GURU NANAK'S JAPU JI  (Trilingual)
GURU NANAK'S JAPU JI (Trilingual)
Description
About the Book :

The work is a translation into English of Japu Ji- the morning prayer of the Sikhs. Individual stanzas of Japu Ji are followed by brief annotations, wherever necessary. The Introduction is a perceptive study and exposition of the basic tenets of Sikhism.

Japu Ji goads the seeker on to a state of 'willing surrender to the Divine Will'. Invoking the grace of the Almigthy, it lays stress on a subjugation and sublimation of man's Morbid 'ego', and on persistent endeavour of the individual soul to tear apart the veil of 'untruth'. Through total surrender to the Master's Will and in loving devotion to his Master, man seeks and ever closer proximity to the Divine Soul, Which is man's primal home and his final destination. Unlike the Semetic and many other faiths, Heaven in Sikhism is no distant geographical entity. It is, as Confucius put it, 'being one with God'.

About the Author:

Professor G.s. Randhawa, Vice-Chancellor, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar is an academician of repute and an international stature, with a professional standing or over four and a half decades. Although his basic discipline is English Literature, he has all though been a keen follower of Sikh Studies and Comparative Theology. His firm commitment to Sikhism notwithstanding, he combines it with a rare mix of catholicity of approach to other religious belief and to view of thing with a well-grounded belief that-"Truth is not the exclusive monopoly of any single creed" Small wonder, his approach to Sikhism is more like a seeker labouring to comprehend its basic philosophy and concepts and expounding these ideas in simple and lucid terms for the benefit of the common reader.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
