This course examines the nature, role and meanings of Sikh thought,
religion and culture by looking at what mysticism is, and what it
contributes to modern Sikh consciousness and culture. Expressions of
Sikh mysticism as found in the writings of the Sikh Gurus will be
presented in comparative context. One of the aims of this course is to
show how Sikh mysticism draws attention to the way in which we
construct ourselves and notions of reality.
