The Guru Nanak Jayanti dates and time vary each year as they are determined according to the lunar calendar. The month of Kartik, as per the Hindu Panchang, is deemed to be extremely auspicious. It is in this month that the festival of Diwali also occurs and the celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji‘s birthday happen 15 days after it on Kartik Purnima. This year will mark the 553rd birth anniversary of the first guru of the Sikhs.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teachings have guided the Sikh community, and his lessons are recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib, offering direction to his followers. The entire religion seeks guidance from this religious text and people take it as the eternal Guru that teaches everyone to believe in the idea of “One” creator. It teaches everyone to walk on the path of selflessness, humanity, service, and social justice. It is for these reasons that the legacy of Guru Nanak Dev Ji is celebrated with fervor, honoring his achievements and teachings on this day.
This day is a reminder of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and his gift of wisdom to the world. As a result, devotees perform many rituals to commemorate all that he stood for. Here are the prominent rituals of this day-
Naam Japna: Remembering the Creator at all times.
Kirtan Karna: Always volunteering to offer service selflessly.
Vand Chhakana: Willing to share all that you have with everyone.
Let us now take you through some facts about the life and teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji-
A popular story about Guru Nanak Dev Ji narrates how he refused to wear the sacred thread worn by Hindu boys of the upper class. He was aversed to the idea of distinguishing himself from others, saying that one should be distinguished on the basis of his deeds and not some symbolic thread. This was the train of thought of a little boy, aged 11 years. This boy was indeed special and grew up to look for the true meaning behind life and God. He left his home and family in search of the ultimate truth. He began his journey by crusading against intolerance, discrimination, meaningless rituals, and fanaticism. He propounded the idea of there being one God and the fact that every man and woman were born equal in the eyes of this creator. It is on this simple idea that the tenets of Sikhism are based.
His teachings echo the powerful message of being one with humanity and nature, teaching us to shed all our differences and rejoice in the gift of life bestowed upon all of us!
