Description

Professor Gurbachan Singh Talib’s The impact of Guru Gobind Singh on Indian society is an incisive and perceptive study of the evolution and orientation of certain socio-ethical ideals. According to the author, Sikhism redefined and applied these ideals to mundane human life with such sincerity and fervour as had inspired thousands upon thousands to lay down their lives to uphold them. The author contends that Sikhism gave to this land, for the first time perhaps, the sense of such great values without which individual and corporate life would become vulnerable to moral and social degeneration.

This small book does not profess to be a historical study. The scope of this book is further limited by its not being an exposition of what may be called the philosophy of Sikhism or of the Indian religious tradition in general. Such a philosophical approach would require much more detailed knowledge of sources, particularly in Sanskrit, and an infinitely more abstruse presentation, than is here attempted. With these main limitations, and with the further proviso, that the details of guru Gobind Singh’s Life, and of the preceding gurus are here accepted as they are current among scholars, and have not been investigated afresh. As a matter of fact, biography of the gurus enters only occasionally and indirectly into these pages, as bearing on their teachings and actions.
