The book draws out a comprehensive picture of Sikh Model of Education based on the educational philosophy presented in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. This model is not limited to the teaching and learning rather it represents an art of complete living. The book also discusses the life and teachings of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism; the educational system of his times; the concept of man and society as education has great concern with man and society; Guru-Chela relationship as these are the two pioneer variables of any teaching process. And last but not the least the role of Sikh Gurdwaras in the field of education, it covers broad spectrum in the present context and it has also seized the space to provide review and suggest directions for further research.It is shocking that the Punjab, the land of Gurus, is lagging behind in the field of education. The survey reports of the international agencies on Punjab’s education system are appalling. The present work can be a beacon of light for the policy makers to change the dismal situation.This well-researched and documented work will interest not only the scholars of education, Sikhism and comparative studies but also general readers as it presents an art of complete living.
