Well, since I don't know what Hazoor Sahib is, I'm not sure I can say I'd be there. heh.

lol, Yeah I'm going to India in a couple days.
Hazoor Sahib is a historic Gurdwara (Sikh place of worship) in the South of India where the 10th Guru (Guru Gobind Singh) bestowed Guru-ship upon our scriptures. That was 300 years ago this year, so there will be a big celebration (they're expecting 4 million).
Guru - means the enlightener (Gu = dark, Ru = light, that which brings light to darkness). For Sikhs we had 10 Gurus in human form and then the "word" became our Guru (embodied in our scriptures). The bible also talks about the word in John 1:1 where it says: In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God (I'm writing from memory, but I'm pretty sure that's what it says).
Sikhs will never bow to another human Guru, but will revere our scriptures as Guru, which contain the writings of 6 of the Sikh Gurus and saints of other religions as well. That happened 300 years ago this month.
I hope all is well. I'm going to try and blog when I'm there, so stay tuned I guess :-)
