Some scholarly opinions about Guru Granth Sahib:

Power of appeal to the heart and mind- "Sri Guru Granth Sahib is a source book, an expression of mans loneliness, his aspirations, his longings, his cry to God and his hunger for communication with that being. I have studied the scriptures of other great religions, but I do not find the same power of appeal to the heart and mind as I find here in these volumes" -Pearl S.Buck, Nobel laureate

The most highly venerated religious scripture- "Of all known religious scriptures, this book is most highly veneratedThe Adi Granth is the Sikhs perpetual Guru."

"In this coming religious debate, the Sikh religion and its scripture, Adi Granth will have something of special value to say to the rest of the world."

-Arnold Toynbee, reputed historian

    • Universal message of Guru Granth Sahib-

"The border of seas and mountains will give way before the call of eternal truth which is set with freshness of feeling and fervor of devotion in Adi Granth." -Dr.S.Radhakrishnan, former President of India

A height of inspiration - "Few, if any, among the world scriptures attain so high a literary level or so constant a height of inspiration as Granth Sahib." - Duncan Greenlees
