Chilliwack’s Hardev Singh Johal waves a ceremonial whisk called a chaur, showing utmost respect, above the Guru Granth Sahib holy book Sunday during the Vaisakhi celebrations held during the weekend at the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple on Mackenzie Avenue.

Saturday, the temple celebrated its flag-raising ceremony. During the three days of celebration congregation members take turns reading the Sikh holy book so there is a continuous reading of the teachings.
