Ten Important Teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Ten Teachings About Guru Nank Dev Ji You Must Know

Not in any particular order

1)There is One God

“There is but One God, His name is Truth, He is the Creator, He fears none, he is without hate, He never dies, He is beyond the cycle of births and death, He is self illuminated, He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru. He was True in the beginning, He was True when the ages commenced and has ever been True, He is also True now.” (Japji)

2)There is No Hindu, There is No Muslim

This pronouncement was substantial as it referred to the day and age in which Guru Nanak Dev Ji lived: Hindus and Muslims of India constantly and bitterly fought each other over the issue of religion. The Guru meant to emphasise that, ultimately, in the eyes of God, it is not religion that determines a person’s merits, but one’s actions. The Guru witnessed the Mughal invasion of India, and saw the horrors inflicted upon the common people by the invaders. Guru Nanak Dev Ji did not hesitate to speak up against injustice:

3) Guru Nanak Dev Ji laid forth three basic principles by which every human being should abide:

1. Naam Japna Guru ji led the Sikhs directly to practise Simran and Naam Japna – meditation on God through reciting, chanting, singing and constant remembrance followed by deep study & comprehension of God’s Name and virtues. In real life to practice and tread on the path of Dharam(righteousness) – The inner thought of the Sikh thus stays constantly immersed in praises and appreciation of the Creator and the ONE ETERNAL GOD Waheguru.
2. Kirat Karni He expected the Sikhs to live as honourable householders and practise Kirat Karni – To honestly earn by ones physical and mental effort while accepting both pains and pleasures as GOD’s gifts and blessings. One is to stay truthful at all times and, fear none but the Eternal Super Soul. Live a life founded on decency immersed in Dharam – life controlled by high spiritual, moral and social values.
3. Vand Chakna. The Sikhs were asked to share their wealth within the community by practising Vand Chakna – “Share and Consume together”. The community or Sadh Sangat is an important part of Sikhism. One must be part of a community that is living the flawless objective values set out by theSikh Gurus and every Sikh has to contribute in whatever way possible to the common community pool. This spirit of Sharing and Giving is an important message from Guru Nanak.

4) Women and Men Equality

“We are born of woman, we are conceived in the womb of woman, we are engaged and married to woman. We make friendship with woman and the lineage continued because of woman. When one woman dies, we take another one, we are bound with the world through woman. Why should we talk ill of her, who gives birth to kings? The woman is born from woman; there is none without her. Only the One True Lord is without woman” (Guru Nanak, Var Asa, pg. 473)

5) Sarbatt Da Bhaala 

In the Sikh ardas (Prayer) we as for peace and well being for all of mankind, it’s one of the most important teachings.

6) Guru Nanak Dev Ji emphasised:

“Truth is high but higher still is truthful living.’

7) Guru Nanak Dev Ji Taught by Example:

Like all the Gurus after him, Guru Nanak Dev Ji preached by example. During a time of great social conflict and religious decay, his message served as a fresh, uncorrupted approach towards spirituality and God. The Guru founded the institutions of Gurdwara, Sangat and Pangat. He introduced the concept of suitability for Guruship by ignoring his sons and appointing Bhai Lehna Ji as the second Sikh Guru to continue spreading his teachings. He departed for heavenly abode on September 7, 1539. The message of the Guru Ji took almost 240 years to unfold, and so, in accordance with the Will of God, the soul of Guru Nanak Dev Ji merged into the souls of his nine successors.

8) Equality of humans

When in the middle east, the west and the rest of asia slavery, varna/class and race discrimination was rife and respect between the different classes and caste was at a peak, Guru Nanak preached against discrimination and prejudices due to race, caste, status, etc. He said: “See the brotherhood of all mankind as the highest order of Yogis; conquer your own mind, and conquer the world.” (SGGS page 6); also “There is one awareness among all created beings.” (page 24) and finally “One who recognizes the One Lord among all beings does not talk of ego. ||4||” (page 432). He urges all the peoples of the world to “conquer” their minds to these evil practises. All human beings had the light of the Lord and were the same — only by subduing one’s pride and ego could one see this light in all.

