Recognized masterpieces of Indian literature, the Guru Granth Sahib and the Dasam Granth are basic to the Sikh faith, not just within the actual structure of temples and in ceremonies of worship, yet as infallible reference texts providing guidance and instruction.
Teachings of the Sikh Gurus provides a new collection of key passages from those sacred scriptures, translated into glossy English via major specialists, Christopher Shackle and Arvind-pal Singh Mandair. together with six longer compositions and lots of shorter hymns thematically organised by way of subject matters akin to Time and Impermanence, Self and brain, Authority, and Ethics, the book’s available and thoroughly selected extracts distil the essence of Sikhism’s awesome textual and highbrow legacy, depicting how its message of common tolerance matches the modern international. The specific advent and notes to the translations reduction readers’ comprehension of the hymns’ shape and content material, in addition to supplying a few ancient context, making it a fantastic creation to Sikh literature.
