One Click Opens the Door

The New SikhNet Online Learning Center will debut this Viasakhi!

In 2019, our global community will commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. The genius of Guru Nanak's vision was his radical notion that honoring our common humanity is actually the highest spiritual path. Guru Nanak taught people to see the Light of the Creator dwelling equally in every heart, regardless of class, gender or religion.

This Divine inspiration compelled Guru Nanak to walk for 15 years, challenging the social norms of his time. He lived a life of extraordinary dedication and courage, and his Light remains with us through the songs contained in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib.

Today, through the blessing of modern technology, there is no need to walk for years to meet people and share these ideas. On the contrary, the journey of 1000 miles begins with a single click.

Therefore, it is my humble honor to announce the upcoming launch of SikhNet’s Learning Center. Throughout the rest of 2018, the SikhNet Learning Center will present a few different styles of learning journeys.

Launch Date: Vaisakhi 2018 (April 14th)

Learning Bytes
In May, we will begin releasing smaller “Learning Bytes.” These Learning Bytes will feature one or two videos, and one to three articles focused on a very specific topic. And the information can be digested in under an hour. These Learning Bytes are meant to be a healthy alternative to digital “surfing.” If you need to relax at the end of the day, come to the SikhNet Learning Center. Give yourself the gift of nourishing your mind and soul.

Webinars
Last but certainly not least, SikhNet will be experimenting with live webinars this year. These live webinars will feature guest panelists, speaking to critical issues within the Sikh community. After the live event is finished, the webinars will be saved to the SikhNet Learning Center, with supplementary material on the topic, for future viewing and learning.

Throughout the year, as we share these various approaches to online learning, we want to hear from YOU what you like. And what you would like to see more of. Your voice will help guide our development plans for the Learning Center in 2019.

Oh...and one last thing...all of these learning experiences will be provided to the worldwide community absolutely free. Through the incredible generosity of donors who were particularly interested in seeing the Learning Center come to life, these educational materials will be accessible to anyone, anywhere at no charge.

SikhNet would like to extend our deep gratitude to all of the people who donated towards our Learning Center. We would like to extend a very special thanks to the East-West Tea Company, the Chardi Kalaa Foundation, and the Jassal Family, through the Kirpal Singh MD Endowment Fund, for their generous grants in supporting the development of the SikhNet Learning Center.

Guru Nanak began a revolution of the heart over 500 years ago. It is our deepest honor and blessing to follow in his footsteps. We look forward to sharing the message of the Oneness of humanity to all those we cross paths with through the world wide web.
