Message from the Archbishop of Canterbury Date: Monday, 27 October, 2008
As the Sikhs worldwide celebrate 300 years of the investiture of the Guru Granth Sahib the words of Max Arthur McAuliffe written in 1909 are a worthy introduction to the message of good will issued recently by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Max Arthur McAuliffe (1909):
“It would be difficult to point out to a religion of greater originality or to a more comprehensive ethical system. The Sikh religion, the Sikh scriptures contain sublime truths, the study of which cannot but elevate the reader spiritually morally, and socially. There is not the tinge of sectarianism in them. They teach the highest and purest principles that serve to bind man to man and inspire the believer with an ambition to serve his fellowmen.”
