Guru Nanak Sadbhawna Yatra

(Traveled 40000 miles by road with message of Love Humanity & Environment protection)

To celebrate 550th Parkash (Birth) anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, NIFAA organized Guru Nanak Sadbhawna Yatra in four phases on the routes travelled by Guru Nanak Dev ji in his life time to spread his message of harmony, peace and goodwill amongst all humans. Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the great social reformer and humanitarian travelled more than 40000 miles during his four Udasis in all four directions. At all places he was adorned with different names given to him out of love. In Sri Lanka people called him Nanak Chariya, in Tibet Nanak Lama, in Sikkim Guru Ripochia, in Russia Nanak Kdamdar, in Iraq Nanak Pir, in Nepal Nanak Rishi, in China Baba Phusa, in Egypt Nanak Wali and in Saudi Arabia Wali Rind. All this shows universal acceptance of his message of one God, human equality and brotherhood.

Yatra was started from the birth place of Guru Nanak Dev ji in Nankana Sahib, Pakistan and traveled on his foot prints through Pakistan & upper part of India including Jammu & Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh. In the second & third phase Pritpal Singh Pannu & his team covered the other travel routes of Guru Nanak Dev Ji in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Apart from giving his message of peace, harmony and goodwill, they planted 55000 saplings at 100 important places throughout the routes covered by and put soil of Nankana Sahib in each plant. In return they also collected soil from all places of travel and & distributed it to thousands of devotees with a condition that everyone will plant one sapling at home and put this soil in that plant & protect it forever. The team was specially invited by Sony TV in famous Kapil Sharma Show to tell the world their story of this great humanitarian campaign.
