Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Pehli Patshahi at Bulani, Distt Larkana

Bulani is a well-known town of Sindh province. Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji honoured its people by setting his foot here. His shrine is beautifully built. Nanakpanthi Hindus are the priests. Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib takes place daily.
pA she herd by the name of Nur Nusrat served Guru and wished to know the prayer which brings good fortune. Guru Dev Ji told him that all good fortune lay in virtue and in not deviating from the path shown by the religion. Dawood, a weaver, of the same place, had presented a valuable rug to Guru Dev Ji, he spread this rug under the puppies of a bitch who were shivering with cold and said, "My rug is this green grass". His teaching was that our happiness is useless if a erson sitting close by is in pain. The Sangat enthusiastically assembles at this place and the Guru's angar is running.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
