This ornament is sewn to the center of a canopy suspended above Guru Granth Sahib and is inside the home of Sikh who has set aside a room for daily worship and reading of the Sikh scripture.

Yes, it is pretty, bright, and colorful, and so is the room above where the service is going on.

Obviously this ornament has a deeper meaning than just a pretty decoration.

I like the ornament, but I especially like the idea of having an entire room set aside for contemplation and worship, something we so often miss out on in our overly-hurried lives these days.

What an interesting photo. I like how it is such a close up of the ornament. But I must agree that it’s more important to know of the room set aside for daily worship and reflection. I think people of many different religions would appreciate that in their homes. Thanks!

I agree that a reflection room is a great idea.

Hmm… I’ve got a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom and a kitchen. Guess the living room will have to go!

What does the rest of this room look like, Sukhmandir?

That is the most unusual picture frame I’ve ever seen. It certainly does create a place of honor for the picture.

Interesting photo display in honor of the founder of your religion. I once considered clearing out a closet to use as a meditation/prayer/reflection room. There was room for a chair and a wee table, but I am a bit claustrophobic and didn’t do it. I knew a family that had a prayer closet and the mom used it daily for a bit of solitude. It was one place she could go and the children were not allowed to enter or knock on the door. Her children were also allowed to use it once each day if they chose.

(14) Sukhmandir Kaur says:

Kallie – The entire Master Bedroom suite on the secon floor has been set aie for a worship place I have more pictures. I’ll let you now when they are up.

I took this one. I saw that and thought this would make a great WW :) I carry a couple cameras around with me now, and still manage to miss really great photo oportunnties but I’m learning :)

You’re doing a great job! I love coming to see what you’ve got for WW each week. I’m really learning a lot from your site.

Like others have said, the idea of a room set aside for reflection and meditation is very appealing – seems like it would offer a great respite from stress!

Very pretty picture! And an interesting blog! Thanks for sharing! :)

(20) Lahle Wolfe says:

I felt a sense of “happy” and “peace.” Kind of reminded me of Christmas and remembrance. Although I am sure intended as an ornament representing more specific spiritual things, it somehow seems more universal in its appeal.
