You can use Public Link from the file and share the URL in the community.

Hi Raj,

There are two methods to show a PDF in Lightning Component.

First, you can create a Visualforce page and embed it in the Lightning component. See a detailed example,

Second is the usage of PDF.JS library to directly use the lightning component to display the PDF. See the details
