April 15, 1469, three hours before dawn, the village of Talwandi, about forty miles south-west of Lahore, witnessed the birth of one of the greatest spiritual leaders of all times. At the time of the child’s birth, a flash of light filled the home of his father Mehta Kalu Chand Bedi and his mother Tripta. When he took his first breath, the child gently laughed like a saint.The first Sikh Guru, Nanak, was born in a society that was in the grip of religious orthodoxy and empty ritualism. Society was further crippled by female-infanticide, child marriage, subordination of women and a rigid caste system. A gifted child and deeply spiritual from an early age, Guru Nanak amazed his teachers by quickly learning the alphabet and the scriptures. He was soon composing poems in praise of God. Before he entered his teens, Guru Nanak began to question the traditional religious ceremonies and superstitions of people around him.Believed to have attained enlightenment around the age of twenty-seven, Guru Nanak spent the next twenty-three years travelling as far as Sri Lanka, Tibet, Assam and Mecca to spread his message.Guru Nanak and his teachings brought in a period of social change, and spiritual and religious enlightenment. His message was simple and based on ethics, social responsibility and, social justice. He asked his followers to worship one God, control worldly desires, treat everyone equally, work honestly, share with the less fortunate, and serve the community. His followers were to refrain from any outwardly display of piety and ritualism.Guru Nanak was a divinely inspired poet. His teachings come to us in 974 hymns composed by him. This divine poetry is compiled in the Sikh holy book, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib and is considered the revealed word of God by his followers.This is the first volume in a series of five books. It covers Guru Nanak's life from birth until his enlightenment.*Learn about Sikh History through Graphic Novels (Comic Books)*Enjoyable for both children as well as adults*Authentic stories compiled after extensive research*Inspiring stories and attractive illustrations depict the teachings and lives of the Sikh Gurus and Heroes*Gripping tales of bravery and sacrifice*Appropriate quotes from Sri Guru Granth Sahib enhance learning

Noble work Well written. I am reading it to my 6 yr old son. For his age some of the text is complex to comprehend. By simplifying it, it's giving me a great platform to introduce Guru Nanak & Sikhism to my son. Reliving my childhood in the process :-)
Guru Nanak This first volume of four comics discussing the life and teachings of the first Sikh Guru is a great way of leaning about the beginnings of Sikhism.
awesome book Very nice combinng guru sahib sakhi/history with pointers to gurbani. Very good research and presentationmin easy reading format. Recommend increasing size of font in comics.
Religious Book Its was very religious experience and soul touching. I will recommend to all with kids and family. Book is precious part of my collection.
My long awaited dream comes true! I always felt the scarcity of good quality resources on Sikh history for my son but Sikh Comics has filled that gap! Now not only my son but all my relatives and friends love it because I have made it a habit to gift these books to them on festive occasions. The paper quality, graphics and dialogues all are very well done. The best part is that it covers that historical aspects in a way which is crisp, informative as well as ties you to till the end. I have bought all their 6 titles and waiting for more. I'm glad that what we missed in our childhood, our kids are not going to.
