The Langar or FREE community kitchen is a hallmark of the Sikh faith. It was established by the first Guru of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, around the year of 1481. It is designed to uphold the principle of equality between all people of the world regardless of religion, caste, colour, creed, age, gender, or social status; to eliminate the extreme poverty in the world, and to bring about the birth of “caring communities”. In addition to the ideals of equality, the tradition of Langar expresses the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness, and oneness of all humankind. “..the Light of God is in all hearts.” (Guru Granth Sahib, 282)
Langar was started by the 1st Guru of the Sikhs, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The Guru has become the second most travelled person in history, stating we must be focused on the One at all times and live and practise by the truth. There are 3 Golden Rules that Sikhs must follow.
Naam Japo – Remember that One Truth at all times.
Kirat Karo – Earn an honest living
Vandh Chakko – Share what you have with others
We are extremely proud to be supported by these wonderful, generous organisations.
Without this support, none of our urgently needed work would be possible.
