Guru Ram Das Ashram in Los Angeles is the spiritual home for countless individuals...

Guru Ram Das Ashram was the home of Siri Singh Sahib Ji as well as the center for the teachings of Sikh Dharma and the Khalsa in the West, which inspired so many ‘Westerners’ and now persons from all quarters of the planet to learn and live the Guru’s teachings. The first formal Kirtan program and Gurdwara service was held on November 26, 1972. Since then, each and every week an Akhand Path (continuous reading of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) has been conducted by the Sadh Sangat (community members).

Guru Ram Das Ashram became the Sikh Dharma International Headquarters. Sikh Dharma International now serves over 40 nations in the world through the communities in those countries that have inspired them to lead their lives as Khalsa. From the 1970s through today, many of the most renowned Ragi Jethas from India and Southern California have played Kirtan there, adding their special sounds to the uplifting vibration now ever-present and to the palpable sense of peace and sacredness in and around Guru Ram Das Ashram.
