The Name of My Beloved (Verses of the Sikh Gurus)


Out of stock


The first contemporary English translation of hymns and prayers from the Guru Granth Sahib – the principal sacred text of the Sikh religion – and the Dasam Granth, the poetry of the tenth Sikh Guru.
The vision of Guru Nanak, the fifteenth-century founder of the Sikh faith, celebrated the oneness of the divine that both dwells within and transcends the endless diversity of life. Guru Nanak’s vision inspired the rich and inclusive philosophy of Sikhism, which is reflected in this first modern English translation of poems from the central Sikh text, the Guru Granth Sahib, and from the highly esteemed Dasam Granth, the Guru Granth Sahib consists of poems and hymns by Guru Nanak, his successors, and Hindu and Islamic saints and the Dasam Granth collects the poetry of the tenth Sikh Guru. Poetry from both texts is heard daily and at rites of passage and celebration in Sikh homes and gurudwaras, carrying forward Sikh belief in the oneness and equality of all humanity.
