Guru Nanak Jayanti, also known as Gurpurab, is the most sacred festival of the Sikh community. It is celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev. The festival is celebrated on the day of Kartik Poornima, which is the fifteenth lunar day in the month of Kartik according to the Hindu calendar, and usually falls in the month of November by the Gregorian calendar.
On this auspicious day, people offer prayers to the first Sikh guru. They worship the Almighty for goodwill of humanity. Several states of India celebrate his birthday as a public holiday. And on the day of Gurpurab, people remember his preachings and recite them. At BBPS GRHM, all religious festivals are celebrated enthusiastically with a conviction that these celebrations promote secularism and bring students closer to each other’s cultural beliefs and traditions to develop respect and understanding for customs and traditions of all religions.
These festivals teach kids about the importance of family, traditions and values. It gives an insight into various culture and its principles. The common aspect while celebrating multiple religious festivals is the expression of gratitude to the Creator.
