Popular Gurunanak Dev Quotes

Baba Guru Nanak Dev – a true mystic and a true reformer, was the first- Sikh Guru. He preached simple things and laid stress on simplicity. He emphasized the importance of worship of one God. He insisted that caste, creed, or gender was irrelevant for attaining liberation.

Guru Nanak Dev’s idea of liberation was not that of a state of inert bliss but rather the pursuit of active life with a strong sense of social commitment. He himself used the terms nam, dan, and isnan for the essence of his teaching, which actually meant right worship, the welfare of others, and purity of conduct. His teachings also include the importance of right belief and worship, honest living, and helping others. Thus, Guru Nanak’s teachings contained the idea of social and political equality.

He proclaimed the Divine as ‘Ik Onkaar’ and preached that there is no Hindu and Muslims and prescribed the path of Naam japana, Krit karna, Wand chakhna. This path is also referred to as the three principles of his teachings.

Guru Nanak’s thoughts, views have been composed in 974 poetic hymns in Guru Granth Sahib – the holy text of Sikhism. The Guru Granth Sahib opens with this timeless composition of Guru Nanak Devji – ‘Ik Onkaar Satnaam Kartaa Purakh Nirbhau Nirvair Akaal Moorat Ajooni Saibhang Gurparsaad. Jap – Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhi Sach, Nanak Hosi Bhi Sach.’

Following are some of the famous quotes and saying by Guru Nanak, who led an eventful life full of wisdom.
