Happy #Vaisakhi, commemorating the birth of the #Khalsa:

By the advent of Guru Gobind Singh, the masses in the field were flocking to align themselves with this community whose leaders were sacrificing their lives to resist and destroy the power of slave-masters.
After 500 years of Shabad history developed by the Bhagats & the Gurus, formation of the Adi Granth & construction of Harmandir Sahib & Akal Takht, the next stage in the struggle to secure human dignity was to establish national status for the participants in the Sikh Revolution.
Guru Gobind Singh did this by uniting Panth and Granth in a body called the Khalsa (sovereign) which could enrich the world at large.

It's a NEW MOON tonight.
In next 2 days Hindus across India will celebrate their #NewYear--
#Vaisakhi in North,
#Vishu in Kerala &
#Puthandu in TN.
A very auspicious time of the yr.🙏
In Kerala, day starts with VISHU KANNI-- auspicious items are laid out around Shri Krishna.
Auspicious items include everything YELLOW (be it fruits, Peetambar-Krishna, or new set of clothes), this so bcoz yellow represents PROSPERITY.
An imp item of KANNI is MIRROR which is kept in d center-- reminding us that:
"I alone can change my destiny".
This festival is based on SOLAR calendar though this yr d festival falls right next to a new moon. So it becomes an even more auspicious time to manifest our wishes.
Sun represents our soul, and moon our emotions.
