Our speaker was Dr. Harbans Singh Sraon.  He told about Sikhism that was founded in about 1500AD. It is the 5th largest religion in the world (~26 million members in the world; ~1 million in America). Most of the US population in on the west coast. A Sikh man is easily identified by his turban and the woman by her long scarf.   The Sikh spiritual values are truth, love, humility, contentment, forgiveness, righteousness, wisdom and courage. The three golden rules are 1) earning livelyhood with honesty,dignity and honor, 2) mindful meditation with love and devotion, and 3) caring and sharing with others, especially those in need. Sikhs believe in gender equality. Siks are found in almost every field and profession in the world. The handout provided by Dr. Sraon may be downloaded by clicking Speaker Handout.
