Sikhism
"By saturating my mind, [The True Name] has satisfied all my longings, and given me peace and happiness."
Sikhism was founded in north India by Guru Nanak around 1500 ACE. Sikhs worship the one God without form through devotion and service, and venerate as their scripture the Guru Granth Sahib, a collection of songs, poems and other writings by the ten Sikh Gurus and other saints, including Hindus and Muslims.
Sikhism The crossed swords represent Sikh strength; the central sword is a symbol of the Sikh understanding of the unity of the divine; the circle shows the connection of the divine and the Sikh community.
