Bhai Gurdas  (Makers of Indian Literature)
Bhai Gurdas (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
From the Back of the Book

Bhai Gurdas is well known for his poetic universalization of the religious beliefs and practices of the Sikh faith in Punjabi and Braji languages.

The Bhai views Guru Nanak and his faith as the natural and inevitable culmination of the long history of Indian religious thought.

Steeped in Indian lore, the Bhai's poetry is characterized by his suggestive diction, impeccable idiom and illustrative imagination. Bhai Gurdas's work provides valuable source-material to regional and national historiographers, especially those interested in such fields of human activity as religion, philosophy, hermaneutics, sociology, economics, agriculture and literature.

He holds a very interesting mirror to the rural activities of medieval Punjab.

About the Author

Pritam Singh the author of this monograph, is a writer of repute in Punjabi. Occasionally, he writes in English also. The compilation of Sikh Concept of the Divine (1985) was done by him in English, while he was professor of Guru Nanak Studies in Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. His writings in Punjabi include The Evolution of Gurumukhi Script (1955); life and Letters of Khushal khan Khattak (1974); Foreign Influences on Punjab and Punjabi(1978); Life and Letters of Bhai Kahn Singh of Nabha (1989) and Sant Singh Sekhdon (1991).

In this slender volume Prof. Pritam Singh evaluates the life and work of Bhai Gurdas, mainly for the benefit of non-Punjabi readers.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
