Selected and translated by the eminent writer Khushwant Singh, Hymns Of Guru Nanak are some of the finest devotional poems from the sacred book of the Sikhs, the 'Adi Granth'. The hymns that follow the introductory chapter tell us, in lyrical verse and exquisite parable, of Guru Nanak’s complete devotion to God, of his great humanism, of his intense love of nature and of the many journeys he undertook to spread the message. The hymns use imagery that a householder and nature lover would be familiar with and so reinforce the concept that a person must make an internal journey to find God and the path lies in love, devotion and service to mankind. Each of the hymns is set in a particular raga that invests the poem with a certain emotion. 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.
