Whatever the doctrines the ‘Guru-Panth’ has prescribed-specific for the Panth and its adherents, these are endorsed in the Sikh Code of Conduct and Conventions. The Code is an ideological, legal and historically-religious document and its language is quite precise, well-knit and genuinely restrictive. Having probed through the prime texts related with Sikh religion and its ethics and the history for years, this is the most concise text prepared for our convenience, and it is duly approved by the designated 'Guru-panth’. The writer has, in this book, carried out the detailed elucidation of this prominent document in a very decent and distinct manner. The writer himself is not a preacher only of the Sikh Code, he is, heart and soul, dedicated also to it. It is such an endeavour of peerless pertinence through which every Gursikh shall be able to see through his ownself quite clearly and thus assess for himself as how much seriously he is dedicated to the 'Guru-Panth'.
