Dedicated to Serving All

06 Dedicated to Serving All

As I was walking around the holy tank of the Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar, this young Punjabi asked me to make a few shots of him and his friend in front of the Golden Temple.
He gave me his camera and then he took some of me with mine.
This picture was shot when he was watching the pictures of him on his camera.

It was a few weks ago when the heat was unbearable, nevertheless he was standing under the sun with grace and dignity and I remember thinking that all those people around me were standing like princes, kings and queens with their turbans and veils like crowns.
Actually the turban is how Sikhs, men and women alike, crown themselves as the Singhs and Kaurs who sit on the throne of commitment to their own higher consciousness.
The turban doesn’t represent anything except complete commitment, it is a signal to others that they live in the image of Infinity and are dedicated to serving all.

  1. Turban wearing by the Sikhs who do is an admirable practice. At the same time the turban seems timelessly fashionable. Your photo of the smiling man is a real Kodak moment. Great shot–like so many of yours.
