Mata Tripta Darbar
What is Mata Tripta Darbar?
In conjunction with NWC process of opening the centre in 2006, Sikh Nari Manch set-up a prayer room for the Sikh congregation to host all spiritual prayer’s and singing – which are very blessed to have the presence of Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (The eternal Guru of the Sikhs). They named this room, ‘Mata Tripta Darbar’.
Mata Tripta Darbar is open to ALL regardless of religion or beliefs. Mata Tripta Darbar has many programmes and activities open outside NWC opening hours.
The Inspiration Behind Mata Tripta Darbar
Mata Tripta derives from Guru Nanak Dev Ji – the first Guru of the Sikhs. Mata Tripta was Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Mother. As SNM is a Sikh Women’s Organisation it seemed prominent to name a spiritual place of worship after the first woman in connection with the First Guru of the Sikhs.
Sikh Nari Manch started off as a choir, in singing hymns from the Sikh sacred scriptures, and reciting prayers with the congregation. This was the main foundation of the charity, and this led to a special prayer room that was built to allow congregation from all communities to find a space for: reflection, to pray and to spiritually blossom.
