A nagar kirtan to mark the 354th ‘Parkash Purb’ of 10th Sikh master Guru Gobind Singh was organised by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandak Committee (SGPC) on Tuesday.
The nagar kirtan started from Akal Takht after Giani Jagtar Singh, additional head granthi of Darbar Sahib, performed ardas.
Led by the Panj Pyaras (the five beloved ones), the procession moved through different markets of the city where devotees organised langar. The band and gatka performers also joined the procession. Residents showered flowers on the procession to pay their respect to the 10th Sikh Guru.
Bibi Jagir Kaur, chief, SGPC, said Guru Gobind Singh’s entire life is a lesson for the humanity. She said Guru Gobind Singh sacrificed his life fighting evil in society.
Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD) also organised a nagar kirtan from its headquarters, which culminated at Darbar Sahib. Students and faculty of the institute run by the CKD participated in the procession.
Nirmal Singh, chief, CKD, said they organised the annual processions as a part of its dharma parchar programme. He said people should try to live life as per the principles laid down by the religion.
