On the Trumbull Patch in Connecticut, Dave and Nita Anand write about the sacred scriptures of the Sikhs, the Guru Granth Sahib:

Bertrand Russell, British philosopher and Nobel Peace Prize winner, once observed — “If some lucky men survive the onslaught of the third world war of atomic and hydrogen bombs, then the Sikh religion and Granth Sahib will be the only means of guiding them.” Russell was then asked why he is bringing up the third world war issue — isn’t this religion capable of guiding mankind towards peace before the third world war? In reply, Russell said, “Yes, it has the capability, but the Sikhs have not brought out in the broad daylight, the splendid doctrines of this religion which has come into existence for the benefit of the entire mankind.”

The writings in the Guru Granth Sahib are in essence very personal testimonies of the connection between the soul and the Divine, and from these testaments arises its universality.
