Guru Nanak Dev Ji Gurpurab Celebrations – November 6th to 13th 2022

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Ji,

Congratulations to the entire sangat on the upcoming Prakash Purab of Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji!
Let’s dig into the Guru’s treasure of Naam and Gurbani.

ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਕਰਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਾ ਸਾਰ ਨ ਜਾਣਾ ਤੇਰੀ ॥
Giạanu ḍɦiạanu kicɦɦu karamu na jaañaa saar na jaañaa ṭeree ॥
I know nothing about wisdom, meditation and good deeds; I know nothing about Your excellence.

ਸਭ ਤੇ ਵਡਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਜਿਨਿ ਕਲ ਰਾਖੀ ਮੇਰੀ ॥੪॥੧੦॥੫੭॥
Sabɦ ṭe vadaa saṭiguru naanaku jini kal raakɦee meree ॥4॥10॥57॥
Guru Nanak is the greatest of all; He saved my honor in this Dark Age of Kali Yuga. ||4||10||57||
(Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji  ang 749)

Guru ji guides us to do kirtan again and again. 

ਕਲਜੁਗ ਮਹਿ ਕੀਰਤਨੁ ਪਰਧਾਨਾ ॥
Kalajug mahi keeraṭanu paraḍɦaanaa ॥
In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, the Kirtan of the Lord’s Praises are most sublime and exalted.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਪੀਐ ਲਾਇ ਧਿਆਨਾ ॥
Guramukɦi japeeạai laaī ḍɦiạanaa ॥
Become Gurmukh, chant and focus your meditation.
(Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji  ang 1075)
