Guru Gaddi Day in Espanola New Mexico

Today we celebrated the 300th Anniversary of Siri Guru Granth Sahib in our own small and humble way with a Nagar Kirtan and Gurdwara.

Friday night there was a nice event for the kids. After Rehiras everyone had langar together and then the Kids went outside to the Vaisakhi pavillion to hear stories with Mata Guru Meher Kaur. She told a story and then explained about how the light of the Guru was passed on through all the ten Guru’s and then on to the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. The kids were then given glow sticks and little plastic swords ("candles") that had a little light in it. They then walked in a line together to the Gurudwara, bowed before the Guru. It was a fun and cozy night. The kids learned something and they had fun.

I didn’t have my camera for the night event…. but I did take a few pictures from the events today…