9) Universal message for all people

It had been a custom at the time for religious leaders to address only their own congregation and for segregation of the different religions — but Guru Nanak broke with tradition and spoke to all of humanity. To the Muslim he said: “And when, O Nanak, he is merciful to all beings, only then shall he be called a Muslim. ||1||” (page 141); to the Hindu, he said “O Nanak, without the True Name, of what use is the frontal mark of the Hindus, or their sacred thread? ||1||” (page 467); and to all he preached: “To take what rightfully belongs to another is like a Muslim eating pork, or a Hindu eating beef.” (page 141).

10) Honest Living

Guru Nanak was a great traveller. He walked thousands of miles on foot. He spent about thirty years of his life traveling. He went to the East, the South, the North and the West. He went to Ceylon and Kashmir. His friends Bala and Mardana were also with him. They traveled for a pretty long time. They would stay for the night at some village and start next morning Guru Nanak and his friends would sing hymns and the people of the village would come to hear them.
One day Guru Nanak reached Eminabad. There lived a poor carpenter. His name was Lalo. The Guru stayed with Lalo who served him with loving care. Guru Nanak enjoyed the simple food of Bhai Lalo very much. He stayed there for some days. There was also a very rich man, Malik Bhago in that village. He wanted to make a show of his money. He gave a big feast. He invited many people to this feast. Guru Nanak was also invited. But Nanak would not go. Malik Bhago came to the Guru and said, “Why don’t you come to my rich feast, 0 Nanak? Am I no better than a poor carpenter?”

“No, Malik Bhago. I see no difference between man and man. I like simple food so I stayed with Bhai Lalo. If you must take me along, I am ready to go,” replied Nanak.

Guru Nanak Squeezing the foodSo Guru Nanak went to the feast. He took with him some simple food from Bhai Lalo’s house. When the rich food was served to all, Guru Nanak also sat down among the people. Before anybody started eating, Guru Nanak stood up. He held in one hand the simple food which he had brought from the poor man’s house. In the other hand he took the rich food from the feast. All the people looked at him in surprise. He squeezed the two foods. From the poor man’s food came drops of milk and from the rich man’s food fell drops of blood. All the people were surprised.

Malik Bhago was very angry. He felt small. He asked Guru Nanak why he had done this magic. Guru Nanak said, “This is not magic, this is the truth. A poor man’s food is clean. He works hard for it. That is why milk runs out from it. Your food is not clean. You do not get it by honest work. You are unkind to the people who work for you. You squeeze their blood. That is why blood has come out of your rich food.” Malik Bhago could say nothing. He bowed before the Guru and promised to be kind to the workers and to work honestly with his own hands.

“Work harder and share with others Nanak, You will see God this way.”
Guru Nanak
“The Lord knows our needs and gives, Few there are that praise His blessings, He who thanks the Lord and in His will lives, 0 Nanak, is the King of kings.”
Guru Nanak
“If it please the Lord in holy water I would bathe. If it pleases Him not worthless is that pilgrimage In the whole world of ours None without actions, sees the Lord.”
Guru Nanak
“Cruelty, false love, greed and anger are four streams of fire. They who fall into them are burnt, O Nanak. Only those are saved who cling to His feet.”
Guru Nanak

11) SANGAT AND PANGAT –  In order to implement his teaching Guru Nanak brought a social and religious revolution by providing a platform of SANGAT and PANGAT where people would sit together, pray together, and eat together without any caste, colour, creed, or faith.  Nobody was considered inferior or superior regardless of his birth and wealth.

When The Same Hukamnama Came for Three Straight Days at Sri Darbar Sahib

In what appears to be a direct message from Guru Sahib, 3 straight days the same Hukamnama came at evening time from Sri Harmandar Sahib Ji. Also, the same hukamnama came during Amritvela for the dates of October 23, 2015 and October 25, 2015.

In Punjab, multiple cases of desecration are occurring throughout Punjab for many days now and innocent GurSikhs are lodged in jails for crimes they didn’t commit.

It’s a time of unrest in Punjab as people are hurt due to the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. In this time of uncertainty and rest Guru Sahib has given a message.

Guru Sahib is saying that everything is being watched and especially those who are committing sins.

The living Guru of the Sikhs has given Sikhs a message in the Hukamnama. Guru Ji is listening carefully to everyone’s prayers and ardas.

