There is uncertainty around the exact age Guru Nanak was summoned by Akalpurakh (God in Punjabi), bestowed divine knowledge and asked to spread knowledge about God's true form. He was between the age of 27 and 32 when he had the enlightening experience but the most likely age is 27 as noted by historians like Bhai Veer Singh, Principal Satbir Singh and Tirlochan Singh. In the illustrated history of Guru Nanak, SikhComics (www.sikhcomics.com) also mentions 27 as the possible age of enlightenment.
