Maghar is the ninth month in the Nanakshahi calendar. A calendar system which governs the activities within Sikhism and is based from the birth of the founder of Sikhi, Guru Nanak in 1469. This month coincides with November - December of the Western/Georgian/Julian Calendar and is 30 days long. The month starts on November 14 and the season during this month is most pleasant in Punjab where Sikhi took birth. Many tourists visit north India during Maghar and Poh which start on December 14.

SGGS: This Month

This is what the Guru Granth Sahib says about this month:

ਮੰਘਿਰਿ ਮਾਹਿ ਸੋਹੰਦੀਆ ਹਰਿ ਪਿਰ ਸੰਗਿ ਬੈਠੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਤਿਨ ਕੀ ਸੋਭਾ ਕਿਆ ਗਣੀ ਜਿ ਸਾਹਿਬਿ ਮੇਲੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਤਨ੝ ਮਨ੝ ਮਉਲਿਆ ਰਾਮ ਸਿਉ ਸੰਗਿ ਸਾਧ ਸਹੇਲੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਸਾਧ ਜਨਾ ਤੇ ਬਾਹਰੀ ਸੇ ਰਹਨਿ ਇਕੇਲੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਤਿਨ ਦ੝ਖ੝ ਨ ਕਬਹੂ ਉਤਰੈ ਸੇ ਜਮ ਕੈ ਵਸਿ ਪੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਜਿਨੀ ਰਾਵਿਆ ਪ੝ਰਭ੝ ਆਪਣਾ ਸੇ ਦਿਸਨਿ ਨਿਤ ਖੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਰਤਨ ਜਵੇਹਰ ਲਾਲ ਹਰਿ ਕੰਠਿ ਤਿਨਾ ਜੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਾਂਛੈ ਧੂੜਿ ਤਿਨ ਪ੝ਰਭ ਸਰਣੀ ਦਰਿ ਪੜੀਆਹ ॥ ਮੰਘਿਰਿ ਪ੝ਰਭ੝ ਆਰਾਧਣਾ ਬਹ੝ੜਿ ਨ ਜਨਮੜੀਆਹ ॥10॥

ma(n)ghir maahi soha(n)dheeaa har pir sa(n)g bait(h)arreeaah ॥ thin kee sobhaa kiaa ganee j saahib maelarreeaah ॥ than man mouliaa raam sio sa(n)g saadhh sehaelarreeaah ॥ saadhh janaa thae baaharee sae rehan eikaelarreeaah ॥ thin dhukh n kabehoo outharai sae jam kai vas parreeaah ॥ jinee raaviaa prabh aapanaa sae dhisan nith kharreeaah ॥ rathan javaehar laal har ka(n)t(h) thinaa jarreeaah ॥ naanak baa(n)shhai dhhoorr thin prabh saranee dhar parreeaah ॥ ma(n)ghir prabh aaraadhhanaa bahurr n janamarreeaah ॥10॥

In the month of Maghar, those who sit with their Beloved Husband Lord are beautiful. How can their glory be measured? Their Lord and Master blends them with Himself. Their bodies and minds blossom forth in the Lord; they have the companionship of the Holy Saints. Those who lack the Company of the Holy, remain all alone. Their pain never departs, and they fall into the grip of the Messenger of Death. Those who have ravished and enjoyed their God, are seen to be continually exalted and uplifted. They wear the Necklace of the jewels, emeralds and rubies of the Lord's Name. Nanak seeks the dust of the feet of those who take to the Sanctuary of the Lord's Door. Those who worship and adore God in Maghar, do not suffer the cycle of reincarnation ever again. ((10))
