History of Guru Nanak Dev
On April 15, 1469, Guru Nanak Dev was born at Rai Bhoi Ki Talwandi, which is near Lahore. This area is now in Sheikhpura district, which is in today’s Pakistan. There is now a gurdwara built in his memory at his birthplace called Nankana Sahib, which is in the Punjab province that is now a part of Pakistan. People recall Guru Nanak Dev as a spiritual teacher who founded Sikhism in the 15th century. He wrote 974 hymns of Guru Granth Sahib.
Celebrating Guru Nanak Jayanti
Celebrations at Gurdwaras start two days before the festival eve of Gurupurab every year. Akhand Path is held, which is a constant recitation of Guru Granth Sahib for 48 hrs. Also, a day before the festival eve, a Nagar Kirtan is organised.
Langars Are Organised
Langar in Persian is called ‘an almshouse’, or a place for the poor and needy. And in Sikhism langars are organized on massive scales to feed poor and needy people without asking about their caste, religion, gender, or class. The whole community contributes to the langars without objecting and welcomes the people as Guru’s guests.
