There are two points to this Editorial. One is to address some issues and caveats that define the mission statement of a vision. The second part is on the essence of what the Sri Guru Granth Sahib 2019 Conference was about. This is the eighth year of these yearly conclaves, brain child of the Chardi Kalaa Foundation housed in San Jose’s majestic gurdwara. Eight years ago, the enterprise had connections with the Sikh Review but over the past six years it has cemented intimate relationship with the Nishaan; both publications are India–based classics in keeping their finger on the pulse of the Sikh community.
