FOREWORD in accessing advante garde outpourings of the great Bhai Nand Lal.

Bhai Nand Lal ‘Goya’ (1633-1713), the great exegete of Sikhism, Gurdev Singh
occupies a unique place of honour and reverence among the Sikhs. His President

When Sardar Pritpal Singh of Canada proposed that his rendering USA
of Bhai Nand Lal’s works in English may be published by the Institute
of Sikh Studies, the idea was welcome as it would provide an easy
access to valuable Sikh lore to the younger generation who do not
know Persian. The Institute, therefore, accepted the proposal and Sardar
Pritpal Singh was asked to send his translation. It is an English rendering
of the Punjabi translation of Bhai Nand Lal’s verses done by renowned
scholar Dr Ganda Singh that had been published by the Punjabi
University, Patiala under the title Granthavali of Bhai Nand Lal.
It was considered apt that before publication, the script should be
seen through by an expert well versed in Persian and English. Prof.
Gurdial Singh ‘Aarif’ who is well known Persian scholar (Munshi Fazil)
and had been teaching English at Government College, Chandigarh was
requested to check its language. He has accomplished the job deftly
and has also gone through the printed proofs.
I appreciate Sardar Pritpal Singh for taking this praiseworthy
initiative and producing his scholarly lucubration. He also collected
funds to help the Institute defray its publication expenses. Prof. (Dr)
Kirpal Singh, the eminent historian and scholar of Persian, who was

works in Persian.
