Nanak Naam Chardi Kala, teraa bhane sarbat da bhala.
Nanak, with Naam comes Chardi Kala and with your blessings, peace for everyone.
To put this in very concise and clear language, the term invokes the Sikh to request, pray and ask the Almighty for the well-being of all of humanity, prosperity for everyone in the worldwide community, global peace for the entire planet.
A Sikh selflessly prays daily for "all to prosper"'. This gesture comes from the clear and pure teaching of Gurbani (Sri Guru Granth Sahib) and forms the Gurmat code of conduct. Gurbani tells us that there are "no others", "there is only One". The same "One God resides within all". We are "all the children of that One God". As the potter makes pots of different forms and colours from the same basic clay; and as the goldsmith moulds jewellery of various types, colours and shapes from the same single homogeneous material, gold; similarly, we are all born of the same One Light: "There is no difference".
Guru Nanak founded Sikhism. He felt the Divine Call at the age of 38 and then decided to dedicate his whole life to the service of God and humanity. Visiting different places in Punjab, he spread the doctrine of love and equality. Also a poet and musician, he composed several hymns, which were subsequently included in the Guru Granth Sahib. A social reformer as well, he tirelessly toiled to uplift the downtrodden and fought against the oppression of women.
