The Ten Gurus

The Founders of Sikhism

The Gurus in Sikhism, a lineage of spiritual leaders, played a pivotal role in shaping the religion's principles and practices. The Gurus emphasized the oneness of God and equality among all, regardless of social status and propagated education and introduction the Gurmukhi script. Alongside these pursuits, the Gurus also promoted social equality, particularly for women, and introduced the concept of langar (community kitchen). The Gurus also effectively established the Khalsa, a community committed to discipline and equality. He declared the Guru Granth Sahib as the eternal Guru, concluding the line of human Gurus. Collectively, the Gurus guided Sikhs towards principles of equality, justice, selflessness, and devotion, shaping Sikhism into a vibrant and compassionate faith.
