Prem Sumarag: The Treatise Of A Sanatan Sikh
Prem Sumarag: The Treatise Of A Sanatan Sikh
Description
About the Book:

This book is presents an ideal of the duty of the Sikh Panth during the eighteenth / nineteenth centuries. The importance of these classic text lies in the fact that it is of Sanatan origin part of a tradition which has been over time over shadowed by the dominant Tat Khalsa version of the Rahit.

McLeod translation of Randhir Singh's text of the Prem Sumarag in thus a major contribution to Sikh Studies. Notwithstanding debates about its ate this Sanatan text presents a radical alternative to the Tat Khalsa interpretation of Sikh history.

This book provides an extended account of the Sikh way of life. It outlines Sikh way of life. It outlines Sikh ceremonies and ideals and what was conceived to be noble practice by its anonymous authors. The leisurely and detailed style of this document differs dramatically from the usually pithy style of the other rahit-namas and this Sanatan text is in its description perhaps a closer reflection of the society of the time.

Along with a comprehensive introduction, this translation by one of the most eminent scholars of Sikh studies will be of keen interest to students and scholars of Sikh studies, comparative religion, cultural studies and sociology as well as the interested lay reader.

About the Author:

He is Emertius Professor at the University of Otago and a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.

Great service. Keep on helping the people
Armando, Australia
I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I am a long-time customer of Exotic India for gifts for me and friends and family. We are never disappointed. Your jewelry craftspeople are very skilled artists. You must treasure them. And we always look forward to the beautifully decorated boxes you use to ship your jewelry.
Diane, USA
I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
