Saroop (724K)

PCA (1K) Panjab Cultural Association and SAINTS are proud to announce our preservation project of an endangered Guru Granth Sahib. This valuable Sikh treasure was discovered by a leading academic who works with Panjab Cultural Associations and then the expert teams at SAINTS took the great task of arranging to preserve this valuable treasure for posterity.

Unfortunately, the Guru Granth Sahib currently requires extensive conservation work in order to restore it, the binding has broken and there are ripped folios. We urgently need you to donate and volunteer your skills in order to restore the saroop and create and exhibition around it.

- This Guru Granth Sahib is one of the oldest saroops in the world.
- It is all written in hand and continuous (larivar).
- Like many other saroops in the UK it was taken in the Anglo-Sikh wars.
- The ink recipe is at the end of this Holy Guru Granth Sahib.

Other discoveries made from within this saroop will be disclosed in a forthcoming exhibition of this Guru Granth Granth Sahib once it has been restored and digitalised. We urge you to donate generously towards the restoration costs of this Granth {27,000 GBP} and 7,2500 GBP in order to digitise the saroop. Please visit our secure donation page to contribute towards this valuable seva.

The Sri Guru Granth Sahib has been examined and evaluated by Giani Rann Singh head Giani of Sant Samaaj and Tarnadal.
