My dear foreign brothers, WAHE GURU JI KA KHALSA WAHE GURU JI KI FATEH

I would like to draw your attention, and would like to ask you all that in GURUDWARAS which are situated in foreign countries, why the respected GURU PYARI SADH SANGAT take the GURU KA LANGER sitting on chairs.
As per the gurus HUKAM the sangat should have the LANGER sitting on the floor in
lines and everyone whether he/she is rich or poor should eat together.
Remember it is the love and affection which ours gurus tought us whether he/she is a enemy or a friend.

Dear Gurwinder Singh ji,

It is the policy of this forum to try to stay away from political issues ( something that can be quite hard to do ). At the same time I would like to say the following; The Sri Akal Takht is the seat of religious authority in the Sikh Dharma. Therefore, when they issue their edict that all should sit on the floor it should be followed. We here in our Sangat immediately stopped the practice of eating on benches or tables and began to make use of mats. We all eat on the floor as equals just as in the times of the Guru's. Thank you very much.

WAHE GURU JI KA KHALSA WAHE GURU JI KI FATEH
