Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) has released its seventh report in the State of the Panth series titled Miri-Piri, exploring Miri-Piri doctrine as it is found in primary and secondary sources, and how Miri-Piri influences the political and spiritual behavior of Sikhs worldwide. The report traces and analyzes Miri-Piri doctrine from its beginnings with Guru Nanak Sahib through its development, institutionalization, and application through time and context over 534 years. How have Sikhs historically applied Miri-Piri doctrine to their individual contexts through time? What are the present-day tensions in application of Miri-Piri doctrine under competing citizenships across India and the diaspora? Can Sikh politicians serve the State and the Panth? What role should institutions play in building a foundational understanding of the Miri-Piri doctrine?
Join us in conversation with Harinder Singh and Jasleen Kaur as we try to understand Miri-Piri from a Gurmat (Guru’s Way) perspective, as inferred from Bani (wisdom), Tavarikh (history), and Rahit (lifestyle).
