This book, Ardas of the Sikhs, is an inclusive, yet discreet work on the subject. While acknowledging the universality of prayer and its efficacy, the author attends to this multisensate phenomenon in all its dimensions-historical, hermeneutical, psychological, philosophical etc. He does this with all deference to the various other extant spiritual disciplines.
Profoundly expounding every phrase of the Ardas, the book has been considered a precious addition to the existing spiritual literature of the world.
Praise for the book:
“The author has retold in English his 1989 classic exploration of the Sikh Ardad in Punjab that has incomparably informed a generation of Sikhs on the meaning, history,style and substance of the Ardas recited by Sikhs worldwide. Jaswant Singh Neki is deeply steeped in Sikh lore and has poet’s way with words. Highly recommended”
