In this biography, exquisitely illustrated in the Indian miniature painting tradition, young readers learn about Guru Nanakâ€™s life, his spiritual journeys in which he spread his divine message from the Himalayas to present-day Sri Lanka to Mecca, and his teachings as expressed through his daily life and his poetry. Born into a humble Hindu family, Nanak was an extraordinary child who from a very young age questioned the rituals of religion and the ways of the world around him. He grew up to be a great spiritual teacher and revolutionary for his times. His attempt to define a universal humanity resulted in Sikhism Â– a religion that embraces everyone. Singh's version of the guruâ€™s life is based on the janam sakhis (birth stories) as well as the Sikh scriptures.
