3RD ANNUAL SHRI GURU RAVIDASS JI NAGAR KIRTAN PARADE



SHRI GURU RAVI DASS SABHA, VANCOUVER CELEBRATED SHRI GURU RAVI DASS JI’S 633RD GURPURAB ON APRIL 04
Above all images taken & sent by Mr. Tejpal Gangar from Canada

PRESS RELEASE

Last Saturday, over 7,000 people participated in the 3rd Annual Shri Guru Ravidass Ji Nagar Kirtan Parade in Burnaby. After the long weekend was kicked off by a windy storm, some believe that it must have been divine intervention to witness a glorious sunny day for the Nagar Kirtan parade. The largest Nagar Kirtan parade in Burnaby’s history was marshalled by nine individuals carrying nine special symbolic flags which included: Canada, India, BC, Burnaby and five honouring Shri Guru Ravidass Ji.

The Nagar Kirtan parade of followers and bystanders was a visual delight of traditional Indian attire with ladies glittering in bright colours marking the joyous occasion. The atmosphere was highlighted with smiling faces; float riders waving, loud broadcasts, singing of holy hymns, and welcoming glances to people from all communities. “Our Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha (Vancouver) Management Committee took it as a personal mission to make this the biggest and best Nagar Kirtan Parade in our temple’s history. Being the first ever Canadian born president in my temple’s history; it warmed my heart to see all communities join us and I hope we can see thousands of more people come out in years to come to support this festive occasion,” says Micheal Ghirra, President, Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha (Vancouver).

No matter where you come from, what religion you practice or what you believe in, there is something amazing about a Nagar Kirtan parade. Participants were treated to a sumptuous vegetarian feast which was welcomed by all in the community with open arms. Usually an event of this magnitude would draw a lot of litter, but not in this case. Burnaby city officials believe this was one of the cleanliest parades in the City of Burnaby’s history. “Thanks to all the participants, organizers and Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha (Vancouver) Management Committee who made this annual event a great success; all of our hard work and dedication paid off when we were able to see the thousands of smiling faces in the crowd,” says Micheal Ghirra, President, Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha (Vancouver).

Special thanks to all the politicians and local dignitaries who walked with the Nagar Kirtan procession. The weekend of events Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha (Vancouver) concluded with a bhog ceremony that was attended by over 2000 people at the akhand path on Sunday. Record crowds are expected in Vancouver and Surrey for their Nagar Kirtans coming up in the next few weeks.

Legacy of Guru Ravi Dass…on Gurpurb (Birthday), 30th January, 2010
By: Pardeep Singh Attri
Chaudan saai tetees ki magh sudi pandras, Dukhion ke kalyan hit pargte Guru Ravidas.

As per this couplet Guru Ravidas was born on 15th of Magh Saudi, full-moon day of 1433 at Seer Govardhan-pur (Kanshi-Banaras). His father’s name was Santokh Das and mother’s name was Kalsa Devi. Mata Loona was the wife of Guru Ravidas, she was humble and she extended her full support to her husband in his mission. At the time of Guru Ravidas, ‘varna vivstha’/caste system, unsociability, untouchability was prevalent and Dalits/untouchables were suffering the most. With the passage of time it had become stricter and cruel also socio-religious system of India had been crippled. In such environment Guru Ravidas emerged as a formidable adversary of socio-religious infirmities and stood for truthfulness. He openly denounced all Brahmanic-scriptures including their Vedas, Purans, Smritis, and Upanishads etc. Guru Ravidas said: Charon ved kiya khandoti, jan Ravidas kare dandoti. (I Ravidas proclaim all vedas are worthless,) Read at: http://blog.insightyv.com/?p=1184, http://www.dalit.eu/legacy-of-guru-ravidas/

Almighty God blessed the people of this planet the day Guru Ravidass Ji came to this world over six hundred years ago. It was during the time when social and religious pattern of the society was very distressing; the world was suffering from manmade discriminations based on caste, color, creed and fanaticism. Guru Ji teachings led to mass awakening and brought a new era of hope, strength and freedom to the downtrodden and depressed classes of Indian Society. He dreamt of “BEGAMPURA” where worries anguish and worldly cares would not torment any one. Guru Ji gave his simple message of universal love, peace and social justice for all. Our true tribute to Satguru Ravidass is to adopt and follow his sacred philosophy, preaching and make them a part of our lives.
