PREFACE

(First Edition)

Such a book which could tell about the basic teachings of Guru Nanak Dev, in precise, clear and unambiguous manner, was planned in 1969 A. D. as Guru Nanak's birth quincentennial volume under the inspiring and able guidance of the then Vice-Chancellor of the Punjabi University, S. Kirpal Singh Narang. A scholar was commissioned to produce the book. But something or the other intervened and time passed on. A review of the situation suggested the formation of a Committee of scholars including Bhai Jodh Singh and Dr. Balbir Singh to arrange for the book to come up. Belated appearance of the book has, I feel, been duly compensated by the valuableness of the articles of the scholarly contributors, later commissioned by the committee to write on various aspects of the Guru's teachings.

Guru Nanak Dev, according to the tradition of the Janamsakhis was proclaimed Guru-Parmeshwara by Parbrahm Parmeshwara Himself as he was taken to the Divine Court fromthe Bein rivulet. He was granted a cup of the Name and had the assurance that wherever his blessing would be showered the blessing of the Supreme would be there.

The Guru set out on his preaching mission will full authority.

The compare any two religions to draw that the one is higher or more perfect or better than other is a perversion. It should at once be conceded that each religion has its own personality and is different from every other religion. Each religion stands in its own right even though it may appear that it has a few ideals, concepts, doctrines, dogmas, rituals and ways which are similar or common or identical with those of another religion. Some correspondence of ideas is always possible but no resemblance is enough to prove the 'influence' of the one upon  the other. Even identity of some ideas in two scriptures connotes the similarity of the mystical experience of the seers and not that the one has drawn upon the other.

The Religion that Guru Nanak Dev conceived and preached is different from any other religion. The ideals, concepts and doctrines to which he subscribed are contained in his bani (sacred composition) which, in its authentic form, has been preserved in the Guru Granth which was compiled and edited by Guru Arjan Dev (1563-1606). Guru Nanak Dev's spiritual successors, also known as the Gurus, interpreted, expounded, explained most faithfully the ideas 'broadcast' by the founder Guru as 'received' in the form of commands from the 'Highest', each in his own way and individual style. The Religion has had its historical evolution and development. Basically, however, the Religion of Sikhism is what Guru Nanak visualised.

All that Guru Nanak has to say proceeds from the 'Mul Mantra' or the 'Basic Doctrine' which, as revealed to him, reads as Ikonkar Sati Namu Karta Purakhu Nirbhau Nirvairu Akal Murti Ajuni Saibhang Gur parsadi. The seven facets of the Basic Doctrine include Guru Nanak Dev's metaphysics, philosophy, religion, social idealism, aesthetics, philosophy of political and individual freedom and values of religion and culture. The Mul Mantra comprises seven values. Absolute value is one and only one. But these seven facets of the same, as arranged by Guru Nanak, are no where else to be found in the same sequence, order and arrangement of emphasis. This arrangement of values proclaims the originality of the faith of the Guru. The contents of this book naturally veer  round the subjects of the Mul Mantra or as they have been adumbrated and expounded in the rest of the revealed bani.

Our sincere thanks are due to all the scholars who have graciously contributed to this volume.
