Assamese and Sikhs follow the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev ji and Srimanta Shankar Dev , which are very similar in practice and ideology, thus making both Assamese and Sikhs brothers, stated Dr. SriSri Pitambar Dev Goswamim, the Satradhikar of SriSri Auniati Satra here yesterday, while also lauding the Khalsa Centre Northeast organization for its generous act.
Dr. SriSri Pitambar Dev Goswami jee made this statement while addressing the gathering at a solemn function organised to mark 25 continuous weeks of serving Guru Nanak’s Langar at Dr B Borooah Cancer Institute after being ceremoniously welcomed by Nagendra Singh priest of Biru Bari Gurduwara with a Siropa stated that the services rendered by team members of Khalsa Centre North East are commendable and giving food to the needy is the best service.
