Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 550th Gurpurab and Program Schedule to Nov 17 2019

Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 550th Gurpurab and Program Schedule to Nov 17 2019

Akhand Path Sewa Starts November 10 at 1PM  – Bhog Tuesday November 12 at 4PM

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Ji,

With the grace of Waheguru, we are eagerly waiting to celebrate the 550th Gurpurab of Dhan Dhan Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

On September 12th we initiated the 50 Days of Waheguru simran that continues to November 9th.

Going forward next weekend, we will start the Akhand Path sewa for Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 550th Prakash Purab from Sunday November 10th  to Tuesday November 12th.

Also,  to commemorate this once in a lifetime remarkable occasion further, programs have been set up to the November 17th weekend. Please read details below.

As we celebrate, we  must also realize that Guru Ji went to great lengths to stand up against injustice and inequality that occurred through political, religious, social or economic systems in his era.  Guru Ji taught us to help and remember those suffering.

Lest we forget; the horrific attacks on Sikhs, and the injustice of 1984  impacts many to this day.  Please see attached poster to watch a special documentary called ‘1984 when the sun didn’t rise’  that will be screening at University of Guelph on November 14th.   You may RSVP at UOGUEL.PH/SUNDIDNTRISE if interested in attending.

Both tragic and happy occasions go hand-in hand in our lives. Guru ji guides us that we can be strong, and at peace by reciting ‘Naam’  and through the Shabad Guru singing praises of Waheguru.

jinee naam dhiaaiaa ge masakat ghaal ||
Those who have meditated on the Naam, the Name of the Lord,
and departed after having worked by the sweat of their brows

naanak te mukh aujale ketee chhuTee naal ||1||
-O Nanak, their faces are radiant in the Court of the Lord, and many are saved along with them! ||1||

Guru Ramdas Ji Gurpurab – Programs to October 27 2019

Posted Posted in Weekly Programs

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Ji,

This weekend we celebrate Prakash Purab of Shri Guru Ramdas Ji.  Known as Jethi Ji at birth, Guru Ramdas Ji lost his parents as a child and worked extremely hard each day to earn a small meal to eat.  When Jetha Ji came into the company of Guru Amar Das Ji, he became a devoted Sikh and served and accepted Guru’s orders without any complaints.  Thus Jetha Ji was blessed with the Guruship and became Guru Ramdas Ji.  Guru Ramdas Ji laid the foundation of the holy city of Amritsar,  which was formerly known as  Ramdaspur.  Today,  thousands of devotees and visitors pay respects at Darbar Sahib and enjoy meals free each day.

Dha(n)n Dha(n)n Raamadhaas Gur Jin Siriaa Tinai Savaariaa ||’

Blessed, blessed is Guru Raam Daas; He who created You, has also exalted You.

Guru Granth Sahib Ji – 968  Bhatt Sathaa & Balvand Raag Raamkalee

Let’s take some time this weekend to pay tribute to our beloved Shri Guru Ramdas Ji and be part of the Gurpurab celebration by listening to Gurbani path and kirtan.  Thank you.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Ji,

We take this moment to salute the fallen Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal of Texas.  We are proud Sikhs because of role models like Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal.   As the first Sikh in the Harris County Sheriff’s office,  Deputy Dhaliwal wore his uniform with turban with great honour, pride and respect.  He made the ultimate sacrifice in serving his fellow human beings in the name of love and selfless duty.  Read more at sikhnet.com

In the words  of Dhan Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji
 ‘Jau tau prem khelan ka chao. Sir dhar tali gali mori aao.’
If you wish to play the game of love, come my way, with your head on the palm of your hand.
(Guru Granth Sahib Ji (GGS) p.1412)
