The Gurus of Sikhism
Sikhi has been established since 1469 when the first master, teacher or Guru of this religion was born. Guru Nanak was the first Guru. His Guruship of the Sikhi faith lasted until 1539 when the second Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Angad became the leader. In this fashion, ten Gurus led the faith until 1708.
In October 1708, the tenth and last human Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh before setting off for his heavenly abode, installed the Guru Granth Sahib as the final and perpetual Sikh Guru. He said "Sabh Sikhan ko hukam hai, Guru maneo Granth" - "Every Sikh is ordered to accept the Granth as the Guru" and so from that day on, this Granth (or holy book) has served as the "living Guru" of the Sikhs.
