Lucknow: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the historic Yahiyaganj Gurdwara to pay obeisance to Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru, on his 355th birth anniversary on Wednesday and seek blessings. The CM said people should take inspiration from Sikhs Gurus for being selfless and devoted in service.
“Sikh Gurus did not live for themselves. Their lives were dedicated to their religion and the country. Guru Gobind Singhji first encouraged his father to serve the country and then sacrificed his four sons for the country. One cannot expect such devotion from a common man,” he said.
“The sacrifice of Sikh community for the betterment of humanity will always be remembered,” Yogi added.
The CM knelt down and bowed before the holy Guru Granth Sahib in the gurdwara and heard the Shabad Kirtan sung by Ragi Bhai Davinder Singh from the Golden temple in Amritsar.
The CM was also presented the Baba Deep Singh award on the occasion.
He said that Covid-19 presented an obstacle in festivities, but the government was keen for a solution. “Mayor Sanyukta Bhatia came to me and asked how to go about celebrations in the city. I told her we will find a way and we did,” Yogi said.
“Guru Gobind Singh ji and his mother Gujri Ji had spent two months and 13 days at this very place when the Guru was six years old. This single event has made this Gurdwara even more important than it already is,” he added.
“The first time I visited Patna, I went to see Patna Sahib. All Indians should go there and experience the magic and aura of the Guru in his service to the country in that era,” the CM said.
Yogi was accompanied by deputy CM Dinesh Sharma, cabinet ministers Brijesh Pathak and Ashutosh Tandon and the city mayor.
CM Yogi had first visited Yahiyaganj Gurdwara soon after he took over as the chief minister of the state in 2017, on Baisakhi day.
“All through the day, the shabad kirtan of the Guru was rendered by Golden temple’s Ragi Bhai Davinder Singh in his soulful voice while Gyani Angrez Singh highlighted the life story of the Guru,” said Gurdwara general secretary Mamohan Singh Happy.
