This book is an attempt to throw new light on the authenticity of Sikh scripture, i.e. Sri Guru Granth Sahib. The author, S. Daljeet Singh, delivered Guru Tegh Bahadur commemorative lectures for the year 1987 in the University and in one of these lectures he established the authenticity of hand-written Bir presently preserved at Kartarpur, District Jullundur (Punjab).
Among the revelatory religions of the world, Sikhism has a unique place. This is so because the Kartarpuri Bir of Sri Guru Granth Sahib was authenticated by the fifth master, Guru Arjan Dev Ji himself. But certain doubts regarding this established fact have been wilfully created by some scholars. This University has already published a book "Kartarpuri Bir De Darshan" written by Dr. Bhai Jodh Singh, the founder Vice-Chancellor of the Punjabi University Patiala. Despite this the controversy regarding the authenticity of Kartarpuri Bir persists. This has motivated the learned Sikh scholar, S. Daljeet Singh, to settle the controversy once for all. He has been able to do it very ably by adducing arguments based on the internal evidence from the original copy of Kartarpuri Bir. The present volume seeks to dispel many erroneous notions and misconceptions about Kartarpuri Bir and the doctrine of the Sikhs.
The second lecture deals with the doctrinal aspect of the Sikhs. The uniqueness of the Sikh thought is discussed in detail in this lecture entitled "The Integrated Logic And Unity of Sikhism", with the result that this small book has covered the scriptural and doctrinal aspects of the Sikh religion. I believe that these well-argued essays will prove very useful to the scholars interested in Sikhism.
