Essential Postulates of Sikhism - Book By Balkar Singh

Foreword To Book 'Essential Postulates' By Balkar Singh

This small venture,"The Essential Postulates of Sikhism" is a collection of only two lectures delivered annually in the series of GuruNanak Commemorative lectures under the auspices of the department of Sri Guru Granth Studies, Punjabi University, Patiala.

Dr. Gobind Singh Mansukhani delivered two lectures i.e. " The Poetry of Guru Nanak" and "The Kirtan of Guru Nanak" in 1982. Dr. Mansukhani is a widely travelled Sikh scholar and his contribution to Gurmat literature is an established fact. The second lecture included in this book was delivered in 1985. The author Dr. Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia is known for his keen interest in the philosophical aspect of sikh studies. His writings though controversial have received full respect and attention. The title of this book has been taken from the caption of his lectures "Essential Postulates of Sikhism And their Sociological Significance" included in this book.
It is an accepted fact that the ultimate spiritual reality is beyond the cognition of man. The ultimate  knowledge, being experiential in nature, comes
only through the grace of the Guru. But yet it is enjoined on he Sikhs or the students of sikhism to endeavour for the search of truth and live upto it. Though the truth is to be experienced at a mystic level, it has to find expression in ones behaviour. All human beings without any distinction are capable of this, of course by the grace of the Guru. For the Sikhs Sri Guru Granth Sahib is true and living Guru for all times. The department deems it a moral duty to make all human beings aware of the authentic and infallible spiritual experience recorded by the great masters themselves. This book is an effort in this direction. The department is greatly obliged to DrBhagat Singh, the Vice Chancellor of this University, under whose able guidance and benign encouragement the project has been completed.
