At Harmandir Sahib, the Golden Temple, all are welcomed to the world's largest free kitchen where a a lakh (hundred thousand) people are fed with great love on an average every single day. This kitchen at the Harmandir Sahib, which is also addressed as the Darbar Sahib, or the Golden Temple, in Amritsar, India never stops, pauses or sleeps.
The Harmandir Sahib's four entrances welcome people of all castes, genders and religions to ponder on the oneness of Godhood and the brotherhood of all human beings. Here, 12,00 kg of wheat is kneaded into aata, and 2.5 lakh rotis are made every day along with dal. 40,000 thalis are washed and reused continuously.
The way of the Gurus of Sikhism embraces the tegh (sword) and degh (cauldron). Protect the weak, fight the tyrant with the tegh and feed all and eat with all without discrimination, the Gurus teach.
Thousands of volunteers work day and night to make this act of extraordinary love possible. May we all learn and profit from the lives and teachings of the ten Gurus and from the Guru Granth Sahib! Sat Sri Akal!
