THE FOUNDER OF THE WORLD’S YOUNGEST RELIGION OF SIKHS, GURU NANAK, THE WISEST IN OUR ERA JUST 550 YEARS AGO RE-INVENTED THE AGE OLD INDIAN TRADITION TO MAINTAIN THE EARTH’S BALANCE. HE SAID JUST RETURN A HANDFUL FROM YOUR SHARE OF WATER TO MOTHER EARTH WITH THE AFFIRMATION THAT THE LAND AROUND YOU REMAINS GREEN, FERTILE AND FREE FROM DROUGHTS AND INUNDATION. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO COOL DOWN EARTH AND FIGHT POLLUTION. HE ALSO STARTED THE CONCEPT OF LANGARS (COMMON KITCHENS) FOLLOWED BY ALL SIKH TEMPLES (GURUDWARAS) WHERE THERE IS NO COLOR, CREED OR RELIGIOUS INDIFFERENCE. IN ONE STROKE HE RAISED HIS FOLLOWERS ABOVE UN TOUCHABILITY AND CASTE SYSTEM IN INDIA. GURU NANAK BELIEVED THAT IF HUMANS JUST SHARED WATER AND FOOD NO MAN MADE MISERY WILL HAPPEN AND A NATURAL PACT OF HUMANS WITH THE NATURE WILL GET FORGED. GURU NANAK SHOWED US A CLEAR PATH WITH HIS EXCLUSIVE INVOCATION “ANAHAT AARTI” TO PROMOTE OUR BELIEF IN ONE GOD FOR ALL.
