There Is One God.
He Is The Supreme Truth.'

This Is The Central Belief, The Mool Mantra, Of The Sikh Religion, Founded In Punjab By Guru Nanak (1469-1539), Who Drew Upon The Teachings Of Muslim Sufis And Hindu Bhaktas. The Common Basic Factor Of The Sikh Community Is Belief In The Ten Gurus And The Authorized Version Of The Guru Granth Sahib, The Holy Scripture. In Its Purest Form, Sikhism Is About Unity, Simplicity, Equality And Surrender (To God), And The Verses Of The Gurus--Most Of Them Included In The Granth Sahib--Articulate This Beautifully.

This Volume Contains A Selection Of Verses By Seven Of The Ten Gurus, Culled From The Guru Granth Sahib And Other Sacred Texts Like Guru Tegh Bahadur'S Vairagmayi Bani And The Dasam Granth Of Guru Gobind Singh. The Hymns Of The Sikh Gurus Constitute Some Of The Most Moving Mystical Poetry Ever Composed, And The Brilliant Translations By Khushwant Singh, A Leading Scholar Of Sikh History And Culture And Best-Selling Author, Retain The Immediacy And Lyricism Of The Originals.
