Vahiguru ji ka Khalsa, Vahiguru ji ki Fatih!

At the heart of Sikhi lies the revered Guru Granth Sahib, an eternal source of guidance and wisdom that encompasses every facet of a Sikh's existence. This sacred scripture is held in the highest esteem, and its words are cherished and contemplated with utmost reverence. The Guru Granth Sahib embodies perfection and the divine sovereignty that guides Sikhs in their journey.

Guru Granth Sahib is an amalgamation of wisdom, grace, and freedom, transcending religious boundaries to offer solace and insight to all truth seekers. Comprising utterances from six Gurus, three Sikhs, fifteen saints representing diverse traditions, and eleven bards from the Gurus' courts, the Guru Granth Sahib is a testament to unity in diversity. It's written in Gurmukhi, a script introduced by Guru Nanak Sahib and institutionalized by Guru Angad Sahib, reflecting the importance of languages in conveying profound thoughts.

Guru Arjan Sahib was instrumental in compiling the teachings of the previous Gurus, Sikhs, and saints into the Adi Granth, which was then enshrined in Sri Harimandar Sahib in 1604. Later, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib added Guru Teghbahadar Sahib's teachings and raised the scripture's status to that of a perpetual Guru, known as the Guru Granth Sahib, in 1708.

The Guru Granth Sahib's significance extends beyond Sikhi; it embodies the essence of the One Eternal, which remains invulnerable and preserved for the world to cherish. The message flowing from the Guru Granth Sahib resonates universally, finding expression in the hearts of seekers across cultures. The translation of its profound wisdom is akin to life translating itself.

The Guru Granth Sahib continues to guide Sikhs and seekers alike toward a life rooted in wisdom, love, and the eternal teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib.

May the Wisdom-Guru be with us!
