Guru Nanak's Birthday Celebrating Today

Guru Nanak Jayanti also identified as Guru Nanak Gurpurab and Guru Nanak's Prakash Utsav, commemorates the birth of the first Sikh GuruGuru Nanak. This is one of the most holy events in Sikhism. Apart from Sikhs, Hindus and other devotees of Guru Nanak's values also rejoice this festival. 

The festival is normally similar for all Gurpurabs; only the mantras are dissimilar. The festivals generally start with Prabhat Pheris. Prabhat Pheris are early morning pageants that commence at the Gurudwaras and go on around the localities singing hymns. Normally two days before the birthday, Akhand Path (a forty-eight-hour non-stop interpreting of the Guru Granth Sahib, the sacred book of the Sikhs) is alleged in the Gurdwaras.
