"Guru Nanak Dev Ji's universal message of love, compassion, equality, peace and brotherhood is not restricted to a particular caste, colour, creed, religion or region, but transcends the barriers of time and space, thus making it relevant till eternity", Singh said.

According to the lunar calendar, Guru Nanak's birthday is celebrated on full moon day of Kartik month or Kartik Poornima. Guru Nanak was the first of the 10 Sikh Gurus and was born in 1469. Not only Guru Nanak Dev Ji is a first Guru of Sikh but also founder of Sikh religion in India.

The pilgrims will mark Guru Nanak's 548th birth anniversary on Saturday (November 4) at Nankana Sahib, his birthplace, in Pakistan's Punjab province.

Tight security arrangements were made around all leading Sikh shrines in Punjab.

Guru Nanak Jayanti or Gurpurab is one of the holiest festivals celebrated by the Sikh community across the world.

In an over one-minute long video message, the prime minister shared his thoughts on the Sikh Guru and urged all to imbibe his teachings.

It was reported by the media sources that the sangat will visit Gurdwara Panja Sahib (Hassan Abdal), Gurdwara Dehra Sahib (Lahore), Gurdwara Rori Sahib (Eminabad) and Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib (Narowal), before returning on November 11. Special community lunch, called the langar, are also organized at the gurdwaras.

Programmes were being organised at Guru Nanak National High School by Gurudwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Fancy Bazar and Sikh Sangat of Greater Guwahati since Thursday.
