Foreword To Book 'Ritualism And Its Rejection in Sikhism' Book By Surindar Singh Kohli

After the publication of two books entitled Death and After and Naam in the series 'Guru Granth Sahib Speaks', this book entitled Ritualism and its Rejection in Sikhism was sent for printing, but the publishers held it up because they wanted some more additions in it. According to them, mere mention of the rejection of rituals in Hinduism or any other religion will not serve the purpose. Therefore a moral critical review of the thought-content in Sikhism was necessary. In this case, I had to rely mostly on the work of the stalwarts of the Singh Sabha Movement, especially on Bhai Sahib Bhai Kahn Singh's appreciable work in Hum Hindu Nahin. This work clearly says that Sikhism has no aversion for anyone and not the least for Hindus. It only expounds the differences in various thought-currents in both the religions. Therefore I have divided this book in two parts, the first part prepared anew with quotations from the Sikh Scripture under the title 'Attitiude of Sikhism towards Brahminic Rituals' and the second part already written under the title 'Ritualism in Indic Religions Especially Hinduism'. However, the third book in the series 'Guru Granth Sahib Speaks' has been published under the title Hari-gun (Attributes of God).

I am confident that the Sikhs living in various parts of the world will be greatly benefitted by this new venture.

Introduction To Book 'Ritualism And Its Rejection in Sikhism' Book By Surindar Singh Kohli

Sikhism, is one of the latest and modern religions of the world, is basically anti-ritualistic and anti dogmatic. It shattered for the first time the hegemony of religiosocial forces previously operating in Indian sub-continent. The Sikh philosophy envisages that a true Sikh loves all humanity, earns livelihood by all fair means, shares earnings with the deprived and strives for the realisation of God by abiding His will and seeking Grace. Thus, the universal message of the Sikh Gurus acquires global appeal.

This book is a valuable critique on the anti-ritualistic premises of Sikhism. The author profusely quotes from the original text of Guru Granth Sahib. He also warns about the Brahmanic rituals creeping in the present Sikh practice and helps the reader to identify the true path shown by the Great Gurus.
