Storyboard Text

  • Nanak lived in a small village in India. His father was a very strong Hindu. Nanak believed he was chosen by God to do his deeds on Earth. 
  • One day Nanak let all the cows eat the poor man's crops whilst he was meditating. His father was very angry but God regrew the crops in a matter of seconds. From that moment, Nanak knew he that God had chosen him.
  • Nanak wanted to be closer to God so he waded into a river and stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights. His sister Nanaki and his friend waited on the banks. They thought he was dead. 
  • Nanak traveled all over Asia, telling people about God and what he wanted people to do. Rich men brought him lavish feasts for him to eat but he made them share it with all the poor and untouchable people. He only ate the food that the poor people who had made themselves offered him. He taught people that they were all equal in Gods eyes, and they should all treat each other equally.
  • Nanak was taken prisoner. The Emperor who had imprisoned him was a man of God and when Nanak told him that God could see all that he was doing, he prayed for forgiveness and set  1000 prisoners free including Nanak.
  • On the day he died, Nanak told the Muslims to lay flowers on his right and Hindus on the left. Whichever flowers were still grown in the morning would determine how he was buried. All the flowers survived.
