During this program, attendees have an opportunity to listen to speeches from prominent interfaith Shri Shri 1008 Mahamandaleshwar Swami Kailashanand Brahamchari ji, Baba Lakha Ji from Nanaksar and a Muslin Saint Gulam Haider Qaderi of Malerkotla.
The Sikh baptismal Amrit ceremony of initiation has its origins in early April of 1699 on the Vaisakhi festival of ancient Punjab. Guru Gobind Rai, the 10th guru of the Sikhs, stood with his sword in hand, and called to a crowd of thousands who had assembled in the Fort of Kesgar at Anandpur. He asked for volunteers willing to give their heads. The five men who stepped forward are known as the five beloved ones. The five beloved ones went on to baptize thousands of people. The Khalsa initiates of 1699 drank the immortalizing nectar of Amrit to prepare for battle with Mughals who had been forcing local populations to convert to Islam by sword point.
