Guru Nanak Jayanti

19 Nov 2021

Judge: Ms. Bindiya Rangwani

Guru Nanak Devji is the first of the ten Sikh gurus and the founder of Sikhism. His birth anniversary is observed as ‘Gurpurab’, or Guru Nanak Jayanti across the globe. Guru Nanak travelled widely to spread the message of oneness and compassion. This year, the 552nd birth anniversary of Guru Nanakji was celebrated on 19th November 2021 with the following objectives:

1. To celebrate and pay obeisance to Guru Nanak Devii.
2. To understand the significance of selfless service to humanity, prosperity, and social justice for all,irrespective of the differences they have
3. To obey, respect and follow the path shown by a guru in each life to attain spiritual and holistic understanding of life.

A special sanctuary was organised and we sang the hymn ‘Ek Onkar’ followed by Ms. Bindiya Rangwani’s talk where she spoke of Guru Nanak’s message of ‘One God’ and His creation. Dr. B H Nanwani, Director, shared her insights to the importance of the day, the beliefs and teaching of the saints and their relevance in today’s times. A video on the story of Guru Nanakji and the Emperor of Baghdad was played. The story reflects Guru’s teachings that are pertinent to our lives even today.
