Sikhism is a monotheistic relgion prevalent in India mainly in the region of Punjab. Guru Nanak Dev Ji is considered the founder of Sikhism. Sikhism is derived from the word "Sikh" which means "disciple". In simple terms, Sikhism refers to a Guru (master) and disciple tradition. However, with passage of time, it took the form of a reglion. Guru Nanak Dev ji is the first Guru of this Guru-disciple tradition. From Guru Nanak Dev ji onwards there have been nine successors making ten gurus in this lineage. Guru Gobind Singh ji is the last guru of Sikhism. Beyond him there has been no living guru. Guru Gobind Singh ji ordained the Guru Granth Sahib to be the Guru beyond him and that is how it has continued to be. Sri Guru Granth Sahib is a revered scripture of Sikhism which has speeches of many Gurus and Bhagats (worshippers). Around 40% speech in Guru Granth Sahib ji is by Lord Kabir.
