Evening Recitation over the Sri Guru Granth Sahib

This is our entry in The Daily Post Daily Prompt: Recite.

In October 2014, we were fortunate to visit the Sri Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) in Amritsar, Rajasthan, India, and to observe the evening recitation by the head priest of the Harimandir.  He sits here in front of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib (the most important scripture of Sikhism), which has been set on pillows covered by immaculate silks and brocades.
