kirat karo, naam japo and vand chhako

Shri Guru Nanak

Social institutions for a good society:

  • Langar: Collective cooking and sharing of food.
  • Pangat: Partaking food without distinctions of high and low caste.
  • Sangat: Collective decision making.

He advocated the concept of “dasvandh” or donating one-tenth of one’s earnings among needy persons.

He transformed the idea of spiritualism into the ideology of social responsibility and social change

ੴ ਸਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰਭਉ ਨਿਰਵੈਰੁ ਅਕਾਲ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਅਜੂਨੀ ਸੈਭੰ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ ਜਪੁ।। ਆਦਿ ਸਚੁ ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ ਹੈ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ।। ਨਾਨਕ ਹੋਸੀ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ।।

Ik Oankaar Sati nāmu karatā purakhu nirabha’u niravairu akāla mūrati ajūnī saibha gura prasādi. Japu.. Ādi sacu jugādi sacu hai bhī sacu.. Nānaka hōsī bhī sacu..




This Being is one, truth by name, creator, fearless, without hatred, of timeless form, unborn, self-existent, and known by the Guru’s grace.

Ek is not a word which can mean one, many, few in Punjabi. Ek is not a word.

It is the numberal “1”. The only ONE.
