Sri Guru Nanak Devi Ji 550th Birthday Celebrations
About this Event
Arizona Sikh Gurdwara is celebrating 550th Birthday of Sri Guru Nanak Devi Ji from November 15 - November 17, 2019. Sri Akhand Paath will begin on Friday, November 15th and Bhog ceremony will occur on the morning of Sunday, November 17th followed by Kirtan by Bhai Gyan Singh Ji Jatha. Just like every year, Immediately after the Ardaas, we will start with Nagar Kirtan approximately around 1:30 pm. Please join us for this auspicious occasion that will happen only once in your lifetime. Bring your family, relatives and friends for maximum participation. The success of this Gurpurab depends only on your humble participation.
Also, we like to thank you for your support for Arizona Sikh Gurdwara in the past whenever we needed any help. Our langar hall was in a very poor state. We are now building a new langar hall at the Gurdwara and also renovating the main building (images of the project are attached). The construction has already started. This Langar Hall will be dedicated to Guru Nanak Dev JI and will be named as Guru Nanak Dev Ji Langar Hall. The total cost of the project is over $300,000. We need your help once again to finish the project. This is a community project and we need the support of the whole community once again.
The Gurdwara has been self supporting for many years and we did not have to ask for any donations for a long time. Now that our project budget is lot higher than the available funds, we are requesting your generous donations. We are requesting each family to contribute only one dollar a year at least for our Guru who gave us everything, on His 550th birthday. We would however appreciate if you can contribute $1000, $2000, $5000 or whatever you feel like for this noble community cause for building of Guru Nanak Dev Ji langar hall. Arizona Sikh Gurdwara is a Tax-exempt 501 C3 charitable organization and a receipt for your donation will be provided to you for your tax purposes. The checks should be written to Arizona Sikh Gurdwara and can be mailed to Arizona Sikh Gurdwara, 1129 East Sheridan Street, Phoenix AZ 85006. Receipt for your donation will be mailed to you promptly.
