Description

Three hundred years passed since the get event of creation of the Khalsa took place in the Shivalik foothills at Anandpur Sahib. Indeed, Guru Nanak, while putting up the authority of his altogether new doctrines before the world, stressed upon the man kind to be ever conscious and alert of the lopsided development of the individual by being only spiritual or totally materialistic.

Simultaneously he produced before people an ideal man gurmukh, whom as he says in Sidha Gosti he was ever searching. This gurmukh could offer his head for the sake of love for the mankind. Sangats were established all around the country and from these sangats, where irrespective of caste colour and creed people accepting fatherhood of one God and brotherhood of all humanity assembled to further what the spark of divinity lying dormant in them, emerged brahmgianis.

In the present times, the Khalsa has spread all over the globe and keeps the standard of Sikh spirit flying high. World over, this event is being commemorated with full gaiety and fervour. We also planned to participate in these celebrations in our own way by publishing standard books on the general theme of creation of the Khalsa. The book in hand is edited by Dr Jodh Singh who after much labor has collected articles of some of the Sikh stalwarts, edited them by giving notes wherever necessary and then added his one introduction where in he has tried to bring out the uniqueness and distinction of Sikh doctrines as postulated in the Guru Granth Sahib, Varan Bhai Gurdas and the Dasam Granth.
