Guru Nanak Jayanti is celebrated with great fanfare every year across the world but this year due to the pandemic, the celebrations have taken a low key. Prakash Gurpurab of Sri Gurunanak Dev Ji was celebrated by Gurudwara Sadh Sangat, Visakhapatnam on 30th November 2020 keeping the Covid-19 precautions in view. Guru Nanak Jayanthi is celebrated on the eve of Karthik Poornima every year.
As decided by the Managing Committee. Samapthi of Sehaj path was held at 4 am on Nov 30, 2020 followed by Kirtan Divan from 4.30 am to 7 am. The evening Kirtan Divan will be held from 10 pm to 11.30 pm. Maintaining social distance, Guru ka langar will be distributed.
Every year, usually the celebrations start off a week ahead in the form of ‘Prabhat Pheri’, ‘akhand path’ and ‘nagar kirtan’ and end with the evening ‘Divan’ and Langar (community meal) at the Gurudwara sadh sangat. The 48-hour continuous recital of the Guru Granth Sahib (Akhand path) is also done.
The festivities in the Sikh religion revolve around the anniversaries of the 10 Sikh Gurus. These Gurus were responsible for shaping the beliefs of the Sikhs. Their birthdays, known as Gurpurab (or Gurpurb), are occasions for celebration and prayer among the Sikhs.
