Sikhism is a monotheistic religion, which began in the 15th century AD in northern India. It is based on the teachings of Guru Nanak and nine successors. This religious philosophy is traditionally known by the name Gurmat (i.e. the teachings of Guru) or Sikh Dharma. The name “Sikhism” comes from the word Sikh, which is derived from the Sanskrit śiṣya root meaning “disciple” or “learner” or śikṣa which means “instruction.” Followers of Sikhism are known as Sikhs.
The main tenet of Sikhism is faith in Vāhigurū (God). Sikhism requires search of salvation through discipline, personal meditation, in the name and the message of God. Ego, attachment, greed, anger and lust are known as “The Five Thieves”, which bring separation from God and can be cured only by intense and unremitting devotion to him. Followers of Sikhism should follow the teachings of the ten gurus (enlightened leaders), as well as their sacred writing, Gurū Granth Sāhib.
Gurū Granth Sāhib is the main religious scriptures of Sikhism, is a voluminous text consisting of 1430 pages that were created during the period of Sikh gurus in 1469-1708, and is a collection of hymns (Shabad) or Baani describing the attributes of God and the necessity for meditation of God’s nām (holy name).
The text is the Bible of Sikhs, and is regarded as the teachings of the Ten Gurus. The presence of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, as guidance/source of prayer is vital in Sikh worship.
