Akali Guru Nanak was then succeeded by Akali Guru
Akali Guru Angad Dev Ji Maharaj
The second great Sanatan Sikh Guru introduced the Gurmukhi script
and turned places of worship into centers for education and increased
literacy amongst the masses
He continued the same work from where Guru Nanak Dev
left off and spend many an hour in the 'Langar' (free kitchen).
He further introduced the 'Gurmukhi' Punjabi script to the illiterate
Sikhs. Then, alongside he also spiritually catered for his followers.
He set up wrestling Akhara’s
(training arenas) for the youth and introduced them to the physical
exercises of 'Viriyam' to make their bodies strong.
In Guru Angad’s thinking a strong, fit body and mind was required
to be a Sikh, a searcher of truth.
