Featured Photo: Year Round Decorations in Baba Ji's Room

"Baba ji" is a term of endearment used by Sikhs for our guide to enlightenment, and ever lasting guru, the holy scripture Guru Granth Sahib.
Baba ji is kept in private homes which house Guru Granth Sahib within a special room set aside for meditation and worship.

Decorations adorn Baba ji's room all year round. These were photographed on a sweltering August evening.

Now that’s a room! I love the bold colors and the decorations. I especially like the plants. Are they real plants?

The peacock feather are real, I don’t recall, whether or not the plants were, I took this picture in August at a friends rain sabaee (all night kirtan) in honor of the martyrdom of Guru Arjun Singh. It was quite hot weather at that time, could be they picked leaves from plants outside.

How colorful! Our Christmas tree has been up for 4 years now and is an all season – holidays tree. Hubby & I could not bear to take it down after the kids where home together last time, so we added things for each holiday & event. DH spent a good part of the month replacing bulbs/lights this year, as we frequently use it as a night light. Prayers & blessing my friend!

Looks nearly christmassy:) ! In the gorgeous indian shop we have here there are so beautiful ornaments to put on a Christmas tree, although they are probably meant for another purpose !

Decorations are all about making the place feel special. It’s nice to do that on a regular basis and not just for a particular holiday or celebration. Thanks for sharing these images and traditions with us.

How very festive looking. We often see tinsel used here for Sukkot decorations (the Feast of Tabernacles, in early fall).

Faythe,
I’m guessing you must have an artificial tree, because A live tree would have grown through the roof by now and cut tree would be a mere skeleton without needles. The grandkids must love visiting Grammy’s house where it is Christmas year round :)
