Introduction to the Book 'Sikh Gurus (Suitable For Kids )'

'Sikh Gurus' has been written to reflect the lives of the heads of the Sikh heritage and faith which may remind us of the pity, love and tenderness that they upheld.

Of the traditions associated with the Sikh Gurus, the one of greatest importance was compassion for the lowly, the sick and bereft.

Guru Nanak wandered far and wide. He preferred to live with the poor. On one of his odysseys, he stayed with a leper who had been shunned by everyone. He healed the stricken and blessed them.

After offering prayers in the mornings, Guru Angad Dev (1504-1552) also tended the sick everyday before he broke his fast.

Guru Harkrishan (1656-1664) is known to have tended the sick when an epidemic of small pox prevailed. He himself caught the infection and sacrificed his life.

Disciples followed the example set by the first Guru. The Gurus were known as shelter for the shelterless.

Seeing the divine refulgence in nature, another trait which Guru Nanak bequeathed to his followers was the love of land, mountain and water. He had trudged all the way to Mecca in Arabia, climbed up to Mount Kailash , and up Kumaun hills, gone to Assam, Gujarat, crossed the Sea to visit Lanka, breathed the air of our vast land, drank the waters of Ravi, Chenab, Beas, Satluj, Sind, Jhelum, Ganga, Brahmaputra, Narmada, Godavari and Cauvery.

All the successor Gurus, who preached faith in one God, as sustainer, followed the example of the founder of Sikh faith.

The heritage, which the Sikh Gurus left for posterity, is in their treatment of women as equal of men.

The book is intended to inculcate habits of compassion and love in daily rituals in the mind of the young readers to equip them to face life courageously inspite oof fearsome odds.

May this humble effort bestow the blessings of the Gurus on its readers, help them to follow their teachings and enable them to serve the society and country better.
