An attempt has been made in this book to provide the essential historical background of developments along with a consideration of the spiritual insights contributed by Punjabi genius. While doing so, the argument has been illustrated with selections from the relevant source materials. The quotations from Sri Guru Granth Sahib and other Sikh sources as well as from the Sufi poets have been rendered into English by the author himself.

Effort has been made to preserve both the spirit of the message as well as its poetic quality as far as was possible. For the translation of quotations from Sanskrit sources, the author had to rely on the Hindi Bhashyas as well as some available English translations.

Spirituality means being related to spirit in contrast to the tangible or material. Its sublime reaches pertain to the relationship between man and God. Although the spiritual urge is present in man everywhere, it seems safe to say that there is something special about the genius of the Punjab. The Punjab's spiritual heritage is not only among the most ancient, it is also among the most varied.
