PREM SUMARAG
The Te
stimony
o
a Sanatan
Sikh
The
Prem Sumiirag
presents
an
ideal
of
the
duty
of the Sikh
Panth
during
the
eigh
t
eenth/
nineteenth
centuries. The
importance
of
t is
classic text lies
in
the fact
that
it is
of
Sana tan origin,
part
of
a tradition
which has been over
time
overshadowed
by
the
dominant Tat
Khalsa version
of
the
Rahi
McLeod s
translation of
Randhir
Singh s t
ext
of
the
r
em Sumiirag
is
thus
a
major contribution
to Sikh studies.
Notwithstanding
debates
about
its
date,
thi
s Sana tan text
presents
a radical alternative to the
Tat
Khalsa
interpretation
of Sikh history.
The
Pr
em
Sumarag
pro
vides
an
extended
account
of
the Sikh
way
of lif
e
It
outlines Sikh ceremonies
and
ideals,
and
wh
at was
conceived to
be
noble practice 
by
its
anonymous
au
thors.
The
leisurely
and
detailed
sty
le
of
this
document
differs
dramatically
from
the usually pithy style
of
the
other rahit-namas
,
and, this Sana
tan text is,
n
its description,
perhaps
a closer reflection of the society
of
the
time.
