The philosophy of Guru Nanak is a religious philosophy, which lays emphasis on the devotion to God. It is a mirror of Sikh Religion. Guru Nanak, the founder of this religion, was its first and foremost preacher. He unfolded his thoughts himself throughout India, crossed the Indian borders at several points and propagated his mission in Ceylon, Tibet, china, Middle East etc., and covered the major centres of prominent world religions.
This book is an attempt to bring before the world the thought-currents of the great guru, which made a great impact on the contemporary world-scene. Even today, we find the impress of his ideas on several groups o people among non-Sikhs in distant areas.
The Philosophy system of Guru Nanak has its metaphysics, ethics, mysticism and cosmology. In this book, in the light of these aspects, a comparative study has been made with other religious systems of the world. It has also been thought necessary to compare the thought of Guru Nanak with the six systems of Hindu philosophy, the Bhakti cults of India, the ancient philosophers and the modern thought. The appendices contain the thought-content of the Guru in his two major poems Japji and Asa ki Var. A short chapter on Amrit has been added in the appendices in order to correlate the thought of Guru Nanak with the thought of Guru Gobind Singh.
