Oneness

About US

“Oneness – A Light for Humanity” is based on Guru Nanak’s teachings of love, peace, equality and universal brotherhood. Guru Nanak Dev Ji was born in November 1469 in Talwandi, Punjab, India (now known as Nankana Sahib, Punjab, Pakistan). He has been a strong advocate of three main principles: Naam Japna (Meditation in the name of God), Vand Chakna (Always share) and Kirat Karna (Honest Living). This Event will showcase how these principles have enlightened generations since the 15th century and how it will continue to uplift and influence the spiritual well-being of our society. We believe this is a great opportunity for people seeking Spiritual Wisdom and Universal Oneness to come together.

“Oneness – A Light for Humanity” will have eminent speakers; scholars; political and spiritual leaders and senior executives from private, public and voluntary sector organizations, from all backgrounds and nationalities. The wisdom shared by these attendees will be a great amalgamation, to commemorate Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 550th Illumination Anniversary.
