Mulmantar

ca. 18th century
Daroli Bhai, Punjab

Details of the Mulmantar in a old copy of the Guru Granth Sahib kept by the family descendents of Guru Hargobind (1595 - 1644), the sixth Sikh Guru. The Mulmantar is the first stanza of the Guru Granth Sahib and was written by Guru Nanak describing the qualities of the Supreme Being.

"There is One Being, Truth by Name, Primal Creator, without fear, without enmity, Timeless in form, Unborn, Self-existent, the grace of the Guru."
