Bandi Chhor Divas and Happy Diwali 2022 Greetings and Wishing Images
The festival of Diwali is also celebrated by Sikhs. The Sikhs believe in one god and do not worship the Hindu gods. Their religious teachers are holy men called gurus. Sikhs celebrate Diwali because of events that took place during the life of the 6th Sikh Guru, Hargobind Sahib.
The Muslim emperor, Jahangir, who ruled India from 1605–27, did not like the Sikhs or the Hindus. He decided to imprison the 6th Sikh Guru and 52 Hindu kings in his fortress. Many people begged the emperor to release the guru and eventually, the emperor agreed. However, the guru refused to be released unless the Hindu kings were also freed. The emperor reluctantly agreed to this and the guru and the Hindu kings were all freed at Diwali.
The Sikhs were overjoyed when their leader was released and lit candles and lamps on the roofs of houses to guide him home to Amritsar in Punjab. The Guru’s mother was so pleased to see him, she ordered sweets and food to be given out to everybody. Sikh Diwali celebrations recall these events. Sikh Diwali is a three-day festival. The place for Sikhs to be during Diwali is the Golden Temple at Amritsar, which is lit with tiny rows of lights, and candles float in the lake. Sikhs who are unable to go to Amritsar at Diwali will have a model of the temple in their home, which is surrounded by candles.
