An inherent aspect of Guru Ravi-das’s teachings lead to Simran. The act of realization and remembrance which connects one’s Mind and Body to the higher level of spirituality. Thus, creating the trinity of life, Mind, Body and Soul, as one. The triangle becomes the symbol of our higher connection, and also the wholesome process of Simran.

The life and times of Sant Guru Ravidass was defined by a Singular unflinching path of Bhakti. This reflected in the equitable socio-cultural behaviour which he so fearlessly propagated. Primary among his teachings is that God is omnipresent and all-pervading, and that every human is a particle of God. Thus he preached the tool of Simran by the practice of which, one can reach the higher states of consciousness. Once the community walks The Path, the destination automatically becomes “Begumpura”. Simran leads to the balance between the Body, Mind and the Spirit. An equitable form for this is represented in the geometry of the equilateral triangle which became the fabric upon which all built systems evolved. The other significant factor was the path which we named “An-ant Path”. We developed the design on the importance of a straight path which can be walked upon the top of the sin-gular building, which houses under it the core functions of the Simran hall, the Museum, the Auditorium and the 5D theatre. This building is interpreted as the Minar-e-Begumpura signifying the equality in society that Gurudev strived for.
