Sikhism traces its beginnings to Punjab where Guru Nanak was born in 1469.
There are 25 Million Sikhs worldwide, of which 18 million live in the Panjab and other 7 million around the world.
At the heart of the religion are the Ten Sikh Gurus from the founder father guru Nanak (1469- 1539) to Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708) who transferred authority from individual masters to the scriptures know as Guru Granth Sahib.
Sikhism is known to be the fifth largest religion of the world. Sikhs today have their own ethics, rituals, festivals and ceremonies.
This book contains a brief introduction to the Sikh Gurus, The Takhts - the five seats of authority, Amrit- the initiation, Nishan Sahib- the symbolic Sikh Flag, the five K's and the Guru Granth Sahib.
The book includes information about the transition of Sikh scriptures from the contributors of Guru Nanak and other Gurus and holy men to the final living Guru- Guru Granth Sahib.
