Akhand Kirtani Jatha
The Akhand Kirtani Jatha is a Sikh organisation which actively promotes the Gursikh lifestyle, as taught by the Sikhs' Guru. It's primary activity is to recite the holy verses of our Guru (Gurbani) along with simple musical accompaniments - this practice is known as Kirtan and has been actively encouraged by Guru Sahib. The Practice of Kirtan allows for searchers of Truth to sit together (Sangat) and listen to the spiritually uplifting words of God.
The Akhand Kirtani Jatha is a world-wide organisation with centres in Punjab, UK, USA, Canada, India, Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and other nations.

To promote the glory of Sikh History, past and present. To spread the message of Guru Sahib Ji through Gurmat Camps, Gatka, literature, and other media. To aid the Sikh youth away from bad society and persuade them to adopt high morals, creating the next generation of Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Saint Soilders. To persuade society to abstain from the use of all types of intoxicants and non-vegetarian food. To encourage society to keep their bodily form intact especially Kesh (hair) as per God's Will. To adopt a simple lifestyle and a simple dress, being proud of the complete Khalsa Bana (uniform) especially Dastaar. To promote Guru Ji's Sant-Sipahi concept of Sewa, Simran and Sacrifice. The Jatha follows the concept of Miri-Piri and will always stand against injustice and oppression including anti-Panthic elements. Monetary aid for the welfare of families of Shaheeds and the poor and the needy.
- The Jatha is not a separate entity but an inseparable part of the Khalsa Panth under the sovereign umbrella of Siri Akal Takht Sahib Ji - the supreme authority of the Sikhs. It has no monastery (dera) of its own, nor is it a personality cult.
