Pune, 8th November 2022: On 8th November 2022, Guru Nanak Jayanti celebrations in Pune were held by the Sadhu Vaswani Mission. Bhajans, Satsang, recorded discourses by Dada J.P. Vaswani and Sadhu Vaswani, and service activities marked the celebrations.


The highlight of the programme included the much-awaited Modi Khana, where devotees make purchases of grains that are distributed among poor and needy families. Modi Khana has been an annual feature at the Sadhu Vaswani Mission in remembrance of the practice done by the Great Sikh Guru – Guru Nanak.


The celebrations of Guru Nanak Jayanti, also known as Guru Purab, commenced with morning prayers. In the afternoon session, devotees gathered from across the city and beyond and joined in the bhajans and kirtans sung in the invocation of Guru Nanak. The chorus of Waheguru, Waheguru echoed aloud at the Satsang Hall of the Mission.


A recorded discourse of revered Dada J.P. Vaswani gave devotees an insight into the divine life of Guru Nanak. In his message, he spoke about the one teaching the Great Guru emphasized – humility. “Everything belongs to the Lord, even the body and soul, so we should not be egoistic but adopt a humble way of life. Guru Nanak was the picture of humility.”



Immediately after the message, the Modi Khana began. Queuing up to make purchases, every devotee awaited their turn and offered their purchase at the feet of the Master. The total proceeds for the Modi Khana amounted to Rs. 2,55,000.


“Through the Modi Khana, we get an opportunity to serve. If we were to look for the poor and needy, it might not be easy and practical. We feel blessed that we are able to reach out to so many at one time,” said Dharmani, an attendee.


“Giving the basket of rations was a very moving and touching experience. It feels good to make someone happy. The thought that someone’s grocery needs would be met through this is overwhelming,” shared Shah from Malaysia.


Following the Modi Khana, the session concluded with a prayer followed by the guru langar – fellowship meals where devotees partook in the cherished prasad.


In the evening session, a recorded discourse of Sadhu Vaswani was broadcast. The day concluded with bhajan and kirtan sessions till midnight.


On this day, groceries and hygiene essentials consisting of sugar (one kg), tea (¼), sooji (one kg), besan (one kg), chole (½ kg), chavli (½ kg), tur dal (one kg), moong dal (one kg), rajma (1/2 kg), matki (1/2 kg), moong (1/2 kg), kala chana (1/2 kg), sabudana (one kg), peanuts (one kg), sevaiya (one packet), bath soap (two), washing soap (two), dishwashing soap (two), coconut oil (one), toothpaste (one), solapuri chaddar (two), blankets (two), mat (one), towels (two), and napkins (two) were distributed to 130 needy families.
