While writing Roop Gobind ka, Raj Khalsay ka; Sikka sonay ka in Panjabi, I felt that there was a need for an English translation for the benefit of our next generation and those who cannot read Panjabi. Also, there were many requests for an English translation when the book was published in Panjabi and distributed widely to the global Sikh Sangat. However, the difficulty was in finding a Gursikh whose proficiency in English (to which western educated young Sikhs could relate) matched his in‐depth understanding of the Sikh way of life. With Guru Ji’s blessing, Sardar Kesar Singh Mand introduced me to Sardar Gurmukh Singh, retired Principal officer from the British civil service. My prayers were answered and this project has now been completed.
I am grateful to Gursikhs from many countries who have given me much encouragement and support to produce this English publication. I would like to thank Sardar Gurmukh Singh Ji for a most readable, accurate and educational translation which will also help the next generation to understand the main Gurmatt words and concepts. I also thank Sardar Kesar Singh Ji Mand for his message and continued support and advice. I thank the following for their invaluable support in proof reading: Master Santokh Singh Nijran, Nottingham, Bhai Onkar Singh and Bhai Kuldip Singh, Slough, and Bhai Kamaljit Singh, Bradford. This project could not have been completed without the most dedicated and untiring support of Bhai Sukhdev Singh Ji, Bibi Amarjit Kaur and Bibi Jagdeep Kaur Kudhail.
The daily Ardaas of this humble servant before Waheguru Ji is to bestow the divine gift of Naam simraan and the desire to do sewa on all.
Servant of the Sangat
