It is said that Guru Nanak was drawn towards spirituality, religious beliefs, cleanliness, humankind, commitment and benefits since child years. He soon noticed what he was intended to do and so he left his family. Guru Nanak was significantly influenced by Hindu and Muslim religions and so made a decision to become an ascetic . He was the one who began telling the people: ‘There is no Hindu or Mussalman religion’.
It is said that while Guru Nanak was having a bath in the river Baain, he vanished and reappeared after 3 days. It is said that he was in immediate interaction with the Almighty. Nanak was the one who always sat with holy books and was the truly amazing saint  who preached humanity amongst humans. His primary aim was to teach to the simple individuals about pride, honor, respect and humanity.
