The Khanda -- a Sikh symbol
The famous American writer and novelist, Miss Pearl S. Buck, after reading the the Sikh
holy book "Guru Granth Sahib," said:
"I have studied the scriptures of the great religions, but I did not
find anywhere else the same power or appeal to the heart and mind, as I find
in these volumes. There is something strangely modern about these scriptures
and this puzzled me until I learned that they are in fact comparatively
modern, compiled as late as the 16th century... They speak to a person of
any religion, or of none. They speak to the human heart and the searching
Sikhism was founded by Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, (1469-1538). At Sultanpur, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, he
received a vision to preach the way to enlightenment and God. He
taught beliefs in a strict monotheism, and the brotherhood of humanity. He rejected idol
worship, and the oppressive Hindu concept of caste.
The name of the religion means learner. According to the Spokesman-Review web site, It is often mispronounced 'seek.' The proper pronounciation is 'sick', with the plural form Sikhs pronounced 'Six.'
