    Guru Nanak emphasised karam, he told his disciples thatgreater than truth was truthful living.His recipe for redemption was simple:karam karo, naam japo, wand chako: labour, remember God and share your earnings.

    The Janam-sakhi, book which relates incidents from the life of Guru Nanak, contains a tale which reflects both the Sikh ethos and the history of the Sikhs. The story says that one evening, after a long day on the road, Guru Nanak and his companions arrived in a village and asked for food and shelter but were turned away by the mean-spirited inhabitants. A mile or so on they came to another village. Here the residents came out and welcomed them, conducted them to a clean, comfortable room, brought the best food they had and when the Guru was rested, they asked him to teach them.

    The next day Guru Nanak and his companions set out again. Seeing the rejecting village in the distance, the Guru said:“May these people always remain settled where they are, may they never be disturbed or uprooted,”and then turning to the good village he pronounced:“May all these people be scattered.
    When his companions remonstrated at this strange blessing he explained its meaning: virtues should be spread around and not confined to a small place or just a few individuals.This perhaps is the reason (to spread the virtues throughout) that Guru Nanak is one of the most widely travelled man ever (travelled from Tibet to Sri Lanka , from Burma to Mecca, Medina and on to Rome).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
