SIKHS IN OTHERS EYES
Ms. Pearl S. Buck, Nobel Prize Winner in Literature was presented the four volumes of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in English when visiting Delhi in 1960s. She settled in her home in Pennsylvania. After reading Guru Granth Sahib she expressed her amazement that such a modern religion existed in the world and the world did not know of it.
A Chilean philosopher, Dr. Bittencourt (Double Ph.D.) was so impressed with Sikhism after reading "GLIMPSES OF DIVINE MASTERS" by Late S. Ranbir Singh that he volunteered to write an excellent 13 page preface about Sikhism for S. Ranbir Singh's second book "THE SIKH WAY OF LIFE." This is an excellent reading on Sikhs in comparative study of religions. (ASK US FOR A FREE COPY OF THE PREFACE)
As late as Feb. 2000, cknet reported , "What does the AT&T CTO read?" Mr.David C. Nagel, the president of AT&T Labs and AT&T's Chief Technology Officer has a book on his desk that has a lot to do with Sikhs. What is that book? On Mr.Nagel's desk, one book stands out: THE ARTS OF THE SIKH KINGDOMS, by Susan Stronge. Mr. Nagle is impressed that in the great melting pot - Punjab, the Sikhs gave and they borrowed.
Can you imagine how many "Movers & Shakers" must have been exposed to that one book on Mr. Nagels table?

You will get a copy of the invoice with full accounting, a list of recepients and a letter of thanks from a tax exempt institution so that you can get tax write off depending on your tax bracket, say about $200.00 That way your out of pocket outlay of $300 goes a long way and books worth over $600.00 can be used in this program.
