Sikh Religious Tour
The word Sikh literally means 'a learner', or 'a student', and is derived from the Sanskrit word shishya. In the Punjabi language the word Sikh also means to learn.
A Sikh is a follower of the religion called Sikhi, or, Sikhism, the fifth largest organised religion in the world. Sikhs are disciples of the ten Sikh Gurus, divine spiritual messengers who established the religion over the 15th to the 17th century. The sacred scripture Guru Granth Sahib, consisting of the revelations of the Sikh Gurus and several saints from Hindu and Muslim backgrounds, is now the perpetual spiritual guide for the Sikhs, accorded the same respect and service as a living Guru.
Guru Nanak, born in 1469 in a village of the Punjab province of the Indian subcontinent, was the first of the human form Sikh Gurus. The tenth and last human master was Guru Gobind Singh, who decreed the scripture Guru Granth Sahib to be the eternal Guru of the Sikhs.
