Devotees converged in Sehwan Sharif on Saturday to attend the 771st urs celebrations of Syed Mohammad Usman Marwandi — the most revered saint of the subcontinent from 12th century who is popularly known as Qalandar Lal Shahbaz.
The urs officially began this morning with Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori laying floral wreaths on Qalandar’s shrine and paying his respects.
In spiritual sense, the urs of a personality marks the departure of a saint from this world for the world hereafter. Thus, even though urs superficially marks the date of a saint’s death, the devotees consider it a meeting between their spiritual leader and God.
Therefore, men, women and children celebrate the occasion, believing that their saint remains their only contact between them and God.
