 A comprehensive, compelling, and insightful narrative that traces the birth, thegrowth, and the spread of Sikhism – one of the world’s most dynamic and progressivereligions.                                                  In this perceptive work, Dr Harish Dhillon highlights the lives and times of the ten SikhGurus, beginning with Guru Nanak, who founded Sikhism in 69, and ending with GuruGobind Singh, who established the Khalsa Panth in 1699. It throws light on how the Gurusacquired profound knowledge and wisdom, which they sought to pass on to the commonpeople through their teachings. Their life histories show how they sincerely practised whatthey preached and how they led by example. Apart from these, it recounts the enormoussacrifices the Gurus made to keep the faith going. In addition, the book gives elaborate details on how Sikhism has evolved over the centuries.                                               This volume reveals the human side of the ‘Divine Gurus’ venerated not only by Sikhs, but also across various faiths in India and in other parts of the world. The contents in the bookare intertwined with the underlying theme that the ideal religion (or faith) is one that isbased on simplicity and keeps changing with the times, yet does not forget the very essence that it started with.
