The Nirankari Sikhs

Book by John C.B. Webster, The Nirankari Sikhs Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Nirankari Sikhs books, This is a new edition of Dr. Webster's, The Nirankari Sikhs (1979), which has been recognized as 'single most important work on the history of Baba Dayal and his successors'. It updates the earlier edition not only by dealing with the past forty years of Nirankari history but also by taking into account subsequent scholarship on the history of Sikhism, especially during the first half of the nineteenth century. Further, it also provides two additional primary sources of nineteenth century Nirankari history along with the nine included in the earlier edition. This new edition will be of value not only to those scholars interested in Nirankari history but also to those seeking a fuller understanding of the evolution of Sikh identity since the nineteenth century. Sikh identity has been a major issue for Nirankaris in recent decades because they have been confused with the Sant Nirankari Mandal which makes no claims to a Sikh identity. Nirankaris, like other Sikhs, base their beliefs and practices upon the Guru Granth Sahib and revere the ten Sikh gurus. For this reason they view themselves, and are considered by other Sikhs, to be minority group within Sikhism. They are distinguished from other Sikhs, most obviously in not fully embracing the Khalsa tradition of the Sikhs and in having a continuing hereditary line of human gurus. How such similarities and differences have affected their own, and the very nature of, Sikh identity over the past two centuries is an important part of this history. Please note: Taylor & Francis does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Book by Hari Ram Gupta, History Of The Sikhs Evolution Of Sikh Confederacies 1708 69 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download History Of The Sikhs Evolution Of Sikh Confederacies 1708 69 books, Illustrations: 2 Maps and 2 Illustrations Description: History of the Sikhs planned as a five-volume survey aiming to present a comprehensive view of the rise, growth and development of Sikh thought and action in every direction. This volume Evolution of Sikh Confederacies 1708-69, is second in the series. The whole series is based on original contemporary sources in Persian, Marathi, Gurumukhi, Urdu, Hindi and English known to exist in India and abroad. The dominating theme of the second volume is the Mughal-Sikh and Sikh-Afghan contest for the lordship of the Punjab. The first period of the struggle between the Mughal Emperors and the Sikhs under Banda Bahadur lasted from 1709 to 1716, when Banda was executed. The second period of conflict was from 1716 to 1753 between the Sikhs and five Mughal viceroys of the Punjab-Abdus Samad Khan, his son Zakariya Khan, his sons Yahya Khan and Shahnawaz Khan and their cousin Muin-ul-Mulk, popularly called Mir Mannu. The third period extended from 1754 to 1768 in the strife against Ahmad Shah Durrani who had annexed the Punjab in 1752. He inflicted the heaviest blows on the Sikhs like the one struck on the Marathas at Panipat in 1761. Having sacrificed about two lakhs of young men in the whole struggle the Sikhs came out victorious. The two chapters at the end give an account of Mughlani Begam and Adina Beg Khan, the last Muslim viceroys of the Punjab.

Anandpur Chronicles

Book by Peter Johal, Anandpur Chronicles Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Anandpur Chronicles books, ...In todays racially-charged landscape, the customs of Sikhs, particularly the customary turban for males, have been misunderstood, and Sikh men have been victims of hate crimes after being mistaken for terrorists... ...In many ways, this book lifts the veil of the unknown regarding Sikhism. Anyone who would like to learn more about this historic culture, but is unwilling to dig through mounds of research and articles will find this book of photography highly educational and enriching. The US Review of Books From the outside, Sikhism and the Sikh population, has been diluted into a pool along other religions that come from the same geographical region. Sikhism, in fact, is quite unique in its own right. Religion, culture, and mores have features that are shared with none. Equality and humanity are some of these features that separate this particular faith, and protecting these beliefs have had turbulent times in history. Anandpur was an integral part of this protection of beliefs. Anandpur was first settled by the ninth teacher of the Sikhs, Guru Tegh Bahadur. He settled away from other Sikh centres at the time, due to corruption within the religion. He raised his son, the tenth teacher of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, whom raised his sons here as well. It was the tenth teacher he made the most significant contributions in Anandpur. While it was Guru Tegh Bahadur that sparked the inspiration, after being beheaded for not converting religions, the stage was set for the tenth teacher to lead Sikhs into an identity that was all their own. This was not pertaining only in their religious belief, but communicating to the world symbolically with the designation of the 5 Ks Sikhs wear to identify themselves throughout society. I am putting forth a tour of the great historical location of Anandpur through my photos and brief history of Anandpur, that I hope people will enjoy, and hopefully inspires more education into a very deep history in the relatively short existence of this faith. The English translations of names are gender neutral translations, in an attempt to support some of the equality issues.
