Preface To 'Encyclopedia Of Sikhism' By H S Singha

It is a complete encyclopedia but at the same time keeping it handy for everyday use. It has over one thousand entries about Sikh Gurus, martyrs, heroes, places of worship, religious centres, practices, traditions, theological concepts, ethical principles and a whole lot of terms and facts with which a person culturally literate about Sikhism must be familiar.

The format is user-friendly. Entries are alphabetically arranged with cross-references given wherever needed. There are extensive quotations from the Adi Granth abbreviated as A G in the text and some from the Dasam Granth, abbreviated as DG in the text. Authenticity has been ensured by cross-checking the information with that given in the monumental work: Mahan Kosh by  Bhai Kahn Singh and the Encyclopaedia of Sikhism brought out by the Punjabi University, Patiala. Other works which have been widely consulted in the preparation of this book include among others : The Sikh Religion (Vol. I-VI) by Max Arthur Macaulife and the History of the Sikhs (Vol. I-VII) by Hari Ram Gupta.

It is hoped that the Encyclopaedia of Sikhism in its present form will be popular reference book for students of Sikhism. Comments and suggestions for further improvement will be most welcome.
