The ten essays in this volume are
divided into four parts. In part one, the first essay deals with the Sikh scriptures,
including Sri Guru Granth Sahib. The second essay discusses in detail,
the vision and mission of Universal Humanhood of Sri Guru Gobind Singhji. In
part two, the essays deal with ‘Sikh Identity’, and show that till today the
struggle for identity is continuing. Part three contains four essays dealing
with the Sikh concepts of ‘creation’, ‘spirituality’, ‘charity’, and ‘suffering
and death’. Part four contains two essays. One dealing with ‘interfaith
dialogue’ offered by Sri Guru Nanak Devji and the last essay on the historical
development of the same process, with special reference to the contribution of
the Sikh community.
This volume will be of great
interest to scholars working on Religion in South Asia in general and Sikh
Studies in particular.
