Vaisakhi Festival also pronounced as Baisakhi marks one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar.

It is celebrated as the beginning of the Punjabi New Year as well as to celebrate the year 1699 when Sikhism was born as a collective faith and a religion.

Before gathering its significance as a Sikh religious festival, Vaisakhi has always been celebrated as a harvest festival in Punjab, an area of Northern India.

In 1699, Guru Gobind Singh on the day of Baisakhi established the Khalsa, the collective name given to every Sikh who has been baptized.

He came out of a tent carrying a sword on the day to take any Sikh who was willing to sacrifice his life for the faith.

A few men disappeared into the tent and after a while, the Guru came out of the tent with a bloody sword which worried the crowd.

This was followed by five men coming out of the tent unharmed and wearing turbans on their heads.

These five men became known as Panj Piare (Beloved Five) and became the first five members of the Khalsa.

They were baptized by Guru Gobind Singh by sprinkling holy water on them and reciting holy prayers.

There are also special processions and parades which take place in the religious faith called ‘Nagar Kirtans’.

‘Nagar’ means town and ‘Kirtan’ stands for the singing of hymns found in the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of Sikhs which is also carried in the procession.

The celebrations on the day include activities such as singing, reading aloud the scriptures, and chanting hymns.


Why do we Celebrate Vaisakhi?

Vaisakhi Chauth is celebrated as a remembrance of the foundation of Sikhism.

A Sikh leader, Guru Tez  Bahadur was killed because he refused to convert to Islam under the orders of a Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

This triggered the formation of the order of Sikhism and the final formation of the Khalsa brotherhood.

Therefore, Vaisakhi now is celebrated to remember the auspicious day and celebrate the formation of Khalsa and the integrity of Sikhism. At the same time, many Hindus also celebrate it as a harvest festival.


Significance of Baisakhi in Sikhism

Baisakhi is of major importance for the people following the Sikh faith.

As it was on Baisakhi Day, in the year 1699 the Tenth Guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh founded Khalsa Panth or the Order of Pure Ones and gave a unique identity to Sikhs.

On the same day, the guru administered Amrit (nectar) to his first batch of five disciples making them Singh.

a martial community. By doing so, he eliminated the differences between high and low and established that all human beings were equal.

Sikhs celebrate Baisakhi by participating in special prayer meetings organized at gurdwaras.

They also carry out joyful Baisakhi processions to mark the day.

Significance of Baisakhi in Other Religions

The day of Baisakhi is of significance for the Hindus as it was on this day in 1875

Swami Dayanand Saraswati founded the Arya Samaj – a reformed sect of Hindus who are devoted to the Vedas for spiritual guidance and have discarded idol worship.

Besides, Baisakhi day is of relevance for the Buddhists as Gautama Buddha attained enlightenment and Nirvana on this auspicious day.
