Guru Nanak Birthday Celebrate
Guru Nanak’s birthday is celebrated by the Sikhs as Gurupurb. Gurudwaras are beautifully decorated. Sikhs go to the Gurudwara and listen to the Gurubani from their Holy Book, Guru Granth Sahib
Guru Nanak Dev was born on April 15, 1469, in the place named Talwandi. His father Kalyan Chand was a farmer. They were married at the age of 16. He also had two sons named Srichand and Lakshmichand.
Guru Nanak is the first Guru (Adi Guru) of Sikhs. Their followers address them with the names of Guru Nanak, Baba Nanak, and Nanakshah. Later, the name of Talwandi had to be removed in the name of Nanak.
In Guru Nanak, signs of intense intellect began to appear since childhood. They did not feel like reading. At the age of 8, school missed school, and at the same time, he started spending time in spiritual contemplation and Satsang. He died on September 22, 1539, at the age of 70.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birthday is celebrated every year in the name of ‘Gurupurb’. According to his Hindu calendar, the full moon of Kartik month is also celebrated, which is also called ‘Kartik Purnima’. This is the main festival of Sikhs.
