An Exemplar of Faith
Although the Ten Gurus are regarded by Sikhs as the template for all things spiritual, some Sikhs act as role models to others in specific ways. The Rahit Maryada or code of conduct states that Sikhs are encouraged to work together in order to effect the maximum social benefit through least effort and to meet together to inspire each other. An example of someone who follows this guidance would be Ravinder Singh of Khalsa Aid. He set the UK based organisation up in 1999 to offer help in emergency relief in the Balkans. Since then the group has provided support around the world. More details can be found at khalsaaid.org.
