A portfolio of 7 color plates with an 8-page introduction in Gurmukhi and English with description of paintings selected from several Art Museums.

Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh Panth and the first of the Sikh Gurus, was born in AD 1469 at Rai-Bhoe-Ki-Talwandi, now known as Nankana Sahib, about 65 km west of Lahore (Pakistan). The pandit who cast his horoscope declared after examining the planetary positions at his birth: both Hindu and Turka will revere him, and his name shall reverberate on earth and in heaven.

His father Mehta Kallu Chand belonged to the Bedi branch of orthodox Kshatriyas. Nanak learnt arithmetic and accountancy from his father, reading and writing in Devnagari from a Brahmin, and Persian and Arabic from a Maulvi.

Plates included in this portfolio depict various scenes from the life of Guru Nanak.
