Guru Granth Sahib Ji hymns were written by Sikh gurus: Guru Nanak, Guru Angad, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ramdas, Guru Arjan, and Guru Tegh Bahadur. It also contains teachings from thirteen Hindu saint poets and two Muslim saint poets.
Sikhism has always encouraged oneness and no discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, gender, which can be seen in the compilation of spiritual teachings by saints from different backgrounds in guru granth sahib. Guru Granth Sahib is written in Gurmukhi, which was first discovered by guru nanak dev and later it was standardized by Guru Angad dev in the 16th century.
Phela prakash purab of Guru granth sahib Ji happened in September 1604 by Baba Buda in gurdwara Harminder Sahib situated in Punjab, Amritsar.
