People in India form images of Jesus Christ that link up with their own culture. Hindus have given Jesus a place among the teachers and gods of their own religion, seeing in his life something of the wisdom and mysticism that is so central to Hinduism. Christians in India also make use of the concepts provided by Hinduism when they wish to express the meaning of Christ.Thus, in any case, Jesus is—for Hindus and Christians—a guru, a teacher of wisdom who speaks with divine authority. But for many Hindu philosophers and Christian theologians there is much more that can be said about him within the Indian framework. He can be described as anavatara, a divine descent, or linked to the Brahman, the all-encompassing Reality. This study looks at both Hindu and Christian views of Christ, starting with that of the Hindu reformer Rammohan Roy at the beginning of the nineteenth century, as well as those of the first Christian theologians of India. The views of Mahatma Gandhi and the monks of the Ramakrishna Mission are discussed, and those of influential Christian schools such as the Ashram movement anddalit theology.Five intermezzos indicate how artists in India portray Jesus Christ.

In this translation of some of Guru Nanak s finest devotional poems, the fifteenth century founder of the Sikh religion points the way to self-realisation by love, devotion, and service to man and God. The hymns have as direct and strong a message today as they did when they were first composed. The elements of faith and passion are sensitively brought out in Arpita Singh s paintings which, in colour and inspired drawing, heighten the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of Guru Nanak s divine verse.

Guru English

Guru English is a bold reconceptualization of the scope and meaning of cosmopolitanism, examining the language of South Asian religiosity as it has flourished both inside and outside of its original context for the past two hundred years. The book surveys a specific set of religious vocabularies from South Asia that, Aravamudan argues, launches a different kind of cosmopolitanism into global use. Using "Guru English" as a tagline for the globalizing idiom that has grown up around these religions, Aravamudan traces the diffusion and transformation of South Asian religious discourses as they shuttled between East and West through English-language use. The book demonstrates that cosmopolitanism is not just a secular Western "discourse that results from a disenchantment with religion, but something that can also be refashioned from South Asian religion when these materials are put into dialogue with contemporary social move-ments and literary texts. Aravamudan looks at "religious forms of neoclassicism, nationalism, Romanticism, postmodernism, and nuclear millenarianism, bringing together figures such as Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, and Deepak Chopra with Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce, Robert Oppenheimer, and Salman Rushdie. Guru English analyzes writers and gurus, literary texts and religious movements, and the political uses of religion alongside the literary expressions of religious teachers, showing the cosmopolitan interconnections between the Indian subcontinent, the British Empire, and the American New Age.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib plays a very important part in the life of the Sikh Community. It is read regularly in Gurdwaras and occasionally in homes on happy or sad occasions. The reading of the whole Granth is called Akhand-paath (non stop recitation or reading). Selections for morning and evening prayers are taken from the Granth and read daily by Sikhs. The whole life of a Sikh revolves around this book.Despite being such an important book for the whole Sikh Community it is also true that the Granth is a closed book for many Sikhs born outside India, as well as for the majority of other people both Asians and Westerners, who simply cannot read the original Gurumukhi script of the Granth or understand it meaning.

“Contemplating one’s Guru is like contemplating one’s own body. Contemplating the infinity of existence is like contemplating Shiva. The image of the Guru is the root of meditation. The feet of the Guru are the root of worship. The words of the Guru are the root of mantras. The compassion of the Guru is the root of liberation. By reciting the Guru Gita one attains infinite fruits. All sins are nullified and all afflictions are destroyed. It takes away the fear of time and death and destroys all adversity.”

‘There is only one God and all are equal before him.’ The founding father of Sikhism; Guru Nanak Dev was born in a little village near Lahore in Pakistan in the year 1469. In an age of religious orthodoxy; hate and disharmony; Guru Nanak came to preach and convert; to blaze a new trail. Sreelata Menon traces the life and times of this spiritual master. She brings to life stories of the birth; childhood and the search for enlightenment of a little boy who; unhappy with the social conditions existing around him; sought to make a difference as he grew up. With Mardana; his best friend and companion; Guru Nanak spent twenty years and more travelling the world to spread his message of love; truth; compassion and One God. Come rain or shine; braving all odds; winning over all kinds of people and performing miracles through the power of prayer; he spread the word of God. This is the story of an extraordinary man; who was the very embodiment of the love and compassion that he preached
