Nisan Te Hukamname

Description The Punjabi word "Nisan", means signature and "Hukamnama" means commandment or Instruction by the holy Sikh Gurus and prominent Sikh Religious shrines called "Takhats". This book contains specimens and interpretation of these Instructions. The Sikh Gurus beginning from Guru Arjan Dev to Guru Gobind Singh have been using these epistles as means of communication between them and their followers living at distant places. They reveal the intimacy of Guru-Sikh relationship, current issues of their times and Gurus' instructions about settling certain religious issues. After the Guru period, the "Takhats" have been using this mode. The editor has painstakingly arranged these rare documents chronologically and given valid description and interpretation of each item. It is a very systemic, scholarly collection and authentic valuable reference book for scholars and researchers.[edit]
