Significance of Saroop in Sikhism



Saroop, often referred to as "Bir" in Punjabi, is the physical embodiment of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the central religious scripture of Sikhism. This sacred text is not merely a book but is considered the living Guru by Sikhs worldwide.
Each Saroop contains exactly 1,430 pages, known as Angs, a term that signifies 'limbs' to convey the integral parts of the body, reflecting the deep reverence Sikhs have for their holy scripture. The content on every Ang is meticulously preserved to ensure consistency across all Saroops, underlining the importance of maintaining the purity and authenticity of the divine words contained within.

Key Points:

Saroop/Bir: A physical copy of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, treated with the utmost respect and considered the living Guru in Sikhism.
Ang: Each page within the Saroop is referred to as an Ang, emphasizing the scripture's sanctity and integral presence within the Sikh faith.
1430 Pages: Every Saroop contains exactly 1,430 Angs, ensuring uniformity in the divine message conveyed to the followers.
Consistency: The verses on each Ang remain identical in every Saroop, highlighting the efforts made to preserve the scripture's authenticity and purity.
The Saroop is more than a religious text; it is the eternal Guru of the Sikhs, guiding followers on a path of righteousness, spiritual enlightenment, and moral integrity. The consistent preservation of each Ang across every Saroop signifies the collective commitment of the Sikh community to uphold the teachings and values as imparted by their Gurus.
