To the authors of this book, Sri Harminder Sahib is both the lamp and light, what is not nly `created` but also endowed with the power `to create`. In this humble attempt at unveiling the sublimity of an otherwise simple, puritan brick-structure, this work seeks to discover in Sri Harminder Sahib, the cosmic as well as the spiritual vision of its founder.This study does not merit Sri Harimandar Sahib over or above others, but essays at discovering what is special about its uniqueness, and how it embodies in an architecturalform the body of a dogma, a massive faith, alive tradition and finally the glory of the supreme.
