The sacred day is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the first of 10 Sikh Gurus who touted as the founder of Sikhism. This year, Guru Nanak Jayanti or Guru Nanak’s Prakash Utsav falls on November 4, 2017. Devotees around the world offer prayers and celebrate the Guru Nanak Gurpurab festival with much respect and great zeal.

Quote Reads: Only fools argue whether to eat meat or not. They don’t understand truth, nor do they meditate on it. Who can define what is meat and what is plant? Who knows where the sin lies, being a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian?
Quote Reads: Asceticism doesn’t lie in mere words; He is an ascetic who treats everyone alike. Asceticism doesn’t lie in visiting burial places; it lies not in wandering about nor in bathing at places of pilgrimage. Asceticism is to remain pure amidst impurities.

Quote Reads: I am neither a child, a young man, nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste.

Quote Reads: I am neither a child, a young man, nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste.

Quote Reads: Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.

Quote Reads: Burn worldly love, rub the ashes and make ink of it, make the heart the pen, the intellect the writer, write that which has no end or limit.

Quote Reads: The production of children, the nurture of those born, and the daily life of men, of these matters woman is visibly the cause.

Quote Reads: Whatever kind of seed is sown in a field, prepared in due season, a plant of that same kind, marked with the peculiar qualities of the seed, springs up in it.

Quote Reads: There is but One God, His name is Truth, He is the Creator, He fears none, he is without hate, He never dies, He is beyond the cycle of births and death, He is self-illuminated, He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru. He was True in the beginning, He was True when the ages commenced and have ever been True, He is also True now.
Guru Nanak Jayanti celebrations will begin early morning with Prabhat Pheris, a morning procession starting at the beautifully decorated Gurudwaras.

It will be followed by the community lunch called ‘langars’ and finally end with at 2 am with singing Gurbani. We wish each and everyone celebrating Guru Nanak’s birth anniversay, a very Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti 2017.
