GRANTH SRI GURMAT NIRNAYA SAGAR by Pandit Tara Singh Narolam is a pioneer work on Sikh theology and philosophy. Completed in 1934 Bk/AD 1877 and published in 1955 Bk/AD 1898 by Buta Singh at the AngloSanskrit Press, Lahore, the book is written in the Gurmukhi script and, in its printed form, contains at the end some tracts as well. These tracts include Pnkhid Prakaran, Akdl Murati Darshan and Vdhiguru Sabaddrth.The book deals with points such as the status of the Guru Granth Sahib as revelation, the need of a tikd or exegesis, the philosophy of bhakli, the doctrine of avatar or incarnation and Guru Nanak as an avatar, the rahil or Sikh code of conduct, Sikh ethics, the relevance of rites and rituals and the importance of Guru in the Sikh tradition. Another important point that the book makes is that Sikhism is a distinct and separate faith and not just a sect of Hinduism.
