    Hindus greet Sikhs on Guru Gobind Singh birthday

    2011-01-02 05:30:00

    Hindus have sent early greetings to Sikh communities world over for upcoming birthday of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib (1666-1708), tenth Guru of Sikhism.

    Well known Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a release in Nevada (USA) today, expressed warmest greetings on this sacred occasion, wishing that it brought joy, happiness, blessings and cheer to all.

    Rajan Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed that all religions should work together for a just and peaceful world. Dialogue would bring us mutual enrichment, he added.

    Founded by Guru Nanak Sahib (born 1469), Sikhism is the fifth largest religion in the world. Birthday celebrations of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib usually include reading of holy scripture Guru Granth Sahib, special assemblies in gurdwaras, discourses, processions (nagar-kirtan) through towns/cities chanting holy hymns, gatkas (battle display with traditional weapons), kirtan-darbar, amrit-sanchar, langar (community meal), illuminations, friends/families exchanging greetings, etc. (ANI)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
