Mool Mantar Asthaan in Sultanpur Lodhi

Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji spent 14 years of his life in Sultanpur Lodhi. It is here that he gave the message of equality, linking it with the preaching of the basic mantra of humanity. The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee is now preparing a huge venue to commemorate the 550th Prakash Purab of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, which will be known as Mool Mantar Asthan.

The construction has been entrusted to Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha UK, in collaboration with Baba Labh Singh Fort Anandgarh Sahib. The Kar Sewa started in October. Once complete, visiting Sangat will get information about the life and teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. This project will be prepared with modern technology and will demonstrate the journeys taken by the first Sikh Guru and his disciples.

The Mool Mantar Asthan will be on four levels spread across an area of 2 acres. The ground floor height will be 26 feet, and the others will be 13 feet. Water will flow in the 13 feet verandah of the complex. Inside the location, water will run in a circle of 20 feet. SGPC Chief Secretary Dr. Roop Singh said that the water released here would be managed from the holy bay. Flowing from here, this water will go back into the bay.

An interactive multimedia center will also be established to provide information about Guru Sahib’s visits. Along with this, work is also being done to spread the teachings of Guru Sahib globally through paintings. The building of the Mool Mantar will have 16 galleries planned to put beautiful lights in the open space until the upper part of the circular building. An elevator will be arranged along with two flights of stairs. An orchard will also be constructed around the building with 13 avenues for access.

The joyous occasion of the birth celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji is a grand event for everyone. Devotees throughout the world are looking forward to this sacred day so that they can pay homage to the founding Guru, who showed the world that all humans are equal, irrespective of their religion or any other criteria. He also practiced eternal love, peace, and brotherhood, all of which are values that Sikhs try to stand by today.
