Guru Nanak Jayanti: British High Commissioner sends out greetings In Hindi

Published Date:

India is a land of multiculturalism, the plurality of the nation is famous far and wide. On the occasion of Gurupurab 2021, British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis wished people in Hindi.

Guru Nanak Jayanti is the day when Sikhism founder Guru Nanak’s birthday is celebrated.

Moreover, the High Commissioner began his speech in Hindi; he recalled the contribution of Sikhs in the United Kingdom and said, “One who considers every human being as an equal is dharmic.”

“Today is the birthday of Guru Nanak. A great day for every Sikh across the world. The precepts of the Sikh religion which he originated, kirat karo, naam japo are ones that extend well beyond just the Sikhs,” Alex said.

“We have lots of British Sikhs in armed forces as well. Indian Sikhs fought bravely in the First and Second World War and were given, I think, 14 Victoria Crosses, a remarkable achievement,” said the High Commissioner.

Guru Nanak Jayanti or Guru Purab is considered one of the most important and holiest festivals in Sikhism.

This day marks the birth of Sri Guru Nanak Dev. He laid the foundation of Sikhism. This year, it is the 552nd birth anniversary of the first Sikh Guru.

The celebrations of the auspicious festival mark the three-day Akhand Path. During this the holy book, Guru Granth Sahib is read continuously from beginning to end without a break.

It was Sri Guru Nanak Dev who spread the message of Ik Onkar, meaning One God who dwells in every one of his creations and constitutes the eternal truth.
