Guru Nanak Ki Bani

Articles on Sikhism written by Sujan Singh

Introduction

Sikhism was founded by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji over 500 years back. The followers of Sikhism are called Sikhs who were later christened by tenth guru, Sri Guru Govind Sing Ji as Khalsa in 1699 AD. Sikhs are guided by Guru Bani of Sri Guru Granth Saheb Ji deified as the guru of Sikhs by Sri Guru Govind Singh Ji during his life time.Sri Guru Granth Saheb Ji was compiled by fifth Sikh guru, Sri Guru Arjun Dev Ji and contains guru bani of seven gurus and eighteen saints. The selection of saints by guru ji for inclusion of their bani in Sri Guru Granth Saheb Ji was done solely on the basis that the basic principles in their bani were same as those in the bani of all the gurus. Sikh tenets do not believe in idol worship as well as the worship of tombs, mausoleums, trees, animals, gods and goddesses.  The leaders of some religious sects, however, tend to interpret guru bani in a way that suits their interests overlooking the basic principles of Sikhism. This website is created to interpret guru bani in right perspective for the guidance of Sikh youth as well as members of other communities who believe in Sikh tenets.

In what context the word "christened " used on this page, in the first line. I suppose it should be baptized.
Kindly advise/ comment.

  • SORAT'H, FIFTH MEHL: Sing the Glorious Praises of the Perfect, Imperishable Lord, and the poison of sexual desire and anger shall be burnt away. You shall cross over the awesome, arduous ocean of fire, in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy. || 1 || The Perfect Guru has dispelled the darkness of doubt. Remember God with love and devotion; He is near at hand. || Pause || Drink in the sublime essence, the treasure of the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, and your mind and body shall remain satisfied. The Transcendent Lord is totally permeating and pervading everywhere; where would He come from, and where would He go? || 2 || One whose mind is filled with the Lord, is a person of meditation, penance, self-restraint and spiritual wisdom, and a knower of reality. The Gurmukh obtains the jewel of the Naam; his efforts come to perfect fruition. || 3 || All his struggles, sufferings and pains are dispelled, and the noose of death is cut away from him. Says Nanak, God has extended His Mercy, and so his mind and body blossom forth. || 4 || 12 || 23 || Hukamnama from SikhNet.com
