This book enlightens as much as it informs while focussing on the Guru's teachings as well as the various udasis (travels) he undertook to spread his message of love, brotherhood and equality. Janamsakhis, as the name suggests, are tales that claim to reveal the life story of the first Guru, Nanak Dev, in a chronological manner. The earliest known Janamsakhi dates back to 1658, nearly 120 years after the death of Guru Nanak in 1539. Moreover, none of the Janamsakhis can claim to be the most authentic or the most authoritative. Through the years, each chronicler of the Guru's life has added and altered the narratives according to the need of the times. For this volume, Harish Dhillon has tailored the twenty most inspiring and interesting stories about the life and times of Guru Nanak. While the language might be contemporary, at its core, this narrative has the same venerable feel that marked the tone of Janamsakhis written centuries ago. In short, through this work, the author has tried to bring the Guru closer to the current generation's sensibilities. This book enlightens as much as it informs, while focussing on the Guru's teachings as well as the various udasis (travels) he undertook to spread the message of love, brotherhood and equality. To those who are interested in history, spiritual study or in simply learning more about Guru Nanak, this book makes for wonderful reading.
