This work discusses the predicament in which modern man finds himself placed. The author sees a retreat to religion as an inevitable consequence, and lends evidence of fresh and original thinking.
‘Sikhism for the Modern Man’ discusses the predicament in which modern man finds himself place, Numerous discoveries of far-reaching consequence, made in the fields of Natural Sciences and accumulation of vast amount of scientific knowledge during the last couple of centuries, had shaken man’s faith in religious dogma. This is particularly so in respect of the genesis of the universe, its expanse and nature, which man had been taught to believe and marvel at. Various faiths have had their own fanciful notions on this account. Disturbed in his faith by new discoveries and prompted by material advancement in science, the modern man sought to build for himself kingdom of heaven on earth. This gave rise to different types of political systems each aiming at Utopia. But these advances too soon shattered his dreams and added to his frustrations.
The author sees a retreat to religion as an inevitable consequence. It is in this perspective that the message of universal teachings of Sikhism has a special relevance.
