Adi Granth

The Adi Granth, also known as Guru Granth, is a collection of hymns that represent the core of Sikhism's teachings, and is unique as a sacred scripture in that its contributors include not only several of Sikhism's ten Gurus but also a great number of Hindu and Muslim spiritualists embodying the entire spectrum of the Indian socioeconomic system.

The version currently accepted as definitive has 1430 pages and is said to be the 1604 compilation by Guru Arjan, later extended by Guru Gobind.
