How does the Gurdwara enable Sikhs to worship?
- The head covering helps them to think just about what they are doing in this moment.
- Taking off the shoes helps people be in the moment because we wear shoes everywhere.
- The four doors means that everyone from all four corners of the world are welcome whatever religion they are.
- The washing of hands is because it means you are clean and ready to worship.
- In the prayer hall men and women are allowed to sit together because they are all equal.
- To worship they meditate
- To pay respect when visiting the platform with the book on it - Guru Granth Sahib - first you have to rest your forehead on the ground.
- The Langar is a free community kitchen for all visitors of all religions.
