Description

In his earlier book Philosophy of Guru Nanak, the author had briefly made a comparative study of the thought-content of Guru Nanak with the living religions of the world. The religion, which has a scripture of its own, a distinct set of injunction and a tradition, may be called a living religion. In this sense, there are eleven living religions in the world, namely Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism in India, Zoroastrianism, Judiasm, Christianity and Islam in the Middle East, Taoism and Confucianism in China and Shintoism in Japan.

Out of these religions, Shintoism has its following confined in Japan, Taoism and Confucianism in China and Jainism in India. Other religions have spread far and wide besides the country of their origin, therefore have been included in the category of major world-religions. Several concepts belonging to both philosophy and religion of Sikhism have been discussed briefly in his book Outlines of Sikh Thought.
