Sikhism: beliefs about God
The Mool Mantar means 'basic teaching' and is found at the beginning of every section of the Guru Granth Sahib (Sikh Scriptures). It is repeated each day during early morning prayer. The first words of the Mool Mantar are 'Ik Onkar' meaning 'there is one God.
The symbol for Ik Onkar is seen in many places such as badges, on the walls of a gurdwara (place of worship) and in the home.
