The Light of Guru Nanak for the World
A Commemorative Japji Sahib Volume with 19 Language Translations
I am honored to be a part of creating a wonderful gift and piece of art for the Sikh community. The Japji Sahib book features 19 different translations of one of Guru Nanak’s most beautiful writings along with my original watercolor illustrations. The book is part of an offering and will feature a custom jeweled cover bound in silver. Other versions of the book (without the silver and gemstones) are available for a short time on a pre-order basis. You can donate here and order the book.
2019 marks the 550th Birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and this momentous occasion will be commemorated around the world. As part of our celebration, 3HO and Sikh Dharma are joining together to take a Yatra with about 100 sangat members to India.
Whenever the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan attended these historic events, he would bring a gift that reflected the majesty and dignity of the Khalsa in the West. To continue that tradition, we are collecting the translation of Japji Sahib from our communities around the globe, in 19 different languages. Each translation of Japji Sahib will be included in a beautiful book bound with a spectacular cover of silver filigree and precious gem stones and each of the 400 pages will be artistically designed and bordered.
Such a volume will represent how the words and Light of Guru Nanak Dev ji have spread throughout the world through the inspiration of Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan and the devotion of his students.
On the occasion of Guru Nanak Dev ji’s birthday, this book titled “Japji Sahib – the Light of Guru Nanak for the World,” will be given to the Sikh Museum at the Golden Temple in the name of the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan and on behalf of the 3HO/Sikh Dharma communities around the world. There it will remain for all time in testimony to our love for the path of Nanak.
In addition to the one-of-a-kind embellished and gilded volume, we are printing limited hard-cover editions as appreciation gifts for those who contribute $550 or more towards this project. These books will have a white faux-leather cover with gold embossed lettering and will contain all 400 inner pages of the volume.
We extend a special invitation to everyone to be a part of this historic project. All are welcome to make a donation of any size to help fund the creation of this beautiful piece of legacy art.
