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||
