Sri Guru Granth Sahib
Guru Granth Sahib is truely unique among
the world's great scriptures. It is considered the Supreme Spiritual
Authority and Head of the Sikh religion, rather than any living person.
It is also the only scripture of it's kind which not only contains the
works of it's own religious founders but also writings of people from
other faiths. The living Guru of the Sikhs, the book is held in great
reverence by Sikhs and treated with the utmost respect. Sikhism rejects
idol worship, so the Guru Granth Sahib is not worshipped as an idol,
but rather emphasis is placed on respect of the book for the writings
which appear within. Guru Granth Sahib is a collection of devotional
hymns and poetry which proclaims God, lays stress on meditation on the
True Guru (God), and lays down moral and ethical rules for development
of the soul, spiritual salvation and unity with God.
