Granth

 

(in Russian, Adigrantkh; in Sanskrit, literally “primordial book”), holy book of the Sikhs. Also known as Gurugranth (Book-teacher) and Granthsahib (Book-master). Compilation of the book was completed in 1604 under the guru Arjan. At that time the Granth included the hymns of the first five Sikh gurus—Nanak and others. The preaching of other gurus and some of the hymns of Kabir, Namdev, Farid al-Din Ganjishakar, Jaidev, and other ideologues of the bhakti movement and Sufism were added later. The Granth includes works written in living Indian languages, such as Punjabi, Hindi, and Marathi.
