Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s blessed trail in Kapurthala

Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of the Sikh faith, was one of the greatest spiritual leaders of all time. Raised in a Hindu home and conversant with Islamic traditions, the Guru had a deep understanding of spirituality and his teachings were original and continue to be relevant and universal to this date. His teachings, expressed through remarkable poetry, speak of equality, brotherhood and peace. He laid down a set of guiding principles that he believed led to a spiritually fulfilling life, and these are followed by millions of Sikhs globally.

Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji moved to Sultanpur Lodhi at the behest of his elder sister Bebe Nanki. The siblings enjoyed a deep affectionate bond that would last till the end of her life. She was the first to recognise the extraordinary and unconventional genius of her younger brother. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji needed no persuasion to relocate, and soon took up employment as a manager of stores for the local ruler, Daulat Khan. Sultanpur Lodhi is a sacred site that saw the young Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji find his enlightenment and emerge as a Guru.
