VAISAKHI PARADE 2019

Vaisakhi Parade Returns to Surrey this Saturday!

The annual Vaisakhi Parade, taking place on April 20, 2019 in Surrey, British Columbia, will once again host a joyous and a lively and celebratory event that marks the birth of the Sikh faith, pays tribute to the harvest and commemorates one of the most important days in the Sikh calendar, the creation of the Khalsa. The Khalsa was founded to fight adversity over 300 years ago and has since continued to be at the heart of Sikhism.

Vaisakhi is celebrated worldwide to recognize the involvement and importance of this heroic group of people. This year’s celebration is deemed as one of the largest of its kind in the world and is expected to draw a record-breaking crowd of more than 500,000 people. The community event is free and invites everyone to enjoy one of the most important elements of the annual festival, the delicious foods of India. In celebration of the Parade, hundreds of local businesses and individual families will offer free food to the public.

For more than 20 years, the parade has been held in Surrey and has brought together crowds that have reached an estimated count of 500,000 in the largest Khalsa Day Parade held outside of India. It is an occasion of performance, live music, decorated floats and food and drink complimentary of local residents and businesses. The annual Vaisakhi Parade invites people of all cultures and religions to experience the joyous day and savor the unique food and entertainment.

Parade Route: The Khalsa Day Parade is scheduled to begin at approximately 9:00 am at the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar, located at 12885-85 Avenue. The Parade will conclude there at approximately 5:00pm (see map for route).

abacus learning - aloha mind math

What is Abacus Learning?

The abacus is a tool invented by the Mesopotamians, and improved as a mathematical tool by the Greek scholar Tetramachus. It was used in China for more than 900 years as a mathematical instrument.

Abacus is an incredible tool not only for math calculation but the process of calculation also improves the overall performance of the human mind. ALOHA program use the abacus for teaching the basics of mental arithmetic and improving both right and left brain development which is one of the keys to the ALOHA methodology.

Benefits of Abacus Learning

  • Solving Math operations with Accuracy and speed
  • Ability to concentrate and pay attention
  • Creativity and visualization capacity
  • Listening and observational skills
  • Photographic memory and spatial orientation
  • Self-confidence
  • Analytical skills

ALOHA Mental Arithmetic utilizes the abacus as a fundamental learning element, for their universality and easy handling for children of all ages. Children start to do math operations with help of the abacus and gradually visualize the abacus while doing math operations mentally. With practice and achieving different levels in the program, kids are able to perform math operations (additions, subtraction, divisions, multiplications, square roots, powers, decimal operations, percentages and combined operations) with outstanding speed and with great accuracy, without a calculator or pencil and paper. With this process, the right hemisphere of the brain is stimulated (memory, imagination, concentration, abstraction, etc.), which contributes to the development of the brain.

ALOHA Mind Math stimulates analytical and creative abilities of children, contributing positively to the development of the two cerebral hemispheres (left and right) allowing children to improve their capacity for learning, concentration and observation.
