Kal taran Guru Nanak aya

So said Dalai Lama……….
Saints like Guru Nanak make their presence felt in this weary world in order to show the right path to the suffering humanity by personal sacrifice and example. The message of Guru Nanak was a real blessing at the time when India was in grave crisis.

The foundation of Sikhism is laid on the teachings of Guru Nanak. Guru Nanak's teachings centered on the firm belief in one ‘Param Atma’, earning an honest living and sharing, and that all the  people of all religions are the equal.
Guru Nanak disentangled people from the buildup of errors through ages and encouraged them not to harbour prejudices in mind and to reject rules and rituals which shackled them in dogmatic confusion of 'Kalyug', by and by guiding them towards spirituality. Guru Nanak laid stress on keeping true faith in God and pursuing the path of good, and truth which leads one towards God.

 He often said that God was inside oneself.
.................As fragrance abides in the flower
                 As reflection is within the mirror.
                 So does your Lord abide within you,
                 Why search for him without?”..........................
But then, is this not what is said by each and every man of God over the centuries….But do we listen.

Buddha -- The subject on which I meditate is truth. The practice to which I devote myself is the truth. The topic of my conversation is truth. My thoughts are always in truth. For lo! Myself has become the truth.






 Jesus Christ -- Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, he answered them, "The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; nor will they say, ‘Lo, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is within you."








Krishna -- I am the Self, O Gudekesa, seated in the hearts of all creatures. I am the beginning, the middle, and the end of all beings.


 Mohammed -- He who knows his own self, knows God..
