1.5.2 Nanak was born into a Hindu family where in the village, Hindus and Muslims lived together. When he was born, he is said not to have cried, but to have smiled. He also had a halo. A priest said he would be a king or a Guru. This shows that he was a good and holy person (the halo). He was also very special. Nanak wasn't very interested in school, he preferred to sit and think about God. This shows that he was definitely very holy, and loved God very much. When Nanak was a teenager, his father gave him a lot of money to spend on things to sell. However, on the way there, he met 20 starving holy men. He spent all of his money on them and his father was very angry. This shows that he really felt strongly about God, and it teaches Sikhs that money can't make you happy, but helping others can. The word 'Guru' means teacher. When Guru Nanak said "There is no Hindu, there is no Muslim." He was trying to teach the fact that they both believe the same thing, they just see it differently.
