About the Book

Insightful, compassionate and 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 the 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.
