First Parkash Purv of Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji
Guru Arjan Dev Ji, revered as fifth Nanak, installed Adi Granth at Harmandir Sahib Ji in 1604. Baba Buddha Ji was the First Granthi and Bhai Gurdas Ji completed Adi Granth Sahib Ji as dictated by Shri Guru Arjan Dev Ji in 1604. Later Guru Gobind Singh Ji adds Shabads of Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Ji and then in 1708, Adi Granth became Guru Granth Sahib Ji, the Eternal Guru of Sikhs as was declared by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. The Guru Granth Sahib is indeed unique in its thought, literary expression and the message it continues to communicate centuries after it was written. Exalted thought needs to be transported on the vehicle of language to reach the masses. Poetic expression lifts prose to a higher plane.When verse and music meld, their beauty and sweetness makes mind transcend the humdrum of rational existence. This is divine love, passion pure expressed poetically; set to select 31 raga. The thought is egalitarian, expressed in a language that can be lucidly understood by the masses and the compositions are poetic, composed in the traditional Indian meters.
