By the Grace of theTrue Guru, a strong desire had been created in my mind to bring before the Sikhs now spread in various parts of world the message of their Scripture in a series of books. For this purpose, a series entitled 'Guru Granth Sahib Speaks' has been launched, in which two books have been prepared with the titles Death and After and Naam.I am confident that the Sikhs living in various parts of the world will be interested to imbibe the True Guru's words in their lives and reform themselves in order to become worthy citizens of not only this world. There is no doubt that at present the Sikhs who have migrated to various countries and settled there for the last half a century or more have not only lost their hold on their own language i.e. Punjabi, but also do not know intimately about their religious literature. They mostly know that they are Sikhs coming from Punjab and settling in foreign lands with different cultures. They are of course very sturdy and brave people and unless they know the ins and outs of their own religion and follow the sayings of the Gurus, they will not survive as Sikhs for a long time. Therefore, it is necessary for them to live upto the standards and norms fixed by their Gurus and a deep perception of their heritage.
I do not claim to be an ideal Sikh and might have fallen a prey to many failings, but it is the Grace of the True Guru, who beckons me to proceed further in his mission. I do not claim to be a great Scholar of my religion and might have given some erratic explanations, but the Sikh Sangat which is Supreme, will come to my guidance. The above-mentioned two books are before the Sikh community, which will suggest to me some very emergent topics for the series so that as long as I live, some service may be done from my side, though I believe that it is only the Ten Guru, who goes on bestowing his kindness upon his Sikhs.
I am confident that the Sikhs will like this series and write to me about their suggestions for its betterment. My present address is given below.
