The voluminous book was finally completed in 1604 and was installed at the Golden Temple. It also contains the teachings of prominent Indian saints, such as Ravidas, Ramananda, Bhagat Bhikhan, Kabir and Namdev among others, and Muslim Sufi saint Sheikh Farid.

 

The text is regarded by the Sikhs as a living embodiment of their ten spiritual leaders and is pivotal in worship in Sikhism. It is an auspicious day for the Sikh community and is celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm and fervour.

 

Every year, the Sikhs celebrate the anniversary with great fanfare and fervour with its best part being the fireworks.
