Naam Karan (Sikhism)

Project Overview

This project teaches children about the Naam Karan, a Sikh baby naming ceremony. Many Sikh parents bring their newborns to the Gurdwara (the Sikh temple) as soon as they are able to visit. The Granthi (reader of the scriptures) opens the holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib, at random, and the first letter of the first word on the left-hand page will be the first letter of the baby’s name.
