  1. I don't wish to open a can of worms here, but few weeks back someone had posted a thread abt british loot of sikh artifacts and there was one folio of Maharani Jinda's sukhmani sahib pothi on that thread That baani was not "pad cheed" , means all words are connected unlike in modern pothis and thats not an issue . However as I was casually reading through the baani (it was Sukhmani sahib), I noticed it had differences with modern version of Sukhmani sahib . I attached my comparison below Did you guys noticed the difference already . In the first salok, it has "aad gurdev nameh" vs "aad gurae nameh" in modern forms. And in other word highlighted "garrb" , it has "baba" in old versions compared to "bhabha" in modern ones. I have always believed gurbani to be without any change. I wonder how many such errors exist . Or is there errors in Maharani Jinda's pothi . Do we have a concrete historical bir of Sri Guru Granth sahib to check against ?

    Stages of studying gurbani?

    Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh Sangat ji, I have a few questions that I have come across and hope some guru da piaara can shine a light on I have been studying gurbani in Guru Granth Sahub Ji via a sehej path I have kept. I have been reading 1-4 shabads a day and fully understanding the shabad before moving on. I am currently on ang 33 and plan to spend a few years to complete the sehaj path. My questions are: when should I start studying other banis like Dasam Granth bani, Bhai Gurdas jis vaaran, and Bhai Nanad Lal jis bani? Is there a certain point of understanding I should be at from Guru Granth Sahib Ji before starting to read other banis or should I complete my sehaj path before moving on? If there is a certain point of understanding, how do I know I am ready? I remember reading somewhere a while ago that Dasam Granth bani contains bir raas and Guru Granth sahib ji has shaant raas and that a person cannot handle the bir raas in Dasam Granth if they are not ready. What is the order I should study other banis in, like should I first study Bhai Gurdas Jis vaaran before moving onto Dasam Granth bani and so forth. Guru Granth Sahib ji obviously being first. Thank you in advance Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh
  4. Been after this for years and finally found it on sikhbookclub.com. This is an excellent resource to help increase our understanding of the vocabulary employed within Gurbani. https://www.scribd.com/document/416362237/A-Guru-Nanak-Glossary-By-Christopher-Shackle-2nd-Edition-reissued-in-2011

    Painting/ Drawing Gurbani

    WJKK WKJF I am interested in drawing / illutrating Gurbani but im a bit worried about what to do with it after. For example if i create some art with Gurbani on it how can I dispose of it, i dont want to throw it in the rubbish.
  6. In SGGS or Gurbani, where it is written that “ Sikh should not bow and touch any human being’s feet particularly of a Saint”?
  7. I asked same question to some gursikh and he said "Gurbaani was heard by our gurus and bhagats in a deep meditative state, and then they wrote it down" Is it true ?
  8. Kirtan Nirmolak Hira By the grace of almighty, Our Kirtani Jatha is blessed for recital of Gurbani kirtan. These blessings have been proved during our recitals in various samagams, kirtan darbars & Gurudwaras. With the blessing of God, our recitals have been greatly appreciated by audience (Sangat). We are very thankful to God for giving us this precious gift. Saadh Sangat ji asees dena ji. Sada Ragi jatha esi tarah kirtan di sewa karda rahe ji . https://www.amritbani.info
  9. Every scripture has claimed itself to be from god , a divine revelation, revealed either through sages in deep meditation (as vedas claim to be) , or revealed through archangels (as in case of quran and other abrahamic scriptures) . Gurbani too claims to be divine word of god (dhur ki baani) revealed through the perfect gurus who were one with god. So ,it becomes evident the author of all these scriptures is ONE . And that entity goes by the name variously as Parbrahm/Allah/Yahweh/God/Waheguru Then why does one find harshness in SOME (not all or many) verses of quran, duality in vedas and "sacrifice your ego" in gurbani . Are the differences merely superficial. ? Can one then argue, the jihadists and most muslims worldwide never really knew a true, deeper mystical interpretation of quran. Or for that matter the casteists and orthodox within hinduism never recognized the one present in many form in the vedas. Or for that matter, Sikhs never really truly understood what gurbani was saying ?
  10. Someone told me Guru sahibs used to meditate very deeply and they would hear gurbani verses in deep meditative state. But we also know Guru Arjan dev ji recited much of baani to Bhai Gurdas ji . So if it was coming as a continuous , uninterrupted stream from Waheguru, how would Bhai Gurdas ji have written so fast . Also Bhai ji would have required to ask Guru sahibs of lagha maatras in gurmukhi when scribing gurbani. Is there any document on how it all happened ?

