On this occasion, there will be big historical samagams and in order to make these samagams memorable gursangats under the leadership of Sant Balbir Singh, Seechewal are engaged in the arrangements since last year. Ek Onkar Charitable trust is making full efforts to articulate the philosophy of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and to follow his teachings. Guru Nanak dev Ji had given the message 'Pawan Guru, Pani Pita, Mata Dharat Mahat' on the land of Sultanpur Lodhi. here itself the voice “Welfare to All” had echoed. Punjab is called the land of Guru's and Peers, the same motherland, the man's greed has polluted it that much that not only the man but the whole universe is suffering due it. Sant Seechewal has been making humble requests to the gursangats to participate in the samagams in great numbers and with great enthusiasm and whoever wants to do any type of kar sewa can register himself at the website opened for this purpose.
