SSM Mumbai Offers Langar Seva at Malad Gurudwara
Langar is a community act of service or seva where vegetarian food is distributed to people in a gurudwara, the Sikh place of worship. Guru Nanak, the revered Sikh guru, believed that food must be provided to people irrespective of their caste, creed, color, or status.
Team SSM Mumbai initiated the Langar Seva Project to offer langar at the Malad Gurudwara from the 15th of January, 2022 and will continue to do so on every Saturday for the the next three months. Many underprivileged people, laborers, and daily wage workers come here to partake of the meals provided here.
The team members gathered at the gurudwara at 12.30 p.m. The Bhaiji, priest began the seva by eloquently reciting the Ardas to the Guru Granth Sahib seeking the blessings of the Divine. The team members then served a simple yet filling meal of rice, lentils, vegetables, and a sweet to 60 people who had arrived there.
The team members were thrilled to note that their brethren had eaten to their heart's content by the end of the langar seva.
