As many of you know our community is called the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das Ashram. Hacienda usually translates as 'estate,' but it literally translates as "doing" the place of doing of Guru Ram Das. Anyway we celebrate the birth of Guru Ram Das by gathering in the homes of memebers of the sangat for 11 days leading up to the birthday of Guru Ram Das. We sing the shabad 'Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur' for 31 minutes. It's a really beautiful time with the sangat and it's very cozy. On Guru Ram Das' birthday we chant 'Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur' for 2 and a half hours in the Amrit Vela.

During the chanting. I didn't feel like using flash.
After the chanting. We had a meal and Gurumeher Kaur Ji told the story of Rajni, who was married to the leper that was healed by the nectar tank that is the Amrit Sarover at Siri Harimandir Sahib.
