Nanakshahi Calendar and Gurpurab Dates

Welcome to Nanakshahi.net! The Nanakshahi (Punjabi: ਨਾਨਕਸ਼ਾਹੀ, nānakshāhī) calendar is a tropical solar calendar that is used to determine the dates of Gurpurabs (historical dates of the Gurus) and other historical events and festivals in Sikhi. The calendar is based on the 'Barah Maha' (Punjabi: ਬਾਰਹ ਮਾਹਾ) baanis in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, it translates as the "Twelve Months". There are two Barah Maha’s in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Both compositions compare the changes in nature and the seasons which are conveyed in the twelve-month cycle of the year to the spiritual progression of the soul. In the Nanakshahi calendar, the year begins with the month of Chet, with 1 Chet corresponding to March 14th. Read More…
