Dictionary of Guru Granth Sahib - Surindar Singh Kohli
Roman - Gurmukhi - English
The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the latest sacred book of Asia. It was compiled by Guru Arjan, the fifth Sikh Guru in 1604. It contains the compositions of not only of some of the Sikh Gurus, but also of some promi¬nent Indian Saints including Jaideva of Bengal (of 12th Century), Farid Shakarganj of West Punjab (of 12th-13th Century). These compositions manifest synthesis of Indian Thought, an exposition of the ideal life of an individual and society and a consumma¬tion of Indian culture. The path of life enunciated by the Sikh Gurus and the Saints in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib is universal in character and common for all humanity. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib contains well-known mantras and shabads which are being used in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, for example the Mool Mantra, followed by the complete Jap Ji Sahib, as well as numerous other mantras and shabads.
The scope of this Gurmukhi dictionary is multi¬dimensional: it contains the lexicon of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib in order of Roman Alphabet so that western, English speaking readers can find the required word easily, though the original word has been given in Gurmukhi Alphabet, too. The etymology of each word as far as it is known, has also been appended and meanings of the lexicon have been given in simple and to-the-point-English equivalents. This is the first attempt to prepare such a useful dictionary for an English speaking reader, who would now be able to make a search in this great Spiritual Treasure.
