FROM OUR PRESIDENT
is a matter immense pleasure and great satisfaction that a website
on the Holy life, Bani, Teaching and philosophy of Guru Ravi Dass
is being launched by Shri Guru Ravi Dass Trust on the occasion
of 629th birthday of the great guru.
The pioneer of the socialistic pattern of society, Guru Ravi Dass
wanted to create a new social order in the world based on equality,
liberty and fraternity.
Sri Guru Ravi Dass foundation INDIA is actively engaged in propagating
the philosophy of the Guru. For this purpose the Foundation has
so far organized 8 International seminars on various aspects of
Guru's teaching with a view to disseminating the noble message
enshrined in the sacred Bani of the medieval period Saint - poet
Guru Ravi Dass. The foundation has published dozens of books in
different languages so as to reach its target abroad. The Guru
Ravi Dass Bhawan, Jalandhar is playing a pivotal role in this
respect through recitation of Guru's Bani in the morning and evening
and also by holding Kirtan Darbars. A unique museum has been setup
in the premises of Bhawan where the sacred belongings of the Holy
Guru would be displayed for Public Darshan. The museum, which
is first of its kind in the entire world, will project the life
and mission of Guru Ravi Dass through pictures. Books on Guru
Ravi Dass in different languages would be made available to research
scholars including thesis written by various students for securing
PhD Degrees. Valuable manuscripts traced by the scholars from
Rajasthan, U.P. Punjab, United Kingdom etc. would be preserved
for coming generation.
The Punjab Government under the dynamic leadership of Capt. Amarinder
Singh, Chief Minister has been organizing State Level Function
every year in connection with the celebration Birthday of Shri
Guru Ravi Dass ji. In addition the Government has been striving
hard to ameliorate the lot of the down trodden and other weaker
sections of the society in order to achieve the desired goal.
I am confident that this website would play a remarkable role
in providing the valuable information about Shri Guru Ravi Dass
to the people living in India and abroad.

Shri Guru Ravi Dass Foundation, INDIA
