Hello everyone, I've been reading through sikhs.org and came across a page with information on Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The website states, "Guru Nanak then blessed Lehna with his ang (hand) and gave him a new name, Angad, saying 'you are a part of my body.' Guru Nanak placed 5 coins and a coconut in front of Guru Angad and bowed before him." Question: 1. What is the significance/meaning of the 5 coins and coconut?

BasicsofSikhi posted a topic in POLITICS | MEDIA | FEEDBACK | LIFESTYLEVaheguru ji ka Khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki Fateh, Sangat ji, this video is a response to www.sikhoutreach.org which is a Christian Missionary website aiming to convert Sikhs. This is not in itself what concerned us, but what did sicken us was the way that they twisted and misrepresented Gurbani in order to convince simple minded folk about Christianity. A Path of Truth should always seek to speak its own truth and not denigrate others using false statements. The claims they make are that Guru Nanak is a sinner whilst Jesus is free of sin. Anyone who has even read the Sikh scriptures at all will see the praise of Guru repeated throughout. This video is an excerpt from the Japji Sahib Katha sessions on our channel, specifically Pauri 26 where we addressed this claim. We have emailed www.sikhoutreach.org but not heard back from them. As is made clear from the video, the aim of this video is not to incite hate or violence towards the founders of that website but to educate Sikhs about an appropriate response to someone making such an argument to malign any of our Gurus. Please use your energy to help us spread the message of Sikhi rather than attack that website. Someone with strong roots and knowledge of Gurbani will never fall for such a flawed argument.
