Description

This work on the life and ideals of Guru Gobind Singh is a singular contribution on the subject, and is based on the original sources. The complete life of the Guru has been presented through two sources, viz, Bachittar Natak, an autobiography of the Guru upto AD 1696 and Sri Gur Sobha by the court-poet Sainapat, who completed his work in AD 1771, three years after the passing away of the Guru.

The ideals of the Guru are revealed through the anecdotes of his life given in Sau Sakhi and Parchian Sewa Das, through the injunctions, Rahat Namas recorded by Bhai Prahlad Singh, Bhai Nand Lal, Bhai Desa Singh, Bhai Chaupa Singh and Bhai Daya Singh, and through the poetic compositions of the great preceptor which include Jap Sahib, Chaupai, Ten Sawayyas, Shabad Hazare, Zafar Nama, and Fateh Nama.

These works have been rendered into English by the author himself. Thus this book brings forth the personality of the Guru through his own sayings and reveals him as a great reformer, litterateur, spiritual leader and an unparalleled warrior.
