SRI GURDWARA SINGH SABHA, SURREY

 

Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara is located on 132nd Street and 81 Avenue is Surrey, British Columbia. The Gurdwara Sahib has imposing building, two Diwan halls, spacious langar hall, class rooms to teach Punjabi classes, sprawling parking space and Nishan Sahib, that towers above Vancouver’s mountain range, glorifying historic moments of the Sikh community.

The Gurdwara Sahib’s management gave a worthy thought when it came to registration of the name for the society. They chose ‘Singh Sabha’ as its name, to treasure the ethos and principles of the Singh Sabha movement that steered Sikhs away from the ill facets of life that Sikhism did not stand for.

According to Sardar Harbans Singh in his iconic work, The Heritage of the Sikhs, "The Singh Sabha which followed them had a much deeper impact. It influenced the entire Sikh Community and reoriented its outlook and spirit. Since the days of the Gurus nothing so vital had transpired to fertilize the consciousness of the Sikhs. The Singh Sabha by leavening the intellectual and cultural processes brought a new dimension to the inner life of the community and enlarged its heritage. Starting in the seventies of the last century, it marked a turning-point in Sikh history. It touched Sikhism to its very roots, and made it a living force once again. The stimulus it provided has shaped the Sikhs' attitude and aspiration over the past one hundred years.”

The Gurdwara Sahib and its leadership believe in carrying forward these principles of Sikh identity among the Sikh Sangat of the Lower mainland, Metro Vancouver. In its own humble way, the management of the Gurdwara, is determined to play a pivotal role for the spread of Gurbani, Punjabi language and Sikh history & traditions among all walks of life.

The management of the Gurdwara Sahib welcomes everyone who would like to associate himself/herself with the programs of the Gurdwara Sahib, so that the baton of the Sikh ethics enshrined in the Singh Sabha movement could be passed on to the next generation.
