Carrying forward the practice, devotees at the Mission, make a symbolic purchase of groceries and hygiene items which are then donated to poor and needy families.
The sacred day of Guru Purab began with a satsang featuring bhajans and kirtans sung in remembrance and reverence of the Great Sikh Guru – Guru Nanak. Devotees invoked the Great Guru with a chorus of “Satnam, Waheguru”.
The session also marked a recorded discourse of Rev. Dada J.P. Vaswani.
Following Dada’s discourse, the Modi Khana at the Mission was opened to devotees. Devotees, maintaining Covid-19 protocols, queued up to make their purchases and offered the groceries at the pedestal of the Masters. Total proceeds for the Modi Khana amounted to Rs. 1,60,000
“Being a part of the Modi Khana brings a sense of satisfaction and contentment. In reality, we are only instruments, even this service is done through us, not by us,” said Dimple Wadhwani.
