A Glance at Sant Anoop Singh Ji's may Noble Projects for Serving Humanity
Sant ji has embraced the "paavan" message of Gurbani, "vich duniya sev kamaeeaai ta dargeh baisun paaeeaai", and has dedicated his life in helping the needy and less fortunate throughout the world. Sant Anoop Singh Ji, Una Sahib Wale, who is filled with generosity, kindness and love is spreading the fragrance of Gurbani throughout the world through Simran and Kirtan.
A lot of people in the world know Sant Ji as a renowned kirtaniya in Sikh jagat, but when we get closer to Sant Ji we discover new things about him,like his humidity, his simpleness and helpfulness. Sant ji truly lives by these lines of Gurbani "aap japo avra naam japavo", and one thing that is apparent and flashes repeatedly is Sant ji's total dedication and commitment to Sewa and Simran. In other words, we can sum up Sant ji in two words: Sewa and Simran. In this journey of Sewa and Simran mission, Sant ji has taken some great leaps and has made some great strides. One of these great steps taken resulted in making of helping, educational and spiritual center, which is an off shoo, of Sewa Panthi Sampardaye, and was rightfully named in the loving memory of the founder and initiator of red cross, a portrait of Sewa & Simaran , and a great personality in Sikh History- Bhai Kanhalya Ji. The Center is thus Known as Bhai Kanhaiya Ji Sewa Simran Kendar and Gurmat Sangeet Academy. It is Situated in Phagwara- Jalandhar G. T. Road On a 3 Acre Property and Was Formed in February 2003. Phagwara Center is The Outer Manifestation of Sant Ji's Inner Essence.
