A holy festival that is densely celebrated in northern part of India, Guru Nanak Jayanti, or Gurpurab, is a sacred festival that marks the birth anniversary of the first guru of Sikhism — Guru Nanak Dev.

Guru Nanak Dev was a man of peace who spent his entire life promoting equality and tolerance. Guru Nanak Ji had been devoted to the Divine since boyhood, He was born in 1469 in the village of Rai Bhoi di Talwandi, today known as Nankana Sahib, near Lahore, Pakistan.

Guru Nanak wrote many hymns, which Guru Arjan compiled in the Adi Granth. He went to pilgrimage places all around India. The primary verses of the Guru Granth Sahib dwell on the fact that the universe’s creator is one. His words also spread the message of selfless service to humanity. 

Early morning processions or Prabhat Pheris is a traditional service where devotees sing hymns. This begins two days before the festival and travel to the localities. People observe the Akhand Path by reciting the Sikh holy text, Guru Granth Sahib. A day before Guru Nanak’s birth date, devotees also perform Nagar kirtan. The Panj Pyare, or five men carrying the Sikh triangle flag, Nishan Sahib, lead the parade. During the parade, the holy Guru Grant Sahib is carried in a palanquin, and people chant hymns in groups and play traditional musical instruments.

On Gurpurab, prayers are held in Gurdwaras throughout the day. The many components of the festival continue until late at night when devotees indulge in the langar. On the important day, many people participate in Sewa and offer food.
