In this lucidly written account of one of the world's youngest faiths, the author gives an introduction to the history, customs and practices of Sikh people. It narrates the origin of this unique faith at the hands of a man with a vision and extraordinary intelligence, and traces its evolution over a span of more than two centuries under the guidance of the Ten Gurus, religious heads who showed the way to Sikh people. The book briefly leads its readers on a journey through the experiences and teaching of the gurus, the philosophy and festivals of the Sikhs, who like other faiths, delicately nurture their very own beliefs and mores. It is punctuated by passages from Sikh scriptures and describes some important ceremonies and rituals. The book is vividly illustrated by pictures that help to understand the cultural ethos, philosophy and way of life of a people whose highest spiritual authority rests in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

Gurbachan Singh (born in 1923) has had a long and distinguished career in the Indian Foreign Service, from which he retired in 1981. After postings in Washington, London, Paris and Thailand, he served as India's envoy in Morocco, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Switzerland and the Vatican. Despite thirty-six years of living/travelling in foreign countries, in addition to five years of schooling in London, his roots remain firmly in the soil of India. He belongs to one of the most notable families of pre-partition Punjab and, since childhood, carries an abiding interest in the Sikh faith and philosophy.
