Description

The book is a collection of a large number of learned essays all inspired by the life and work and enduring influence of Guru Nanak.

Nanak, whom Tagore called ‘Teacher of Mankind’ had, according to the Poet, a concept of religion not restricted by the limits of unconventional deity-worshiping restrained within the narrow idea and dead habit of a particular caste or country, which prevents universal man to find any identification. Nanak’s mind crossed the barriers of such narrow puranic religious dogmas and he laid down his life in propagating the massage of deliverance among mankind.

In 1969, the whole country celebrated the quincentenary of birth of this Great Teacher. As a part of these celebrations, Sahitya Akademi, in consultation with the Guru Nanak Foundation organized a National and four Regional Seminars on Guru Nanak’s Teachings. It was nothing odd for the Government of a Secular State asking a National Academy of Letters to organize seminars on a person who was not only a religious teacher but an inspired poet,-indeed the fountainhead of Punjabi poetic tradition. Guru Nanak’s poetry, at its mystical sublime, become bani, a prayer, a means of grace.

Again the seminars were organized at a time when disintegrating trends were at its height in the country. Ours is a pluralistic society and it is worth searching the potentiality for creative harmony in the teachings of great lover of mankind like Nanak

Regional Seminars were held in Calcutta, Madras, Bombay and Ludhiana and the National Seminar took place at New Delhi. About 60 Scholars representing a fair cross-section of Indian intellectuals and leaders of thought presented working papers.

The proceedings of the five Guru Nanak Seminars have been edited and published in this volume to give a permanent form and offer a National Homage on the occasion of Nanak’s fifth birth centenary celebrations. Among the contributors to this volume are Niharranjan Ray, Trilochan Singh. Raghvan, K.G. Saiyidain, Mulk Raj Anand, K.R. Srinivasa Iyengar and Suniti Kumar Chatterji. Besides papers, a Section includes Dr. Suniti Kumar Chatterji’s Sanskrit Poem with his own English translation, Srimati Amrita Pritam’s Punjabi poem as translated into English by Sri Suresh Kohli and three poems on Nanak from three Bengali Poets, Premendra Mitra, Bimal Chandra Ghosh and Manindra Ray.
