Nanak - An Introduction
Purushottam Nijhaawan

This book seeks to celebrate the timelessness of Nanak's teachings and its relevance to modern-day issues. Hailed as one of the greatest spiritual leaders of mankind, Guru Nanak's message of unconditional faith and unremitting generosity was path-breaking. It resulted in the formation of India's youngest religion, Sikhism. The book unfolds the life of a thinker, reformer and spiritualist, while explicating the teachings of the Guru Granth. With beautiful illustrations, an uncomplicated narrative, and English translations of Sikh prayers, the book is a must-buy for every curious reader.

A unique feature is the inclusion of the English re-edition of the Japuji (the morning prayer of the Sikhs that presents Nanak's vision of God and his cosmic ideas) alongwith its original Punjabi text and Devnagiri transliteration.
