Guru Nanak
The founder of Sikhism and the first of ten Sikh gurus, Nanak (1469-1539 CE) was an Indian man from what is now Punjab, Pakistan.

[Guru Nanak]
Born in what is today Punjab, Pakistan of the Delhi Sultanate (an Islamic empire) to Hindu parents, where he showed intelligence and an interest in the divine from a miraculously young age. Stories say, at the age of 7, he astonished his teacher by explaining the symbolism of the letter aleph (ا) as relating to the unite of a single God. Another story says as a napping child, a cobra provided shade for his head.
In 1487, Nanak married Sulakhani, with whom he had two sons. As an adult, he travelled far throughout the world. In 1496, he visited Tibet, South Asia, and Arabia. He paid special attention to locations important to religions--Mount Sumeru, Multan, and Mecca. Sources state he traveled to Bengal, Jerusalem, Vatican, Azerbaijan, and Sudan.
Nanak's teachings are written in the Sikh scripture, called the Guru Granth Sahib.

[The Khanda, the symbol of Sikhism]
Sikhism is now the world's sixth-largest religion. It focuses on impacting the world in positive ways and keeping goodness and God in your thoughts. The three pillars of Nanak's teachings practised are: Vand Shhako, 'share and consume' (sharing with those in need) Kirat Karo, 'work honestly' (making a living without exploitation or fraud) Naam Japo, 'recite His name' (meditating on God's name)
It also focuses on Simran, spiritual contemplation while doing Sewa, selfless service.
Sikhism contrasts the Five Thieves that steal common sense (lust, wrath, greed, attachment, ego) with the Five Virtues (truth, contentment, compassion, humility, love).

Whumptober Day 6: Hunger
Skyrim
Characters: Ko'va (khajiit oc), Nanak. Delphine and Muz-Lari are mentioned.
Rating: G/T
Ko’va stared hard at the carving on the wall. Sky Haven Temple was practically a work of art. She wanted to examine the markings to find out what history or words were carved there, but irritation kept distracting her.
“Did something happen?”
Ko’va’s ears turned backwards at the sound of Nanak’s voice.
“What makes you say that,” she asked as the slightly shorter male came to stand next to her.
“Your tail,” Nanak replied. “It’s still moving.”
Ko’va’s ears flicked sheepishly. She tried to force her tail to stay still. But after a moment it continued to flicker.
“Sorry, I’m just a little annoyed.” Ko’va paused, but decided to finish. “And worried.”
“Is it serious?”
“ I don’t know,” Ko’va replied. “ Delphine came to talk to me. She asked me if I noticed Dreamer acting differently. Like if she was acting more selfish or aggressive.”
“That seems odd,” Nanak said as his whiskers twitched thoughtfully. “What brought this on?”
“She’s concerned that the dragon blood in Dreamer is becoming too strong. Or something like that.”
“Well I guess I can see why that could be a problem. Dragons are hungry creatures, even at the best of times.”
“We all have some type of hunger, Nanak. You know that.”
“That’s fair.”
“Besides, that’s not the problem,” Ko’va continued. “The problem is I don’t think we can trust Delphine anymore.”

“Our hero, our hero Claims a warrior's heart I tell you, I tell you The Dragonborn comes”
Bard’s love to sing and tell their tales. After frequenting many taverns, Dar’sha and Inigo’s travels brought them to Solitude to check on this Bard’s College they heard about. There they met a Khajiit named Nanak who had a passion for knowledge and books. The three of them worked together to collect lost book verses and missing instruments to bring back to the college. Through this, they were able to gain the approval of the Queen to allow for the Burning of Olaf festival to take place again. Much music, drinking, and eating was had. Before leaving, Dar’sha promised Nanak that she would bring him any interesting books she stumbles across in her travels.
Inigo even got a bit excited about being in such a creative place. Dar’sha didn’t know he had a passion for music, but he made that clear after a few drinks. Before leaving, she purchased him a lute so he can sing and dance whenever he feels like it.
