Dr. Tarlochan Turna spoke to the Club on May 8 about his native India and the Sikh Religion. Sikhism is the fifth most popular religion in the world and yet is little known in the U.S. BBC reports that Sikhism was founded in the Punjab by Guru Nanak in the 15th Century CE and is a monotheistic religion. Sikhs think religion should be practised by living in the world and coping with life's everyday problems. Dr. Turna has been a long time family physician in Cannon Falls.
