ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰਤ ਹੋਇ ਨਿਹਕਾਮੀ ॥ ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਹੋਤ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ ॥ 
"One who performs selfless service, without thought of reward, 
 shall attain his Lord and Master.” 
 Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji - Ang 286

Nishkam TV is an online TV channel run by the Khalsa School Students. This channel was created in collaboration with NESSC and New England Khalsa School in 2019. Through the constant support and donations from the Sangat and community members, students could use state-of-the-art equipment. Nishkam TV’s primary goal has always been to provide content centered around the concept and spirit of Nishkaamta or Selfless service. They create media content through a Sikhi lens regarding building dialogue, increasing understanding, and promoting interactions between different faiths and cultures to ultimately bring us closer as one humanity and enhance our lives. Hence, the above-mentioned lines - Selfless and true Service facilitate the attainment of God, are of great significance to the mission of Nishkam TV.

With the pandemic, the Sangat felt more and more detached as safety restrictions forbade them from coming to the Gurdwara. Nishkam TV Production Team has put the out content that has helped the Sangat feel connected again by giving them an avenue to experience and enjoy the daily live streams of different hymns and prayers (which the Sangat would usually experience in person), to podcasts on how to follow a healthy diet. Providing this content has been hard, and the team has had to adapt. Read More...
