In a remarkable interfaith gesture, Reno Sikh Temple invited the prominent Hindu chaplain Rajan Zed to read the historic prayer during its Sunday service, which he recited in the United States Senate in July last.

Amolak Singh Powar, President of Reno Sikh Temple, in his welcoming address, listed various projects undertaken by Zed to bring communities together through interfaith dialogue. He said that a broader, deeper, more inclusive understanding of religion was necessary. Religion was the most powerful force in human society, so we all must take religion seriously, Powar added.
