Featuring: Surender Pal Singh Guru Granth Sahib is a treasure house of a variety of figurative expressions like imagery, symbolism, metaphors, similes, and so on. The contributors to Guru Granth Sahib have intertwined a diverse range of such expressions with their poetic revelations. These expressions bring alive the mystic and spiritual experiences that are otherwise inexpressible through language and make them more relatable for a commoner. Most of these expressions draw parallels from South-Asian day-to-day life and its surrounding environment including nature, creatures, professions, faith and religion, socio-cultural mores, politics, and more. #Sikhi #Sikh #GuruGranthSahib #Symbolism #SikhRI
