A great deal of Academic literature is already available on the Sikhs. So what makes this trilogy of books any different. During the author's travels in India Europe Canada and the U.S.A. he found that they younger generation has got separated from the influence of its religion social customs festivals and the way of life. There is a big information and knowledge gap. This is not their fault. This alienation is due to their being under the influence of a westernized environment and an educational and social system in which they live. There are also the pressures to which they and their parents are exposed. Hence there is a lack of appropriate parental guidance in these matters. There is however a keen desire among the younger generation to learn about the heritage of the ancestors. While they are free to form their own ideas on how to lead their lives it is important for them to understand the basic concepts beliefs and customs so as to understand their roots and religious beliefs. This series of books is an attempt to bridge this gap. This trilogy of books on Sikhism documents the basic information on the Sikh Religion their historic places of worship and their history. These books are aimed at providing the basic information in a readable and presentable format for the benefit of generation next especially those living outside the state of Punjab and in countries outside India especially in the UK Canada the U.S.A. and Malaysia. This book is focused on the religion social customs and way of life. This volume covers these three aspects with a focus on the ten Gurus their lives and teachings the Sikh orders the philosophy and theology the way of life the role and status of women in the Sikh religion religious and domestic ceremonies the festivals and the emerging trends and the need for reform. Intensely illustrated the text provides tremendous visual insights to the great people the Sikhs. 326 pp. Nº de ref. del artículo: 69778
