  • Guru Nanak was born in 1469 in a village called Talwandi in the Punjab region. This village is now called Nanakana Sahib (Nanak's village). Punjab is now split between India and Pakistan.

  • Even when Nanak was young, he was a very spiritual person. He spent lots of time praying and thinking about God. His father wanted him to work as a businessman, but Nanak preferred to meditate and to help the poor.

  • He saw that Muslims and Hindus in Punjab did not like or respect each other. Although he was brought up as a Hindu, Nanak also had Muslim friends, because he believed that all people were brothers and sisters, no matter what their religion.
