Today’s Holiday: Birthday of Guru Har Krishan

Today’s Holiday:
Birthday of Guru Har Krishan

Har Krishan (1656-64) was the eighth of the ten Sikh gurus or prophets on whose teaching the religion is based. He is often referred to as the “Child Guru” because he was only five years old when he succeeded his father, Guru Har Rai, who died in 1661. Har Krishan himself died of smallpox at the age of eight, so he remained a child throughout his brief time as guru. The anniversary of his birth is celebrated by Sikhs around the world with special services in the gurdwaras (houses of worship) and with readings from the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh scriptures.
