The Primary aim of this work is to give the reader an idea of the fundamentals of Sikhism and to bring younger people into contact with the various streams of religious experience, thought and practice.

The important thing to note abut Sikhism is its inherent eclecticism and resilience. It has a capacity to take in heterogeneous doctrines, and resolve them into a coherent, positive and distinctive philosophy. The Sikh weltanschauung or world-view is no arbitrary or forced synthesis, doctrinal marriage of convenience. If anything, Sikhism jealously defends its sovereign and unique character.

It may be asserted that Sikhism is a thoroughly modern and progressive religion. From the beginning it rejected orthodoxy, formalism and feudalistic values. It sought t liberate man and make him conscious of his high vocation and high destiny. Such a revolutionary creed was bound to create a new race of men and women, leonine in aspect, vigorous and athletic, open and spontaneous, full of joie de vivre, with their eyes set on the stars. No wonder, the Sikh psyche endorses and promotes the time-spirit.
