New Delhi, Nov 28: Guru Nanak Jayanti or Gurpurab is celebrated across the globe by the followers of Sikhism to mark the birth anniversary of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev.
It is one of the holiest festivals for the Sikh community which falls every year on the full moon day of Kartik month, as per the Hindu calendar.
This year, Gurpurab will be celebrated on Monday, November 30.
Guru Nanak Dev was a preacher of peace and harmony and his teachings are preserved in the holy texts, known as Guru Granth Sahib.
The first Sikh guru was born on this day, around 551 years ago in a village named Rai Bhoi di Talwandi, which is now located near Lahore, Pakistan. This place is also popularly known as Nankana Sahib.
The celebration of Gurupurab or the Prakash Parv of Guru Nanak Dev begins 15 days before his birth anniversary. 15 days before the celebration, people start doing pheris.
Two days before the birth anniversary, Akhand Path is held in all the Gurdwaras and a day before the birthday, a procession or Nagarkirtan is organised.
However, due to the growing number of COVID cases this year, the festival will be celebrated with the utmost simplicity.
