Description

Guru Granth Sahib, acknowledged as the most sacrosanct object, a sacred scripture enjoying profound veneration, carries unrivalled canonical status in the history of religious text. From it, emanates the Panthic identity and coherence. Its doctrinal formulations have stood the rigorous tests of the fast advancing scientific and technological age. Its vision of man and society, visualized by the fist Guru-Guru Nanak and fertilized by his experiences of the world, has become universally acceptable currency of religious discourse. The vision was brightened further by his equally worthy successors. Under all these Great Masters, as is vouchsafed in the Guru Granth Sahib, the traditional social order and culture, along with the religious structure underwent a profound mutation.

A rare combination of precept and practice, thought and action characterized the writings of the Great Masters. It is, infact through the medium of Guru Granth Sahib that this combination is displayed. The religious philosophy as such became intelligible and acceptable to the world at large, most particularly to those sections of Indian society which were debarred from taking to scholarly pursuits. It is because the humanely oriented literary contributions in the Guru Granth Sahib were bestowed with intellectual strength and vitality par excellent.

It is a humble addition to the existing corpus. The more we delve deep into the recesses of life, and engage ourselves in the unraveling process seeking guidance from the Great Masters, humbler we become. Hence it is an endeavour to join the bandwagon of the humble and serviceable.
