This book of essays as its title shows deals primarily with subjects related to Sikh religion and culture. The first four essays form one unit in as much as they delineate the perennial and modern issues facing Sikhism since its inception over five hundred years ago. Some of these have been constantly under focus during the present era and are being hotly discussed by the Sikh society in general and as burning issues, in the political circles.Sikh religion is not so hard to understand as it is to follow. The Sikh path is beset with trials and tribulations, as is evident from its over five-centuries-old history. In simple words, Sikhism means what a Sikh (who literally means a disciple) professes and acts upon in daily life.
