Rexdale Gurudwara

Sikh Spiritual Center
Rexdale Gurughar
9 Carrier Drive

This is my home Gurudwara (like home school;). I really like this Gurudwara and this is where we go most of the time. There is in fact another Gurughar, which is just as far from my home: York Gurudwara.

For now, here are some pictures of the Rexdale Gurudwara. Although the Gurudwara is mostly crowded with devoted sangat, I took these pictures on a Friday afternoon, around 3ish.


The Nishan Sahib!!! And I love this pic :)

The Sikh Spiritual Centre: The Rexdale Gurughar!

That is the very entrance to the Gurughar and my mom in the pic :)

This is at the entrance. On the left is the Langar Hall and on the right is the Gurudwara offices and then stairway leading to 6 other halls upstairs, I think for personal Akhand Paaths and Anand Karajs!

Don't you just love the setting? J'dore voila hall. I think among all the Gurudware I've been to in Toronto or Waterloo, I think this is the best decorated. Kudos to the new president. I have seen this Gurudwara go from plain to fame. I think he is doing a nicely devoted job :)

Satnam Waheguru! Matha Teko :)

All the shastra placement in front of SGGS: I guess to remind us all of the concept of Sant Sipahi. Usually when I see so much iron shastra, I am reminded of Sarbloh Bhainji: one of the most inspiring Sikhs I have ever met. When I first met her, I had to ask daddy to explain to me what her name exactly meant. I doubt if anyone faces even half the challenges as she does by keeping the Khalsa swaroop. I love her! And I am so proud of her :D Also, I remember in Sikhism class, Dr. Jakobsh once had the concept of Sant sipahi for debate and the increasing ironing of the religion, which is reflective in big, huge, kade and the rapid increase in names like Sarbhloh...

Ok, I need to know as to what we call this place under the Gumband...where Sri Guru Granth Sahib is seated.

The Kirtan sej!

This pic from the side, near the library.

This bibiji, Swaran Kaur, saw me taking pictures and she was so cute, she asked me if I'll take her pic...aww. It was sweet. After I was done, she asked me if I 'll come back to give her a printed copy:) And yes! I will some time next week.

I was trying to get a good view of the entire hall. I wish I could have done a better job:( There is much for me to learn about photography!

This is the last pic I took, before exiting. Someone was just setting up the Gurbani translation of the Kirtan being done by the raagis. It is incredible to see Bhaijis doing kirtan with such russ, even when there is no sangat to enjoy it or cherish it:) I guess doing kirtan at such times, gives these babajis to be one with Waheguru, with minimal distractions. God bless them!
