    Sikhism is a religion that began in sixteenth-century Northern India with the life and teachings of Guru Nanak and nine successive human gurus. Etymolgically, the word Sikhism derives from the Sanskrit root śiṣya meaning “disciple” or “learner.” Adherents of Sikhism are known as “ Sikhs ” (students or disciples) and number over 23 million across the world. The Guru Granth Sahib can be truly called the essence of all religions, since it contains hymns and verses from many sacred books of various religions and sects of Hinduism. The Sikhs had ten Gurus in human form and after the tenth Guru it was decided that henceforth the Guru Granth Sahib would become the eleventh Guru and would remain so for.

    The Sikhs believe Nanak's spirit was passed from one guru to the next, " just as the light of one lamp, which lights another and does not diminish ", and is also mentioned throughout their holy book. After Nanak's passing, the most important phase in the development of Sikhism occured with the third successor, Amar Das.   The Guru Granth Sahib is not just a book to Sikhs: it is always treated as a living Guru, so Simran talks about ‘being in the presence of the Guru Granth Sahib.
