Guru Nanak A Prophet with a Difference
Guru Nanak A Prophet with a Difference
Description
Foreword

Guru Nanak Dev has a unique place amongst the religious prophets of the world. His teachings have a universal appeal and they hold good for all ages. He has deeply influenced the lives, thinking and conduct of a large number of people. In order to enlighten humanity as a whole, he delivered his message of love. peace, devotion, social justice, religious tolerance and universal brotherhood to mankind.

On the 538th birth anniversary of the Great Master, the Guru Nanak Dev University, founded nearly four decade ago in his name is celebrating the occasion by publishing the monograph –Guru Nanak – A Prophet with a Difference. The author, S. Kharak singh is a very well known scholar in the field of Sikh Studies and needs no introduction.

This book in the form of biography of Guru Nanak is meant for students and general readers. It is primarily aimed at disseminating the message of Guru Nanak to one and all, besides presenting an authentic and historical account of his biography. It highlights Guru Nanak's life and times, his experiences at Sultanpur, his missionary tours (Udasis) and finally his stay at Kartarpur on the banks of river Ravi.

Significantly, the bani of Guru Nanak as recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib, his ideology and its relevance to the present times is what makes the Guru a prophet with a difference.

I hope this monograph will enlighten everyone, especial our young readers and inspire them to be good human beings the true spirit of the teachings of the Great Gurus.

Testimonials

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.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

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.
