Issues of Understanding Sikhism, The Research Journal, since 1999 are available in electronic form: http://www.iuscanada.com/journal/archives/journalarchives.html
With the efforts of Prof. Davinder Singh Chahal, PhD, the Institute for Understanding Sikhism (IUS) came into existence in 1999 and it held its 1st conference in 2001. The aim of IUS is to spread the message of Gurbani in its real perspective as intended by Guru Nanak the founder of Sikhism. There are many translations of Aad Guru Granth Sahib (AGGS) available today. However, none can be called perfect as it is a difficult job to convey the message of Gurbani in its real perspective, especially when translated into foreign languages and even in Punjabi. On Sept 21, 2013 IUS held its 12th conference at Civic Center, Ville des Dollards-des-Ormeaux (near Montreal), Quebec, Canada to highlight the methods that must be kept in mind when interpreting AGGS. Scholars from Canada, USA and UK presented their papers in the conference. This conference was dedicated to Max Arthur Macauliffe on his Centennial Anniversary, which was on March 15, 2013.
