Guru Nanak Dev's Birthday Celebration
Guru Nanak Dev Ji was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated world-wide on Kartik Puranmashi, the thirteenth full-moon of the year. In 2015, we will be recognizing Guru Nanak’s Birthday on Wednesday, November 25.
Through popular tradition, Nanak’s teaching is understood to be practiced in three ways:
Vaṇḍ Chakkō: Sharing with others, helping those with less who are in need
Kirat Karō: Earning/making a living honestly, without exploitation or fraud
Naam Japna: Meditating on God’s name to control your 5 evils to eliminate suffering and live a happy life.
