Guru Angad Dev Ji Guru Gaddi Divas Greetings & Best Wishes
Birth: (31 March 1504–28 March 1552) was the second of the ten Sikh Gurus. He was born in the village of Sarae Naga in Muktsar District in Punjab on 31 March 1504. The name Lehna was given shortly after his birth as was the custom of his Hindu parents. He was the son of a small but successful trader named Pheru Mal. His mother’s name was Mata Ramo (also known as Mata Sabhirai, Mansa Devi, and Daya Kaur). Baba Narayan Das Trehan was the Guru’s Grandfather, whose ancestral house was at Matte-di-Sarai near Muktsar.
Community Work: Guru Angad popularized the present form of the Gurmukhi script. It became the medium of writing the Punjabi language in which the hymns of the Gurus are expressed. This step had a far-reaching purpose and impact. First, it gave the people who spoke this language an identity of their own, enabling them to express their thought directly and without any difficulty or transliteration. Earlier, the Punjabi language was written in the Landa or Mahajani script.
Gurgaddi Divas: Guru Nanak Dev Ji selected Bhai Lehna Ji for Guruship due to his devotion and obedience on September 7th, 1539.On liar 17, Hikrami era, 1596 / 1539 A.D. at Kartarpur on the banks of river Ravi. Bhai Lehna Ji was named Guru Angad Dev Ji. Guru Nanak Sahib (the First Nanak, the founder of Sikhism) was born on 20th October 1469 at Rai-Bhoi-di Talwandi in the present district of Shekhupura (Pakistan), now.
