With various names, faces and colors, humans have named god and identified him to their own comfort; what’s peculiar is the fact that each name, each language and each color takes you to the union that is mystic- the path to the holy.
Religions are just different ways to reach out to the almighty in the same way. To connect to the one you haven’t seen, spoken to or met through different ways. On the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, we bring you close to the ways baba nanak is remembered by people from different walks of life, of geography and of thoughts.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the first guru Sahib of Sikh’s has been named differently in various countries and states like – Nanakcharya in Sri Lanka, Nanak Lama in Tibbat, Guru Rimpochea in Sikkim and Bhutan, Nanak Rishi in Nepal, Nanak Peer in Bagdad, Val Hind in Makka, Nanak Vali in Misar, Guru Nanak Vali Hind, Nanak Kadamdar in Roos, Baba Nanak in Iraq, Peer Balagdaan in Mazhar Shareef and Baba Foosa in China.
The beauty of each name is the same path, the same prayer and the same purity, in each corner of the world.
One of the greatest religious innovators of all time- Guru Nanak Dev Ji travelled far and wide teaching people the message of one God who dwells in every one of His creations and constitutes the eternal Truth. He set up a unique spiritual, social, and political platform based on equality, fraternal love, goodness, and virtue, for each one.
Words of Guru Nanak Dev Ji are remembered each day in the form of 974 poetic hymns in the holy text of Sikhism, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
