Guru Nanak Jayanti 2017: Significance of the sacred day of Gurpurab
The pilgrims will mark Guru Nanak's 548th birth anniversary on Saturday (November 4) at Nankana Sahib, his birthplace, in Pakistan's Punjab province. This is one of the most sacred festivals in Sikhi.
Extending his greetings on the occasion, Modi said Guru Nanak was not only the first guru of the Sikhs but also a "guru to the entire world". The festival is celebrated not only by the Sikh community but also by people from other religions from around the world.
"During his lifetime, Guru Nanak travelled extensively promoting equality, diversity, compassion and tolerance, which became the core principles of Sikhism". The festivities in the Sikh religion revolve around the anniversaries of the 10 Sikh Gurus. The holy book of Sikhs, "Guru Granth Sahib" comprises of all the teachings and preaching of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The procession is led by Panj Pyaras. Gurudwaras are decorated with flowers and lights. Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught every person should be treated equally as Waheguru (God) created everyone and present in every soul. Devotees sing devotional songs and hymns from Sikh scriptures during the grand procession. In a message, the President said, Guru Nanak Dev gave us an enlightened message of peace, harmony and unity of all human beings. This is followed by organising "langar", a community lunch. The celebrations end with singing Gurbani at about 2 am.
