In clear and simple language, this brief essay, Appreciating Sikhism, provides answers to questions such as: Who is a Sikh? Are Sikhs Hindus? Is Sikhism a blend of Hinduism and Islam? How does Sikhism differ from other religions?
Sikhism's beliefs and practices are outlined in relation to Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism and Judaism. Their common features and differences are noted, but no religion is shown to be better than any other. They are just different; and the differences are significant.
In four relatively self-contained parts, each with a clear focus, this book covers key Sikh beliefs, practices, philosophy, and history, drawing on the latest publications. Succint Tables and Annexes provide supplementary information. The writing style is non-academic; and original color photographs bring the subject to life.
