Thanks once again for a wonderful tour of the Gur Sikh Temple this morning. I learned so much about Sikhism and Sikh culture that I had not known before. I knew about the Komagata Maru incident as I have heard Satwinder speak about it and also have seen a play about it many years ago in Vancouver. I have been thinking about what you told us today and I will definitely be doing some research into your culture. There were so many things which stood out for me; all paths lead to one God, no matter how one worships, that the word, Sikh, means learning, among others.My Father was in India and Burma during the last war. He came away with a love of the culture which he shared with us. He actually wrote a book about his time there, which I treasure highly. Thank you again, and I look forward to learning more.
