Birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Sahib 
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Present day Sikhism is based on the teachings of Guru Nanak, the first Guru, and the nine Gurus who followed him. Every year, Guru Nanak's birthday commences with an Akhand Path: a reading of the Sikh holy scriptures continuously from beginning to end. This reading takes over 48 hours, and begins two days prior to Guru Nanak's birthday. The day before his birthday, processions are held with singers and musicians, and the actual birthday is spent singing, praying, and decorating gurdwaras.
