Foreword To The Book ‘Sikhism and Punjab's Heritage’ - Book By Dr Wazir Singh

The Department of Religious Studies of Punjabi University has brought out this volume on Sikhism and Punjab's Heritage with its focus on the Punjabi culture evolved over the centuries. The Department organized a national seminar at Patiala, sponsored by the University Grants Commission, on the theme "Religious Heritage of Punjab" a few years back. Some of the papers presented at the seminar, with the addition of a few other papers contributed by well-known scholars, have been edited in the volume in hand by Professor Wazir Singh who directed the seminar. Altogether, the volume comprises twenty essays, all relating to the theme of Punjab's culture, religious history and Sikhism.

I am sure the publication will be of great interest to the scholars of religion and culture as well as to the readers in general.

Preface To The Book ‘Sikhism and Punjab's Heritage’ - Book By Dr Wazir Singh

The Department of Religious Studies is happy to release this volume on the important theme of Sikh ism and Punjab's culture.

The introductory paper attempts to define Punjab's culture in terms of its physical, intellectual, aesthetic, moral and spiritual aspects. The theme of Punjabiat (the Punjabi identity) is continued in S. Kartar Singh Duggal's paper, followed by Dr S. S. Suri's spotlight on the impact of Religion on Punjabi Culture. Dr Fauja Singh traces the religio-cultural heritage of the Punjab in his valuable contribution to the volume. Dr Attar Singh in his paper analyses the dynamics of Sikh culture, while Professor Pritam Singh works out a programme of coummunity development for the Sikhs.

Section 'B' of the volume presents the religious heritage of Punjab from different perspectives. Sardar Khushwant Singh has presented a delightful study on the poet Iqbal, whom he rates as a 'prophet' of the  modern Punjab.

The publication has the blessings of Professor H. K. Manmohan Singh, Vice-Chancellor, who always takes lively interest in the activities of the Department of Religious Studies.

Dr Wazir Singh was the Director of the Seminar, the proceedings of which form the basis of this publication. He has not only edited the volume but also contributed a couple of learned papers to the collection, enhancing the value of its contents.