  13. In Gurbani, a woman who becomes the “sohagan” has been referred to as “batees sulakhani” means she has thirty-two qualities, which according to Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha are:- beauty, cleanliness, modesty, humility, concord, observance of religion, intelligence, knowledge, service, compassion, truth, dedicated love of spouse, purity of mind, patience, frugality, beneficence, sobriety, chivalry, active habits, house decoration, respect of elders, proficiency in music, poetry, painting, domestic science and embroidery, respectful attention to guests, and bringing up children. Gurbani enunciates that there is not any difference between the Man and woman. All men and women can be “Sohagan if they have the qualities necessary to please the Lord.

    Fourteen world shops

    ਪਉੜੀ ॥ Pauree: ਤੁਧੁ ਆਪੇ ਧਰਤੀ ਸਾਜੀਐ ਚੰਦੁ ਸੂਰਜੁ ਦੁਇ ਦੀਵੇ ॥ You Yourself created the earth, and the two lamps of the sun and the moon. ਦਸ ਚਾਰਿ ਹਟ ਤੁਧੁ ਸਾਜਿਆ ਵਾਪਾਰੁ ਕਰੀਵੇ ॥ You created the fourteen world-shops, in which Your Business is transacted. ਇਕਨਾ ਨੋ ਹਰਿ ਲਾਭੁ ਦੇਇ ਜੋ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਥੀਵੇ ॥ The Lord bestows His Profits on those who become Gurmukh. ਤਿਨ ਜਮਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਵਿਆਪਈ ਜਿਨ ਸਚੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਪੀਵੇ ॥ The Messenger of Death does not touch those who drink in the True Ambrosial Nectar. ਓਇ ਆਪਿ ਛੁਟੇ ਪਰਵਾਰ ਸਿਉ ਤਿਨ ਪਿਛੈ ਸਭੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਛੁਟੀਵੇ ॥੩॥ They themselves are saved, along with their family, and all those who follow them are saved as well. ||3|| what are the fourteen world shops here and what does it mean.
  21. ਚਾਰੇ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਉਨਿ ਅਘ ਕੀਏ ਹੋਆ ਅਸੁਰ ਸੰਘਾਰੁ ॥ Chaarae Kilavikh Oun Agh Keeeae Hoaa Asur Sanghaar || If you have committed the four great sins and other mistakes; even if you are a murderous fiend does anyone know what is meant by the 4 great sins. it makes me think of the bujjar kurehit...is it something similar? the line is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji on Ang 70 if you want to go look at the full shabad.
  22. I recently welcomed The Guru Granth Sahib in to my home and began reading this translation (chahail). There are the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and some like 4.4, 5.2 found before sentences. I never read The Guru myself so I am quite unaware as to what these numbers mean. Are they to denote the chords on an instrument or pitches of the voice? Can anyone help? Thank you!
  23. This is not about personal opinions but obtaining different Shabads from Gurbani to see what the Guru says about Islam?
  24. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹ Does anyone know of any Gurbani which describes the shape of the world? I know of the pankti in Sri Sukhmani Sahib which states the world has 4 corners "nimukh mahi chaar kunt fir aave"
  25. there's lots of strife in my family nowadays. Even despite just me , mom and dad. I think we're seeing almost daily quarrels over some or the other issue
