Additional Information

Sikh Student Association at UCLA is hosting Sikh Awareness Day to display a religion in India where the majority of Sikhs are from. Event will include pamphlets with information about the religion, turban tying so attendees can learn about the intricate art of tying turbans and the historical and spiritual importance of the turban. Food will be served, free of charge, as this is the practice of selfless service that Sikhism teaches. We will also have Sikh hymns being sung or played, and we will display the traditional instruments that our gurus made to sing the religious texts.

This event is designed to be an introduction to the practices of sikhism and the ways in which sikhs act on the teachings of our gurus. Sikhism is the 5th largest religion in the word, yet so few know about what it means to be a Sikh. Through this event, we hope to educate the UCLA campus and provide resources for those who want to learn more. With this event, we hope to have attendees feel like they have learned something valuable and new, and attendees can now recognize that Sikhs are fellow community members and students that are willing to help anyone in need.
