General Info:
The Sikh Foundation was founded in 1967 to promote the heritage and future of Sikhism. It is a non-profit and non-political charitable organization. On the threshold of the twenty-first century, it is the destiny of the Sikh people to be a thriving and contributing international community. The teachings and exemplary lives of the ten Sikh Gurus from Nanak to Gobind Singh are our beacons. We inherit the martydoms of Guru Arjan, Guru Tegh Bahadur, his disciples and the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh. Guru Tegh Bahadur set the supreme secular example in human history when he laid down his life for the freedom of other religions. We are further inspired by five centuries of artistic and intellectual achievements and by our forefathers who came to the West as poor farm laborers, yet in the midst of their struggle for survival still found resources to lead the international movement for India's independence. Today their descendants can be found at the top of professions from agriculture to medicine, from law to literature, from art to music and from design to hi-technology. We must learn to celebrate the success of our community members. We must give all the tools necessary to our children to be good Sikhs as well as successful and contributing members of their society. It lies with those of us in the elder generations to pass to them and their descendants the essence of our heritage its most sophisticated expression to serve as the basis of a modern global Sikh culture. We also need to ensure that our friends of other faiths, races and cultures understand who and what we are. We must present the beauty of our heritage without chauvism. The wisdom, philosophy and arts of the Sikh faith belong to the world and it is time now to bring them into the light.
