Bhagat Bani in the Adi Granth
This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to understand various issues related to the presence of the writings of the bhagats in the Sikh scripture, the Adi Granth. It describes the selection and treatment of the Bhagat Bani encountered in the Adi Granth collection, and the canonization of the Bhagat Bani. It then examines the various issues related to the Bhagat Bani from the perspectives of the notion of a universe of discourse, the theory of the Divine Name, the idea of religious pluralism, and the issue of self-definition. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
