Explore the life of a great spiritual leader―and walk the peaceful path toward God-realization.

Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, was born during a period of political and religious turmoil in India in the fifteenth century. Tension between Hindus and Muslims had escalated, leading to greater polarization of the two religions. By establishing Sikhism, Nanak created a synthesis of Hinduism and Islam with the belief that God is One. He advocated a casteless society based on truth, unity and equality.

During his twenty-three years of traveling he taught not only in India but also in Tibet, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and in the area of the present-day countries of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran, preaching the truth as he perceived it and showing humankind the path to salvation. Highlighting his quest for tolerance and compassion, this fascinating biography tells the story of a unique spiritual leader who showed a gentle, peaceful path to realizing God.

Admired, loved and respected even in his lifetime, Guru Nanak continues to command admiration and respect five hundred years after he lived, with his lasting universal message of Absolute Unity more urgent and necessary than ever before.

From the Inside Flap:

An insightful portrait of a spiritual leader who challenged seekers to transcend the limits of religion by living a life rich with truth, righteousness, knowledge and grace.

This remarkable biography probes the mystery of Guru Nanak's fascinating life of tolerance and service by closely examining his role as:

Historical figure--A humble "prophet of the people," his role in the social order and religious reform of his time continues to have lasting influence in India, Asia and the history of humanity.
Prolific writer--His hymns and philosophical poems--equally lyrical and literary--form the basis of all Sikh spiritual and religious practices.
Wisdom teacher--Refusing to be identified with any one religion, his prescription for ethical living and belief in one God as the salve for religious conflict and social turmoil inspired followers from diverse faiths, nationalities and social backgrounds--and continues today.

About the Author:

Harish Dhillon is the author of The Lives & Teachings of the Sikh Gurus, Love Stories from the Punjab, After the Storm (a collection of short stories), The Legend of Banda Bahadur, The Living Saint (a biography of Bhagat Puran Singh) and Kali Saver (short stories in Punjabi). He teaches English in Mohali (Chandigarh, India).
