It is the autobiography of Sant Baba Harnam Singh Ji (Rampu Khera) Sant Ji was a Pooran Bhraimgyani, who's soul was merged with waheguru and this book gives a detailed account of his life and spritual experiences. This was one of the first books i read about sikhi and served as a big inspiration to my sikhi path.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!
Protect your children tonight wherever they are sleeping
And let them know the world does not have to be like this
Place a kiss upon each of their foreheads
And remind them oh so gently
That there are reasons to be hopeful
And reasons for them to dream beautiful dreams.

What was inspiring about the Diary of Anne Frank?
Posted 29 January 2009 - 10:11 AM
flashman and the mountain of light. a sad story about the demise of the khalsa raj and the destruction of the khalsa.
I wouldnt recommend that book to anyone under-18. Actually the same goes for the diary of anne frank. but yeah, Flashman and the Mountain of Light was pretty interesting and melancholy as the khalsa raj sounded like a great place, until it was invaded.
