The 348th Prakash Purab (birth anniversary) celebrations of Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th and last Sikh Guru and founder of Khalsa Panth, concluded on Sunday with thousands of Sikhs and people from other faiths participating in a Vishaal Deewan (mass congregation) here.

Main Granthi (priest) of Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple), Amritsar, Giani S Jaswinder Singh delivered a sermon at the congregation, organised by the Prabhandak Committee of Gurudwara Saheb, Secunderabad, at Key’s High School. Devotees offered prayers to Guru Granth Sahib on the occasion.

The programmes, which began in the morning, continued up to 4 pm. They included recitation of Gurubani Keertans and Kathas (holy hymns) by the renowned Ragi Jathas (Sikh preachers).

Apart from Giani Jaswinder Singh, Bhai Balwinder Singh Rangila of Chandigarh, Bibi Jaskiran Kaur of Ludhiana and other Ragi Jathas were specially  invited from various parts of the country for the occasion.

They recited Gurbani Keertans and delivered Kathas that stressed on higher values in life and communal harmony, for which Guru Gobind Singh strived.

They exhorted the gathering to follow the teachings of Guru Gobind Singh, which are relevant to this day, according to Prabhandak Committee President S Baldev Singh Bagga.

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