(As explained by Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji)
SIRI: (See + Ree) The entire light of the sun’s creativity. Lakshmi. Whatever has been created, whatever is possibly created, shall be created, can be created, is called “Siri.”
GURU: (Gu=darkness + Ru= light) From darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge. Guru is one who gives you the technology to remove your ignorance.
GRANTH: (gra=knot + un=ultimate + naat’h=
owner, Master, God) That which creates the ultimate knot with God. Anything which creates the ultimate knot with God is called a granth.
SAHIB: (sa=light, Infinity + hib=the now) Thus, the light of the now, the totality of the here and now..
In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. Anything which creates an ultimate knot with God is called Granth. Therefore, book can be a book and every book can be holy or unholy; that has nothing to do with it. Granth is not a book and it cannot be a book. Book cannot be a Granth; Granth cannot be a book. Relationship should be understood. Man cannot be a woman; woman cannot be a man. But they are both human.
