Internet Not A Valid Source For Gurbani?

Recommended Posts

Sangat Jee,

I have been looking through some apps on my android tablet and phone etc which you can search Gurbani which claims to have indexed sources such as Amrit Keertan pothi on it etc. However I have come across a particular shabad which has put some doubts on the internets authenticity.

I'm going to use 1 particular shabad as an example and also understand it could just be an exceptional anomaly.

The shabad is : Har Sachae Takth Rachhaeaa Sath Sangat Melaa

I have an Amrit Keertan pothi from around 40 years ago and this pothi itself has been used by Puraatan Gursikhs. Now line 3 and 6 in the Pothi are as follows :

3 : Gur Simar Manaee Kalkaa Khandae Kee Velaa

6 : Gur Sangat Kenee Khalsaa Manumukhee Duhelaa

however on other internet sources and the Amrit Keertan android app also searchgurbani.com it is different and possibly incorrect (I say this because this shabad is from Bhai Gurdas Jee's vaaran and could potentially have 2 different versions)

3: Gur Daas Manaee Kalkaa Khandae Kee Velaa

6 : Sangat Kenee Khalsaa Manumukhee Duhelaa

Is there any learned Gursikh here who can clear my doubt and whether I should scrap using these apps etc and just stick to the Gutka Sahib?

I use it for Keertan purposes and don't want to be reading the wrong shabad.

Just searched Sikhi to the Max II for this shabad and these are correct and from my own understanding they are too. :)

3 : Gur Simar Manaee Kalkaa Khandae Kee Velaa

6 : Gur Sangat Kenee Khalsaa Manumukhee Duhelaa

To start out, the Amrit Kirtan is correct about those 2 lines (According to my knowledge). But that is not always the case. The Amrit Kirtan is often wrong on some Gurbani Tuks. Especially when it comes to Bhai Gurdas Singh's Vaar and Dasam Bani. Some examples are (these are all of examples that I remember. I don't actually have an Amrit Kirtan with me right now, so some may be off):

1. Amrit Kirtan: Gurmukha Mathey Ujaley Sachey Darbarey ||

Actual: Gursikha Mathey Ujaley Sache Darbarey ||

(Bhai Gurdas Singh's Vaar, Pauri 2)

2. Some Pauris in Bhai Gurdas Singh's Vaar end in "Wah Wah Gobind Singh Apey Gur Chela" and some end in "Waho Waho Gobind Singh Apey Gur Chela". Sometimes the Amrit Kirtan is incorrect about that.

(Bhai Gurdas Singh's Vaar)

3. Amrit Kirtan: Peeyoh Pahul Khandeydhaar Hoye Janam Suhela ||

Actual: Peevoh Pahul Kandhdhaar Hoye Janam Suhela ||

(Bhai Gurdas Singh's Vaar, Pauri 1)


4. Amrit Kirtan: Khalsa Akaal Purakh Ki Fouj || Pragateyo Khalsa Pramatam Ki Mouj ||

Actual: Khalsa Kaal Purakh Ki Fouj || Pragateyo Pramatam Ko Mouj ||

(Sarbloh Granth)

^There are 3 changes in this line (Akal->Kaal, Khalsa (2nd line), Ki->Ko). Along with this, there are many changes in the entire Shabad. But I do not currently remember all of these. If you really want, I can give these to you. One more that I remember is:

5. Amrit Kirtan: Khalsa Mero Mukh Hai Anga || Khalsey Kai Haun Sad Sad Sanga ||

Actual: Khalsa Mero Mukh Hai Ang || Khalsey Kai Haun Basat Sad Sang ||

Those are just a few examples.

    • I live just outside London I have not yet been to Canada- plan to visit within a few months I only have friends of friends or relatives of relatives in Canada. One of these is in Surrey and is a 'Realtor' I will have no problems with points system due to nature of my job which will mean it's easy for me to go to any province
    • First question is where do you live at the moment? Second question is have you been to Canada? Third question, do you have any relatives/friends in Canada? Fourth question, are you looking to go there on points system?
    • Dear Sangat I am thinking of moving to Canada - specifically around Vancouver area. There are job opportunities for me I would like to be near the city, but not living in it. Up to 25 miles I am aware that there is large Sikh community which will be helpful. What are good areas to live, but which are not ghettoised ? I am only aware of Surrey which seems to be a nice area. Mission apparently not a great place Anyone made the move? What about getting housing, food etc
    • Hating Sikhs is like the litmus test for how <banned word filter activated> retarded one is. 
    • best fat loss method is to do intermittenet fasting e.g. having an 8 hour eating window in the day and 16 asting hours or even 6 hours eating window and 18 hours fasting, in addition to HIIT exercise. This also means you should have recommended calorie intake too but you can lower it by a few hundred if you wish. Also calories burnt are also not necessarily fat, normally glucose is burnt off from your glycogen stores so having thay that intermittent fast depletes those stores and then exercise can really have an effect on your body so more fat can be burnt. Also have only 3 meals a day with no snacks so insulin doesn't increase as much - insulin promotes fat but exercise promotes growth hormone for muscle. They don't like each other that much so having on 3 meals means you will build muscle quicker too and in turn burn more fat in the long run.
