Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti (Birth Anniversary)!

Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak or Baba or Father Nanak (1469-1539), was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus, is being celebrated this year today, the 30th of November or whenever the full-moon day called Kartik Purnima occurs during October-November every year all over the world. Guru Nanak is believed to have travelled across Asia teaching people the message of 'one God' who dwells in every creation of His and constitutes the eternal truth. With this concept he created a unique spiritual, social and political platform based on equality, fraternity and virtue. We wish you all a very blessed Nanak Jayanti. 

We remember Guru Nanak today and his teachings, his messages and his immortal devotional poems that are composed musically as Bhajans in basic Punjabi, cutting across all religious and linguistic barriers in India. Composers, Vocalists and singers have been presenting his Bhajans or devotional songs to devotees and music lovers since centuries. My father and my first musical guru Tabla Maestro music composer and director, Late Pandit Vivekanand or Bibekananda Bhattacharyya had also composed numerous devotional lyrics into melodious bhajans, including those of Guru Nanak. 

I take great pleasure in presenting one of the Nanak Bhajans composed by my father-guru and recorded by me for you all. This bhajan is from my Album of devotional songs, 'Hari Darshan Ki Pyaasi

Hope this devotional presentation gives you enjoyment as well as peace of mind in the times of gloom and crisis. Baba Nanak tells you to look up to God, your only true friend or kin on this earth, for the ultimate love and solace. Best Wishes...
