The book highlights the exceptional feature of Gurubani as a repository of universal values, portraying the indivisibility of diverse spiritual experiences. It underlines the idea that though the main thrust of Guru Granth Sahib is upon the spiritual quest and adherence to the Divine Will, yet it mirrors a definite stance towards the contemporary social and political realities too. It also unfolds the reality that while the Granth recognises the value and validity of cultural and religious plurality in social existence, its main concern is well-being of every individual and of all the peoples of the world without discrimination and inequity. The various expositions, constituting this volume, help endow Sikhism with a unique place amongst the world religions.

How the compilation and editing of the Holy Granth was undertaken, needs to be looked into in depth and some detail. History tells us that towards the end of the final round of his preaching of Sikhism, Guru Arjan Dev remained for a year in Gurdaspur region and returned to Amritsar in 1601. After reaching Amritsar, he devoted his entire attention to the compilation of Guru Granth Sahib.
