Guru Nanak Jayanti-www.sdosta.org.cn

Writing-and-Speaking "As in the sky flies the white-clothed crane, keeping its mind behind, in its heart continually remembering its young ones; so the true Guru keeps the disciple absorbed in the love of God, and also keeps him in his heart." Those who see Truth and speak Truth, Their bodies and minds be.e truthful. Truth is their evidence, Truth is their instruction, True is the praise of the truthful. Those who have forgotten Truth cry in pain and weep while departing. Guru Nanak is one of the enlightened saints who were born in 1426 AD at Tolevandi near Lahore, founder of Sikhism. Gurudwara Ber Sahib is situated in Sultanpur Lodhi in Kapurthala region, 36km from Jalandhar. This is the judge where the firstborn seer Guru Nanak got enlightenment and created ‘Sukhmani Sahib’ time attractive tub in the river Kali Bein. It was from Sultanpur Lodhi that Guru Nanak boarded on his multisyllabic lecture journeys called ‘Udasis’ in the Faith tradition. Along with Sikhs, the Nanakpanthi Hindus and other followers of Guru Nanaks teachings and philosophy also celebrate the festival of Gurunanak Jayanti – the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, an occasion for great delight. It is one of the most important festivals in the Sikh calendar. The celebration revolves around the anniversaries of ten Sikh gurus. This year Gurunanak Jayanti will be celebrated on 28th November 2012. The colours of this celebration are seen mostly in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh were maximum number of Sikh resides. Some of the Sindhis also celebrate this festival as they have faith in Gurunanaks philosophy and teachings. The merriments for the day begin with early morning processions known as the Prabhat pheri; the procession starts at a local Gurudwara and makes its way around the neighbourhood, chanting verses and singing hymns. Prabhat pheris are held on the days prior to Gurunank Jayanti: and for the three days too, there is a continuous reading of the Guru Granth Sahib, from beginning to end, without a break. The day of the festival is marked by a special procession in which pride of place is reserved for the Guru Granth Sahib, carried on a beautifully decorated float and ac.panied by musicians and five armed guards that represent the Panj Pyaras (five beloved ones). Prayers and Kirtans at Gurudwaras are followed by .munity meals it is also known as Langar, where all- irrespective of religious conviction are wel.ed. During the procession, the leaders spread the message of Gurunanak among the people who have joined this procession. The celebration is generally same for all Gurupurabs, only the choruses are different. On Gurupurab the celebration .mence early in the morning from about 4-5 am. The day begins with Asa-di-var that is known as morning hymns. This time of the day is referred as Amrit Mela. In some of the Gurudwaras, night prayers sessions are also held that initiates around sunset and by the mean time evening prayers are recited, followed by Kirtans till late night. Gurbani is sung by the worshippers at about 1.20 am at night, which is the actual time of birth of the Seer Guru Nanak and the celebration concludes at around 2 am. I wish all the followers of Guru Nanak a very Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
