Guru Granth Sahib: Fifth Ved

Submitted by on January 24, 2007 – 3:20 pm

Teaching universal brotherhood

Guru Granth Sahib is the fifth Ved brought to light by Guru Nanak Dev. One must read the story Sach Khand, Janam Sakhi Guru Nanak Dev Jee for a comprehensive understanding of the subject.
Guru Arjan Dev, the fifth Guru incarnate of Guru Nanak Dev, compiled Bani. Initially called pothi, it was kept in Harmandar Sahib. Baba Budha Jee was the first granthi who used to recite Bani. Thus, pothi was called Adhi Granth and, then, Guru Granth Sahib by the tenth Guru Gobind Singh. This should be worshipped by all with reverence at it teaches universal brotherhood.
The SGPC should lay special focus on popularising the life history of Guru Nanak Dev. The life history should be published in all languages and given wide publicity. The present practice of giving a saropa and a piece of cloth to people should be substituted with a copy of Janam Sakhi, wrapped in cloth as a mark of respect.
