This is the year when the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak started formally to teach the world about this new world faith. Guru sahib was then 30 years old and start this mission to bring a renewed awareness to lead an endowed spiritual and morally elevated life.
The Guru writes in the Guru Granth Sahib: "I was a minstrel, out of work, when the Lord took me into His service. To sing His Praises day and night, He gave me His Order, right from the start. My Lord and Master has summoned me, His minstrel, to the True Mansion of His Presence. He has dressed me in the robes of His True Praise and Glory. The Ambrosial Nectar of the True Name has become my food. Those who follow the Guru's Teachings, who eat this food and are satisfied, find peace. His minstrel spreads His Glory, singing and vibrating the Word of His Shabad. Nanak, praising the True Lord, I have obtained His Perfection. ||27||Sudh||" (SGGS p150)
