Fateh to all!

I was wondering if anyone owns or has read the above volumes of SGGS Ji? Are the English translations accurate and comprehensive? Anything else I should know about?

Thanks.

Finally someone replied!

Oh that's great KGM. I'll definitely be buying these volumes. Thanks again Singh!

I wish someone would do the seva of an English translation of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib. That would be a dream come true.

Singh, there's a Gurbani Destkop Program which allows you to read Guru Granth Sahib Jee, Dasam Granth Sahib Jee from the first page til the last I think it's in Gurmukhi though. Also try Sikhi to the max.

@ JagjeetST - Thanks brother. I think reading SGGS Ji in Gurmukhi is fine for me. I'm not too confident in understanding the proper meanings of tuks and so some of them are very difficult for me to really grasp. The 5 Nitnem bania are fairly straightforward but its when you go into the bania such as Asa Di Waar, Sukhmani Sahib and everything else that I begin to struggle. Same goes for DGS Ji, if not more considering the complexities of that particular granth.

Although I appreciate its very difficult to get a 1:1 translation of either Granth into English because of the nuances of both languages, I would still like to at least have an English reference to fill in those gaps where I'm thinking "What did I just read in Gurmukhi?". :biggrin2:
