Nanak taught the world that God is within all people. Serving people is then an act of serving God. When we live our lives compassionately, we set the building blocks for a life that is more wholesome and fulfilling. Seva, or selfess service, towards all people is at the center of Guru Nanak’s teachings.

Na Koi Hindu, Na Koi Musalman” Guru Nanak advocated religious tolerance and believed in complete equality for people of every race, religion, caste and gender. He established three practices to promote equality and alleviate suffering – Sangat, praying together, Pangat – eating together, and Langar – free distribution of food to rich and poor alike.
