Legends and Adventures of Guru Nanak, the First Sikh

From the best-selling author of Classic Tales from Mystic India comes an original novel about the life and travels of Guru Nanak -- musician, enlightened thinker and one of the most beloved figures in Eastern spirituality.

This captivating depiction -- part fiction, part history -- weaves together facts, legends, folktales, myths and over 40 of Guru Nanak's poems from the Sikh holy book, the Granth Sahib.

Told through the eyes of his companion Mardana, The Singing Guru chronicles the struggle to attain balance between a material and spiritual mindset, helped along the way by the companionship, wisdom and songs of Nanak. Containing a variety of tales that illustrate Mardana's struggles with temptation, attachment, greed and pride, this book has stories for people of all backgrounds.
