This biographical account of Guru Arjan Dev contains the chronological details about the Guru's birth, occupying the seat of Guruship, architectural and artistic inlaying of Golden Temple, compilation of Guru Granth Sahib and supreme sacrifice. It also portrays the Guru's multifaceted personality through the comments of "Bhats" and later scholars. The author's account is plainly descriptive along the prevalent beliefs rather than a critical analysis of Guru's personality and sacrifice. His bias against Marxism and the threat it poses to religion and culture is also unduly alarmist. Its stance is sermonizing as well.
