Indian PM Offers Prayers, Serves Langar at Patna Sahib Gurdwara

by Antariksh Singh

In a heartfelt display of solidarity and service, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to the revered Harimandir Ji, Patna Sahib Gurdwara, immersing himself in ‘seva’ alongside devotees. The images and videos capturing PM Modi’s humility and dedication have swiftly traversed the digital realm, resonating deeply with audiences across the nation.

A viral video encapsulates the essence of this gesture, portraying Prime Minister Modi actively participating in the langar, serving food to the Sikh community with utmost humility. Clad in simplicity, PM Modi is seen personally attending to the devotees, offering sustenance from a steel bucket, while receiving their heartfelt expressions of gratitude in return.

Moreover, PM Modi extended his support to the Gurdwara’s management, lending a hand in the preparation of food for the langar. This act not only exemplifies his commitment to service but also underscores the spirit of communal harmony and unity that lies at the core of India’s diverse tapestry.

The visit was orchestrated under meticulous security arrangements, ensuring the safety and smooth conduct of PM Modi’s pilgrimage to this renowned sanctuary nestled in the heart of Bihar’s Patna.

Takhat Sri Patna Sahib, affectionately known as Takhat Sri Harimandir Ji, Patna Sahib, stands as a testament to the rich tapestry of Sikh heritage. Amongst the five takhats revered by Sikhs, this sacred abode holds profound significance, tracing its origins back to the 18th century under the patronage of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

The genesis of Patna Sahib Gurdwara is deeply intertwined with the life and legacy of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru. Born in Patna in 1666, Guru Gobind Singh spent his formative years in this historical city before journeying to Anandpur Sahib. Maharaja Ranjit Singh, recognizing the sanctity of this birthplace, commissioned the construction of the Gurdwara, ensuring that the legacy of Guru Gobind Singh thrives for generations to come.

As the Prime Minister’s footsteps echo through the corridors of this hallowed sanctuary, his gesture echoes the ethos of service and inclusivity championed by Guru Gobind Singh. Beyond the realm of politics, it is a poignant reminder of the enduring bond between leaders and the communities they serveā€”a bond woven with threads of empathy, compassion, and shared humanity.

In a world often besieged by discord, the scenes unfolding at Patna Sahib Gurdwara serve as a beacon of hope, reaffirming the transformative power of service and solidarity in fostering a harmonious society. As the nation reflects on this profound moment, the spirit of ‘seva’ embodied by Prime Minister Modi serves as a guiding light, illuminating the path towards a brighter, more compassionate future.
