A Chat with a Sikh


What does it mean to be a good person according to Sikhism? 

We ask Sikh Human Rights Activist, Simran Singh, to share his opinions on being good according to the Sikh way of life. 

In keeping with his Sikh faith, Simran engages in human rights broadly and has a long history of working within the corporate world too. He is a lifelong Senior Fellow at the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute and a member of the Rumi Forum's Advisory Council in Washington, DC, and a Fellow at the Royal Society of Arts in London.

Simran was honored to be the first ethnic European in history to sing at the Golden Temple, the holiest shrine of the Sikhs, and in 2021 opened the first all-encompassing interfaith events in Guatemala and Costa Rica's history.

Simran is kind, compassionate and full of incredible insight. His openness in this interview makes for a beautiful conversation covering some fundamentals about the Sikh faith alongside the importance of self-love and forgiveness in our personal journeys.
