The manuscript of Spirit of the Sikh, as left by Professor Puran Singh, is in three large-sized typed volumes, corrected at numerous places in the author’s hand along with additional matter which suggested itself to him after the typing had been done. This voluminous work was in the process of composition from 1923 to 1930, but because of the fatal illness that came upon the author in 1930, but because of the fatal illness that came upon the author in 1930, the publication of this as also of a good deal of his other work could not be arranged in his lifetime. A group of lyrical essays of homage to the holy Gurus, entitled The Kinship of Ages was completed in 1923-24 and intended for publication the same years as a separate work.
This arrangement could not come through, as the Lahore publisher who was approached, kept silent. The Kinship of Ages has already appeared in this series as Part I of Spirit of the Sikh. The larger work was projected in three volumes, including the Kinship of Ages, which was later included as Part III of volume I (the present volume). This volume is now appearing as volume I of Part II of Spirit of the Sikh, to be followed by its companion volume II.
This work, Spirit of the Sikh, is being brought out by the Punjabi University, Patiala as part of their scheme to present the complete works of Puran Singh on the occasion of the centenary of his birth, which falls in 1981.
