The first verses after the enlightenment reflect the revelation of Guru Nanak
appearing in Aad Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh Holy Book (AGGS. p. 1).
There is One God, the Infinite, Truth,
The Creator, without Fear and without Enmity.
The Timeless, created by Itself,
Neither takes Birth nor Dies to be born again.
By His Grace shalt thou Worship and Know Him.
Before Time itself, there was Truth.
As time runs its course, the Truth sustains.
And that Truth shall prevail for evermore.
The Holy Book includes 5894 writings of 36 holy men from 12th to 17th centuries honoring their spirituality. Scriptures portray the condition of the times from Guru
Nanak (1469-1539) to Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708) perpetuating the philosophy which continues to this day. Daily prayer of a Sikh culminates with the words: "Under Your Divine Will, We Pray for the Welfare of All (Humanity)."
Sikh devotees aspire to follow the following teachings:
- Meditate on God's Name, conscious of The Omnipresent.
- Honest Earning, Truthful Living and Purity in Life.
- Sharing with the under-privileged with Compassion and Humility.
