Resource Toolbox

the founder of the sect of the Seikhs, which has now grown into a powerful nation, was originally a Hindui of the Khetore caste, and was born, in 1469, at Talawandy (now called Rhaypore), a small village of Lahore, Hindostan. He is said to have travelled through most of the countries in India, and even into Persia and Arabia, preaching his doctrines in peace, and preserving an unaffected meekness and simplicity of manners. He died at Rawu, a village tofthe north of Lahore, in 1539. The unity, omniscience, and omnipotence of God were some of the principal tenets taught by Nanok. Not less than 100,000 persons in different countries adopted the tenets of Nanok before his decease, and considered him as their guru, or religious guide. (See SEIKHS).
