Overview for The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism

The Doctrine and Dynamics of Sikhism is a pioneering work that studies, holistically, in post-modernist perspective, the doctrinal basis and the endogenous institutional evolution of Sikhism.

The postulates of Nanakian thought have been well differentiated from both Indian and western philosophical systems.

Dr. Ahluwalia holds that in contrast to the modern western civilization, based on the category of reason with its reductive-analytic methodology, the post-modern global civilization of the 21 century and the third millennium would, hopeably, be centred on the ontological concept of spirit with its 'systems-thinking' methodology. In this context, the author contends that Sikhism, being essentially a religion of spirit, can play a significant role in evolving the ideology of the coming world civilization.

Stressing the correlativity of the universal and the historical dimension of Sikhism, Dr. Ahluwalia observes that the existential concerns of the Sikhs have gradually taken precedence over the universal concerns of Sikhism. This lopsidedness would have to be corrected in contemporary Sikh praxis for bringing to the centrestage the universal concerns of this faith. The author points out that Sikh religion is neither region-specific nor ethnicity-specific; this essential characteristic will have to be kept in view in projecting the universalistic profile of Sikhism as a world religion.
