Guru Nanak, founder of the Sikh religion, was born in 1469. He declared that there was only one God. He travelled far and wide to spread the Word of God. In his own inimitable way, he used subtle persuasion, humour, sarcasm and even admonition to spread the message that everyone—the rich and the poor, man and woman—had equal status in His court. He fought a tireless battle against ritualism. He dismantled the man-made barriers of caste and creed and established a religion that has twenty-three million followers worldwide. The book studies the life and the teachings of Guru Nanak, as reflected in his compositions. Special stress has been laid on discussing the morning prayer, Japji, the establishment of the institutions of sangat and langar and the Guru’s message for improving the status of women. The book is profusely illustrated with reproductions of rare eighteenth century miniature paintings and line drawings, including a series from a Janamsakhi that has never been published before. It also has maps depicting the travels of Guru Nanak.
