Guru Nanak Dev

I am not the born; how can there be either birth or death for me? I am neither a child, a young man, nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste. God is one, but he has innumerable forms. He is the creator of all and He himself takes the human form. Let no man in the world live in delusion. Without a Guru none can cross over to the other shore. Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God. Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants. Death would not be called bad, O people, if one knew how to truly die. ~ Guru Nanak Dev

Ancient records indicate Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birth took place the 3rd day of the waxing moon, or Sudi 3, month of Vaisakh, Vikram Samvat (SV) year 1526 of the Indian calendar or 14 March, 1469 of the Julian calendar. When converted to the modern day Gregorian calendar, Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birth prakash occurred 14 April, 1469 A.D. and this is the historic date attributed to his birth on the Nanakshahi Sikh calendar. However due to a number of circumstances involving legendary fanciful tales, competing holidays, choosing a date by random pick, and astrological influences, Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birthday is celebrated officially at pooran mashi, or during full moon in late fall.

In year 544 of the Nanakshahi Sikhism calendar, Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birthday prakash gurpurab is observed on pooran mashi, 28 November, 2012.

Hukamnama Sri Harmandir Sahib Ji

Where does Chor Sahib Originate?

Question : Where does chor sahib originate from and why we do? 

Answer : This is to express our regards and our respect for the Holy Scripture, the True King. The king commanded the greatest power, hence also the maximum respect and honor, in the olden days. Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Jee said that the true kings are those who love God and help others to do that. They are the rulers of the hearts of the people. The political kings are temporary kings and their authority ends with their death. The Gurus are the true kings; they teach Truth and rule our hearts. The Guru Granth Sahib is the embodiment of the spirit of all the Sikh Gurus and many other holy men whose hymns are included in it. We respect them as the true kings. 

Also the King sat on a throne under a canopy. He used to have a fanlike structure to be waved over his head as a symbol of his royalty. The Guru Granth Sahib, being the true emperor, is provided all these regal paraphernalia in the Gurudwara. We install the scripture on a throne (called Manji Sahib) with pillows around for supporting it. A canopy (Chanani) is provided above the scripture in the same way as it was put over the head of a king while he attended his court. During the session (Diwan), a person, with Chaur Sahib in his/her hand, is always in attendance on the scripture installed respectfully in the hall. For maintaining due regards and respect, we carry this holy scripture to another room when the hall is to be cleaned or when the session is over for the day. Before we bring the Guru Granth Sahib in the hall, we set everything in the hall properly. This is the court of the Guru. You will understand the whole ceremony better if you bring into mind the scene of the courtroom where everything is set and made ready before a judge enters his court. The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is the Emperor of Emperors, hence all these ceremonial decorations.

गुरु शब्द

साहिब तेरी साहिबी, सब घट रही समाय |
ज्यों मेहंदी के पात में, लाली लखी न जाय ||

Sahib teri sahibi, sab ghat rahi samay
Jyon mehandi ke pat mein, laali lakhi na jay

English Meaning : 

Power of Almighty dwells in every heart but is invisible,
Just as the red colour resides in the green mehandi leaves and is invisible

Explanation :

To get the red colour from the mehendi leaves one has to grind them into a fine paste and apply it on the hands. When the paste dries and the hands are washed, the red colour appears. In the same way one has to grind (cleanse) his mind by meditation to realize God.
