Sikhism was founded by Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji in 15th century Northern India. Sikhism comes from the word Sikh, which in turn comes from the Sanskrit
root śisya meaning "disciple" or "learner", the world, and is generally considered the fifth largest organized religion.

Sikhism recognizes God as the singular Supreme Being but does not believe He has ever taken human form. God is eternal and He is not bound by space.
God reveals Himself through people known as Gurus. Each Guru is one with God and delivers God's message to humans, all of whom are considered
equal to each other regardless of race or gender.

There are no rituals in Sikhism but they do believe in Baptism, known as Amrit, as a sacred and important part of Sikh life. A Baptized Sikh lives the lifestyle
as described above and remains focused on its way to be One with God. This lifestyle includes vegetarianism and refrain from alcohol and drugs.

Heaven and hell are real in Sikhism. Good deeds get you into Heaven but if you are sent to hell you are given another chance through reincarnation until such
time as one lives a life worthy of Heaven.
