Sikhs follow the Guru..Sri Guru Granth sahib Ji...therefore we cannot leave our guru and follow something else...but I guess reading Bible for general purpose would not be wrong.

It is not about having so many spiritual sources, but living up to what the Teacher says.

The bible is a text comprised of stories, parables and historical accounts. It speaks to the head. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the embodiment of the Shabd Guru. That is, the sounds it contains literally transform your cells and your consciousness. It speaks to the soul.

I believe in studying all sacred texts from the Tao Te Ching, the puranas and smritis of the vedas to the Koran, the Torah and the Christian Bibles. Much understanding can be gained from this. The Guru Granth Sahib is quite different from all the others as it is not a 'holy book' per se, but our living Guru.

It's not the holy book, but the living guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji. Show some respect.
