Guru Nanak Jayanti and Guru Parab
For Sikhs, there is no greater occasion of joy than the full moon day around October-November when Guru Nanak was born, and Guru Parab, the birthday of Guru Gobind Singh. It is a day when they rededicate themselves to unity, brotherhood and equality among all human beings. To symbolise these principles, the festival highlights a community kitchen called the Guru ka Langhar. From this free kitchen, food is served to devotees of all castes and creeds provided they sit together and eat the same food. The meal is simple and compact. After the singing of hymns and the veneration of the Guru Granth Sahib, Karah Parshad is served.
