Introduction To 'A Hisrotian's Approach To Guru Gobind Singh' By Surjit Singh Gandhi

The presnt work is a comprehensive and analytical study of the life of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs. It is an objective account of his response to the contemporary spiritual, political, social and economic conditions, his contribution to metaphysics, social  engineering and polity, his attitude towards Muslims as well as Hindu orthodoxy, his floating of the Order of Khalsa, a new model of man as well as of society, his providing of fresh insights and fresh stimuli to make the people dynamic, forward-looking and transcendental in their approach and out-look.

The author peruses the available primary sources and earnestly collects the facts, screens traditions, legends and myths regarding Guru's life. He goes through the mythic poetic works of the contemporaries, especially those contained in Dasam Granth. His approach is that facts unfold the outer life while myths and legends reveal the state of consciouseness. Therefore, to him, both are useful while constructing history, though he takes care that non-historical and imaginary facts do not affect his conclusions. Hence, the author successfully attempts to treat all the facts pertaining to the life of the Guru, as they took place.
