History

Sikhism was born in 1469 by Guru Nanak, Guru Nanak was born in the village of Rāi Bhōi dī Talwandī, now called Nankana Sahib In Modern Day Pakistan His parents were Hindus In 1539, Guru Nanak chose his disciple Lahiṇā as a successor to the guruship rather than either of his sons. Lahiṇā was named Guru Angad and became the second guru of the Sikhs. Nanak conferred his choice at the town of Kartarpur on the banks of the river Ravi. Sri Chand, Guru Nanak's son was also a religious man, and continued his own commune of Sikhs. His followers came to be known as the Udasi Sikhs - the first parallel sect of Sikhism that formed in Sikh history.The Udasis believe that the Guruship should have gone to Sri Chand, since he was a man of pious habits in addition to being Nanak's son. In 1504 Guru Angad became the second Guru of the ten Sikh GurusGuru Angad, before joining Guru Nanak's commune, worked as a pujari (priest) and religious teacher centered around Hindu goddess Durga. On Nanak's advice, Guru Angad moved from Kartarpur to Khadur, where his wife Khivi and children were living, until he was able to bridge the divide between his followers and the Udasis. Guru Angad continued the work started by Guru Nanak and is widely credited for standardising the Gurmukhi script as used in the sacred scripture of the Sikhs. In 1552 Guru Amar Das became the third Guru. at the age of 73. Guru Amar Das adhered to the vaishnavism tradition of Hinduism for much of his life, before joining the commune of Guru Angad. Goindval became an important centre for Sikhism during the guruship of Guru Amar Das. He was a reformer, and discouraged veiling of women's faces. He encouraged the Kshatriya people to fight in order to protect people and for the sake of justice, stating this is Dharma. Guru Amar Das started the tradition of appointing manji (zones of religious administration with an appointed chief called sangatias), introduced the dasvandh ("the tenth" of income) system of revenue collection in the name of Guru and as pooled community religious resource, and the famed langar tradition of Sikhism where anyone, without discrimination of any kind, could get a free meal in a communal seating. The collection of revenue from Sikhs through regional appointees helped Sikhism grow. In 1534 Guru Ram Das became the fourth guru. He moved his commune of Sikhs there and the place then was called Ramdaspur, after him. This city grew and later became Amritsar  the holiest city of Sikhism. In In 1581 Guru Arjan youngest son of Guru Ram Das became the 5th Guru. Guru Arjan is remembered in the Sikh for many things. He built the first Harimandir Sahib (later to become the Golden Temple). He was a poet and created the first edition of Sikh sacred text known as the Adi Granth and 1606 he was killed and tortured by the} Mughals.
