The Japuji, by all accounts, is the masterpiece of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. As implied in the term Japu, the composition is designed for meditation. It is recited and repeated first thing in the morning by the devout. The Holy Granth, the Sikh Bible, opens with it wherein Guru Nanak poses a question: How can one attain truth and demolish the wall of falsehood? He then goes on to provide the answer: Live as He ordains; according to the Lord’s bukam or command. One who lives as He ordains, rids oneself of ego and offers prayers in total submission. It’s one’s deeds that determine one’s life on earth, the ultimate emancipation is the gift of the Lord’s grace alone. The Japuji epitomises Guru Nanak’s philosophy and his cosmic vision, his identification of the divine in man and how best one can cultivate it. Transcreated from the original by K S Duggal, an eminent Punjabi littérateur, the volume is brought out to mark the tercentenary of the birth of the Khalsa — the Sikh people.
