The Gurdwara Reform Movement and The Sikh Awakening

Description Reformation, renaissance and restructuring is integral to almost every religion with the passage of time. Sikh religion is no exception. It underwent great reforms in the management of its shrines and landmark religio-social reforms in Sikh society in the first two decades of twentieth century. It was in the form of historic Gurdwara Reforms and codifying a standard code of conduct for Sikh way of life and observation of Sikh practices. This book traces the background and causes of reforms, the sacrifices of thousands of devout Sikhs to liberate their shrines from the stranglehold of Mahants, setting up of a constitutional body for management for the Sikh shrines and renaissance among the Sikhs. The account is chronological, detailed, well-planned and communicative. It makes a reliable chronicle of the major movements and reform accomplished during that period.[edit]
