Description of this Book

He who regards all men as equals is religious. Insightful, compassionate, benevolent, Guru Nanak Dev was a scholar, teacher, mentor and guide. Both a man of God as well as of the people, he believed that religion was a means of bringing everyone together and upheld the equality of all human beings, whatever their caste, beliefs or gender. Unusually spiritual even as a child, Guru Nanak stood up bravely against the social and religious rituals of his times. He travelled far and wide, in India and beyond, for more than 20 years to spread the message of peace and humanity. His sermons, songs and stories are recorded as hymns in the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of Sikhism, the faith he founded. This book brings together the extraordinary life of Guru Nanak and his most important sayings and beliefs. From his steadfast pursuit of truth and equality, and his love for all, you too can learn to be a little bit like Guru Nanak. -PLUS- * Flipbook-action page corners * Timeline: A chronology of Guru Nanak's life * The Japji Sahib * Bonus Quiz: How much do you know about Guru Nanak
