I am actually appalled that you all have associated Diwali to be a pure hindu festival which sikh's celebrate for the heck of it. It seems that you all don't know that us Sikhs also have a reason to celebrate diwali and that is the release of our sixth guru, Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib ji who was captured by the mughal emperor Jahangir and it was on the day of diwali that Guru Ji was released and in this joy his mother had distributed sweets and the Golden Temple was illuminated with lights and diva's to celebrate the return of our Guru. In sikhism diwali is called Bandi Chhorh Diwas.
Also, please all muslims-hindus-sikhs need to stop fighting all our religions preach that GOD IS ONE then how can you all fight with eachother based on religion? I ask you all you muslims-hindus-sikhs this that when you die will you be questioned by 20 gods? Do each of us have our own god waiting up in heaven who will question us? NO you idiots we will all be facing ONE GOD when you all die and go to god you will not be a hindu, muslim or sikh you will only be a human and that is why god will question you on is your humanity!!!
Guru Nanak Dev ji said- "there is no hindu no musalman, we are all human and there is only ONE GOD"
please get that through your heads and stop fighting!!
Q. When we celebrate BANDI CHHOD DIVAS???
A. On the NIGHT of Diwali and Diwali = the night of Amavasya (No moon). Hence we depend on Amavasya not any perticular DATE that we follow evey year to celebrate BANDI CHHOD DIVAS.

Q. Why don't we celebrate BANDI CHHOD DIVAS in day?
A. Because Diwali is celebrated in Night. LOL

bandi chhod divas is an excuse that sikh give when he caught celebrating DIWALI LOL

I have already explained the above point. The day of bandi chhod divas is fixed in lunar calendar but it fluctuate from year to year in gregorian calendar. At the time of gurus, there was no gregorian calendar. Bandi chhor divas is celebrated on amavas day simply because guruji along with 52 rajas were released on amavas day. If your birthday is on 20th june then its very obvious that you will celebrate it on 20th june and not on any other day. Similarly bandi chhod divas is celebrated on amavas. Its as simple as that.

So NOW you agree we depend on Amavas....for any reason. So in sikhi position of moon is having some importance.

pathani putr, pathans have been used as donkey labour for 100 years, because you people are easy to control all you need is a stick and a carrot to keep you busy. Everyday in porkistan you people are kicked up the ass by punjabi muslims like the dogs you are, by the way your just a bunch of converted slaves like all other pusslims from the south asia.

Who said that Diwali is a HIndu festival?it's not.. wow I never knew so many Sikhs here don't even know their own history.

Diwali for Sikhs is known as Bandi Chor Divas - research it!
On this day the Guru returned back home and the Sikhs lit divay at Harmandar Sahib because he has helped rescue those men in imprisoned. It is not a Hindu festival. Hindus celebrate Diwali for a totally different reason, and Sikhs for a different one.

And as for Holi, Sikhs call it Hola Mohalla, and it's for the same reason but on different days. You guys should really learn more Sikhi.

Sikhs are not supposed to observe Karva Chauth, that is a purely Hindu thing. Also, Rakhsha Bandhan is called Rakhri, and it's that is nothing religious.

The main one for Sikhs which holds high reverence are days of Gurpurab. I think you guys need to stop blending in HIndu beliefs with Sikhs. We are a totally different religion, although we are tolerant of other faiths, we are still different.

I am not against any religion on here, so please don't take me wrongly. And for those people insulting others religions, thats really wrong because we are all in the end human beings and should respect others way of living. Live and let live.

DEAR ALL READ PROPERLY THEN RPLY
DONT THROUGH ANY THINGS , SIKH IS HAVING OWN SPECIFICATION ,BCOZ IM PROUD TO BE SIKH.
THINK BEFORE YOU WRITE The Third Sikh Teacher, Guru Amar Das institutionalized this as one of the special days when all Sikhs would gather to receive the Gurus blessings at Goindwal. In 1577 the foundation stone of The Golden Temple was laid on Diwali. The Diwali festival took place during the life of the sixth Sikh Guru Hargobind Sahib. The Muslim Emperor Jahengir, imprisoned the Guru and 52 Kings.The Emperor ruled India at this time. The Asian Indians begged the Emperor to release the Guru and the Emperor agreed but the Gurus said also release the kings. Guru ji had a gown made with 52 string pieces for the Hindus to hold. The Guru and the Hindu kings were also freed at Diwali, Sikhs were very happy when their leader was released. Guru Hargobind Sahib went to the Golden Temple Amritsar in the Punjab. Sikh Diwali is recalled throughout India and in many countries; each year to remember Guru ji's release. At Diwali we worship the religious freedom for Sikhs and this is why Diwali is called the Light Festival. As Guru's Mother was full of happiness that her son was released she ordered food and sweets and gave them to everyone. The worshippers float multi-coloured light candles on the water at the Golden Temple. The gurdwara, hold a grand fireworks display.

How to Celebrate Bandi Chhorh Diwas / Diwali

Guru Hargobind Ji was released in 1619 AD from the Gwalior fort and He also helped other 52 rajas to be freed from the life imprisonment. The celebrations were held when he arrived at Amritsar.

Question is that why do we celebrate the day many hundred years after ?
Do we understand ?

Probably NOT. An attempt has been made to answer the above questions as follows :

Purpose of the Celebrations is to remember Guru Ji and pray for one's own release from the imprisonment like 52 rajas. One might think that he/she is not in prison and is free to do whatever ...

One might be wrong here. Most people are constantly being forced into the PRISON of pride, rat race, show off, peer pressure and one may go to the extent of turning morals against what Gurus have laid down (smoking, using intoxicants, adultery, removing hair and so on .....). Most of us are prisoners of the culture & society.

Objective of the celebration is to pray for our liberation from the worldly bonds and act upon Guru's path of truthfulness to avail human life time (i.e. to be one with Waheguru / Lord). Rather than lighting a deeva of clay, oil & wick, one should light the mind with the divine knowledge contained in Gurbani.

Therefore, lighting a deeva in true sense is acquiring Divine knowledge & virtues (being kind, humble, meek, tolerant, selfless, sweet spoken .....) that leads one to become one with Waheguru / God.

Gurbani advises us which deeva to light and where in the following shabad ;

Aasaa Mahalaa 1, Deevaa meraa ek naam dukh vich paayeyaa t'ail || un chaanan oh sokheyaa chookaa jum seon mail ||

which means that God's Name (divine devotion) is my lamp (to be lighted in the mind); I have put the oil of suffering (ego, jealousy, anger, lust, greed) into it. Its flame has dried up this oil, and I have escaped meeting with the Messenger of Death i.e. attained union with Waheguru.(Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Page 35

May our prayers be listened and Waheguru grant us freedom, like the 52 rajas, from the worldly bonds (ego, lust, anger, greed, jealousy, hatred and peer pressure etc.).

Awip mukqu mukqu krY sMswru ] nwnk iqsu jn kau sdw nmskwru.

meaning that He (Guru) who Himself is liberated, liberates the universe (i.e. "Bandi Chhorh"). Nanak says, I bow (to the Guru) in reverence forever (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Page 295).

Dhan Dhan (Great) Sri Guru Hargobind Ji
