Description

The present volume is one of the series of publications that the Punjabi University is bringing out as part of its contribution to the celebrations the Punjabis in general and the Sikhs in particular are holding in connection with the tercentenary of the birth of the Khalsa, that falls on the Baisakhi of 1999. It was on this day in 1699 that Guru Gobind Singh inaugurated the formation of a casteless, classless, egalitarian society of men and women who would be saints in their personal and social lives, but would also be soldiers ever-ready to fight, as and when needed, in the forefront of any struggle against tyranny and injustice.

To provide such a glimpse is the aim of The Sikh Tradition: A Continuing Reality. It is an anthology of essays and articles collected from the past issues of The Journal of religious Studies, brought out by the Guru Gobind Singh Department of Religious Studies. The contributors are scholars of great eminence. These articles are chosen and arranged in such a living and continuing reality. The book may be seen as prefatory and precursory volume to any reading on the Khalsa.
