Foreword To Book  'Sikh Religion and Human Civilisation' Book By Dr. Jodh Singh
 

Three hundred years passed since the great event of creation of the Khalsa took place in the Shivalik foothills at Anandpur Sahib. Indeed, Guru Nanak, while putting up the authority of his altogether new doctrines before the world, stressed upon the man kind to be ever conscious and alert of the lopsided development of the individual by being only spiritual or totally materialistic. Simultaneously he produced before people an ideal man gurmukh, whom as he says in Sidha Gosti he was ever searching. This gurmukh could offer his head for the sake of love for the mankind. Sangats were established all around the country and from these sangats, where irrespective of caste colour and creed people accepting fatherhood of one God and brotherhood of all humanity assembled to further what the spark of divinity lying domant in them, emerged brahmgianis. These brahmgianis were again different from ancient spiritualists who cherished the idea that gian (jnana) and karma are poles apart. Knowledgeable person had nothing to do with Karma: he has to remain immersed only in his own beatitude. Guru Arjan Dev while discussing the nature of brahmgiani in his Sukhmani asserts that brahmgiani is he whose heart is always filled to brim with the enthusiasm of public weal.

Khalsa created on Baisakhi day of 1699 was the culmination of the configuration of gurmukhs and brahmgianis. A very simple, common to all but firm code of conduct was promulgated on his day by the Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh, which, as says the Sikh tradition was instantly accepted by the mammoth gathering of eighty thousand people. An altogether new social and religious Order of the Khalsa was commenced wherein all the so-called low and high caste men and women had an equal status as well as participation, hitherto unknown to the Indian masses. The beatific nectar prepared through the double edged sword and steel bowl was imparted first to the five beloved ones and then the Guru himself and the whole assembly partook from the hands of the panj piaras--Who initially, belonged to different parts and the castes of the country. This event in the religious and the social history of India, was a unique one whichset its certain and benevolent impact on Indian history and socio-religious systems of thought. In the present times, the Khalsa has spread all over the globe and keeps the standard of Sikh spirit flying high. World over, this event is being commemorated with full gaiety and fervour. We also planned to participate in these celebrations in our own way by publishing standard books on the general theme of creation of the Khalsa. The book in hand is edited by Dr. Jodh Singh who after much labour has collected articles of some of the Sikh stalwarts, edited them by giving notes wherever necessary and then added his one introduction wherein he has tried to bring out the uniqueness and distinction of sikh doctrines as postulated in the Guru Granth Sahib, Varan Bhai Gurdas and the Dasam Granth.

 
We hope that this book will be of much use to the serious readers as well as lay men
