Sikh Scripture, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, is a 1430 page long psalm in laudation of the Transcendent. Its poetry is all in the spiritual key. It lays down no dogma or prescriptions. The message it communicates is couched in the language and symbolism of love and faith. It is purest and most exalted poetry ever written. Being liberal in design and spirit, the Holy Granth is a major repository of spiritual thought in world literature-thought apparently common to al religious traditions, but unique in its announcement of the existence of the Absolute Being, and in its celebration of God-consciousness.

Granth, which is derived from the Sanskrti, implies like Koran and Bible a book-the Book par excellence. Unlike some other scriptures, it is neither history nor mythology, nor a collection of incantations. Its contents are spiritual poetry, the vision of the cosmic order and exhortation to the higher life. In that respect it is a unique scripture among the source books of religion. It remains unique in consisting solely of the meditations of God –inspired men, who have communicated the Divine Word in a spirit of deep humility and compassion for mankind.
