  1. I thought I'd start a thread so we could share interesting books we are reading. They don't have to be Sikhi orientated. I'm currently reading: Frances Kray: The Tragic Bride by Jacky Hyams I grew up in the East End of London and the legend of the Kray twins is one that is part of the local folklore. I started reading narratives that went past the image they so successfully created for themselves with a book called Bringing Down The Krays: Finally the truth about Ronnie and Reggie by the man who took them down by Bobby Teale. The book about Frances is very in
  2. Well this guy was the 1st person to translate, Guru Granth Sahib Ji, he also was hired by British Christians and he was German. Anyone read his book?
  3. Does anyone in the sangat know where I can find the sanchian of the book "Khalsa Sudhar Taru ", I have the fifth sanchi from punjabi digital library but can't find the others?
  4. Gurfateh Jee Does anyone have any experience of ordering from any online book stores based in India. Just wanted to know if they are reliable and if the books will actually be shipped out or is it risky? Any recommendations?
  5. I am wanting to know what books I should read of Sikhi. I prefer English, as my punjabi isn't too strong. Ant good recommendations?
  6. I have recently just got into Sikhi. I'm a born Sikh, and just know the basics. I want to learn. Please recommend me good books in English.
  7. Been reading old punjabi books recently and they have a page titled "bhumika" what does that mean? Its normally just the author talking about the book and subject. And then "thathkra" I guess means the content? As under thathkra they list the content of the book and what is is discussed in what page. Also some1 gave me this old translation of Guru Nanaks janamsakhi it's like a punjabi translation and under the title it says "bha : chattr singh and jivan singh" What does "bha" mean are they the authors? Never heard these words before.

  9. VJKKVJKF i love to read books about sikhi, especially autobiographies and history. I have read these books already: In English: Se Kinehiya Autobiography of Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Autobiography of Bhai Rama Singh (In search of the true guru) Warrior Saints (volume 1) Chalda Vaheer Jatha life of Bhai Rajinder Singh ji Kurbani 1978 Zafarnama Hymns from Bhai Gurdass Compositions Ascending Spirits Bhai VIjay Singh Cosmic Symphony In punjabi: Jail chitthiya Puratan Itihaasik Jeevania Puratan
  10. I have never really read these kind of books before. Ie such as the guide to happiness by the Dali lama. Or other similar type of books for gaining knowledge. Where authors write about how to succeed or live life to the fullest. Many of these books usually focus on the mind and psychology in some way or other. Anyone read something they can recommend?
  11. This is for those who may be interested, I have had the opportunity to write a number of books recently, initially they were for sponsors of the podcasts but due to demand I have decided to put some of them out on a self publication site. Slowly they will increase in number with the Sarkutavali Teeka and Gagar Cho sagar also being added in June and August respetively. At the moment there are three books available to purchase which are the 'Sahaskriti and Gatha Teeka by Mahant Ganesha Singh', 'Matra by Baba Sri Chand Ji' and 'The Jap Ji Sahib Katha 01 - Mul Mantra Katha by Sant Gurbachan Si
  12. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Why is literature on Indian martial arts so rare? There are countless books on Chinese, Japanese and Korean martial arts, but probably only about 5 Kalaripayattu books, and only 4 Gatka books (two in English and two in Punjabi). The first Gatka book was published in 1936 by K. S. Akali. He refers to Gatka as a ‘sport’ and exponents as ‘players’. No association to Sikh warriorhood, etc. And the pentra doesn’t seem correct. Also, it only covers the soti; no dhal talvar, barcha, etc. Then there is Nanak Dev Singh Khalsa’s
  13. Hello people this is a bit or harmless (depends who you ask) advertising to let you know that for the past year I have been sunning a podcast called Sikhism in Snippits and through this the sponsors have enabled me to write and publish a number of books. These are Sampardaic and in English. The opportunity was taken to translate and promote Sikh books and literature not available. If you are interested they can all be found ont he link below. Please take a look and if interested you can order directly off the site. If you have any questions please contact me on kam1825@hotmail.com
  14. Thought I'd start a thread about books worth reading. They don't have to be Sikhi related. I picked up: Confessions of an economic hit man by John Perkins. Have been told it's a must read.

    Reading and information

    Wkjk wjkf, I was wondering which Sikh scholars are in line and put forward puratan Sikh principles as some such as mcleod or Singh sabha scholars will avoid key aspects that were important features to the Akali Nihang Khalsa and the Nirmala Samparda.
  16. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh We have released a free online library, which is easily accessible, readable and searchable.

  17. We started small organization and we have currently roughly about 25 kids. We have one full dedicated one library room. We have around 1000 books of every kind. Its been over 7 months and i have seen no interest of sikh kids picking up the book and read them. We tried to give them reading assignment and or public speech project but they go along with the way writer wrote the book. Lets take an example of in famous bed time sikh stories, the kids don't connect with the content at all. They bring their own book such as diary of the wimpy kids and so on and some do read for hours. My thinking i
  18. Apologies if someone is wondering why I start topics in this section of the site. I don't consider myself an intellectual in any form; too much of a pendu for that, lol. Anyway, are there any books which look at Sikh history in the 20th century in reference to our experiences in India, preferably 1947 to the 1990's? Basically, how we've been treated by the Indian government as a collective, not just individual experiences on a local level? Are there such books?
