Description

 

From the Jacket

 

Guru Arjan Dev (1563 - 1606), the third and youngest son of Guru Ram Das and the fifth Guru of the Sikhs is the author of a considerable part of the Gurubani or poetry in the Guru Granth Sahib.

Guru Arjan Dev's composition in the Granth Sahib can be divided into three main categories - a long organized poem called 'Sukhmani', the 'Bavan Akhari' and the 'Barah Maha' in Rag Megh. The 'Sukhmani' comprising 24 sections is noted for its simplicity in theme and diction. It is generally recited in part or whole in the morning in most Sikh temples and homes.

The 'Bara Mana which is also similarly recited, especially on the first of every month, is written in a lucid language and of all Guru Arjan's compositions, its language is nearest to Punjabi in Idlom and structure. The other writings of the Guru are written in a language somewhere between modern Punjabi and old Braj or Sadhavi.

The general tone of Guru Arjan's writing is that of saintly devotion to God and simple but meaningful teaching of the deity and virtuous living.

Guru Arjan made use of all metres known to Indian prosody but he never sacrificed the clarity of his idea, the vibrance of his emotion or the lyricality of his note up to make his verse conform strictly to the rules of a confined metre.

His felicity of expression is so consummate that he can make the briefest possible lines carry his most profound ideas.

Guru Arjan Dev will be ever remembered, as the builder of the Golden Temple, one of the wonders of Indian architecture.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
