Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj

2. Kirt Karo - Earn your living by honest means
3. Vand Chhako - Share your good fortune with the needy

Started in New Delhi, India, Nanaksar Thath Isher Darbar has a worldwide presence with Sikh Gurdwaras (Temples) in United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India.

The Organisation also has established educational institutions among which Guru Nanak Sikh Academy, Hayes in U.K (www.gurunanakschools.org.uk) and Anand Isher Sr. Sec. Public School, Ahmedgarh, Punjab in India are prominent.

Nanaksar Philosophy

Spiritual culture considers no difference between philosophy and religion because as the saying goes, "To know Him is to love Him." Knowing God is philosophy and loving Him is religion. We can't know Him unless we love Him and we can't love Him unless we know Him.

We all identify ourselves with our body and name. All the successive Holy Gurus identified themselves with the Holy Name of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The tenth Guru - Guru Gobind Singh Ji ordained the Holy Body of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj as Living Sikh Guru.

Nanaksar - Place of worship

Food is the sustainer of life. We can't live without food. We can't find a place where devotees had not gone for collecting, begging for food from the people or their houses. Baba Nand Singh Ji set forth a wonderful divine path, a unique culture and tradition through love and worship of Eternal Sri Guru Granth Sahib as living Guru Nanak. He followed what is exactly written in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj:

"Saachaa Naam Mayraa Aadhaaro
Saach Naam Adhaar Mayraa
Jin Bhukhaa Sabb Gavaa-ee-aa"
…………..Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj(Ang 917)

According to him, one can sustain on the sole support of Naam (meditation). The Holy Place of Baba Nand Singh Ji, Nanaksar was the unique place where offering of money in any form was not allowed. He always emphasized that true Sikh need not to run after charities, money, gifts etc. This deviates us from the path of our journey to the Lord. This place is meant for Naam Simran, Kirtan - hailing glory of the Lord. This is the place called "Nanaksar Bhakti Di Ghar".

He realized through his unlimited and unique love his master Guru Nanak Dev Ji. He experienced in his life that Sri Guru Nanak Sahib lives eternally. He responds and acknowledges physically the loving offerings of the faithful, the believers and the true devotees. With this spirit in mind, Nanaksar serves meal to Sri Guru Granth Sahib five times a day believing it to be the Guru Incarnate.

The whole being of Baba Nand Singh Ji was completely filled with divine romance. His heart was full of the immortal Name of the Lord the flow of which he could not keep up to him as his lord ordained him to spread it throughout the universe. He restored the highest respect, esteem, faith and loving devotion for Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. He carved out a unique spiritual path.

The setting up of SachKhand in its pristine purity and glory, totally free from all the impurities of this materialistic world is being followed in Nanaksar Gurdwaras by his grace.

Baptization - Taking Amrit

The human being always has a wavering mind depending on the senses. He needs some help to conquer these trepidations. In trying to fight the negative sentiments in an individual and society, taking Amrit (Baptization) is an effort that helps in achieving the objective of human life. This encourages practice of right thoughts and right deeds in every aspect of life and makes one bold and courageous to stand up to any challenge, tyranny or injustices.
