KALIAN SUD, a resident of Lahore, was a, soldier by profession. He once waited on Guru Arjan, and, as records Bhai Man! Singh, Sikhdn di, Bhagal Maid, began relating his feats on the field of battle. The Guru said, "It is easy to wield a weapon in the field of battle, but a true soldier is one who overcomes such foes as ignorance, lust, anger, avarice, and worldly attachment. Humility is his armour and God`s Name his only weapon." Kalian learnt to be humble and fell at the Guru`s feet. He received initiation at the hands of the Guru.

World Gurudwaras

World Gurudwaras will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
