Sri Guru Granth Sahib Studies Department of this University has the tradition of holding special lectures by some reputed scholars every year. Guru Nanak Commemorative Lectures and Guru Tegh Bahadur Commemorative Lectures are the two series conducted by the department. The present book The Sikh Perspective of Human Values includes five such special lectures which have brought to light the important facets related with the different aspects of Guru Nanak Dev’s and Guru Tegh Bahadur’s lives and teachings.In the philosophical traditions of the world, religious philosophy occupies a special place because religion has played a great role in the creation, establishment and maintenance of human values. A religion devoid of human values can not be imagined even. The religion propounded by the Sikh Gurus is based on the universal elements and can be termed as the universal religion in its nature and influence.Today world is going through a special kind of ethical crisis. Man is going astray as he has no ideal before him to pursue. It has become a need of the time to present a real picture of religion. The department of Sri Guru Granth Shahib Studies of the University is working in this direction. The Sikh Perspective of human values is an effort in the same line.
