‘Why am I here?’ This book seeks to answer this and life’s other big questions about our true identity, what drives us and what our purpose is. By delving into the Words of the True Guru, called “Gurbani” in the Sikh faith, you will gain a different perspective on life and your whole approach towards it. The Guru’s universal message centres around elevating above two significant limitations; our attachment to what we have and our unfulfilled desires for the things we don’t have. Our perceived identities and our values drive these attachments and desires. We can learn to overcome these barriers by discovering a new life that is healthy, rewarding and without limits. A selfless and grateful life in which serving the Oneness of creation while remaining connected to the Creator becomes our day-to-day practice.
"My Little Book of Spiritual Wisdom" is a valuable and timely resource for spiritual seekers, as it presents fundamental concepts of the Sikh faith in an accessible, thought-provoking, and question-and-answer format. Each chapter covers a deep and universal concern, such as the nature of the divine, the role of the self, and the purpose of life, providing spiritual truths drawn from the rich heritage of the Sikh tradition. With over 60 concepts covered, accompanied by quotations from Gurus and Bhagats (Saints), the book offers a diverse range of perspectives on each topic. Designed for independent reading, it is a valuable companion for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of the spiritual journey and navigate its complex terrain.
The Sikhi Marriage Handbook is written to help those interested in a Sikh marriage to understand the unique aspects of the Anand Karaj – the ceremony of spiritual bliss. In the Sikh faith, marriage is more than a partnership between two individuals. It is the pathway to God, and the Anand Karaj reveals how the merger with God occurs in four unique stages, called the Laavan.
You will learn about the meaning of the Anand Karaj, how the ceremony is carried out and what to expect. The thought of getting married can be quite daunting, so the book helps you gain self knowledge and discover the skills that are vital for a healthy relationship but may never have been taught in childhood. It then moves on to finding the right partner and laying a healthy foundation in the first year, which is probably the most challenging. Finally, you will get an understanding of what is not acceptable in a marriage and what you can do if things start to go wrong. This is a must-read guide for getting married or for anyone wanting to improve their relationship through better communication, personal growth and Sikhi virtues.

Share Charity is delighted to present ‘Is that Paras’ Turban?’, our new children’s book!
It is the first Sikh-themed multi-sensory book aimed at educating about the significance of the turban.
It gives young children early exposure to the turban and introduces them to key associated words. It also looks to embrace those children who fall in the neurodiversity category through its interactive and sensory theme. Diversity and inclusion are vitally important and the book aims to create awareness amongst children of this important article of faith which is prevalent across much of UK society.
This is the first ever Sikh sensory book to be created for little hands to explore different textures and experience the book. The importance of the sensory element is to ensure all children of different learning styles can access the learning.
The book has also been endorsed by SNN (Sikh Neurodiversity Network) who have been very supportive throughout its production.
The book contains two main characters Paras and Pete, who go on an adventure to find Paras’ turban. They will observe different types of head wear but in the end recognise the huge significance of the turban, the fact that it is a crown which has been gifted by the founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak Dev Jee.
The book contains a QR code which will connect the reader to many free resources including downloadable colouring sheets, Paras book makers, keywords, questions, signposting to links on how to tie a turban and many more…
Our dream would be for the book to reach every nursery/EYFS institution in the UK, to ensure the important message about the turban is conveyed and we can collectively build tolerance, mutual respect and eradicate the early roots of discrimination.
The aim of this booklet is to give children useful tips on managing difficult emotions and provide strategies on how to remember Vaheguru in good and bad times. Enjoy completing the activities, reading affirmations and learning Shabads! Learn how to build a Chardi Kala mindset. Remember, you are loved, cared for and protected by Vaheguru! Let’s take small steps to feel Vaheguru around us all the time. The booklet comes with a set of crayons.
A box of 36 double sided cards for children aged 3 – 12 that help create and maintain positive thought patterns in our children while reinforcing Sikhi values. Creating positive thought patterns from an early age is imperative in order to maintain a Chardi Kala mindset.
