"Pangat Sangat" is an expression in Sikhism meaning to sit in a row (pangat) and eat together in fellowship (sangat). Sacred food from the Guru's free kitchen, or langar, is an integral part of every Sikh worship service. It's not at all uncommon for sangat to partake of langar out of doors, like these Singhni who have met for an all night rainsabee kirtan program (and just happen to best friends on Facebook too).

We have trays similar to these we use for picnics. Food is a common denominator in friendships and fun gatherings.

My mother always says that you really love the ones you feed. You can tell there is a lot of love in your culture. Food really does a lot to unite people.
