Gurmukhi is the script invented by Guru Angad Dev Ji.

The purpose for creating this script was to make the Adi Granth accessable to the general public. The tradition system at the time was that a person had to study extensively to understand religious texts. Gurmukhi can be learned easily and the language was the common tounge of the area, so the Guru's teachings could reach all who wanted them.
