Nanakshahi Samvat > Era of the *King Nanak* / Rey Nanak
Explanation:
Hola, Gaby.

"April 14 - Vaisakhi - Celebrated throughout India, Vaisakhi has special importance for Sikhs. On this day in 1699, Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru, created the Khalsa Panth, the “Brotherhood of the Pure.” Each Khalsa brother is given the name Singh (lion), and each sister Kaur (princess). In 1999, the Khalsa Era was replaced with the *Nanakshani Era*.

Mar.14. - Hola Mohalla - In Sikhism it is the first day of the year 532 of the Nanakshahi Samvat (“Era of the King Nanak”) according to the Nanakshahi solar calendar instituted January 1, 1999. Sikhs calculate the new era from the birth of the first Guru, Nanak Dev Ji, in 1469".

Who was Guru Nanak
(The Man of All Milleniums, Past, Present, And Future)

Let us examine the Vaar of Ramkali uttered by Rai Balwand and Satta the Drummer (Page 966) as to what do they record as to who was Guru Nanak. The following is the abridged English version of most of the lines pertaining to our subject, deduced by in-depth study of 3English translations and taking the help of 3 Panjabi \"steeks\" or translations: -

\"When the creator Himself decides, then his order cannot be judged.

Nanak established the Kingdom of the Lord. He built the fortress of Truth on strong foundation. He installed the Canopy (Royal Crown) over Lehna’s head, who chanting the Lord’s praises drank the Ambrosial Nectar.\"

\"The Guru (Nanak) implanted the Almighty Sword of the Teachings to illuminate his (Lehna’s) soul.\"

\"The Guru bowed down to His disciple while Nanak was still alive. **The King (Nanak)** while still alive applied the ceremonial mark to his forehead. Nanak proclaimed Lehna’s succession as a reward of his service.\"

disagree  Sergio Aguirre: 2 puntos me parecen muy poco.
1 hr
  -> jejeje... ¡qué susto! Pensé que había puesto un disparate. Muchas gracias, Sergio, pero los puntos no me importan, en serio. Que tengas un buen día ;))

agree  agtranslat: Peculiar reference, first time I come across "King" Nanak. Ordinarily Sikhs refer to him as Guru Nanak, certainly in India. Further reading: http://www.gurugobindsingh.net/historyofsikkhism4.htm
6 hrs
  -> you are right. I was surprised when I discovered the meaning of "shahi" (royal). I had always heard of "Guru Nanak" reading about India, but... Thanks a lot and have a nice day! :)
