Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, was born in a critical period of Indian history. On the one hand, people were divided into castes, sects and factions; on the other, the Muslim rulers committed atrocities on the Hindus and the weaker sections of society. The masses in their hardships and miseries cried for saviour. Nanak came as God’s messenger in the common man’s hour of dire need.
It was a period of transition from medievalism to modernism. Men of action and thought explored the world of matter and spirit. Guru Nanak revealed the secret of man’s spiritual potential. Similarly, he accepted life’s struggles and hardships and pioneereda movement of reform in social and religious conduct. He reformed the dregs of society through argument, conviction and personal example. His followers, called ‘sikhs’ formed a group of God-fearing men and women devoted to the service of the people. He laid down simple rules of conduct through which man could lead a humane and meaningful life and find his own fulfillment. Hindus and Muslims revered him alike. His life is an inspiring example of the practice of truth, love and humility.
