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.

Daily Hukamnama in English

  • ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. TRUTH IS THE NAME. CREATIVE BEING PERSONIFIED. NO FEAR. NO HATRED. IMAGE OF THE UNDYING. BEYOND BIRTH. SELF-EXISTENT. BY GURU’S GRACE: RAAG TODEE, CHAU-PADAS, FOURTH MEHL, FIRST HOUSE: Without the Lord, my mind cannot survive. If the Guru unites me with my Beloved Lord God, my breath of life, then I shall not have to face the wheel of reincarnation again in the terrifying world-ocean. || 1 || Pause || My heart is gripped by a yearning for my Lord God, and with my eyes, I behold my Lord God. The merciful True Guru has implanted the Name of the Lord within me; this is the Path leading to my Lord God. || 1 || Through the Lord’s Love, I have found the Naam, the Name of my Lord God, the Lord of the Universe, the Lord my God. The Lord seems so very sweet to my heart, mind and body; upon my face, upon my forehead, my good destiny is inscribed. || 2 || Those whose minds are attached to greed and corruption forget the Lord, the good Lord God. Those self-willed manmukhs are called foolish and ignorant; misfortune and bad destiny are written on their foreheads. || 3 || From the True Guru, I have obtained a discriminating intellect; the Guru has revealed the spiritual wisdom of God. Servant Nanak has obtained the Naam from the Guru; such is the destiny inscribed upon his forehead. || 4 || 1 || Hukamnama from SikhNet.com
