This book comprises English translation of the first two ragas - Sri and Majh - from the Sacred Volume.To capture the essence and rhythm of Sabda, the holy word, is an uncommonly elusive task. But Prof. Teja Singh had a rare genius for translation. He had all his life studied and reflected upon the bani, inspired, utterance, and he combined literary insight with his imposing erudition. Equally, his mastery of the English idiom was unexcelled. His rendering in this volume, fresh and faithful, brings to a wide circle of readers the true spirit of the Word.Prof. Teja Singh's English translations of the holy hymns had become classics in his life time. Especially prized in those days was his translation of the Sukhmani, The Psalm of Peace. In his later years, he put up hands to a full-scale rendering of the Guru Granth Sahib, the Light of the World. Unfortunately, the work remained unfinished. The incomplete manuscript which he left has come to the Punjabi University and has now been put into print.
