Description
From the back of the Book

"The author, K.S. Duggal, an eminent and creative writer, has beautifully explained in this book the great gems of Truth that are laid down in the Sikh dharma." Swami Rama

The essence of the Sikh tradition - an emphasis spiritual love, service to humanity, and devotion -is beautifully conveyed in this description of the Sikh philosophy and way of life.

The Sikh tradition embodies the ideal of a spiritual life lived in the world, yet above the world -dealing successfully with the events of daily life, while maintaining the awareness of that one, underlying Reality that is the source of all love.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
