AMRITSAR: The 415th `Parkash Purab’, the first installation of Guru Granth Sahib at Golden Temple, was today celebrated with religious fervor and devotion at historic Khalsa College campus. During the occasion the message of humanity, peace and universal brotherhood as enshrined in the holy scripture was highlighted as the Kirtan (recitals of hymns) was organized at the Gurdwara complex where the management members, principals, teachers, staff members and students took part in large number.

 

Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) honourary secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina said in his messages said that Guru Granth Sahib’s philosophy is most relevant today when the world is divided on caste creed and nationality basis. He said in the trouble-torn, highly stressed times, the humanity is taking the back seat which is detrimental to the very existence of the man kind.

 

 

“We all need to imbibe the teaching of the Adi Granth on peaceful co-existence and the welfare of the mankind”, said he adding that he was happy that teachers and students were taking part in the religious programs with dedication. Dr. Inderjit Singh Gagoani narrated the historical aspects relating the compilation of the Granth which incorporates the Bani (Hymns) from Gurus and Saints from across the religion, communities and region.

 

Chhina along with Principal Dr. Mehal Singh bestowed the Siropa on students from Khalsa College of Pharmacy who performed the kirtan, invoking the blessings from almighty.
