Sikh Theology Of Liberation - Book By Dharam Singh
From The Frontcover Of 'Sikh Theology Of Liberation' By Dharam Singh
The book is an objective study dealing primarily with the concept of liberation in the context of Sikh theology with most of the canonical literature serving as the source material. In the process, it also endeavours to bring out the distinct identity of the Sikh faith, ·especially its emphasis, on the affirmation of self and world because of their being the manifestations of the Real One. Since man and the material world he lives in are relatively real, Sikhism denounces asceticism in favour of a householder's life, and declares that it is possible for the spiritual aspirant, guided by the sabdaguru, to strive for and achieve his ideal.
The ideal of the spiritual aspirant in Sikhism is jivan mukti, and the Sikh emphasis on it vis-a-vis videh-mukti implicitly accepts the necessity of outward social relations for the achievement of self-realization. Since all human beings are the manifestation, in spirit, of the One, they must endeavour to imbibe all humanly realizable attributes of the Divine. Thus, the qualities of love, justice, equality, altruism, etc., in man will transform this material mundane world into an ideal social setup. Such a social order is not only conducive but also necessary for the spiritual and ethicomoral development of man leading to his ultimate liberation.
The book, written in a simple and lucid expression, is a successful attempt at addressing the liberation motif and implicitly to some other allied problems of Sikh theology and philosophy in a systematic manner.
