Back of The Book

Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru in succession to Nanak, was born a prince, but chose to remain a holy mendicant; a saint, whom circumstances turned into a warrior, but who yet remained ever a saint at heart. He gave a new menaning to life by popularizing death for a cause. He abolished privilege by caste, birth, station, creed, and raised the lowest equal in all ways to the highest. He said: "The temple and the mosque are the same".
