Description

Creation of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind Singh was the greatest achievement of his genius. It laid the foundation of brotherhood. Which produced in the fullness of time, men of uncommon bravery, unique devotion and rare sprit of sacrifice. The Khalsa was inspired by a sense of divine mission to right the wrongs of the world. Moreover, in doing this. Guru never deviated from the path shown by his predecessors. Guru gave sword in the hands of the Khalsa not to establish any political power but to defend the weak and the down trodden and to destroy the armies of the wicked and the tyrants, and to fight the dharm yudh. The Khalsa brought about a socio-cultural transformation in Indian life and thought, of which the hallmarks were liberty, equality and fraternity-values cherished so well by Guru Nanak.

The present volume includes twenty-five articles written by scholars from as diverse fields as history, sociology, philosophy, religion and art. Seven of these articles are directly related to the creation of the Khalsa and eleven on its impact whereas others are on guru’s life, Sikh tenets and theology. Collectively all these articles speak of the spirit behind the creation of the Khalsa-spirit to fulfil Guru Nanak’s Mission.

A multi-disciplinary volume dedicated to the Tercentenary of the birth of the Khalsa, IT will be of immense use and interest to the scholars from different fields.
