know that I'm a Sikh when I was just

five days old my parents brought me to

the Ghidorah the temple and I was named

in a special ceremony called nam current

which means name ik obviously I can't

remember it so I've come to the guru to

find out exactly what happens

babies are brought here because it's the

center of the Sikh community and because

this is where the Guru Granth Sahib our

holy book is kept it plays a very

important power in the naming ceremony

my friend housed in the same explains

whenever you enter the divine horse

record or the prayer hall if you want to

say it in English you always see a

throne like contraption at the end of it

it is a throne and on that throne sits

the holy book when it's not in use when

it's not being read it is covered by by

wonderful capra by a wonderful cloth we

sit on the floor the Guru sits a bit

higher can you tell me a bit about the

history and the importance of Guru

Granth Sahib see the Guru Granth is the

most important item in Sec teachings the

Guru the teacher grant book is our bulb

our Bishop our even our King so whether

you are dealing with a name giving Sarah

me as we're discussing today or it is

about death or marriage or what-have-you

the central point in the ceremony is

always going to be the Guru Granth the

grantee the man who looks after the

grant the book in other words he puts

the Guru Granth SAP on its side and

opens it at random

and then the him that you find on the

top left-hand side of the page is the

him that leads that that ceremony or

that day

this is purple sing girl meth core and

the baby daughter believe God can Eve

had an arm Koran hair just a few weeks

ago there is no set time for the naming

ceremony to take place but it usually

happens as soon as possible after the

birth so what did he do on the day of

your daughter's naming ceremony in a

sikh household when a baby is born and

the both the mother and the child they

are healthy enough they're good enough

to go to the local good water we just go

there and to have the naming ceremony

done the whole family went to the

Gurdwara to introduce the new baby to

the community and to present her to the

Guru Granth side we all bow to the book

to show our respect and it's never too

early to learn

we offered Ramallah a piece of cloth to

Guru Granth Sahib a Sikh holy scriptures

the family usually gives a gift it might

be food for everyone at the gourd era to

share or a donation of money bread' pals

family gave Ramallah that's a lot which

is used to wrap up the Guru Granth Sahib

to protect it when it isn't being read

the grantee opens the Guru Granth I've

at random and the first letter of the

first word on the page will be the first

letter of the baby's name we were

blessed with at this time

good Buddha care pottery so the latter

was G and we at the end we decided again

Eve which means a priceless worth first

letters good Eve and the full name is

getting to the core Sikhs are also given

the names Singh and core seekers of

believes in equality our temple who

gives a voice may sing which means lime

and the girls named core which means

princess that will be very important

because then the people will not get

discriminated because their background

or their class status by the surname at

the end of the ceremony we had we were

blessed with the proper shot which is in

holy food

like it's more pudding delicious the

sweet taste is a reminder of God's

blessings everyone is given a piece of

carapace shot from the same Bowl

to show that we are all equal and all

part of the same community which we call

the Sangha and that's the Nam Quran seek

names are special because they're chosen

with the help of the Guru Granth side

and our names show that we are all part

of the seed community just like little

good Eve caught
