W. H. McLeod
Barnes & Noble Books, 1984 - 166 páginas
Dr. McLeod provides an introduction to the sacred literature of Sikhism, giving a clear orientation to Sikh history, religion, and tradition. The collection itself begins with episodes from the lives of the Ten Gurus, translated from sacred texts. These are followed by extensive selections from the Adi Granth and the Dasam Granth, supplemented by extracts from the works of the notable Sikh poets Bhai Gurdas and Bhai Nand Lai. A translation of the entire nit-nem (the daily liturgy of the Sikhs) is included, together with scriptural portions traditionally chanted during Sikh ceremonies. A shortened text of the Rahit Maryada (Sikh code of conduct) is also provided. The volume concludes with a selection devoted to the principal Sikh sects and a selection from the works of modern Sikh theologians.
