- Baisakhi is the festival of giving thanks to nature, on this day the Sun enters the Aries sign
On the day of Baisakhi, Sun enters Aries, hence it is also called Aries Sankranti. This year, this festival will be celebrated on 13 April. Baisakhi is mainly a festival of prosperity and happiness. This festival is celebrated with joy at the ripening and harvesting of crops. When the fields filled with crops are ready by cooking, the farmer greets the Lord by dancing and singing for this gift of nature. After some portion of the ripe crop is offered to Agni Dev, some portion of it is distributed to all the people in the form of prasad. Folk dances are performed to thank what is received from Mother Earth as a good harvest.
The foundation of the Khalsa Panth lay 300 years ago
The tenth Sikh Guru Gobind Singh laid the foundation of the Khalsa Panth in the year 1699 at Anandpur Sahib on the day of Baisakhi. The main goal of Guru Gobind Singh behind the establishment of the Khalsa-Panth was to free the people from the atrocities of the Mughal kings of the time and to uplift their religious, moral and practical life. Special festivals are celebrated in Gurudwaras on this day. On this day, bathing in the sacred rivers of all North India is considered to be of importance.
The day begins with the worship of Gurugranth Sahib
At 4 am, the Guru Granth Sahib is ceremonially brought out of the room. The Guru Granth Sahib is seated on a throne after a symbolic bath with milk and water. After this, Panch Pyare Panchabani sings. In the day after the Ardas, the Guru is offered hard offerings. Bhangra and Gidda are the traditional dances of Punjab on this day. People gather around the fire in the evening to celebrate the joy of the new crop. Devotees from all over the country gather at the gurdwaras for the Ardas. The main ceremony takes place at Anandpur Sahib, where the foundation of the Khalsa Panth was laid.
