"Prof. Puran Singh was a genius of his times. His writings touch new heights of spiritual experiences in a powerful but simple language. The historians’ accounts of the Sikh Gurus narrate the political, social and other events exhaustively but they lack the spiritual horizon of the Great Masters. It was Puran Singh, who touched this aspect in depth. Himself a mystic par-excellence, he narrates the stories in his own way. The flow of the narration is unparalleled. When the world is by and large dissatisfied on account of inner spiritual hunger, we find that the mystic writings of Puran Singh serve as a soothing healer to the strife-torn humanity."
Please join us in celebrating the life and contributions of Prof. Puran Singh. The event is open to anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of the eminence of Puran Singh as a poet, thinker, and scientist. Parents are also encouraged to invite their children (13+), currently in a stage of connecting with and building the foundational knowledge of their Sikh heritage.
