Bhai Gurdas  (Makers of Indian Literature)
Bhai Gurdas (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
From the Back of the Book

Bhai Gurdas is well known for his poetic universalization of the religious beliefs and practices of the Sikh faith in Punjabi and Braji languages.

The Bhai views Guru Nanak and his faith as the natural and inevitable culmination of the long history of Indian religious thought.

Steeped in Indian lore, the Bhai's poetry is characterized by his suggestive diction, impeccable idiom and illustrative imagination. Bhai Gurdas's work provides valuable source-material to regional and national historiographers, especially those interested in such fields of human activity as religion, philosophy, hermaneutics, sociology, economics, agriculture and literature.

He holds a very interesting mirror to the rural activities of medieval Punjab.

About the Author

Pritam Singh the author of this monograph, is a writer of repute in Punjabi. Occasionally, he writes in English also. The compilation of Sikh Concept of the Divine (1985) was done by him in English, while he was professor of Guru Nanak Studies in Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. His writings in Punjabi include The Evolution of Gurumukhi Script (1955); life and Letters of Khushal khan Khattak (1974); Foreign Influences on Punjab and Punjabi(1978); Life and Letters of Bhai Kahn Singh of Nabha (1989) and Sant Singh Sekhdon (1991).

In this slender volume Prof. Pritam Singh evaluates the life and work of Bhai Gurdas, mainly for the benefit of non-Punjabi readers.

Testimonials

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!
Pablo, Germany
I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
