Summary of Question:Is Sikhism A Universal Religion?
Category:General Sikhism
Date Posted:Wednesday, 12/20/2000 12:33 PM MST

If Sikhism is truly to be regarded as a Universal Religion it must reach out to all. This should be done by having translations of the Guru Granth Sahib available in all the lanuages of the world, French, German, Urdu, English, etc etc ...all languages. If it is not even available in other languages then those of other countries/ nationalities will not be able to understand it. How can Sikhism be called a Universal religion when it doesn't reach out to all in this way.


I believe the Koran is translated into many different languages. Has or is the Guru Granth Sahib being translated into all other languages or don't people care. Can anyone comment on this and tell me what the current state of play is.

Greetings to you in the Name of God the light of every soul and in the NAme of Guru the Life of every Sikh.

Translation of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib is very important. I really do agree with you on how important this is.

I do know that UNESCO printed a translation of exerpts from SGGS called "The Sacred Writings of The Sikhs". I do now know how many languages this has been translated into.

The translation into Spanish is almost complete. Translation into French, Italien, German, Japanese is on its way. What can you find out about this? I will let you know when I find out more about the where and when.
God bless you
