The Oxford handbook of Sikh studies by Pashaura Singh( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook is divided into eight thematic sections that explore different 'expressions' of Sikhism. Historical, literary, ideological, institutional, and artistic expressions are considered in turn, followed by discussion of Sikhs in the Diaspora, and of caste and gender in the Panth. Each section begins with an essay by a prominent scholar in the field, providing an overview of the topic. The following essays provide detail and further treat the fluid, multivocal nature of both the Sikh past and present. The Handbook concludes with a section considering future directions in Sikh studies. -- from dust jacket
The Guru Granth Sahib : canon, meaning and authority by Pashaura Singh( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Guru Granth Sahib is an important study that explores the concept of scripture from the Sikh perspective and seeks to understand the processes of canon formation and those by which meaning and authority are vested in the Adi Granth, literally, the 'first book' of the Sikhs." "Pashaura Singh examines rare manuscripts of the Adi Granth from the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, and looks at the process which led to the composition of Guru Arjan's version in 1604. He incorporates new manuscript evidence that has become available over the last two decades and offers a clear and detailed exposition of the recent scholarly findings being published in both Punjabi and English. Singh, taking a radically different approach from the dominate mode of textual analysis, argues for a plurality of interpretation and the inexhaustible hermeneutic potential of the Adi Granth. He goes on to examine the role of the Adi Granth as 'Guru' in the personal piety and corporate identity of the Sikh community. The contemporary debate within the study of religions on the status of scripture as a cross-cultural phenomenon is also addressed." "This new work offers a fresh perspective on the general notion of canon, its formation, its relationship with a religious community, and the processes through which the community appropriates and interprets the canon and keeps it alive. It will be extremely useful for specialists in religous, scriptual and Sikh studies, and of immense value for general readers interested in the roots of canonical meaning and authority in the Sikh tradition in particular, and religions in general."--BOOK JACKET

The Bhagats of the Guru Granth Sahib : Sikh self-definition and the Bhagat Bani by Pashaura Singh( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pashaura Singh examines the impact of Sufi tradition in the Punjab by studying the Sikh Gurus' responses to the work of Shaikh Farid. He considers Kabir and the Sant tradition of northern India and also focuses on the Vaishnava Bhakti tradition as represented by various bhagats ('devotees'). Finally, the author discusses the status of the Bhagat Bani ('Utterances of the Bhagats') within the Sikh tradition and its tremendous influence of the people of Punjab." "The Bhagat Bani provides an excellent example of scriptural adaptation in a cross-cultural spirit, offering a deeper understanding of religious pluralism and new answers to the basic question of who we are and what we do as a faith community. This lucid and engaging volume will be read with great interest by scholars and students of religious scriptural and Sikh studies, as well as general readers interested in Sikhism."--BOOK JACKET
