This book, addressed to the Sikhs living in foreign lands, seeks to provide good guidance to the understanding of characteristics of a Sikh.

"The idea for the present book has been given by a good Sikh of Coventry, who said that during his experience as an important office-bearer of a Gurdwara, he had come across many shades of a Sikh, who even did not know the exact definition of Sikh. Since a Sikh is not only concerned with the historical development of Sikhism, he has to understand the role of the Guru, the Sadh Sangat, and the Name for a Sikh. He has also to grasp the characteristics of a Sikh and rise to greater spiritual heights with the help of the enlightened Sikhs in the congregation."
