Premonition of Guru Nanak Birth

In the Hindu epic the Rig Veda In Mandala 7, Ush 5, Mantra 5 of Guru Nanak and the clan he belongs to is recorded “For the preaching of religious ways and the earning of good karma, there will manifest Guru Nanak from the clan of the Veithees” In the Bhavekhath Purana “Baavekhath” means “future foretelling”. There are also places where the advent of Guru Nanak is directly alluded to.
“In the Kali Yuga when goodness in the world is deteriorating there will appear a Prophet from the Beithi clan named Nanak who from birth will be endowed with extra-ordinary spiritual power. He will preach on the nobility of life and the eradication of the sinful ways”
“The Guru of the prophets, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv ji is God almighty himself. This very Creator will manifest

itself as a human, in the form of one whose name will be Nanak”
Also recorded is the following detailed assertiveness about Nanak and the type of mission and work he shall perform. It appears to emanate from the Godhead itself.
“The Kali Yuga shall dawn on Earth with radical manisfestation of destruction of Karma and Dharma to such an extent that every situation shall be colored by sinful activities. At that distressful moment, the Creator shall send down a spiritual luminary in the form of Nanak from the Khatria clan.
He will spread the message of Naam, the Holy life Force, by introducing the primacy of meditation and thus washing clean the sinful ways by the waters of love.”
In the Vishnnu Purana there is recorded an dialogue between Vishnu and the Rishi Umbreek. Vishnu is said to have informed Umbreek that he will once again take birth in the Kali Yuga. The Rishi then enquired when about will that be and what will be your name then? Vishnu replied that this will happen when the Kali Yuga has proceeded for 4500 years and that I will take birth in the Shatri Sooraj Bansi clan, when I will be named, Nanak “Sri NANAK will once again appear in the world in a variety of incarnations; this is for sure, this is for sure, this is for sure.”
It was during the time when the world was plunged into the dark world of ignorance, feudal tyranny and oppression, religious and cultural strife, that Siri Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism, took his birth. Celestial music resounded in heaven. Almighty host of gods, thus, hailed his birth, God has come to save the trouble peace of the people of all communities. He came to preach brotherhood and humanitarianism irrespective of caste, creed, colour nor economic status. He brought vision of a common humanity to a society which had become a place of violence and strife. He had faith in humanity. For him, love of God implied love for his creation. Service of humanity indicates one’s love for God.
