Object Of Kirtan

Kirtan is not performed to make Gurbani pleasing and palatable. The Gurus were very clear about its objective. They warned the listeners not to confuse it with other types of music or deem it as a mode of entertainment. The Guru has pronounced that Kirtan is the magical formula to keep the human soul afloat in the dark era of Kaljug provided the devotee sings the pure melodies with his or her heart closely focused on the meaning and true spirit of the Gurbani.< The filth of our bad actions is removed by listening and practising the teachings of the Guru. Sacred Music has an equally important place in our life, as it helps to preserve our heritage and reminds of our moral duties as Sikhs to live up to the high standards set by our forefathers.

Gurdwara Sahib Glenwood Sydney

The Gurudwara Sahib at Glenwood is the hub of religious and community activities all year round. The members of the Sikh community visit the Gurudwara Sahib to pray, meditate and listen to the teachings and hymns from Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji .Australian Sikh Association is the largest registered body of the Sikhs in the Southern Hemisphere. It manages the Gurudwara Sahib at Glenwood, NSW and serves the Sikh Community in the Greater Western and North-West Regions of the Sydney metro area.
In 1969 the first organisation of the Sikh community in Sydney was formed named the ‘Sikh Cultural Society’. It was registered as a charitable organisation in 1970. Since that time it has been its dream to establish a ‘Sikh Centre’, which could cater adequately for the many needs of the Sikh community in the modern progressive society of Australia. The opening of the Gurudwara Sahib (Sikh place of worship, prayer, meditation and religious congregation) was the first step in the fulfilment of these aspirations.
Since 1970, a number of changes and developments in the organisation have occurred. In 1983, the ‘Sikh Cultural Society’ merged with another Sikh cultural organisation, the ‘Australian Sikh Club’ to form a new organisation named the ‘Australian Sikh Association’. A new constitution was drawn up to include the objectives of both organisations. The constitution was revised in 1988 so that the Australian Sikh Association could be incorporated.
The Sikh meeting place for worship is called the Gurudwara Sahib and it literally means “guru’s door”. The members of the Sikh congregation are called sangat. All people are welcome to visit any of the Gurudwara Sahib regardless of caste, color, or creed. A visitor to the Gurudwara Sahib is required to remove shoes, and cover the head. It is advisable to wear modest attire.
Gurudwara Sahib houses Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and may be either a simple or elaborate building. The Nishan Sahib, Sikh flag, is installed on Gurudwara Sahib’s grounds and flies high above the gurdwara complex, so that it can be seen by those approaching the Gurudwara.
