The Guru Granth Sahib is a Sikh sacred text.

It is considered by Sikhs to be their eleventh and living Guru and treated with

 

the respect that this implies.

A guru is a person who has great knowledge and wisdom, and who is able to show others light (knowledge) by destroying darkness (ignorance).

Guru Gobind Singh (the last of the Sikh gurus to take human form) made the Granth a guru on 20th October 1708. Guru Gobind Singh then instructed the Sikhs to treat the Granth as their next and final Guru and look upon it as their guide and as a symbolic representation of all the gurus.

The Granth contains both the teachings of the Gurus and the teachings of the Hindu and Muslim holy people whose teachings agreed with their own. These teachings, devotional hymns and poems set out the spiritual conditions that Sikhs must follow.
