Pray for Peace: Farmers' Protest

A call for prayers for a peaceful resolution of the farmer's protest in Punjab.

We invite you to pray with us for all of the farmers, and for a peaceful resolution of the farmers' protest.

"Punjab is not just a land with borders, but it is a brotherhood among the people living there. The nectar of the five rivers that flow from the Himalayas gives people the strength to stand against any injustice. The fruit of the seeds that are sown in the fertile land fills the stomach of not only 136 crore Indians living in the country but also the people outside our country. The prayers from the Gurudwara’s, Temple's, Masjid's are first for the wellness of the entire mankind and then for self." —Jagjeevan Singh

In this spirit, we offer a Shabad from Guru Amar Das Ji for Corn-Grain and Rain:

When the earth is in distress,
It attunes itself with love
And sends out a prayer.
The True One hears it,
And with total ease
Is pleased to give Its strength and steadiness.
It sends a command to the Power of Rain,
And the rain pours down in torrents.
The wealth of grain and corn grows thick.
A person cannot describe its value.
Oh Naanak, appreciate the Divine Identity.
You, Divine One, cause the life-giving food to be given to all the creatures.
Eating this, peace grows,
And the cycle of pain
Comes no more.
