Sikh Beliefs

Sikhs believe in one God, revealed to mankind through the Guru.  The Sikh view of God is summarized in the mool mantar – an expression used, in full or in abbreviated form, at the start of every collection of verses in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

The Mool Mantar (literally, the root verse; the first hymn composed by Guru Nanak) sums up the basic belief of the Sikhs. Guru Granth Sahib begins with the Mool Mantar. Every Sikh is expected to recite it daily. The Mool Mantar is:


Ik Onkaar
There is only one God

ਸਤਿਨਾਮ
Sat Naam
His Name is Truth

ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖ
Karta Purkh
He is the Creator

ਨਿਰਭਉ

ਨਿਰਵੈਰੁ

He is without hate

ਅਕਾਲ ਮੂਰਤਿ

ਅਜੂਨੀ

ਸੈਭੰ

ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦ
