Today, marks the death anniversary a leader who has inspired innumerable lives, teaching them to get to the path of spiritual nourishment and inner peace. He is none other than the founder of the sikhs, Guru Nanak Dev, who continued to preach the message of ‘Ik Onkar’ (one God) to people till his last breath.

Nanak was born on April 15, 1469, in Nankana Sahib, Punjab, Pakistan, in the Lahore province of the Delhi Sultanate, however one of the version claims he was born in the Indian month of Kartik or November, known in Punjabi as Kattak.

Nanak's teachings are preserved in the Guru Granth Sahib as 974 poetic hymns, or shabda, with the Japji Sahib (jap, 'to recite, ji and sahib are suffixes expressing reverence), the Asa di Var ('ballad of hope'), and the Sidh Gosht ('conversation with the Siddhas') among the most important prayers. When the Guruship was devolved on to the nine succeeding Gurus, the spirit of Nanak's purity, divinity, and religious authority descended upon them, according to Sikh religious doctrine.
