How to start celebrating birthday of Guru Nanak on correct date 14th April i.e Visakhi Day: reverse from Katak to visakh ?
1. S Karam Singh Historian in his book ” Katak Ke Visakh” and majority of other scholars have logically proved that date of birth of Guru Nanak is on Visakhi. Original Mool Nanak-shahi Calendar mentioned date of birth as 14th of April i.e Visakhi day after making all adjustments scientifically. As per this calendar birth date will not fluctuate for 9999 years.
2. Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandak Committee Amritsar’s website shows birthday in Visakh but also admit that it is being celebrated in Katak on Pooranmashi day. (Text downloaded from sgpc.net is given below for your ready reference)
“Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
The Bounteous Lord heard the anguished cry and so, Guru Nanak. He sent to this world of woe. ( Bhai Gurdas Ji)
Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji (the First Nanak, the founder of Sikhism) was born on 15th April, 1469 at Rai-Bhoi-di Talwandi in the present distrect of Shekhupura (Pakistan), now Nanakana Sahib. The Birthday of Guru Nanak Sahib is celebrated on 15th Kartik Puranmashi
i.e. full moon day of the month Kartik.”

ਆਸਾ ਸੇਖ ਫਰੀਦ ਜੀਉ ਕੀ ਬਾਣੀ
ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ਦਿਲਹੁ ਮੁਹਬਤਿ ਜਿੰਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਸੇਈ ਸਚਿਆ ।।
ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਮਨਿ ਹੋਰੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਹੋਰੁ ਸਿ ਕਾਂਢੇ ਕਚਿਆ ॥੧॥
This Shabad is relevant to our institutions who are ignoring the facts.
<b>Way out :</b>
Ignorance is the root cause of our problems and their solution lies in knowledge.
(srigranth.org 1372 )
ਕਬੀਰਾ ਜਹਾ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਤਹ ਧਰਮੁ ਹੈ ਜਹਾ ਝੂਠੁ ਤਹ ਪਾਪੁ ॥
ਜਹਾ ਲੋਭੁ ਤਹ ਕਾਲੁ ਹੈ ਜਹਾ ਖਿਮਾ ਤਹ ਆਪਿ ॥੧੫੫॥
* So first of all, we should educate the masses about facts. As proposed by S Gulbarg Singh Ji in webinar, whenever we receive a message about incorrect Gurpurab dates, respond to the sender with correct date from Mool Nanak-shahi Calendar.
As proposed by S Gurpreet Singh GP, small vedio clips should be used on our social media platforms about Gurpurabs as per Mool Nanak-shahi Calendar.
* Strengthening of our institution of <b>Akal Takhat Saheb </b>is very important for creating a rectified uniform code of conduct based upon the teachings of Guru Granth Saheb for Guru-panth and its global implementation. We are to find out ways and means how to select representatives from each country/ city/ village/ state to accomplish the task. Just as in a democratic system, after parliament legislate to form an act, then rules are drafted to implement that act. Guru Granth Saheb is our act. It is Guru-panth who is to draft the rules (code of conduct) based on the teachings of Guru Granth Saheb. I humbly request the GSC Scholars to consider this point.
