hold programs on alternating Saturdays at Guru Nanak Mission Gurudwara Sahib.
Please join our WhatsApp group at this invitation link:
Even if you don't know anything about Sikhi, we are trying to connect all Sikh youth in the Northern New Jersey-New York-Connecticut area. We are all in it together, providing a supportive community so we can all become better Sikhs.
You can also contact Mohkum Singh at 917-207-6533 for any questions or to be added to the group, or to be added to the Youth Keertan Darbar schedule.
