Cambridge Studies in Religious Traditions #3: The Feminine Principle in the Sikh Vision of the Transcendent

Cambridge Studies in Religious Traditions #3: The Feminine Principle in the Sikh Vision of the Transcendent Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work is an original and critical interpretation of Sikh literature from a feminist perspective. It analyzes the rich feminine imagery and symbolism that pervades the divine-human encounter in this literature, and gives a new authenticity to a relatively neglected religious tradition. Nikky Singh shows convincingly that Sikh Gurus and poets did not want the feminine principle to serve just as a figure of speech or literary device, but was intended, rather, to pervade the whole life of the Sikhs. Her work thus reverses an androcentric approach to Sikhism.

Synopsis:

A critical interpretation of Sikh literature from a feminist perspective.
