About the Book

This Book explores events in Guru Nanak Dev's life that give an insight into the thoughts & beliefs of a sagacious & humane person – an enlightened soul. This is a collection of saakhis about the life of Guru Nanak – the wise & compassionate founder of Sikhism. The narratives, built on oral recounts, underscore the wisdom of a pure gentle soul with a world-view that is rational. Guru Nanak was a seeker of the Ultimate Truth. The Guru believed in equality & in respecting the dignity of all human beings – irrespective of caste, class, color, religion or gender. This is a collection of 500-year-old anecdotes about: an inquisitive child who questioned the world around him; a perceptive teenager who thought rationally in an irrational world; an informed youngster who looked for the logic behind the extant norms and mores; a wise and empathetic human being who tried to obliterate prejudices that were deep-rooted in society and a gentle, serene and pure soul who spread harmony, peace & compassion.
