The Gobind 350 exhibition is a tribute to the life and legacy of the Sikh Guru , and will feature the works of three renowned Sikh artists.

The Sikhs give special importance to their gurus or teachers, whose words they believe are Divine ordinances. Sikhs believe Guru Gobind Singh had incarnated on earth at a time when evils such as fanaticism and tyranny had made the lives of people miserable. Guru Gobind Singh established a way of life called as the Khalsa Panth. This sect focused on protecting the weak and downtrodden by fighting for justice against tyrannical forces.

GuruGobindexhibitionscalendar-april2-644x1024Guru Gobind Singh was a revolutionary who fought for equality and justice. His daring deeds many a times resulted in the deaths of people who were near and dear to him. However, he is believed to have fought relentlessly for the freedom of everyone, both men and women. His actions have earned him a place of great honor in the hearts of the Sikhs, who today venerate him as a religious hero.

Sikhs believe the path of revolution that was laid down by the Guru is the source of their inspiration, and the causes for which he fought are today the guiding lights for their path. The Sikhs stress on a way of life that is noble, chivalrous, and protective of the weak and poor and supportive of each other.

Paying a fitting tribute to a person of this magnitude and importance to the Sikh community was a daunting challenge, but one that Kanwar Singh had taken up very graciously. Not only will the exhibition showcase the life and lessons of Guru Gobind Singh, but also help educate non-Sikhs about their faith.

Various events related to the exhibition will be held on various days and at different places such as Brampton, Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton, Stoney Creek and Ottawa.
