The Sikh Encyclopedia encapsulates accurate information in a specialised area of knowledge and is indispensable in the fast moving age. The subject matter is under massive change and additions due to the rapid translation of material into English. The need for instant knowledge in huge volume and in a social structure which is rapidly changing are making inaccessible much that outside one's immediate domain of concentration and reach. So books and the old "scriptures" are being used less and less. At a time when Sikhism is attracting worldwide notice, an online reference work embracing all essential facets of this vibrant faith is a singular contribution to the world of knowledge.

It includes a total of about 3000 entries on different subject titles relating to Sikh life and letters, history and philosophy, customs and rituals, social and religious movements, art and architecture, locales and shrines. Although it is not an easy task to restate and repack the entire range of information and knowledge of a people yet an attempt has been made here precisely to define the doctrines and terms of Sikhism in a direct, terse and tight writing. It should be of immense use and help in providing the background and facts necessary for the comprehension of Sikh thought and symbolism.

Comprehensive but concise, titanic but torse, exhaustive but elegant,this Encyclopedia covers different aspects of sikh lifeand letters, history and philosophy, customs and rituals, social and religious movements, art and architecture, locates and shrines.
