Akhand Path Dedications and Prayer List Requests
For many decades, the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das community has been honored and blessed to support three prayer lists for the Siri Singhasan e Khalsa Gurdwara: Akhand Path dedications, Ongoing Prayers, and Daily Ardas (Prayer).
The HGRD Gurdwara Committee humbly submits some revised procedures, following lengthy, comprehensive reviews and consultations.
To serve the Sadh Sangat through the special blessings of the ashram weekly Akhand Path and daily Sadhana Gurdwara through the power of prayer, with the correct protocol, grace and reverence taught to us by the Siri Singh Sahib Ji and the Bhai Sahiba Ji.
In keeping with the spiritual tradition of giving back to the Infinite to help open up avenues of blessings, please consider a donation – such as service, money, or food.
Cash or check donations can be placed in the marble box at the Gurdwara Alcove. Checks should be made out to “HGRD Gurdwara,” and can be marked “Akhand Path Dedication” on the memo line. For those who live out of town, please mail your donations to: Hacienda de Guru Ram Das, c/o Swaran Kaur Khalsa, 01-A Ram Das Guru Place, Espanola NM 87532. You may also donate electronically on the our website >
Here are the procedures for the three lists:
1. Akhand Path Dedications: Please submit by email: [email protected]
e.g. “Please add the following name to the Akhand Path dedication for the week of _____(include a brief blessing or words of prayer).”
After an Akhand Path, you are welcome to add the name to the Ongoing Prayers List (see below).
Suggestion about repeating an Akhand Path Dedication:
An Akhand Path dedication carries vastly powerful blessings of God, Guru and the Sadh Sangat. A single Akhand Path can change an entire destiny. Out of respect for such a divine gift, generally we suggest that an Akhand Path be a one-time or occasional event. However, we acknowledge that some situations are so concerning that it feels right to re-submit a dedication request one or sometimes even more times.
2. Ongoing Prayers: Please submit by email: [email protected]
e.g. “Please add the following name to the Ongoing Prayers list for the upcoming month.”
Names may be submitted at any time. The names on the Ongoing Prayer List will be cleared at the end of each month. Names may be resubmitted each month as many times as you wish.
3. Daily Ardas List:
This list is a one-day prayer for the daily Ardas. Any member of the Sangat may write in names for births and deaths, birthdays, anniversaries, blessings or healing.
