Abstract: We prove that any proper holomorphic mapping between two equidimensional irreducible bounded symmetric domains with rank $\geq 2$ is a biholomorphism. The proof of the main result in this paper will be achieved by a differential-geometric study of a special class of complex geodesic curves on the bounded symmetric domains with respect to their Bergman metrics.
