Earliest Sikh Beliefs
At 13 years of age, Guru Nanak was to go through the rite of passage ceremony wherein a young Hindu male moves from childhood to adulthood. When the time came to accept a sacred thread from the priest, he refused it and recited a poem prizing the right action and compassionate thoughts about symbolic objects.
For several years, Guru Nanak remained in his village, teaching the basics of Sikhism. At the age of 30, however, he knew the time had come to share the message of God with people throughout India and even into distant lands. With his friend Mardana, a talented musician, Guru Nanak delivered his messages in musical hymns. At each place, he set up manjis, local cells or small religious groups. In this way, he delivered the message of Sikhism to many people across the nation.
