Purakh Guru

Description This book dealing with lives of several founding fathers of the Sikh subject "The Namdhari Sect" or "Kukas" puts forth the thesis that Guru Gobind had never appointed his successor nor anointed Sri Guru Granth Sahib as the eternal Guru of the Sikhs after his own demise consequently, the immediate contemporary Namdhari Sect Guru Baba Balak Singh became the eleventh Sikh of the Gurus and this line of succession still continues up to the present day. But the majority of the Sikhs the Sikh Panth and the Khalsa Panth do not subscribe to such a thesis. The author has tried to prove his thesis through several unsubstantiated anecdotes which belong to the realm of miracles, make beliefs and imaginary myths. The author despite his painstaking efforts fails to carry the reader with him. As such its appeals remain limited to Namdhari followers only.[edit]
