Basic beliefs of Sikhism


Sikhs believe in one God. He is the same for all people of all religions.


Three Principles of Sikhism

Guru Nanak Dev, the first Sikh Guru, taught three fundamental principles:

  • Kirat Karo - Work hard and honestly
  • Wand Ke Chhako - Share what you have with the needy
  • Naam Jappo - Always remember God throughout the day
