Dogs are no doubt the most sensible and loving animals on the face of this earth. We believe they feel the same emotions like us and often react to them the same way. A few videos of a dog sitting in a gurudwara, listening to kirtan peacefully has just reaffirmed our faith.
The Sikh community across the world celebrated Guru Nanak Jayanti on the 12th this month. The day this year was even more special as it was the 550thbirth anniversary of the founder of Sikhism. Kirtans were conducted in Gurudwara’s across the world and prayers were held to celebrate the auspicious day. Among all the people who celebrated Gurpurab seeking blessings from the almighty was this stray doggo.
