@MVenkaiahNaidu – Vice President of India

  • Guru Nanak Dev insisted that one should earn one’s living by hard work. Work, worship and share (kirt karo, Nam japo and wand chhako) was the motto he placed before his disciples. Earn by honest labour and share the earnings with the needy.
  • It is worth noting that Guru Nanakji initiated inter-faith dialogue way back in the 16th century AD and had conversations with most of the religious denominations of his times.
  • The world needs such spiritual leaders, who can engage in a meaningful dialogue to exchange ideas in order to promote peace, stability and cooperation. Guru Nanak’s vision was pragmatic and holistic. It was not a vision of renunciation but of active involvement.punjab assembly.jpe

Dr Manmohan Singh – Former PM :

  • We are lucky that we are getting to celebrate some important historical events. 300 years of Guru Gobind Singh ji in 1966 and 500 years of Guru Nanak Dev ji in 1969 were celebrated with much fervour across nations.
  • Now we have gathered to celebrate the 550 birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev ji. 500 years ago, Guru Nanak Dev ji laid the foundation for a point of view on the repeated questions regarding God, religion, life, truth et al.
  • By establishing Kartarpur Sahib, Guru Nanak Dev ji laid the foundation for an ideal society
  • Punjab is Guru Nanak Dev ji’s karam-bhoomi. How will we keep Guru Nanak Dev ji’s legacy alive if its youth is wasted with drugs, water is becoming poisonous & women are being disrespected. It’s the most crucial question on his 550th birth anniversary
