In recognition of Guru Nanak Dev's Birthday, the Punjabi Media Association of Alberta & the Sikh Community of Edmonton are collecting food and money in support of Edmonton's Food Bank. Thank you for sharing Langar with others.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated world-wide on Kartik Puranmashi, the thirteenth full-moon of the year. In 2018, we will be recognizing Guru Nanak’s Birthday on Friday, November 23rd.
Through popular tradition, Nanak’s teaching is understood to be practiced in three ways:
Va?? Chakko: Sharing with others, helping those with less who are in need Kirat Karo: Earning/making a living honestly, without exploitation or fraud Naam Japna: Meditating on God’s name to control your 5 evils to eliminate suffering and live a happy life.
