Guru Nanak's Life and Thought by Kapur Singh

‘Guru Nanak’s Life and Thought’ consists of a number of selected works by Kapur Singh, one of the most prominent Sikh figures of the 20th Century. Kapur Singh has authored some influential books including ‘Parasaraprasna’ and ‘Sikhism for the Modern Man’. His essays were, of course, no exception. They consider a number of topics to communicate Sikh political and spiritual thought. With this, Madanjit Kaur and Piar Singh were able to draw from many years of Kapur Singh’s research regarding the life of Guru Nanak when compiling this book. 


In total, sixteen essays form the body of this work and all demonstrate a unique and independent way of thinking. These essays relate to a number of subjects from Guru Nanak’s observations of the society around him, his general life and vision, and the gurbani written by Guru Nanak. The advantage of discussing a range of subjects using a compilation of essays is that readers are able to pick up at any chapter without having read previous chapters. This is particularly useful for those who would like to understand specific elements of the life and philosophy of Guru Nanak.


This book is recommended to anyone who seeks to understand more about Guru Nanak’s philosophy and mindset, as well as how it has been put into practice. Kapur Singh’s reputation as a Sikh scholar, political theorist and philosopher is one that has inspired many Sikhs across the world. His insightful and thought provoking essays should have a place in the life of every Sikh.
