Define the role of a GRANTHI in Sikhism and Sikh History.


Recommended Posts

Granthi

Literally, 'the keeper and the reader of the Sikh scripture.1 In every Sikh Gurdwara there is a granthi nominated or accepted as such by the local Sikh congrega-tion. His duty is to keep and manage the Gurdwara and to run its religious services, but he is not an ordained priest vested with the exclusive competence of performing or controlling Sikh worship in a Gurdwara. There is no priesthood recognised in Sikhism and the granthi is thus merely a functionary of the Sikh congregation enjoying no special rights or status.
