The Sikh Heritage is a unique guide to the lives and thought of the ten Sikh Gurus, their work, philosophy and achievements in history. Enhanced throughout with works of art and superb color photography, this narrative of divinity and scholarship is a fascinating guide to the thought of the ten Gurus and the paths they laid down. In this book, Dr Daljeet explores both the teachings of the masters and the immense cultural riches of Sikh society. She narrates the great life of Maharaja Rajit Singh, one of the pivotal Sikh leaders, and sheds light on the many artistic and sacred aspects of Sikhism. From the Shabads (hymns) to the Adi Granth, the book of learning that defines the Sikh way of living without images of God, to the architectural traditions that teach perfection in the Golden Temple of Amritsar, she guides the reader through a sophisticated and highly accomplished culture.
