Janamsakhis, as the name suggests, are stories that claim to reveal the life of the first Guru, Nanak Dev, in a chronological manner. The earliest known Janamsakhi dates back to 1658, nearly 120 years after the death of Guru Nanak in 1539. None of the Janamsakhis can claim to be the most authentic or authoritative version as, through the years, each chronicler of the Guru’s life has added and altered the narrative according to the need of the times. In this volume, Dr Harish Dhillon has chosen the twenty most inspiring and interesting stories about the life and times of Guru Nanak. While the language may be contemporary, at its core this narrative has the same venerable feel that marked the tone of Janamsakhis written centuries ago.
