This work, which occupies a unique place in the world of Punjabi letters, has been sponsored by the department of Bhai Vir Singh Studies of this University, and has been put into the present mould by Professor Gurbachan Singh Talib, formerly Head of the Department of Guru Nanak Sikh Studies. Rana Surat Singh embodies the essence of the ethical teaching of religion and also reflects the cultural milieu of the Punjab in the period following its occupation by the East Indian Company in 1849. The English rendering is a valuable addition to the literature of interpretation of Indian cultural thought through English.

Remarkable for its exposition of the Sikh mystical approach, this work has dilated wonderfully on the themes of love, true greatness, renunciation, bliss, (in the Epistles left by Rana Surat Singh) and on the true concept of service in bringing about universal weal, Sarbat ka bhala and the other related ideals of Sikhism. These portions contain noble poetry of the meditative cast, flowing with an even cadence. It is altogether a mine of knowledge of the Sikh ideals and contains remarkable poetry of a high order.
