Understanding Sikhism

Description The author being a convert to Sikhism from Christianity and being a willing convert, it would be most appropriate to quote his own views on Sikhism to communicate the main content of this book. The author who calls himself an "Angrez Sikh", writes in the preface. "Sikhism is not only a religion, but also a way of life. It is completely logical, very spiritual, and gives an attainable target of life based on one's own efforts from now until death. There is no burden of sin to carry, vis a vis. "The sins of our fathers." So immediately there is hope. These lines sum up his view of Sikhism and his adoption of Sikhism voluntarily. The whole account is based on personal experience, without any outside indoctrination. The book not only highlights the basic postulates of Sikhism but removes several doubts about Sikhism in the non-Sikh readers' minds. The diction and expression, being based on personal experience, are spontaneous, forthright and sincere[edit]
