Guru Granth Sahib
The 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.
