“A landmark volume, filled with beautiful renderings of writings from the Guru Granth Sahib.”
—Simran Jeet Singh, author of The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life

An exquisite new translation of Guru Nanak’s verses, illuminating the sacred tenets cherished by millions of Sikhs worldwide.

Guru Nanak (1469–1539), a native of Panjab, founded the Sikh religion. His vast corpus of nearly a thousand hymns forms the core of the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikhs’ sacred book of ethics, philosophy, and theology. The scripture was expanded and enriched by his nine successors, and Sikhs continue to revere it today as the embodiment of their tradition.

This beautiful new translation by Nikky-Guninder Kaur Singh, a foremost authority on Sikhism, offers a selection of spiritual lyrics composed by Guru Nanak. Here the reader will find the range and depth of his pluralistic vision of the singular divine and discover his central values of equality, inclusivity, and civic action—values that continue to shape the lives of Sikhs worldwide.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A landmark volume, filled with beautiful renderings of writings from the Guru Granth Sahib. Rich in wisdom and steeped in devotion, Sikh religious writing remains largely unknown to those outside of the tradition. Nikky-Guninder Kaur Singh’s translation promises to change that, offering a way into the teachings that remains true to the meaning and beauty of the original. - Simran Jeet Singh, author of The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life
