ITANAGAR, Nov 3: Governor Dr B D Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have conveyed warm greetings and best wishes on the auspicious occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, also known as Gurpurab by the Sikhs across the world.
Conveying his warm greetings to the people of the state, the Governor in his message said that Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh sangat showed all the path of spiritualism, justice and humanism. His messages of love and amity have always strengthened the splendid cultural fabric of the society. He also taught all to fight against oppression and injustice.
The Governor further said that the Guru’s preaching inspires all to stand for equality, kindness and brotherhood. His principle of purity of mind, earning an honest living and selfless service is as relevant today as it has ever been. These ideals continue to guide all on the path of righteousness.
“May this occasion inspire everyone to follow the ideals of Guru Nanak Dev”, the Governor wished.
In his message, the CM said, Gurpurab is one of the most revered days observed by the Sikh community to glorify the tenets of Sikhism, which commemorates the birth of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. Both in the literal sense and in essence, Gurpurab means ‘festival of the gurus’. Owing to the fact that Guru Nanak enlightened the world with his profound teachings, the day is also known as ‘Prakash Utsav.’
“Along with our Sikh brothers and sisters, let us celebrate the historic day with great fervour and collective spirit and effort while asserting the message of morality, hard work and truth inherent in the preaching of Guru Nanak,” said Pema in a message here this evening.
