Sikhism for Modern Man
Sikhism for Modern Man
Description
FOREWORD:

Sikhism For the Modern Man discusses the predicament in which modern man finds himself placed. Numerous discoveries of far-reaching consequence, made in the fields of Natural Sciences and accumulation of vast amount of scientific knowledge during the last couple of centuries, had shaken man's faith in religious dogma. This is particularly so in respect of the genesis of the universe, its expanse and nature, which man had been taught to believe and marvel at. Various faiths have had their own fanciful notions on this account. Disturbed in his faith by new discoveries and prompted by material advancement in Science, the modern man sought to build for himself a kingdom of heaven on earth. This gave rise to different types of political systems each aiming at Utopia. But these advance too soon shattered his dreams and added to his frustrations.

The author sees a retreat to religion as an inevitable consequence. It is in this perspective that the message of universal teachings of Sikhism has a special relevance.

This work is being published posthumously by an arrangement made with the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management committee who had originally sponsored the writing of this book by Sirdar Kapur Singh on the occasion of Indian Philosophical Congress held at Delhi University in January 1976. Thought suffused with rather overladen expressions, the thought-content itself makes for compelling and diligent reading. The author lends evidence of fresh and original thinking. On many a subject touched upon by him, he stimulates further thought and research.

I would also love to place on record my keen appreciation of the ready and valued co-operation the University has received from Prof. Kapur Singh's distinguished son, Dr. Inderjit Singh, Principal Economist, I.B.R.D. Washington, D.C., U.S.A.

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.
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.
Andreas, Germany.

Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
Ruslan, Russia.
