In this place of worship, the men sit on the floor along one side, with their uncut hair placed in turbans or their heads otherwise covered.
Sitting on the other side are the women, their heads also covered, their feet bare.
Someone waves a "chaur sahib" -- yellowish yak hair gathered into a handle -- over the "granth," a book containing the writings of 10 gurus.
Spiritual messages are sung to the music of a harmonium and drums, with slides interpreting the words in Gurmukhi, an Indian language, and English.
It might look and sound a bit different from the Sunday services in other houses of worship, but in the "gurudwara" of the Sikh Culture Society of Indiana, the overriding belief is common to many; the first line in the holy book compiled by the 10 gurus is translated, "There is but one God."
