The First Akhandh Paath in China

May 19, 2014 by Atma Singh (Source: Sikhnet.com)

Most of the Chinese ladies cried reading the Guru. After decades of communism and atheism the need to experience spirituality is so strong that emotions overflow.

Now, at Ajai Alai Center, we are doing prakash of the Guru every morning and sukhasan every evening.

Also, the prashad recipe is now part of the new born 3HO Chinese community.

Satmukh Singh, who started all this process in China six years ago must be honored for the mission.
