Dear Members of the Sikh Dharma / 3HO Community,
Sat Nam. This is a report from the Siri Singh Sahib Corp (SSSC) Board of Trustees covering the period from January through March 2015.
It is with full hearts that we open this report with a tribute to our dearest Hari Simran Singh.
Hari Simran Singh lived only for 25 years but in that short time, he led an indelible impression upon those who knew and loved him. And in the circumstances of his passing, his reach touched the whole world.
As the Assistant to the Executive Director of the Siri Singh Sahib Corporation, Hari Simran Singh was intimately involved in all aspects of the corporation. From managing the technology to assisting in writing policies for the organization, Hari Simran Singh was a vital asset to the work of the corporation.
His service to the SSSC only tells a fraction of the story of who he was as a person. Hari Simran Singh exemplified the best of what a Khalsa youth can offer. Schooled at Miri Piri Academy and steeped in the values of the Khalsa, Hari Simran Singh strove to embody the yogic and dharmic teachings he had learned.
Whether serving in his role as a Sikh Advocate trained by the Sikh Coalition or building the Raj Yoga Center in Sterling, Virginia he had a clear idea of who he was and where he was going. His love for community was evident and he worked to create a global consciousness of service. He was learning to be a leader and it was a pleasure to watch his evolution.
Although he will be missed, we are grateful that we were blessed to have known this remarkable young man. His spirit will certainly continue to live on and serve as an inspiration to all of us to strive to live to those same values.
