Dus Guru Mahal

Description In the male-dominated Indian society, only a fraction of literature has been written about the role of women in general and the role of female partners of Indian sages and other great persons. This collection of articles highlights the role played by the wives of Sikh Gurus. The common link that binds these female Sikh heroines is their sense of self devotion and complete commitment to the Sikh Gurus and their ideology. Each of them not only rendered commendable service to the community of devotees visiting the Gurus, but also gave a practical orientation to the Guru's teachings and ideology. All of them are portrayed as paragons of virtue, faith, service and selfless life of complete surrender the contributors have painstakingly collected the factual information about each of the wives of Sikh Gurus and projected them as promoters of Sikh tradition of marital fidelity, community service and complete association with their partner's mission their portrayal is as lofty as the status of their heroines.[edit]
