By Sukhmandir Khalsa:

The flower of Gurbani exudes sweetness beyond compare. Rooted in the physical world, its essence has the ability to uplift one to the heights of spiritual awareness. In my quest to offer practical knowledge about the methods of the Sikh way of worship, I humbly point you to the ultimate guide, Siri Guru Granth Sahib.
