2 Prem Sumarag: The Testimony of a Sanatan Sikh

W.H. McLeod

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0-19-567152-X / 9780195671520, First Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
This translation of Randhir Singh s text of the Prem Sumarag (or Param Sumarag) deals with the history of the Khalsa Rahit. The importance of the Prem Sumarag lies in the fact that it is a Sanatan product, part of a tradition which has been over time overshadowed by the more dominant Tat Khalsa version of the Rahit. This text provides an extended Sanatan account of Sikh ceremonies and the Sikh way of life. It gives us a detailed account of Sikh ideals and what was conceived to be noble practice by the anonymous persons who wrote it. The style of the Prem Sumarag differs dramatically from that of other rahit-namas. There has long been a dispute about the dating of the Prem Sumarag. While some say that it was composed in the eighteenth century, other maintain that it was a nineteenth-century work. Two features stand out in this important text: one is the belief in the gods of the Hindu tradition, and the other is the apocalyptic setting. In this important work, Hew McLeod provides an ins ightful look at this classic text that presents an accurate ideal of the Panth during the opening decades of the nineteenth century.

4 The Goindval Pothis: The Earliest Extant Source of the Sikh Canon (Harvard Oriental Series, No. 51)

Gurinder Singh Mann

Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachussets, USA, 1996, 0-674-35618-7 / 9780674356184, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, 19 Cms x 27 Cms 
This volume explores the earliest available version of the Sikh canon. The book contains the first critical description and partial edition of the Goindval Pothis, a set of proto-scriptural manuscripts prepared in the 1570s. The manuscripts also contain a number of hymns by non-Sikh saints, some of them not found elsewhere. Through a meticulous analysis of the contents of these rare manuscripts, G. M. Singh establishes their place and importance in the history of Sikh canon formation. The book will be of great interest to scholars of comparative canon studies and of medieval Indian literature. Printed Pages: 233 with 18 half-tones and 2 tables. 003178
