ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ ਪੁਰਬ ਦੀਆਂ ਲੱਖ ਲੱਖ ਵਧਾਈਆਂ

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਪ੍ਰਗਟਿਆ
ਮਿਟਿ ਧੁੰਧ ਜਗਿ ਚਾਨਣ ਹੋਆ l
ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ ਪੁਰਬ ਦੀਆਂ ਲੱਖ ਲੱਖ ਵਧਾਈਆਂ




Prakash Utsav Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji

Today, we are celebrating the birthday of the creator himself, Shri Guru Nanak Dev ji (The First Sikh Guru). The unique creator who resides within creation, without fear, beyond time and the cycle of births and deaths!
Guru Nanak ascertained that the superstructure of religion develops from compassion and dedication. He preached oneness of God and there is one common creator of all living beings. In the eyes of God, there is no difference of religion. The best religion resides inside of every human being. It can be achieved with selfless thoughts, deeds and Guru’s meditation.
He advocated that all human beings are equal with no discrimination of color, caste and creed. God resides in every living thing. The human body is the temple of God.
Guru Nanak Dev ji was a householder. He believed that spiritual salvation can be attained while leading a family. One must work hard and make honest earning to run a household. And the income so earned should be squared with the needy.  The aim of a householder should be to spread happiness around and serve others. Perceive the presence of God in all the human beings!
As universe is the creation of God, one must respectful to the same. Serve the universe in harmony with all the divine forces of the environment.
Guru Nanak urges that GURU is a must to lead a spiritual life. Only a GURU can unleash a holy man out of a common human being. Without GURU it is a total darkness around.

New and Renewable Energy Minister, Sr. Bikram Singh Majithia extends the heartiest wishes on the birth of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.  He believes that one of the most beautiful ways to honor our great Guru is to enlighten the spirit he brought to the world. The spirit is one of tolerance, compassion and not getting caught up in religious ritualism.

Baba Buddha Ji


Baba Buddha ji (6 October 1506 ­ 8 September 1631), one of the most venerated, primal figures of early Sikhism,was born on 6 October 1506 at the village of Katthu Nangal, 18 km northeast of Amritsar.

After sometime the family settled down in Dhalla village not far away from river Ravi opposite Kartarpur. "Bura", as he was originally named, was the only son of Bhai Suggha, a Hindu Jatt of Randhawa clan, and Mai Gauran, who was born into a Sandhu family.
Also referred to reverently as Baba Buddha Ji; Bhai Buddha occupies a unique position in Sikh history and in the hearts of all Sikhs. He applied the tilak of guruship to five Gurus, saw and had the vision of seven Gurus and remained in close association with the first six Sikh Gurus from 1521 to 1631 for over one hundred years.

He was the first "priest" (or Giani) of Harimandir Sahib, and laid the foundations of Dera Baba Nanak and most of the holy buildings at Amritsar. It was the greatness of Guru Nanak that the seva (service or task) of applying tilak was given to Baba Buddha ji, given the fact that he belonged to a so­called low caste.

One day, when he was young, he was grazing cattle outside the village when Guru Nanak happened to pass by. According to Bhai Mani Singh's, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala (The Holy Sikh Jewels), Bura went up to him and, making obeisance with a bowl of milk as his offering, prayed to him saying:
"O sustainer of the poor! I am fortunate to have had a sight of you today. Absolve me now from the circuit of birth and death."

The Guru said, You are only a young man, yet you talk very wisely." Then he related a story to Guru Nanak, "Some soldiers set up camp by our village and then they mowed down all of our crops, the ripe ones and the unripe ones, as well. Then it occurred to me that, when no one could check these indiscriminating soldiers, who would restrain death from laying his hand upon us, young or old."
At this Guru Nanak pronounced the words: "You are not a child; you possess the wisdom of an old man." From that day, Bura, came to be known as Bhai Buddha, buddha in Punjabi means wise (wisdom usually only comes with age).Later, when advanced in years, he was known as Baba Buddha.

Baba Buddha passed his last days in meditation at Jhanda Ramdas, or simply called Ramdas, a village founded by his son, Bhai Bhana, where the family had since shifted from its native village of Katthu Nangal. As the end came, on 8 September 1631, Guru Hargobind was at his bedside. According to the Gurbilas Chhevin Patshahi, the Guru gave his shoulder to the bier and performed the last rites over Bhai Gurdas, further quoting the Gurbilas, started a reading of the Adi Granth in memory of Baba Buddha.


The obsequies concluded with Bhai Gurdas completing the recital and Guru Hargobind presenting a turban to Bhai Buddha's son, Bhana. Two shrines stand in Ramdas commemorating Baba Buddha, Gurdwara Tap Asthan Baba Buddha Ji, where the family lived on the southern edge of the village, and Gurdwara Samadhan, where he wascremated
