Style of the Lion: The Sikhs

This book on Sikh culture, philosophy, and practices is very suitable for people who want to know more about this relatively modern faith. The word Sikh means student and the faith presents tools to search for Truth and apply them to one’s life. The focus on personal spirituality and expression of this through engagement and service in society is the hallmark of Sikhism. The guiding force of the word IkOnKar or oneness in all creation encourages one to see past caste, race, gender. The focus on search for truth is also totally compatible with modern concepts of human rights and the scientific method.
