This work - revival of a book first published half a century earlier - is a kind of spiritual manifesto, affirming author's faith in Sikh scriptures and in the Sikh way of life.
The Sikhs, avers the author, are a unique Spirit Born People whose being betokens a special destiny. It's not as though he claims any elect or elite status for them as a racial group. To him, to be born Sikh or to be baptized in that faith is to assure a passage to Eternity.
The lyrical essay on Guru Nanak's compositions, Asa Di Var and Japu Ji, the reverential readings from Guru Arjun Dev's immortal Sukhmani, the inspired utterances on the mystique of the hair and the mystic variations on Simrin that comprise the present volume are all characterized by an achieved serenity.
All these random reflections stem from a central vision. And that vision, humanist in essence, sums up Sikhism, as he saw it.
