Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji blessed the world with treasure of Gurbani in the form Sri Adi Granth which was installed as official Guru of Sikhs by Guru Gobind Singh Ji by naming it Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the First Book. You might have read many books in your life, but all reading is useless if you have not read Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is form of timeless God. These are words of God. Whosoever reads and respects Guru Granth Sahib, Guru Ji will create love for the God in that devotee’s heart.
Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is not only holy book of Sikhs but of the entire mankind. There is nothing in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji which nobody can follow. It’s message is universal. Sri Guru Granth is talking about God….the God of everyone…..not just God of Sikhs. Guru Sahib has blessed people from all religions and faiths and even people who did not have belief in God. Here is link to testimonial of a Hindu gentleman who got rid of cancer with Sri Akhand Path of Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Followers of any religion can compliment study of their own religion by studying Guru Granth Ji. Guru Granth ji provides the conceptual framework of religion. It’s grammer of religion.
Guru Granth is not simply a composition of different saints. Actually, different saints had vision of the God and the divine knowledge appeared in their spiritual hearts. That spiritual knowledge got approved by God. When Guru Arjan started compiling Sri Guru Granth Ji, Guru Arjan got that divine knowledge from God directly. Guru Arjan did not just copied the text from scriptures of those saints. This is the secret shared by Saints
Guru Granth Sahib Ji`s script is Gurmukhi. It has 35 alphabets. These 35 alphabets are original divine alphabets. Saint Kabir uttered the same divine alphabets as Guru Nanak did. These alphabets are not just alphabets of any other language. There is divine knowledge in these 35 alphabets.
Sri Guru blesses a devotee as per devotee’s wishes. If a devotee regards Sri Guru Granth as a book, he will get bookish knowledge of the Guru. If a devotee thinks that Guru Granth is God, Guru ji will bless that devotee with vision of God.
Sri Guru Ji is called living Guru of Sikhs. But how is He living? He is living because He is the power who has created and nurturing this world. This is the power who is holding the earth hanging in the universe. Words of Guru Granth Sahib Ji talk to the devotee and take over his conscious and bless him with vision of God. After fall of Sikh kingdom in 1849, Sikhs were in great trouble. They were losing glory of their faith. Then a miracle happened. Read full story by following this link.
There are thousands other examples where Guru saves their Sikhs and devotees with His power. Guru will talk to Sikh with His words. Sikh can hear those words when he plays TV or visits Gurdwara Sahib or a stranger will come to him and give Guru’s message. Such wonderful are ways of Guru Granth Sahib’s communication.
Very critical time is going on now. Many human gurus have started appearing who are misguiding the humanity. They just want to make money from their followers. Innocent people don’t understand their motives and fall trap to their plans. It’s time to understand who is true Guru. Guru Gobind Singh Ji knew that this time will come when people will fight for guruship. That’s why He passed on the Guruship to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji. So instead of wasting your time for these so-called gurus, just focus on Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and live your life successfully.
In a nutshell, the glory of Guru Granth Sahib Ji cannot be described. Just live with His Love and Divine Knowledge within your heart and keep praising Him.
We would like to congratulate everybody on blessed parkash purab of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
