Correct Answer - Option 2 : Kartik

The correct answer is Kartik.

  • In the Sikh tradition, a Gur Purab is a celebration of the anniversary of the birth of a guru, marked by a festival.
  • The word Gur Purab first appeared in the days of the gurus. 
  • It is a compound of the word Purab (or Parva in Sanskrit), with the word guru, indicating a festival or celebration. 
  • According to the controversial Bhai Bala Janamsakhi, Guru Nanak was born on the Full Moon (Pooranmashi) of the Kartik Indian Lunar Month.  
  • For this reason, the Sikhs celebrated Guru Nanak's Gurpurab around November and it was introduced into Sikh rituals.
  • For all Sikhs, the festival is normally similar; only the hymns are distinct.
  • The festivities typically start with Prabhat Pheris.
  • Prabhat Pheris are early morning processions that begin singing hymns at the Gurudwaras and continue across the cities.
