Nanaks 2nd set of Homes besides his own home in Punjab, where he spent a big part of his life. Shalas structured, managed, ruled, & run by FALSEHOOD during the bloody war torn Hindu-Muslim infarnos burning all over & Nanak consistently honing his survival Skills & passing on the TRUE IDEAs to the companions he could TRUST (an impossible feat & TRUE Sikhi. expects each one of us to become masters of).
