Festivals of India — Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti
Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti is a Sikh festival that commemorates the birthday of Guru Gobind Singh (December 22, 1666 – October 7, 1708 CE), the tenth Guru (Prophet-Master) of Sikhism. It is a religious celebration in which prayers for prosperity are offered. Hundreds thousands of devotees and pilgrims throng Amritsar’s Golden Temple.
Guru Gobind Singh is revered as The Tenth Nanak, Sarbans Dani (The merciful donor, who sacrificed his all), Mard Agamra (A Man without any parallels) and Shah-e-Shahenshah (The Emperor of Emperors).He was born as Gobind Rai, to the ninth Guru of Sikhism, Guru Teg Bahadur, and Mata Gujri, at Patna Sahib. He ascended to become the tenth Sikh Guru at the young age of nine, following the martyrdom of his father.
He came to be renowned as a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher. Under his guidance and inspiration, the Khalsa followed a strict moral and spiritual discipline. It was through his courage that the people rose against Mughal oppression in India. Before his death in 1708, he declared the Guru Granth Sahib, which is Sikhism’s Holy Scripture to be the permanent Sikh Guru.
According to Hindu calendar Guru Gobind Singh was born on Saptami, Paush, Shukla Paksha, 1723 Vikram Samvat. Accordingly, 349th Birth Anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh is celebrated on January 16, 2016.
