The Three Gurus
The Three Gurus
Description
Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, was born in a critical period of Indian history. On one hand, people were divided into castes, sects and factions; on the other, the Musilm rulers perpetrated atrocities on Hindus and the weaker sections of society. The masses in their hardships and miseries, cried for a saviour. Nanak came as God's messenger in the common man's hour of dire need. His followers, called 'Sikhs', formed a group of God-fearing men and women devoted to the service of the people. His life is an inspiring example of the practice of truth, love and humility. Guru Tegh Bahadur carried the conviction - more than four hundred years ago, when religious intolerance and persecution were common all over the world - that every individual must have the freedom to worship the faith of his or her choice. When Aurangzeb began to persecute Hindus ruthlessly, Guru Tegh Bahadur wrote to the emperor, reminding him that the Holy Koran does not sanction forcible conbersion. Great ingenuity was used in devising new kinds of torture for the Guru and his closest disciples, but Aurangzeb failed to crush their spirit. Thus, the Guru laid down his life for a great principle. Even to this day, he is remembered as Hind-di-chadar, protector of India's honour. Guru Gobind Singh was the last of the ten Sikh gurus. His chief contribution was to convert a pacifist, passive and fatalistic community of Punjabi Sikh into a militant, aggressive and determined brotherhood of the Khalsa. It was he who gave Sikhism its five sacred symbols, including the unshorn hair and beard, and who made the Sikhs members of one casteless family - the Singhs.

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 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
