This monograph deals with the variant metaphysical aspects of Sikh Religion. Metaphysics is a science of the Real and it undertakes a search for Truth or Reality. This monograph begins with the Oneness of Ultimate Reality with its Attributive Aspect and proceeds to its experience through faith and expression through symbolism.
The most significant metaphysical issues viz., human existence, problem of evil, immortality of soul and man's voyage from transmigration to emancipation are vividly explained.
It presents not only conceptual analysis but also indicates guidelines for spiritual transformation. A metaphysical analysis of the problem of human and mental tension is done along with its remedy as is suggested in Sri Guru Grant Sahib. The problem f non-duality between man's actions and God as the only Doer is expatiated in dealing with the Divine Will and human freedom.
The Sikh metaphysics is not an abstract unity but it integrates the spiritual and temporal aspects. The spiritual unity and social vision of the Gurus is explicit throughout the Holy Scripture and its culmination is evident in the creation of Khalsa, which is based on the ontological principle of One God.
