Concepts of Equality

Using Karah Prashad to explore equality. Karah Prashad is given out at Sikh temples and is made of equal parts water, butter, sugar and flour.

Jason Taylor, the filmmaker behind the 'Concepts of Equality' video beautiful explains "By using equal amounts of each ingredient, then blessing it and sharing it equally, this simple offering represented to people the message of equality of both men and women, a message the world seems to have forgotten, not just in the east but in the west too. The three ingredients were at one time sourced from local families who farmed the Gurdwara’s surrounding lands. They would donate them as part of their Dasvand, which literally means, one tenth. Whether financial, agricultural or as service to others, all Sikhs believe that one tenth of everything we have to give should be shared with those less fortunate than us."
