Jasdeep Hari Bhajan Singh Khalsa
I am the youngest of four siblings, and a first generation British Sikh born in the United Kingdom, my parents were from India. Going into a public school there were many challenges to my identity, not from the outside from other people, but instead from inside myself. Also, looking back on my life, God and Guru has guided me through every situation of life even though I was unaware of it at the time. I have always had this subtle connection to the spiritual masters and it’s through these inner challenges to discover myself and this connection to God and Guru that I’ve written most of my poetry.
The first poem I wrote when I was just 13 years of age, I am now 21 years of age and still writing. It has been a very interesting spiritual path for me so far and most of my spiritual progression has come through the regular practice of Kundalini Yoga, reading the five Sikh daily meditations called the Nitnem, regularly sitting in meditation and prayer, having conversations with God, meeting spiritual masters, listening to the sound of the Gong and going on a personal development course from Landmark Education.
Onkardeep Singh Khalsa
Hi, I’m Onkardeep, I’ve been creating art and poems since I was a child. In the big scheme of things my life is a very simple one and one which I have very much enjoyed experiencing. I’m extremely grateful for all the opportunities I have been given, especially those which have allowed me to serve others; this book being one of them.
Every year I look back at myself and I’m astounded at what I have achieved and how far I have progressed. This progression has been down to many factors but in particular it has been my gradual increase in openness to see things from different points of view. To understand, stand-under. Understanding life all depends on how you look at it, and I hope that I can continue to broaden my viewpoints whilst maintaining a focus on my chosen path; the Sikh way of life. ‘Life is the journey, no matter the end, The end is guaranteed, my divine friend’ – Page: 20 – Daily Meditation
