Guru Nanak Dev Ji Gurpurb 2012 Thu, 15 Nov 2012 21:27:21 +0000 Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara Read More]]> 2012 Guru Nanak Dev Ji Gurpurb Program

Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Gurpurab is regarded as one of the most inspirational days in the Sikh Calendar.  Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teaching can be summarized, in three ways:

1. Naam: Guru ji led the Sikhs directly to practice Simran and Naam Japna – meditation on God through reciting, chanting, singing and constant remembrance followed by deep study _ comprehension of God’s Name and virtues. In real life to practice and tread on the path of Dharam (righteousness) – The inner thought of the Sikh thus stays constantly immersed in praises and appreciation of the Creator and the ONE ETERNAL GOD Waheguru.

2. Kirat Karni: He expected the Sikhs to live as honorable householders and practice Kirat Karni – To honestly earn by ones physical and mental effort while accepting both pains _ pleasures as GOD’s gifts and blessings. One is to stay truthful at all times and, fear none but the Eternal Super Soul. Live a life founded on decency immersed in Dharam – life controlled by spiritual, moral _ social values.

3. Vand Chakna: The Sikhs were asked to share their wealth within the community by practicing Vand Chakna – “Share and Consume together”. The community or Sadh Sangat is an important part of Sikhism. One must be part of a community that is living the flawless objective values set out by the Sikh Gurus and every Sikh has to contribute in whatever way possible to the common community pool. This spirit of Sharing and Giving is an important message from Guru Nanak.

To celebrate the 544th Gurpurb of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the Gurdwara Sahib has put together a unique four day program.
