Weekly Diwan
Sikh Mission of Virginia welcomes people of all faiths to come and join the weekly congregation of Sikhs to cherish the hymns and blessed message of Lord Almighty ("Waheguru or Wah Guru") via bani of the ten Sikh Gurus. The first Diwan was held on 12th April 2012, a day before the mega event Vaisakhi.  We had over 45 people in attendance. We had a wonderful selection of food ("Langar") prepared by the cmmunity ("Sangat"). Everyone had a great time. Much thanks to all the families that prepared the langar and supported the Diwan. Toom's Electronics for donating the prize. We are already looking forward to next year's event

Sehaj & Akhand Paath at Home
We welcome requests from the local community to perform Sehaj Paath at personal homes. Sehaj Paath involves the reading of the Guru Granth Sahib (all 1430 pages) in a slow and understandable manner so the members of the house or community understand the deeper meaning of the Guru's holy message, and thus apply in their every day lives via personal actions. Kids are highly encouraged to particiapte. Any member from the community is welcome to volunteer. feel free to contact our staff.

Gurbani Kirtan at Home
We welcome the opportunity to perform Gurbani Kirtan at your home, if such a need arises. We strongly encourage our Sikh Children to participate and perform at the kirtan events, and share their talent with the community. At times, only Naam Simran may be requested, where the congregation may meditate on the holy word "Wahe Guru Sat Naam".
