    Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti commemorates the birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, the 10th guru of the Sikhs. He was born in Patna, and through his life set an example for others by always standing up for righteousness and equality.

    As per the Gregorian calendar, Guru Gobind Singh’s Jayanti falls in December or January every year. However, the annual celebrations of the Guru’s birth anniversary take place in accordance with Nanakshahi calendar. This year, it falls on January 20.

    Devotees, on this day, come together and offer prayers. Some even join the large processions which are organised. They sing devotional songs and share food with adults and children. On their way, they stop at gurudwaras, their places of worship, and offer special prayers.

    It was Guru Gobind Singh who introduced the five ‘K’s that Sikhs abide by:

    Kesh: uncut hair
    Kangha: a wooden comb
    Kara: an iron or steel bracelet worn on the wrist
    Kirpan: a sword
    Kacchera: short breeches

    A poet and writer, Guru Gobind Singh declared the Holy Scriptures of Guru Granth Sahib as the permanent Guru of Sikhs. Guru Gobind Singh passed away in 1708.
