Beautiful and enthralling!
What a beautiful podcast! I learned so much! I am from a Gaudiya Vaisnava background and this podcast helped me so much to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the wonderful Sikh community. The histories are so engaging and spirituality fortifying. We are brought into the court of the holy Guru and the association of this wonderful Sikh congregation. So much is shared here. The struggles and the triumphs alike. Listening to this podcast I feel as if I am bathed in the holy amrit. The burden of corrupt varnashrama is lifted and the pure surrender to God exemplified. I am now feeling so much respect for the Sikhs, as they have fought valiantly against religious bigotry, sectarianism, the indignities of the caste system, the oppression of women, and the tyranny of exploitative authoritarians. I bow to the creators and supporters of this podcast. Hare Krishna Wahe Guru
Great Job ! Very informative and well curated but why aren't all the episodes available on spotify ?
Just Wow and please make sure all the episodes are available on spotify as well, it's so much easier to share it with others. Also, episodes aren't showing up in serial order on apple podcasts and on spotify. Please fix that.
I have been really enjoying this great podcast. The translations are just so much fun to listen to. Highly recommended!
