Essential teachings of Shri Guru Gobind Singhji ahead of Prakash Utsav
Punjabi community is going to celebrate Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji's Jayanti or Prakash Utsav on 13th January for which the preparations are on. Also, the Punjabi festival Lohri is coinciding with Guru's Prakash Utsav.

Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji had been the tenth and last guru of the Sikh religion who is revered for his sacrifices along with being a warrior, poet and thinker.

Gurudwaras across the world are being decked up for special prayers and community meals. The processions will be carried out with the symbols of Sikhism and there will be a display of martial arts also.

Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji was born in Patna in 1666 and became the tenth Guru of the Sikhs on 11 November 1675, at the young age of nine years, succeeding his father Guru Tegh Bahadur. His establishment of Khalsa is considered as an important event in Sikhism's history including his declaration that the Guru Granth Sahib as the next permanent Sikh Guru.

He believed in casteless and non-ritualistic society and stressed belief in one God who is the master and protector of all. His teachings has been simple and appealing. It is also the time to revisit the essential teachings of Shri Guru Gobind Singhji as understood by me are as follows.

Gossip not, slander not, and malign not anyone

Never ever be jealous of anyone.

Never have vanity of your riches, lineage or looks

Never deem women as property or commodity

Never be arrogant and egoist

Egotism is the biggest evil giving rise to dualities and bad deeds

Bad thoughts, words and deeds are evils

Evil is goodness blemished

Purify yourself of evils, then goodness will shine forth by itself

Purify your mind with devotional worship and Name chanting.
