) Who is a Sikh Bhagat: The term Bhagat refers to a Holy Person who leads a life of spirituality anddedication to God. A Bhagat is an Eastern equivalent to a Christian Saint, a Sant. The word Bhagatcomes from the Sanskrit word Bhakti, which means devotion, love etc.Throughout the history of India there have been saints and thinkers who were dissatisfied with thesuperstitions and the thousands of the religious vagaries of Hinduism. They gradually evolved a belief in one God and preceded Guru Nanak as does the dawn before sunrise.The teachings of these Bhagats, whose words and teachings were included in the Holy Granth by GuruArjan Dev are given the same prominence in the SGGS, the Sikh Holy Book as the teaching of the TenSikh Gurus. Guru Arjan Dev Ji selected the writings of both Hindus and Muslims with equalimpartiality, according to their suitability of his purpose and religious reformation that was Sikhism.
