Guru Nanak Dev's Birthday Celebration
Gurdwara Singh Sabha (4504 Mill Woods Rd South)
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 2017, we will be recognizing Guru Nanak’s Birthday on Saturday, November 4, 20167
Special thanks to the Punjabi Media Association of Alberta and Sikh Community of Edmonton for their ongoing commitment to making a difference for thousands of Edmontonians in need.
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.
