THE POWER BEHIND KINDNESS - BALPREET KAUR
The great Balpreet Kaur (known for her loving response to a picture of her that was posted online) recently gave a speech at TedxOhioStateUniversity about her actions that have been inspired by values that are not only fundamental to the Sikh faith, but also universal to humanity.
You can check out her wonderful response to the picture that was posted of her here. She speaks of her facial hair as embracing the natural state of her body and allows her to speak with her actions.
“By transcending societal views of beauty, I believe that I can focus more on my actions. My attitude and thoughts and actions have more value in them than my body because I recognize that this body is just going to become ash in the end, so why fuss about it?”
Balpreet is a great inspiration to all BROWNGIRLS to have the courage and passion to follow your heart for the greater good and to stand up for what you believe in a dignified, loving way.
