Vaisakhi – Piety and Celebration

Vaisakhi is one of the most significant holidays for Sikhs. It commemorates the establishment of the Khalsa at Anandpur Sahib in 1699, by the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. It falls on the first day of the Baisakh month in the solar Nanakshahi calendar, which corresponds to April 14 in the Gregorian calendar. It is also an ancient harvest festival in the Punjab region, which also marks a beginning of a new solar year, and new harvest season.

Happy Baisakhi to All

Dhand dee laa ke chadar,
Phullan nu jadd khid khid hasee aandee hai,
us wailey hee bas Baisakhi aandee hai.

Badla nu chumdee,
hawaa ich jhooldee sunhari fasal jad,
jatt nu bulaandee hai,
us wailey hee bas Baisakhi aandee hai.

Bhangde te gidde di toli rall ke
jadd pind ich tamalaa paundi hai,
us wailey hee bas Baisakhi aandee hai.

Mere Punjab di mitti jad wee
menu wajaa maar bulandi hai,
har din mere dil ich ik navi Baisakhi aandhi hai!!!
