“ Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights. But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart's knowledge.

You would know in words that which you have always known in thought. You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams. ”

- 'The Prophet' by Khalil Gibran

Our Inspiration

“ The eyes of the Khalsa glow with the vision of the Invisible... On the bed of thorns, she lies on roses. Outside is immaterial; it is the aim of life that matters... The Khalsa looks at the world from a supreme height, blessing all, helping all, loving all, with his beautiful looks from the inner self of all life. ”

- Professor Puran Singh
