Storyboard Text

  • Nanak was born in 1469 CE, in a village,00 about 40 miles from Lahore called Talwindi. In honour of Guru Nanak, the town was renamed to Nankana Sahib.
  • Nanak worked in a government office (now called an accountant). Most of the people in the office were Muslims. Nanak enjoyed talking about beliefs with them, and he learned a lot about Islam and Hinduism.    
  • I was with God!
  • You shall be the next Guru
  • Nanak got married when he was 19.  He had a wife and 2 sons. It seemed that he had everything he could want.
  • Nanak went to bathe in the river as usual. But, then he disappered for 2 days. People thought he had drowned. He reappeared on the 3rd day. The first thing he said was 'There is neither Hindu nor Muslim'.
  • Nanak claimed to have been with God. He had a vision that just following a religion. Doing what the religion said or going on pilgrimages or making offerings does not make a person religious. What really matters is the way they live their life. Nanak said that he had been told by God to spend the rest of his life teaching. 
  • In 1539, just before Guru Nanak died he chose one of his closest followers - Lehna - to be the next Guru. He gave him a new name, Angad, which means 'part of me'.
