Sikhism History
A religion founded by Guru Nanak in 1469 and developed over the next 240 years by nine successive Gurus, the last and the tenth Guru being 'Sri Guru Gobind Singh.' In 1699 Guru Gobind Singh created 'Khalsa' and the 'Living Guru' called 'Sri Guru Granth Sahib.' Khalsa is a pure Sikh who has been baputised in accordance with the 'paul of Khanda' and follow the sikh rehit and conventions.
