The tenth and last guru of Sikhs was born in Patna on December 22, 1666, Bihar in the Sodhi Khatri family. His birth anniversary, also known as Prakash Parv, is observed every year according to Nanakshahi calendar between the months of December and January. On this day, devotees from all around the world send best wishes to one another and vow to follow the teachings and the path of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Guru Gobind Singh Ji, born as Gobind Rai, was the tenth Sikh Guru, a spiritual leader, warrior, poet and philosopher.
There are controversies among Sikhs surrounding the date and hence the day to mark the Jayanti is now decided each year. In 2022 this will be the 9th of January.
