This book, Ardas of the Sikhs, is an inclusive, yet discreet work on the subject. While acknowledging the universality of prayer and its efficacy, the author attends to this multisensate phenomenon in all its dimensions-historical, hermeneutical, psychological, philosophical, etc. He does this with all defence to the various other extant spiritual disciplines.
Ardas for the Sikhs is the way of life ordained by the Gurus. It is but another way of simran or Practising the Presence of God. It pithily condenses the cosmic glory, spiritual experiences and ethical values enshrined in the perennial holy word of the Adi Granth.
