The three-day birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Gobind Singh, founder of Khalsa Panth, concluded on Tuesday with Sikhs celebrating it with religious fervour, gaiety and devotion.

A large number of Sikh devotees participated in the ‘Vishaal Deewan’ (mass congregation) at the Central Gurdwara Saheb in Gowliguda.

The congregation began at 11 a.m. on Tuesday continued up to 4.30 p.m. and was marked by the recitations of Gurubani Keertans and Kathas (Holy Hymns) by religious preachers.

Bhai Balpreet Singh, Mata Vipinpreet Kaur, Bhai Hari Singh, Bhai Jagbeer Singh and other Ragi Jathas who were specially invited from various parts of the country  recited Gurbani Keertans and delivered Gurbani Vichar which lays stress on imbibing moral values and communal harmony. They also threw light on the teachings of Sikh Gurus who stood for national integration, peace, brotherhood and communal harmony.

After the culmination of the congregation, the traditional Guru-ka-Langar (free community kitchen) was served to all the devotees.
