Guru Nanak ji is one of the most respected religious figures of the world. His great wisdom entails good teachings for the entire humanity.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birthday, Gurpurab, is also known as Guru Nanak’s Prakash Utsav. This blessed day celebrates the birth of the first Sikh guru, Guru Nanak. One of the most celebrated Sikh gurus and the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev is highly revered by the Sikh community.  This is one of the most sacred festivals in Sikhism, or Sikhi.
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, are occasions for celebration and prayer among the Sikhs.
Guru Nanak Jayanti or Gurpurab is being celebrated today on November 8, 2022. It will be observed as the 553rd birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
Diwali is celebrated on the 15th day of the Kartik month as per the lunar calendar, on a moonless night. Guru Nanak Jayanti falls fifteen days after the festival of lights on the auspicious occasion of Kartik Purnima. This year, on the occasion of Kartik Purnima, a total Lunar Eclipse or Chandra Grahan (also known as the Blood Moon) will take place.

Far-Sighted, Visionary Teachings For Humanity.

It is worth mentioning here that as per religious sources, Guru Nanak Dev Ji was born in 1469 at Talwandi Nankana Sahib. Guru Nanak Dev Ji laid the foundation of the Sikh religion and brought enlightenment to this world. The festival honours his life, achievements and legacy.
Guru Nanak ji’s sayings are far-sighted and visionary for entire humanity. Guru Nanak ji has stated :”Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.”
Sikhs are known world over for their service for humanity irrespective of caste, creed, colour or religion. The service towards humanity or known commonly as Sewa has been preached by all ten Sikh Gurus, starting with Guru Nanak ji. Sikhism teaches that sewa is an act of service towards Waheguru and therefore must be done regularly in order to become closer to Waheguru.
Sri Guru Nanak Dev spread the message of ‘Ik Onkar’, meaning ‘One God’ who dwells in every one of his creations and constitutes the eternal truth.

The Mool Mantra
‘Ik Onkar’ is the first word of the mool mantra and is considered the most important component in Sikhism. The mool mantra is also significant because it is the opening text of the holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib, which contains the composition and bani of all the ten Sikh Gurus.
The great teachings preached by Guru Nanak ji are countless. Means, make a living honestly. One should not exploit others to enjoy self-happiness. Serving the humanity, earning without fraud, working diligently and countless other good virtues is what he preached.
People of entire world love, respect and adore the message of Guru Nanak ji.
The message and life of Guru Nanak would continue to inspire not just Sikhs but entire humanity for all times to come.
