Guru Nanak Jayanti, also known as Gurpurab, is a momentous occasion for the Sikh community worldwide. It marks the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the revered founder of Sikhism.
He was born on the full moon day of the Kartik month in the Nanakshahi calendar, which corresponds to November in the Gregorian calendar. This year in 2023, Guru Nanak Jayanti falls on Monday, November 27.
Gurpurab is a prominent festival in Sikh culture, marked by vibrant celebrations and a spirit of joyous enthusiasm. Here are some heartfelt wishes and greetings to extend to your dear ones on this auspicious occasion.
Guru Nanak Jayanti is celebrated with great fervor and enthusiasm by Sikhs around the world. Gurdwaras are adorned with colorful decorations and illuminated with vibrant lights.
Devotees gather to recite sacred hymns, listen to spiritual discourses, and partake in the communal meal known as langar, which symbolizes equality and shared brotherhood.
On this sacred day, Sikhs perform Prabhat Pheris, early morning processions, and recite hymns to honor Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
The festivities begin with followers waking up around 4 am for Amrit Vela, the ambrosial hours, during which they sing Asaa-ki-Vaar or morning hymns. Following this, they participate in Katha, the recitation and exposition of sacred texts, as part of the Gurupurab observances.
