An engaging biographical account of one of the most celebrated figures in Sikh history, Guru Govind Singh, and a selection of his best writings.

Guru Govind Singh remains to this day one of the most celebrated figures in Sikh history. The tenth Sikh Guru from the line of Guru Nanak, he was born in a time fraught with perils, when people faced persecution and tyranny at the hands of the Mughals under the intolerant Aurangzeb.

A Short Sketch of the Life and Works of Guru Govind Singh traces the roots of this great Sikh leader, from his birth to the institution of the Khalsa Pant and his struggles against the enemies of his faith. Also contained in this book are passages on Sikhism as it exists today, the religious tolerance that has remained a highlight of Sikh culture and the portrayal of the tenth Guru as a miracle man.

Author Bio: Bhagat Lakshman Singh (1863-1944) was born in Rawalpindi to Hindu parents, Bhagat Kahan Chand and Bhagatani Gurditti. In 1895 he received Sikh rites from Baba Khem Singh Bedi, a direct descendant of Guru Nanak.

In 1899 he launched The Khalsa, the first Sikh weekly paper in English language, where he expressed strong support for the ongoing Singh Sabha Movement. However, two years later he was forced to close it down owing to financial constraints. In 1929 he re-launched The Khalsa, continuing with his campaign for the Singh Sabha reforms. He also contributed articles to The Tribune among other journals. He wrote two books A Short Sketch of the Life and Works of Guru Govind Singh (1909) and Sikh Martyrs (1929).
