In Sikhism the word Gurudwara refers to the Sikh place of worship. Sikh’s 6th Guru Hargobind introduced the word Gurudwara, meaning the gateway through which the Guru could be reached. Gurudwara is a compound word composed of Guru meaning enlightener or the guide from darkness into light. Dwara or duaar meaning doorway, gateway or portal.
The Langar or free kitchen was started by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, when he spent money meant for trade goods to feed hungry Sadhus ( saints ) declaring it a most profitable transaction.
It is designed to uphold the principle of equality between all people of the world regardless of religion, caste, colour, creed, age, gender or social status. In addition to the ideals of equality, the tradition of Langar ( free kitchen ) expresses the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness and oneness of all humankind.
Only vegetarian food is served so that no person may be offended and all people of all religions can sit together to share a common meal irrespective of any dietary restrictions.
Third Guru Amar Das developed the concept of pangat sangat, meaning every one regardless of rank, religion, caste, colour, creed, age and gender sits and eats together as equals in the congregation. So in Gurudwara’s the same concept is going on from ages.
