Photos: Guru Nanak Devji Prakash Utsav

Gurupurab festival - Gurunanak Jayanti or Gurunanak's Prakash Utsav was on 6th November this year. Kartik Paurnima was also being celebrated on the same day. That was the beautiful devotional day for me as I visited Gurudwara and Ayyappa Swami Temple in the evening. 

Sharing some of the beautiful moments of the Gurudwara of Dhule. 

This Gurudwara is on Mumbai-Agra highway. I have taken some of the photos from Gurudwara entrance and some other searching a safe place around. 

So..let's go to relive those moments of Bhakti on Gurupurab Festival...

Although, this Gurudwara is on highway, it is very peaceful. What fascinates me is that it is a 'Guru' Dwara - the Place of Guru. When I entered there, I just forgot everything - the chaos of traffic around and the chaos within my mind.

I feel like I never knew this peace was within me. Many people ask that why do we need religions basically. I think, for this discovery, the peace is within oneself. Image: Gurudwara building on Mumbai Agra Highway decorated on Gurupurab Festival

We are losing our natural joy with our hectic lifestyle nowadays. This Light is not just the light of decoration, but visiting Gurudwara brings the inner light of supreme truth of eternal happiness.

When we enter the Gurudwara we just want to bow the serenity! I don't know much about Sikh rituals but it's Gurudwara and when we are taking Darshana of Guru, we bow to them forgetting our 'Aham'.

One courteous guy there who was distributing Prasad told me that the Keertan programs will be till 2 AM. I had to leave, so I couldn't attend the program. But the time spent there will give me energy to work calmly in the material chaos till I visit there again next time

I know, you are speechless while experiencing the ocean of peace you have discovered just now. :-)
