Description : This work is an inquiry Into the philosophic position of Sum Nanak -- a great savant of the fifteenth-century Punjab and spiritual mentor of the Sikh faith. The book makes a scholarly presentation of the doctrines of humanism in the classical as well as contemporary Western and Indian philosophies, besides giving a synoptic view of the growth of humanism since the Renaissance. It vividly brings out Guru Nanak's concept of Man and human self vis-á-vis his conception of God and vision of supreme reality. The author gives his appraisal of Guru Nanak as a thinker, poet and philosopher. He examines the Guru's approach to the essentially human issues of community, life, personal salvation and the choice and promotion of values; in the context of present-day theories of existentialism, naturalism, Marxism and philosophy of culture. He pays special attention to Indian Idealism and varieties of mysticism, in order to construct an adequate conceptual framework of Guru Nanak's philosophy of religion. According to the author, humanism of the Guru is well reconciled to his theism; conflict between the two is completely resolved.

Description : Description: 'Wonders are many but none more wonderful than man.' Great indeed is man; it appears that the macrocosm is in the microcosm of man's body. He is an old and eternal philosophical problem, which has always been a challenge to thinkers. The author in her present work carries out an in-depth study of the Sikh scriptures with a view to present a systematic exposition of the concept of man in Sikhism. After presenting a brief account of the Sikh history and philosophy, she set forth the Sikh views covering various dimensions and aspects of man, viz. nature and constitution of man; his position in relation to God, universe and society; purpose of his existence, and attainment of summum bonum. According to the Sikh view, man is an integral unity of matter, like, mind and spirit. He is the central figure in the universe. Because spirit and self-consciousness is fundamental in him, he alone has the capacity of freeing himself from matter and mind, and of involution leading to the focus of his Being. His infinite creative power and his capacity to deepen his inwardness endows him with the potentiality to realise the Absolute within. Sikhism advocates a simple technique of Nam Marga which aims at turning the outward flow of mind towards the inward deeper and deeper reality culminating in spiritual experience of the Ultimate.According to the Sikh thought the perfect man is the one who attains to the self-realisation and thereafter leads a spiritual life which is neither fixed nor stagnant, but fluid, active, creative and altruistic helping others to attain to the self-realisation and thus build a society in which social life and ethics are based on the belief that all creatures are same in essence. The author carries out an in-depth philosophical analysis of the above issues concerning man and gives them a detailed exposure. This book would prove to be of great interest to common man in quest of truth about man as well as to the students of philosophy, particularly, philosophy of religion. Contents Preface Chap.

Description : Containing the 11th Guru Nanak Memorial Lectures to Punjabi University, which were delivered in 1977 and hailed as a turning point in the study of the Sikh Gurus' message, this study relates the ideas of the holy Gurus to the ideas of both Western thinkers and ancient Indian visionaries. This philosophic work expresses with clarity and precision the Sikh Gurus' questions about God, immortality, and love, and the solution of active love that they promoted in response to the extreme bigotry they encountered.

Description : This new introduction to Sikhism aims to introduce this increasingly studied religion through the lens of contemporary issues. Illustrated throughout with examples and case studies taken from lived religion, each chapter attempts to interpret the teachings of Sikhism in a modern context and apply them to modern day scenarios. After an initial chapter providing an overview of the Sikh religion, its history and basic theological tenets, Jagbir Jhutti-Johal moves through key contemporary themes, often overlooked in other introductions: Sikhism and women, science and bioethics, and ethics and morality. She concludes with a final section looking at the future for Sikhism, and whether modern issues that are confronting the Sikhs, such as gender inequality, advances in science and technology, family life and homosexuality can be addressed and understood through a critical engagement with the Guru Granth Sahib. She will also consider whether the process of interpretation and reinterpretation has lead to an abandonment, changing or impoverishment of the religious teachings from their original form.

Description : Sri Guru Granth Sahib is generally known as the holy scripture of Sikhism, the world’s fifth largest religion. But this holy scripture is neither a storybook nor just the philosophy of the Sikh saints or prophets. It is more like a collection of divine revelations and hymns, expressing the feelings of love and devotion of the Sikh Gurus for the Supreme Being, along with the similar yearnings and longings of the devotees and saints from all faiths prevalent in Indian subcontinent during those times. The beauty of this 1430 page hymnal written in 22 different languages lies in the fact that while it spiritually connects the human mind to the original source of eternal bliss, it provides a very practical and effective way to live in love and harmony with other fellow human beings irrespective of their faith, color, caste, creed, or race. The following are a few examples of the views of eminent writers and scholars regarding Sri Guru Granth Sahib: “Mankind’s religious future may be obscure, yet one thing can be foreseen. The living higher religions are going to influence each other more than ever before, in the days of increasing communications between all parts of the world and branches of the human race. In this coming religious debate, the Sikh religion and its scriptures, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib will have something of special value to say to the rest of the world.’ Arnold Toynbee- Historian “I have studied the scripture of great religions, but I do not find elsewhere the same power of appeal to the heart and mind as I find here in these volumes [of Sri Guru Granth Sahib]. There is something strangely modern about these scriptures. They speak to the people of any religion or of none. They speak for the human heart and the searching mind.” Mrs. Pearl S. Buck- Nobel Laureate In Volume five of the “It Is The Same Light” series (SGGS pages 801-1000), author Daljit Singh Jawa continues his humble effort to share the beauty of the SGGS with those who have limited familiarity with the language (Gurumukhi), history, or context. The following are some of the comments received on the volume 1 (pages 1-200 of SGGS): “This translation of Guru Granth Sahib is one of the best English translations in my view, as it is in simple understandable English, each shabad’s summary message is given, there is connection between the shabads to reveal continuity of thought process in Guru ji’s message. Thanks to S Daljit Singh ji for the great work which will benefit future generations understand Guru Ji’s message easily.” -Amarjit Singh, M.D., University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY “A monumental undertaking, reflecting a lifetime of devotion to the Sri Guru Granth Sahib and to the scholarly study of its voluminous texts. Both its rendition of the original Gurmukhi script, with accompanying English transliteration, and its erudite commentary on each of the Granth’s many hymns mark this work as a stunning achievement which will benefit all serious students of the Sikh religion and of world religions in general.” -Barry Crawford, Ph.D., Washburn Univesity, Topeka, Kansas
