Human Understanding and Animal Behavior - Sikh Research Institute

Human Understanding and Animal Behavior

Nature is a diverse source of life forms; their unique identity and nature. Gurbani extensively uses symbolism derived from Nature to convey a particular thought or feeling. This presentation looks at major animal symbols evoked in Gurbani and how they are utilized to impart lessons in outlook and attitudes for life.
