Granthi (literal meaning: "the keeper and the reader of the Sikh scripture") is any person of either gender, who performs the reading of the Guru Granth Sahib at congregational occasions, however this task can be performed by any individual who is part of the congregation (Sangat). The official Granthi's task is to perform the morning rites (prakash, or opening of the Guru Granth Sahib), reading the paath and sukhasan (closing the Guru Granth Sahib in the evening). The Granthi is not equivalent to "Priest", as there is no priestly class in Sikhism.
