Canada is proud to be home to one of the largest Sikh communities outside India. Guru Nanak was the first of the 10 Sikh Gurus and was born in 1469. Guru Nanak birth anniversary celebrations glorify the doctrines of Sikhism. Thousands of devotees, including children, were seen taking bath in holy sarovar at the Golden Temple.

The celebration begins as early as 4 am with Prabhat Pheris, the morning procession on Guru Nanak Jayanti. Guru Nanak enlightened the entire world with his deep and philosophical religious teachings; this is the reason this day is also celebrated as "Prakash Utsav".

This year will mark the 548th birthday of Guru Nanak. Devotees sing devotional songs and hymns from Sikh scriptures during the grand procession. "Langars" (community kitchen), were also arranged at most gurdwaras. Mr Kovind said, Guru Nanak Dev stood against exploitation and atrocity, and dedicated himself to the service and welfare of the underprivileged.