Through Raag Dhanasari, a raag which portrays the sense of being completely carefree yet optimistic of the future, Maharaj tells the Khalsa to have faith and that justice will come through the Hukam(command) of Vaheguru!

The Hukamnama for evenings of October 23rd, 24th, and 25th at Sri Harmandar Sahib was the same:

Same Hukamnama came during Amritvela for the dates of October 23, 2016 and October 25, 2016.

Sikh Soldiers Refused to Leave Bangladesh Until Muslim Women Were Rescued

During the 1971 war against Pakistan in Bangladesh, General Jagjit Singh Arora and the Sikhs made a 90,000 strong Pakistani army surrender without any causalities. The Singhs shouting Jaikare (Sikh Slogan) Bole So Nihal ! Sat Sri Akal approached the war site.

After looking at the Sikhs and hearing the Jaikare the Pakistani General A. A. K. Niazi surrendered and all 90,000 Pakistani troops became prisoners of war.

sikhrescue

The Pakistani army fled the villages they had occupied along with many of the villagers. A Sikh soldier found a woman who was left behind in a Pakistani village. The soldier took care of the old lady, provided her with food, and tried to locate her family. This act of kindness was recorded in governmental files.

When the Sikh troops entered further into East Pakistan which is now Bangladesh, they found hundreds of woman left behind who were abducted by enemy troops and were raped. The Sikh Soldiers took off their jackets and many removed their turbans to cover the naked bodies of the woman.

One Bengali person who watched the incredible humanitarian effort unfold stated, “They took off their turbans and used them to wrap around the naked bodies of the women who were raped and left abandoned by the opposing forces.”

The Sikh troops provided protection for the women while they were under control of the country. The Sikhs soldiers made sure the woman were safe and returned them to their villages before leaving the country.

This kind act on part of the Sikh Soldiers is mentioned in the 1971 government files.

Sikhs have a very long history of protecting women on enemy grounds. Sikhs led the charge in the 1700s of bringing back abducted woman by Ahmed Shah Abdali from Delhi to be sold in Afghan markets. The Sikhs would attack the caravans of Abdali and bring back them women to their villages.

The Sikh faith teaches to help those in need with any means possible, it’s the essence of Sikhi and the Sikhi spirit.

A Belgium Doctor’s PHD on Sacrifice of Sikh Soldiers

The Belgium doctor John More did his P. H. D on the sacrifice of Sikhs for the freedom of belgium. In the thesis, the sacrifice of Sikh soldiers has been presented in a very hearty Vedic way. After feeling this sacrifice, tears start flowing from everyone’s eyes and the sister itself bows down.

The fearlessness and sacrifices shown by the 47th Sikh Regiment in Lahore and Meerut divisions especially for the sake of Belgium freedom are refreshed every year on November 15.

Nagar Kirtan organized by Sikhs on this Independence Day (sikhs parade day) pays tribute to the Queen of England Elizabeth who sacrificed their lives for independence when it reaches the Menon Gate.

At that time, Manon Gate echoes with the chants of ‘Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akal’. The names of the soldiers martyred at the Menon Gate are marked in golden letters.

You can see in the picture. During this freedom war, 352 out of 444 Sikh soldiers of the 47th Sikh Regiment were martyred.The cemetery of Eper (Belgium) has beautiful graves of these martyred soldiers which can be seen in the picture.

‘Sri Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh’ is engraved in thick letters on these graves. A total of 34522 Sikh soldiers received martyrdom in the West Morcha (France and Belgium) of the First World War.In addition, around 45960 Sikh soldiers were buried in Italy, Egypt, Iran, Palestine, Africa etc. In this way, in the second world war, 82005 Sikh soldiers were martyred.

Rare Colorized 1935 Sri Darbar Sahib Video Surfaces on Social Media

A video of Sri Darbar Sahib in 1935 was seen on social media. The video which was said to be from 1935 and colorized appeared on an Instagram handle called Khalsa Media Works.

“The eastern loggia of the Temple was glided by Rani Sada Kaur at a cost of Rs. 175300, while the other three sides were done in gold by the Maharaja Ranjit Singh at the heavy cost of Rs. 535332. The whole decorative work wrought in gold was executed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, his son and grandson Maharaja Kharak Singh and Kunwar Nau Nihal Singh.

