vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ki fateh

i have a friend ive known for about 3 years. he has started keeping a joora but is cleanshaven (no dhari). He will soon keep a dhari, he is very passionate about gurbani sahib and has started to recite daily.

Hes asked me to get him a book on das guru sahibs - here im real stuck.

i dont want to give a british written / published book on our satguru's because the sakhiya are told from a westernised perspective and giv a lesser feeling of the lives of our satguru's. they are also generally very summertive and brief.

sangat jee, please recommend a GOOD detailed sikhi book on the lives of our Satguru's (and their families). Please also let me know where i can purchase this book (india or uk)

muchas gracias

i had a colleague from africa, who once said to me that he was a christian who was thinking of converting to islam. I told him that before he converts i wished to give him a book on Sikhi. This was only a small book published by the Sikh Missionary Society southall, and it was called A brief introduction to Sikhism".

Anyhows i gave him the book, about a week later he comes up to me, and says that the book and the beleif system of the Sikhs is amazing and how it had really opened his eyes. Then he asked me why dont you tell the world about these teachings, why do you keep them to yourself ? I had no answer.

I gave him the only copy i had but if you can get your hands on something like this, breif and beautiful to start with it would be good.

Ask yourself wether he is ready to read a massive in-depth book about or a small concise one. That will help you.
