Preface To Book  'The Sikh Philosophy' Book By Surindar Singh Kohli
 

Sikhism has a distinct religious philosophy of its own. It differs from the fundamentals of the prominent world-religions. This short treatise gives an insight into the metaphysics, ethics, mysticism and cosmology of Sikhism. The student of Philosophy can very well appreciate the distinguishing features. At the time of its birth on the Indian soil, Sikhism was hailed as the third active religion, besides Hinduism and Islam. It was called "Nirmal Panth" (Pure religion) and "Tisar Panth" (Third religion). Some scholars made deliberate attempts to prove that it is an offshoot of Hinduism and Islam and even of Christianity.

This monograph has been divided into two parts. The first part throws light on various aspects of Sikh philosophy. The first chapter gives an over-all philosophic view of Sikhism. It is followed by the Sikh Concept of Ultimate Reality. Associated with this aspect is the Sikh Theology. Then there is a short exposition of Sikh Ethics, with an emphasis on its three major concepts. Then we have a short essay on Sikh Mysticism. Ethics and Mysticism exhibit 'Sikhism in practice'. The important aspect of Mysticism is Meditation. An elaboration of this aspect has been given in the next chapter. Finally the Sikh cosmogony, cosmology and the concept of creation have been brought under focus.

The second part of this monograph is devoted to the comparative study of the prevailing contemporary religious systems of Jainism, Buddhaism, Vedanta, Christianity and Islam, based on thoughts concerning them in the Sikh Scripture, Guru Granth Sahib, Sikhism shows great respect for other religious systems, when it says, "The  world is burning, O Lord, Protect it through any Path, considered suitable by Thee". But if there is any criticism, it is with regard to meaningless and useless ritualism, formalism and symbolism.

I am confident that the students of Philosophy and Religion will find this short treatise useful for them.