The Akal Takht’s first storey of the present building was prepared in 1774 while the upper four storeys were added by Maharaja Ranjit Singh. General Hari Singh Nalwa donated a huge sum for its gold work, but the donation was mis-appropriated and the work was left undone for the Sangat to complete it.“
– Jagjit Singh (1935)

How Maharaja of Nabha Defied British Authorities

Coronation of the Rebel Maharaja Ripudaman Singh (January 24, 1912)After the ascension of Maharaja Hira Singh, Ripudaman Singh succeeded to the throne of Nabha.Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha and Bhau Arjan Singh Baghardia were instrumental in cultivating religious tendency in Ripudaman Singh and was one of the most philanthropic and rebellious thinkers among the Sikh states of the time.Normally, the Takht Nashini was held by the British Government in the presence of the British Governor.

However, Ripudaman Singh, in a rebellious tone, performed the turban-laying ceremony on 24 January 1912 in a ceremony held by Bhai Arjan Singh Bagrian, the Guru Granth Saheb ji Maharaj as Maharaja’s successor, to assume the throne as Maharaja of Nabha.

When the British government protested against this, Maharaja Ripudaman Singh made it clear: ‘What has the British got to do with my coronation? Raj Bhog is blessed by our Gurus.”He had a distinct personality and education.

He was true to his heritage and helped steer an important legislation for the Sikhs and helped nationalists. An able ruler who introduced many reforms, he laid stress on education and health, all the while fencing with the British colonial authorities who eventually deposed him.

Of all the people,During the British Raj, like many such states, Nabha had a mixed legacy of “absolute autonomy, willing acceptance of political subordination to the British, defiance of the British authorities, feeble resistance to encroachments, and dignified insistence on their own rights.”Tikka Ripudaman Singh was educated by personal tutors like Bhai Kahan Singh and Lala Bishan Das.

He had not made the journey to Chiefs’ College, Lahore, like others did. Along with English education, he received traditional training that laid a strong foundation and shaped his actions. He grew up to be a “devout Sikh, a keen social reformer and a staunch nationalist.” He defied his father, Raja Hira Singh, and succeeded in having idols removed from the parikarma of Darbar Sahib in Amritsar.

As heir apparent, his notable contribution was in steering the Sikh Marriage Act through the Viceroy’s Legislative Council which he introduced on October 30, 1908. However, his term was not renewed and he was unhappy with the dilution of the Act into Anand Marriage Act. He, however, left a mark during his tenure in the council and fought for recognition of his work, which came after a prolonged effort, when he was vindicated in the House of Commons.

The Tikka had also raised other political and social issues. His conduct in the council led to assessment by Lord Minto that he would be “a troublesome ruler”.This could be seen right from the time of his accession. Ripudaman Singh took his succession as a matter of right, and not something to be granted by the British Political Agent.

On January 24, 1912, his dastar bandi was performed by Bhai Arjan Singh Bagrain in a darbar held with due ceremony. He delayed the British-sponsored installation ceremony for as long as he could, insisting on his own interpretation of procedures. His running battle with the local British administrators, including the Governor of Punjab, Michael O’Dyer, left many scars on both sides — something that would eventually cost the Maharaja dear.Nabha’s contribution to the war effort of the British was the lowest among Indian princes.

In administration, Ripudaman Singh consolidated the good work done by his father, who had laid a solid foundation. He introduced free primary education in the state in 1913; increased the budget of hospitals and dispensaries; and introduced electricity in Nabha in 1915. In 1918, he established a Legislative Council in Nabha, the first of its kind in North India, which introduced a certain degree of democratic governance.

Ripudaman Singh sympathised with political movements inimical to the colonial power. He was supportive of the Ghadar movement, as also Bhai Randhir Singh, son of Natha Singh, an Assistant Legal Remembrancer in Nabha.

The Maharaja’s support to Sikh causes earned him respect of the masses, and the ire of British agents. He donated Rs 2 lakh to the Banaras Hindu University and, in general, behaved in a manner that emphasised the internal sovereignty of the princely states.
