Guru nanak quotes


It is believed in Sikhism that since childhood, Nanak Dev ji was rich in special powers. He got to learn a lot from his sister Nanaki. At the age of 16, he got married to Sulkhani. Sulakhani was a resident of Lakhawki in Gurdaspur district of Punjab (India). He had two sons Srichand and Lakhmi Chand. The birth of these two children, Nanak ji, went out on pilgrimage shortly after. He made very long journeys. He was accompanied by Mardana, Lahna, Bala and Ramdas in this journey. By 1521 he traveled. During this journey, he preached to everyone and made them aware against social evils. He visited many places in India, Afghanistan and Arabia. These yatras are called "gloom" in Punjabi.

Guru Nanak lived in many places during his travels. He opposed social malpractices. He considered idol worship to be futile and opposed orthodox thinking. He spent the last time of his life in Kartarpur, Pakistan. Kartapur is a sacred religious site for Sikhs. Guru Nanak ji died on 22 September 1539, but he left behind him the three basic principles of his life namely Japo, Kirat Karo and Vanda Chakho for the followers of Sikhism. The divine light of Guru Nanak Dev ji fell in Kartarpur. He succeeded his disciple brother Lahna before his death, who would later be called Guru Angad Dev.
