    Guru Purab~~~

    GURU PARAB IS ON 24th OF NOVEMBER~~~

    The birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev - the first or the founder guru of the Sikhs, is celebrated with great fervour on the full moon day of Kartika. Guru Parab, also known as Jyototsava is one of the most sacred festivals of the Sikhs.

    At Nankana Sahib (the birth place of Guru Nanak now in Lahore), there is a beautiful Gurudwara, and a holy tank or sarovar. On Guru Parab, a grand fair and festival is held here, and Sikhs in thousand congregate here from India and abroad.
     
     
    Guru Granth Sahib, the Holy Scripture, is continuously read and recited in the Gurudwaras ('Akhand path') all over the country, lamps are lighted, processions are taken out, free langars (meals) are arranged and prasad (holy food) is distributed. Pandals are set up in various places and 'prasad' is distributed. Guru Purab celebrations at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab is impressive.

    Gurupurab~~~
    Also known as ' Guru Nanak Jayanti ', it is the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak who founded the Sikh faith. For two days and nights preceding the festival, the 'Granth Sahib' (Holy Book) is read and on the day of the festival, taken out in a grand procession. Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the Sikh faith, was born in the month of Kartik (October / November) and his birthday is known as Guru Nanak Jayanti. He was born in 1469 A.D. at Tolevandi some 30 miles from Lahore. The anniversaries of Sikh Guru's are known as Gurpurabs and are celebrated with devotion and dedication.

     Teachings Of Guru Nanak He was not only the founder of the Sikh religion, he was a great poet, philosopher, humanist and a powerful social reformer, a teacher of mankind. Nanak said that one need not become a sanyasi sacrificing one's family, to please God. Those who practice devotion, whose mind is pure and who have sympathy, patience and honesty, are in no way inferior to a sanyasi. He considered that all human beings were highborn; no one was low.
     
    He stressed, "Do not ask someone's caste; those whose devotion is accepted by God are good people. God appreciates those who have conquered the 'I' and 'greed'. Nanak washes the feet of those who concentrate their minds on God, the source of truth".

    Celebrations~~~
    The akhand path or the continuous reading of Granth Saheb, the sacred book of the Sikhs, begins three days before Guru Nanak Jayanti. The sacred scripture is read non-stop from beginning to end. The Akhand Path culminates on the day of the Guru Purab and the holy book is then taken out in a procession. It is beautifully decorated with flowers and carried on a float. Children participate in the procession and march to the tune of local band playing religious hymns. Five armed guards who are called the panj pyare lead the procession. At the head of the procession is the Nishan Saheb or the Sikh flag.

    Prabhat Pheri~~~
    A few days before Guru Purab, people take out Prabhat Pheris or the early morning processions from the Gurdwaras. They go around their locality singing shabd or the religious hymns.

    Langar~~~
    Later in the day, special kirtans are arranged in the Gurdwaras. The devotees attend langar or the common meals where everyone eats the same food irrespective of caste, class, or creed. Devotees offer their services for cooking food, cleaning the Gurdwara or carrying out other chores. This is called the Kar Seva.

    Illumination~~~
    In the evening, the Gurdwaras are illuminated and people visit them in large numbers. People also illuminate their homes with candles and earthen lamps.

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    ॐ शन्तिः शन्तिः शन्तिः"

    Gurupurab~~~

    On the day of Gurupurab, the Sikhs conclude the reading of Guru Granth Sahib. Food is served in the Gurudwaras and special programmes are arranged. Excerpts from the Granth Sahib are sung in the Gurudwaras. Three weeks before the festival, people start going for processions (prabhat pheris) accompanied by hymns in honor of the Guru. To add to the fervor of the festival, the houses and Gurudwaras are brightly lit in the evening. That’s why this festival is also called as Prakash Utsav, the festival of lights…

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    The Three Pillars~~~

    It was here that Guru Nanak founded & formalised the three pillars of Sikhism~~~

    1. Naam.. Guru ji led the Sikhs directly to practise Simran and Naam Japna – meditation on God through reciting, chanting, singing and constant remembrance followed by deep study & comprehension of God’s Name and virtues. In real life to practice and tread on the path of Dharam (righteousness) - The inner thought of the Sikh thus stays constantly immersed in praises and appreciation of the Creator and the ONE ETERNAL GOD Waheguru.

    2. Kirat Karni.. He expected the Sikhs to live as honourable householders and practise Kirat Karni – To honestly earn by ones physical and mental effort while accepting both pains & pleasures as GOD's gifts and blessings. One is to stay truthful at all times and, fear none but the Eternal Super Soul. Live a life founded on decency immersed in Dharam - life controlled by spiritual, moral & social values.

    3. Vand Chakna.. The Sikhs were asked to share their wealth within the community by practising Vand Chakna – “Share and Consume together”. The community or Sadh Sangat is an important part of Sikhism. One must be part of a community that is living the flawless objective values set out by the Sikh Gurus and every Sikh has to contribute in whatever way possible to the common community pool. This spirit of Sharing and Giving is an important message from Guru Nanak.

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    Mere Sai ki Deepali

    श्री साईनाथ । आपके ऋण हम किस प्रकार चुका सकेंगें । आपके श्री चरणों में हमारा बार-बार प्रणाम है । हम दीनों पर आप सदैव कृपा करते रहियेगा, क्योंकि हमारे मन में सोते-जागते हर समय न जाने क्या-क्या संकल्प-विकल्प उठा करते है । आपके भजन में ही हमारा मन मग्न हो जाये, ऐसा आर्शीवाद दीजिये ।

    Baba mujh Dasi ko apne Charankamalon ki Sheetal Chaaya me Sthan de do.
