HDH Acharya Swamishree visits the Sikh religion's headquaters, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Pujab


The spiritual, cultural, social and humanitarian projects instigated by His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree throughout the world have received much acclaim and admiration. It is not only world government and social leaders who have appreciated the constant endurance of Acharya Swamishree to aid society but also other religious sects have acknowledged His remarkable achievements.

The welfare activities of Acharya Swamishree are not targeted to people of any one religious denomination or to any single class of society. Acharya Swamishree's humanitarian projects extend to all, regardless of caste, creed or social stature.

Recognising His immense egalitarian services to mankind, the organising committee of the Sikh Faith's headquarters, the Golden Temple at Amritsar sent a special invitation to His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree to visit their Temple.

On the 23rd October 2001, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree together with a mandal of 40 Sants and numerous disciples visited the Golden Temple. The Temple's organising committee made special arrangements and took Acharya Swamishree and the group around the Temple and took them to where inner most sanctuary where the sacred Granth Sahib is kept. Acharya Swamishree was then taken to the VIP Office where the He was garlanded on behalf of the Sikh Faith. Shree Narendrapal Singh spoke at length about the Temple activities and also thanked Acharya Swamishree for blessing them by visiting their Temple. Narendrapal Singhji said, "Today is a new episode in the 600 year old history of the Sikh religion. This is a Golden day for the Golden Temple and the Sikh religion that such a large and eminent spiritual leader has travelled from Gujarat demonstrating His value and respect for Indian unity, regardless of faith. In all it's history, if there has been one single non-Sikh religious leader that has visited this Golden Temple, then Acharya Swamishree, it is You. As far as we can tell, this is the first such event. Before today, no-one has demonstrated such great universal brotherhood. Swamiji, the revolutionary step that you have taken today cannot be repaid back to you by us in any way."
