February 27, 2018

What is the significance of Gurus? Though all of us know them, their exact contributions raise questions in the students of Sikhi on a daily basis.

In a new podcast series The 12 Gurus: From 1469 to Infinity, SikhRI sheds light on the lives and meaning of Gurus in Sikhi. Were they spiritualists and reformers or Divine and Revolutionaries? What lessons can we draw from them? How do they teach us to think?

The series introduces Gurus as masters of fine arts, builders of cities, deliverers of justice, coordinators of Seva and an overarching gateway to freedom and equality. It touches on the singular and harmonized Jot and Jugat as well as varied and diverse physical and temporal forms to provide a holistic understanding of the Gurus’ fundamental nature.

  • Formalized the Gurmukhī script
  • Instructed HamāyūM
  • Institutionalized LaOgar
