Guru Tegh Bahadur - The Sword and the Spirit

Guru Tegh Bahadur - The Sword and the Spirit

Regular price $25.00

By Dr. Surindar Singh Kohli

First published by Punjabi University in 1977, this is a first edition, new hardcover book with some significant dust and shelf wear. The dust jacket is intact but faded, and the pages show some foxing. Size: 9" x 5.5". 134 pages. 

This is a very thoughtful biography of Guru Tegh Bahadur - nicely written and footnoted.  This biography covers the Guru's early years, his travels, his interaction with Aurangzeb and ultimately his martyrdom.  There is a very good section on the Muslim chroniclers.  Dr. Kohli has included an emotive translation of the 9th Guru's Bani, organized by Raag, and a summary of the Guru's philosophy 

This is a great book  - one of the best about the 9th Guru.  It is long out of print and a rare find!
