Sikhism By:R'rianna Seay

Founder: Guru Nanak

There is but one God. His name is truth. He is the creator. He fears none. He is without hate. He never dies. He is beyond the cycle of births and death. He is self illuminated. He is realized by the kindness of the true guru. He was true in the beginning. He was true when the ages commenced and has ever been true. He is also true now.- Guru Nanak

Sikhs have multiple beliefs, a few are...:

  • Sikhs believe in one God or Ik Onkar "One Supreme Reality"
  • Sikhs believe in reincarnation, which is when a person dies they are born over and over again
  • Sikhs also believe that everyone is equal in the eyes of God

The sikh sacred text is called the Guru Granth Sahib. Guru Granth Sahib was based off of the teachings of the ten gurus and was issued by the tenth and final guru Guru Gobind Singh.

Sikhism originated in India and spread when Guru Nanak went to different countries teaching his word with assistance from his sister Bibi Nanaki and other gurus. The gurus of Sikhism managed to spread their religion, maintain friendships with other religions, delete a caste system that separated rich and poor, and impacted the rights that women have today.
