10 Ways to Celebrate Guru Nanak Dev Ji

During his lifetime Guru Nanak Dev Ji traveled thousands of miles to be with people where they lived and worked. He visited homes, he visited villages, he visited cities. He brought people together and he sang to them, taught them, fed them and blessed them.

Just as Guru Nanak Dev Ji traveled to be with people over 500 years ago, so SikhNet travels around the world today carrying Guru Nanak’s message to nearly eight million souls.

At SikhNet, our job is to continue to reach as many people, and create as many touch points as possible, to help Guru Ji to reach out and touch every heart. We work as a team here at SikhNet, and you can be a part of our team. It’s our Seva and our Dasvandh that allow this miracle to happen.
