Guru Nanak, a mystic saint of fifteenth-century Punjab, India, was first in the line of the ten Gurus upon whose teachings the Sikh religion was founded. Nanak's poetry boldly declares the oneness and greatness of God, the futility of idol worship and rituals, the importance of devotion to the living Master, and union with the inner sound and light of the Shabd. The book stresses the mystic content of Nanak's teachings: that Nam bhakti (devotion to Name or Shabd) and Guru bhakti (devotion to Guru) are both necessary to travel the spiritual path to union with God. Nanak's hymns communicate the noble beauty and divinity attainable by all humanity, with the Guru's grace and guidance. Drawing from over 100 of Guru Nanak's poems, the book also includes a thorough discussion of the relationship of mysticism and ethics.
