The fundamentals and the doctrines of the Sikh religion and its world-view have clearly and completely been embodied in the Guru Granth. Further, the Ten Masters (the Sikh Gurus) have in their lives, apart from demonstrating the principles of their religion, shown and led the path of the ideal life. Among the scriptures of the world, the Guru Granth has two singular distinctions. It is the only scripture that has the world of the Gurus compiled and authenticated by the prophet himself.

Sikhism does not believe in any of these paths, Nor does it believe that there can be different paths for the ideal life; nor that the mode of religious worship or belief can be attuned to the temperament or the psyche of the seeker. The Sikh Gurus have laid only one path for man. It is the life of creative love in accordance with the will of God. Therefore, persons viewing Sikhism as growth of the Indian religious tradition will not only fail to understand it, but also misinterpret it. According to the Gurus they had a prophetic message to deliver and a mission to fulfill.

The object of the book is two-fold: first to explain the identity, unity and integrity of the Sikh gospel, and secondly undertake, on the basis of the essentials of each system, a classification of the principal religions of the world and, in that context, to bring out the lace of Sikhism among them.
