Pashaura Singh (Author)
Synopsis A comprehensive study of the life and work of Guru Arjan (1563–1606), the fifth Guru of the Sikhs, this volume reconstructs his life based on history, memory, tradition, and mythic representation. Pashaura Singh focuses on the major influences that shaped Guru Arjan’s thought. He discusses the socio-political conditions that moulded the Guru’s life, inspiring him to become one of the greatest religious leaders of the world. Presenting a systematic analysis of Guru Arjan’s teachings, the author examines the Guru’s role as leader of the growing Sikh Panth. The book discusses major institutional developments and the formation of the Sikh canon during the Guru’s reign. It also explores the circumstances surrounding the Guru’s martyrdom and the subsequent impact on the crystallization of the Sikh Panth.
