Sikhism,सिख धर्म

Sikhism is a religion founded in the late 15th century Punjab on the teachings of Guru Nanak Devji. The Sikh religion today has a following of over 20 million people worldwide and is ranked as the worlds 5th largest religion. It is traditionally known as the Gurmat (which literally means to "have your face towards the guru").

Sikhism originated from the word Sikh which means 'disciple'. Sikhs are the disciples of God who follow the writings and teachings of the Ten Sikh Gurus. Sikhs believe in one God who cannot be represented by idols or any other image. God (waheguru) created the universe and all its contents and is charecterized by being immanent, omnipresent, transcendent and omnipotent. This shapeless, incrustable God can only be reached by achieving divine self-expression and truth via meditation taught by a Guru. The followers of Sikhism follow the teachings of the ten Sikh gurus as well as the holy scripture entitled the Gurū Granth Sāhib.
