25Feb: Remembering Shahidi Saaka (Massacre) in Nankaana Sahib

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

Sikh Gurdwara DC welcomes all of you. We will be remembering the massacre that happened in Nankaana Sahib. The Nankana massacre (or Saka Nankana) took place in Nankana Sahib at that time of British India, modern-day Pakistan. Sikhs were killed by the Mahant and Pathan mercenaries. The event forms an important part of Sikh history. In political significance, it comes next only to Jallianwala Bagh massacre of April 1919. The saga constitutes the core of the Gurdwara Reform Movement started by the Sikhs in early twentieth century.

Youngest Sikh Martyr Sahibzaade and Mata Gujri Ji’s Teachings: 24-Dec-2017

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

As the year approaches the end, on December 26 every year, the global world Sikh community commemorate the martyrdom of three of their most loved figures of the Guru household. On this darkest of days, their youngest hero and bravest comrade of Sikhism, Sahibzada Fateh Singh (6 years, 1699-1705, probably the youngest recorded martyr in history who knowingly and consciously laid down his life at the very tender age of 6 years) who was the youngest of Guru Gobind Singh’s four sons, Sahibzada Zorawar Singh (1696-1705), his elder brother (8years) and Mata Gujari Kaur ji, his grandmother sacrificed their lives for their faith and the right to remain Sikhs.

At such a tender age, they were bricked alive but did not bow before the tyranny and cruelty of the Mughal government and did not accepted to change their religion.

The renowned Hindi poet, Maithli Saran Gupta in his well known book Bharat Bharati said: “Whatever their present position, the future of the community whose sons can thus lay down their lives for their faith, is bound to be glorious.

Special Diwan: Guru Nanak Dev Ji Gurpurab in DC Gurudwara – Sun, 05Nov2017

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Whaeguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

Saadh Sangat Ji, please join all of us to celebrate the Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Gurupurab on Sun, 05-Nov-2017 in DC Gurudwara. Professor Surinder Singh Ji from UK (Raj Academy) will be here with his kirtan jatha.
Guru Nanak Gurpurab also known as Guru Nanak’s Prakash Utsav and Guru Nanak Jayanti, celebrates the birth of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Apart from Sikhs, Hindus and other followers of Guru Nanak’s philosophy also celebrate this festival. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, was born on April 15, 1469.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji travelled far and wide teaching people the message of one God who dwells in every one of His creations and constitutes the eternal Truth. He set up a unique spiritual, social, and political platform based on equality, fraternal love, goodness, and virtue.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teaching is understood to be practiced in three ways:

  • Vaṇḍ Chakko: Sharing with others, helping those with less who are in need
  • Kirat Karo: Earning/making a living honestly, without exploitation or fraud
  • Naam Japna: Meditating on God’s name to control the five weaknesses of the human personality.

These five weakness are kaam (lust), krodh (rage), lobh (greed), moh (attachment) and ahankar (conceit).
