Founded by the creators of some of the first Sikh websites ever, The Panthic Network is a volunteer-based group of gurmat-oriented services, organizations and inviduals from around the world. Founded in 2000 as Waheguroo! Network, Panthic Network was built due to an increasing need for unity in the Sikh community and appropriate representation of the Sikh teachings and values. Websites affiliated with the network are dedicated to gurmat education, which is based on the principles taught and the lifestyles lived by the Gurus. The bridges that Panthic Network has built with partner organizations and affiliates speaks for itself. The network includes the following websites, each of which strives to serve the Sikh panth:
