    Sikhism is a religion that began in sixteenth-century Northern India with the life and teachings of Guru Nanak and nine successive human gurus. Etymolgically, the word Sikhism derives from the Sanskrit root śiṣya meaning “disciple” or “learner.” Adherents of Sikhism are known as “ Sikhs ” (students or disciples) and number over 23 million across the world. The Sikh Holy Book (Guru Granth Sahib) is the perpetual Guru, there is no place in Sikhism for a living Guru today. "The bani is the preceptor and the preceptor is the bani, All the nectars are present in the bani: If the faithful follows the bani of the preceptor, The preceptor himself helps him in .

    Sikhism - Sikhism - Sikh literature: There are two granths, or volumes, that stand out above all others in the Sikh religion: the Adi Granth (“First Book”)—unquestionably the greater of the two—and the Dasam Granth (“Tenth Book”). The Adi Granth, as discussed above, is believed by Sikhs to be the abode of the eternal Guru, and for that reason it is known to all Sikhs as the Guru. Containing the 11th Guru Nanak Memorial Lectures to Punjabi University, which were delivered in and hailed as a turning point in the study of the Sikh Gurus' message, this study relates the ideas of the holy Gurus to the ideas of both Western thinkers and ancient Indian visionaries. This philosophic work expresses with clarity and precision the Sikh Gurus' questions about God, immortality.
