A fuller version of the quote from Miss Pearl S. Buck, a Nobel laureate who was given a copy of the Gopal Singh translation of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, this is what she said:


<TABLE style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" class=cquote align=center><TBODY><TR><TD style="TEXT-ALIGN: left; PADDING-BOTTOM: 10px; PADDING-LEFT: 10px; PADDING-RIGHT: 10px; FONT-FAMILY: 'Times New Roman',serif; COLOR: rgb(178,183,242); FONT-SIZE: 35px; FONT-WEIGHT: bold; PADDING-TOP: 10px" vAlign=top width=20>“</TD><TD style="PADDING-BOTTOM: 4px; PADDING-LEFT: 10px; PADDING-RIGHT: 10px; PADDING-TOP: 4px" vAlign=top>I have studied the scriptures of the great religions, but I do not find elsewhere the same power of appeal to the heart and mind as I find here in these volumes. They are compact in spite of their length and are a revelation of the concept of God to the recognition and indeed the insistence upon the practical needs of the human body...This sense of unity is the source of power I find in these volumes. They speak to a person of any religion or of none. They speak for the human heart and the searching mind.

I find this too as a Roman Catholic!
