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.
