The Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the sacred scripture of the Sikh people. And in Quesnel, as well as the rest of the East Indian community, the Sikhs join in the worldwide celebration. They are celebrating the most auspicious event at the Cariboo Gur Sikh Temple with deep feelings of love and devotion, beginning on Friday, Sept. 10... 'It's a wonderful compilation of true multi-lingualism, multi-culturalism and multi-ethnic makeup of human society,' said Cariboo Gur Sikh Temple head priest Dr. M. Paul Singh. 'Guru Granth Sahib speaks truly to and for all mankind, the whole universe and the entire creation. It is indeed the Guru, the enlightened prophet, who leads human souls to their creator, the wonderful Lord and loving and blissful union.'"
