Vice President Greets the Nation on the auspicious occasion of 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the auspicious occasion of the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
Guru Nanak Dev ji was a shining apostle of the sublime spiritual ethos of India. He truly democratized religion by making spiritual truths easily understood by the common man. He rejected rituals and superstitions and kindled devotion to the Supreme God.
Guru Nanak Dev ji taught ethical and compassionate ways to lead a life of satisfaction and fulfillment. He was an icon of truth, compassion and righteousness. His virtuous life and his divine teachings will keep inspiring us to follow the path of truth and have compassion for all humankind, irrespective of caste, creed or religion.
On this joyous occasion, I pray that the light of wisdom and humanity lit by Guru Nanak Dev Ji will guide us to build a more harmonious, peaceful and compassionate world.
