The Years 1708 has been an important landmark in the history of the Sikh faith and community: it was in this years that Guru Gobind Singh, the Tenth Master, breathed his last at Nanded. He also put an end to the institution of the person-Guru and bestowed for all times to come the office of Guru on (Guru) Granth Sahib or more precisely on the Sabda (Word) as contained therein just before his passing away. Thus, Sikhism has faith only in the ten person Gurus, Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh, and no one else, however pious or enlightened, claim or be acknowledged as such. After the Tenth Master, the Guru Granth Sahib is not just a holy book for the Sikhs : it is the living Guru and an article of faith with them. It is takes as the spirit-incarnate of the ten Gurus.
