Today is the official date of Sikh Environment Day, a commemoration of our connection to the natural world on the anniversary celebrating when Guru Har Rai became the seventh Guru of the Sikhs in 1644.

In that spirit, happy Gurpurab and happy Sikh Environment Day! I have been fortunate to join members of my local community in celebrating the event by planting trees across our community. EcoSikh, the organizers of this event in its third year, have announced that over 1,500 organizations across the world are partaking in commemorations of the day.
