Guru Nanak Sahib

Guru Nanak

Guru Nanak Sahib established a Divine rule of truth that proclaimed Creator and creation’s Oneness. He confronted hypocrisy, challenged oppression and declared alliance with the downtrodden. He asserted everyone’s right to dignity, liberty, justice, and above all divinity. He enjoyed dual sovereignty of Raj-Jog (Rule-Divine Union), and bestowed it on everyone who submitted to the truth.

Make Your Deeds The Soil

Sabad is Infinite; we are very finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow, as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad.
