“The Guru’s Word is the Sound-current of the Naad; the Guru’s Word is the Wisdom of the Vedas; the Guru’s Word is all-pervading. The Guru is Shiva, the Guru is Vishnu and Brahma; the Guru is Paarvati and Lakhshmi. Even knowing God, I cannot describe Him; He cannot be described in words.”
Global Hindu Heritage is very happy to inform that we started about 150 Bala Samskar Kendras in five States in India – Assam, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu - to teach about the richness of Hinduism, Hindu festivals, Hindu ethos, Hindu History, and culture and traditions. Sri Rajesh is a very active member in the community championing the Hindu Values not only to the children but also actively involved in making the Hindus proud of their culture.
Our Children are taught about the richness of our culture by teaching about various scriptures and the timeless wisdom found in them.  Our students will learn how Hindus conceive the abstract concept of God, their features, physical features and the divine qualities. We talk about the characteristics of Lord Rama, the attributes and his behavior and the qualities that we can emulate. Many of our Gods are incarnated at different times and we try to explain about different Avataras and the purpose of incarnating at a particular time.

Guru Nanak, the first of the ten Sikh Gurus, was born as Nanak on 15 April 1469 and died on 22 September 1539. His birth is commemorated as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Karthika Poornima.
Guru Nanak traveled throughoutIndia and beyong to impart the teachings of love, peace,, service and mutual respect for all God’s creation. He propagated the tradition of Kirtans, joyously singing of Hymns and experiencing God with Bhakti. 
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said Guru Nanak Dev's vision of a just, compassionate and inclusive society inspires the countrymen.

Guru Nanak, the vice president said, showed us the path of a compassionate virtuous life and an inclusive society.
"May Guru Nanak Dev Ji's eternal message guide us on the path of creating a kind and peaceful world," the Vice President Secretariat tweeted, quoting Dhankhar.
Guru Concept in Sikhism
Gurus are central to Sikhism. All ten Gurus talked about the importance of Gurus.  Guru Grandh Sahib contains so many verses extolling the virtues of Guru.
•    The Guru is the Ladder, the Guru is the Boat, and the Guru is the Raft to take me to the Lord’s Name. The Guru is the Boat to carry me across the world ocean; the Guru is the Sacred Shrine of Pilgrimage; the Guru is the Holy River. If it pleases Him, I bathe in the Pool of Truth, and become radiant and pure. 
•    If there is birth, then there is death. If there is pleasure, then there is pain. If there is enjoyment, then there is disease If there is high, then there is low. If there is small, then there is great If there is power, then there is pride. If there is egotistical pride, then there will be a fall Engrossed in worldly ways, one is ruined Meditating and vibrating on the Lord of the Universe in the Company of the Holy, you shall become steady and stable. Nanak vibrates and meditates on the Lord God.
•    The word Guru holds great significance for Sikhs. Sikhs are guided in their learning by the Guru’s wisdom or understanding, and aspire to live by the Guru’s teachings. A popular understanding of the word Guru is one through whom spiritual darkness (gu) is dispelled by spiritual light (ru), an enlightener.    
Teachings of Guru Nanak
•    Nanak's teachings are documented as a collection of verses in Gurmukhi in the Sikh book Guru Granth Sahib.
•    Guru Nanak and subsequent Sikh Gurus emphasized bhakti (love, "devotion,' or worship,' and taught that spiritual and secular life are inextricably linked.
•    The everyday world is part of an infinite reality in the eyes of the Sikhs, and enhanced spiritual awareness leads to increased and lively engagement in the daily world.
•    Guru Nanak Dev ji established and formalized Sikhism's three pillars:
•    Naam Japna - Guru Nanak taught the Sikhs how to meditate on God through recitation, chanting, singing, and persistent memory, as well as thorough study and grasp of God's Name and attributes.
•    To practice and tread the road of Dharam (righteousness) in actual life. The Sikh's inner thinking is always immersed in praises and appreciation of the Creator and the One eternal god, Waheguru.
•    Kirat Karni - He intended Sikhs to live honorably as homeowners and to practice Kirat Karni, which means earning honestly through physical and mental work while accepting both pains and pleasures as God's gifts and blessings.
•    One must always be genuine and fear none but the Eternal Super Soul.
•    Live a life based on decency and guided by lofty spiritual, moral, and social ideals while immersed in Dharam.
•    Vand Chakna - Vand Chakna Sikhs were encouraged to share their wealth throughout the community by practicing "Share and Consume together."
•    The Sadh Sangat, or community, is an important aspect of Sikhism.
•    One must be a part of a community that lives by the faultless objective values established by the Sikh Gurus, and every Sikh must contribute to the common community pool in whatever way they can.
•    Guru Nanak's key message is one of sharing and giving.
