Importance of Nagar Kirtans in Sikhism

Nagar Kirtan (Punjabi: ਨਗਰ ਕੀਰਤਨ) is a Sikh custom involving the processional singing of holy hymns throughout a community. While practised at any time, it is customary in the month of Visakhi (or Vaisakhi). Traditionally, the procession is led by the saffron-robed Panj Piare (the five beloveds of the Guru), who are followed by the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy Sikh scripture, which is placed on a float.[2] Commonly, members of the procession are unshod in deference to the displayed scripture. Likewise, many cover their heads and don the colour saffron or orange. The road before the procession is cleared by Sewadars. Bystanders bow their heads to the scripture. Food may be provided to them from floats that follow the Scripture or from stationary points near the vicinity of the procession.[3] The procession concludes at the Gurudwara with Ardas (pray).[4] Credits: Wikipedia
