The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism - Book By Dr Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia

Foreword To Book  'The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism' By Dr Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia

Punjabi University has launched a project of publishing books in Punjabi and English, dedicated to the tercentenary celebrations of the Khalsa. In this series, 13 books in Punjabi have already been published and two more in the press. Six books in English have been published and the process of publishing 15 more books in English have been set into motion. Reprints of four celebrated books are being brought out.

The present book entitled, 'The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism', by Dr. Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia forms an invaluable part of this series. Dr. Ahluwalia brings to bear his deep understanding of and insight into the Indian and the Western philosophical and metaphysical traditions to bear upon the exposition of doctrine of Sikhism. The analysis and treatment of the issues, pertaining to Sikhism, is marked by the author's enviable grip on the modernist and the post-modernist idiom and perspective. The essays, contained in the book, are placed in a civilisational and inter-religious context. At places, the author makes a palpable departure from the beaten track of the interpretation of the Sikh tenets and thus makes an original contribution to the exegesis of the Sikh conceptions.

I take great delight in introducing this book to the serious students of Sikhism and trust that it will open up new windows on the landscape of Sikh studies.

About The Author Of 'The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism'
 

The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism is a pioneering work that studies, holistically, in post-modernist perspective, the doctrinal basis and the endogenous institutional evolution of Sikhism.

The postulates of Nanakian thought have been well differentiated from both Indian and Western philosophical systems.

Dr . Ahluwalia holds that in contrast to the modern western civilization, based on the category of reason with its reductive-analytic methodology, the post-modern global civilization of the 21st century and the third millennium would, hopeably, be centred on the ontological concept of spirit with its 'systems-thinking' methodology. In this context, the author contends that Sikhism, being essentially a religion of spirit, can play a significant role in evolving the ideology of the coming world civilization.
 
Stressing the correlativity of the universal and the historical dimension of Sikhism. Dr . Ahluwalia observes that the existential concerns of the Sikhs have gradually taken precedence over the universal concerns of Sikhism. This lopsidedness would have to be corrected in contemporary Sikh praxis for bringing to the centrestage the universal concerns of this faith. The author points out that Sikh religion is neither region-specific nor ethnicity - specific; this essential characteristic will have to be kept in view in projecting the universalistic profile of Sikhism as a world religion.
