Reviews and Comments:
I first read this book in 1983 and it struck a chord with my spirit. This was a story of pure love and relationship between the bhagat and the Guru through good and tough times. It did inspire me not because it was about Bhai Randhir Singh, the personality, in particular but because it cemented within me the resolve and the belief that it was possible for me as a common person to pursue the Guru's path through Naam Simran, Gurbani and devotion to the Khalsa rehet.

"Reading about the tortures that Bhai Sahib Ji received gave me the strength to standup to the taunts I used to receive about my turban in school. I gave up all ideas of cutting my hair" - Nihaal Singh
