Guru Nanak Jayanti History, Significance and Celebrations:

The festival of Gurpurab honors the life and legacy of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, who is believed to be the founder of Sikhism. Guru Nanak Dev Ji was born in 1469 at Talwandi Nankana Sahib and rejected the caste system and their idol worship.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji believed that with sincere prayers, one could connect to the almighty. All his teachings were collected together to form the sacred book called Guru Granth Sahib – which is the central holy scriptures for Sikhism. Guru Granth Sahib is regarded as the final, sovereign and eternal guru. It preaches selfless service to humanity and spreading joy by living off only what one needs without any greed towards the world’s resources.

On October 14th, the Sikhs go and read The Guru Granth Sahib by reciting it continuously for 48 hours. After the recitation, there’s a procession called Nagarkirtan where five men (the Panj Pyare) carry a flag that has the Sikhs symbol on it (Nishan Sahib). There are hymns being sung and people show off their martial art skills while they’re walking around.
