ArtofPunjab Releases New Painting by Kanwar Singh

Happy Gurpurab,

Today we celebrate the Prakash Utsav (Birth Anniversary) of Guru Nanak Dev ji. I worked on this painting which I have titled 'The Abode of Nanak' to reflect on where we find Guru Nanak in our daily lives. When we bow before the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, we also bow before Guru Nanak and the legacy he imparted to us. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the embodiment of the spiritual revolution which was first ignited by Guru Nanak dev ji and the life breath of eight more Nanaks nurtured and fed this flame. Then in 1699 Guru Gobind Singh ji, the tenth Sikh Guru, transformed that flame into a wildfire of spiritual liberation through the creation of the Khalsa panth.

In 1708, Guru Gobind Singh, having consciously witnessed the sacrifice of the lives of all his four sons, handed over the legacy to the Guruship of the Shabad Guru, embodied in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. He understood that the age of lineage was over, and so he consciously left no heirs. The unique beauty of this is that the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, our present Guru, can neither be altered nor changed in any way. It is a touchstone for all humanity that exists beyond the limitations of time and space, now and in the future. We look to Siri Guru Granth Sahib as our guide to connect with the One internally, see the One in all and fight inequality and injustice in every sphere of our lives as the Gurus themselves did. The image of Harimandir Sahib reflects the other half of the spiritual revolution because it represents the innumerable gurudwaras and abodes of Nanak which we create to enable the sadh sangat to come together, remember Guru Nanak's message and carry on his revolution.
