Q: If Sikhism is true, why did Guru Nanak's own son abandon it?

A: Guru Nanak Dev had two sons. Sri Chand and Lakhmi Das. Baba Sri Chand was upset he didn't get to be the next guru and that Guru Angad was chosen over him. Thus, he left his home and began to travel. In the time of the 4th Satguru, Guru Ramdas, he visited the Sikhs again and was so impressed by my Satguru, he acknowledged Satguru Ram Das and the previous gurus as the true successors. After this point, Sri Chand became a true Sikh. Baba Sri Chand asked Guru Hargobind Sahib for something to link him and his followers to the Sikh Panth for eternity: a son to adopt. Guru Hargobind then gave Sri Chand Baba Gurditta, who is revered as the successor of Baba Sri Chand. Thus, Sri Chand did not reject Sikhi.
