This article after brief description of the main heading, Sikhi and Sikhism, discusses at length the Eternal Entity (God) conceptualized as a logo, ੴ, by Guru Nanak. The discussion indicates that One in ੴ is ‘That’ (ਓ with extended image is Infinite’ (amount of energy). Therefore, ੴ means ‘One and Only That is Infinite’ (amount of energy) in English and ਇਕੁ ਓ ਬੇਅੰਤ (Ek Oh Beant) in Punjabi. The One in ੴ is not a numeral but Singularity or Nothingness in science but called Ek (One), ਸੁੰਨ (Sunn)) or ਨਿਰਗੁਨ (Nirgun) state of ੴ (the Eternal Entity - God) by Guru Nanak. When this One in ੴ exploded it gave rise to the ਸਰਗੁਨ (Sargun) state, the Nature/Universe.
