Guru Nanak Jayanti
Gratitude to Firemen for their service to Humanity
Guru Nanakji established a religion based on compassion and contentment, eliminating the veil of ignorant superstitions and rituals. His divine teachings, which transcend worldy limitations of any religion, are indeed a part of or rich heritage and culture. Guru Nanak Jayanti is hence observed by Anam Prem, but in a different way – by visiting Fire Brigade stations and meeting the Fire Fighters. It is said the Guru Nanak was Raja Janak reborn (Raja Janak was the father of Sita, princess who married Lord Rama). Raja Janak was known to keep his one foot in burning flames all day.The Fire Brigade People are at war for all the twenty-four hours with fires and calamities. They clasp fire – only with a view that we commoners should loll in comfort and warmth.
To sprinkle love on such warriors who embrace Fire, we believe, is real offering to Guru Nanakji.
