Guru Nanak founded Sikhism in a land where there were already two well established ancient religions, Hinduism and Islam. However, with time, their original form had been corrupted. Nanak gave the world, a simple, non-ritualistic religion.

Guru Nanak travelled far and wide to spread the word of God. Constant Companions on such journeys were Mardana and Bala. The former was a Muslim 'dum', a professional singer and the latter played the 'ruhbab'. Sitting on a low seat, against a bolster, Nanak recites from a manuscript to the accompaniment of Bala's ruhbab. He wears a saffron robe, his one hand counts the beads of the rosary and the other holds the book, his arm resting on the yog-danda. A green halo surrounds his calm demeanour. Mardana, wearing a commoner's attire of the times, hold a fly whisk above Guru Nanak; while Bala looks up to the Guru with reverence while playing on the instrument.

The right side of the painting prominently displays a banana plantain, while the rest of the background remains plain but for the numerous shades of the sky.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
