If you're illiterate or can't speak.

Is it ok to learn the better pronunciation?

Yes, usually in addition to having read it first.

Better to read unless physically and mentally incapacitated due to illness.

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

You could, but reading Nitnem yourself has many benefits.  Listening may "free you up" to do other things, which means you may end up focusing less on the Nitnem itself.  There is always the risk of sleep if you are listening, tired and still.

Reading aloud bestows the additional benefit of assisting in memorizing Nitnem as well.

To learn better pronunciation:  Sure, but the ideal state would be to go back to doing Nitnem youself after this learning is complete.  Perhaps assign a time duration within which you would learn the pronunciation and then go back to doing the Nitnem yourself.

Nothing wrong with listening jeeo; however make sure your surthee is focused on the nitnem and not something else Bhai sahib. If it becomes background noise then maybe you should re-evaluate the reasons why you're doing nitnem 🙏🏽

Brother,

Nitnem, whether one recites it or listens to it, what is important, is to not recite it as a parrot, but in paying attention in understanding the spiritual wealth contained in it, and then fly as an eagle to touch the skies.... As that is the purpose of the Bani, in getting liberation from all our worldly bondages, and get our chit engaged in devotion at His charan kamal.

Other thing is of Naam japna, which each and everyone has to do it individually, as it is our personal link with Him, through which we get closer and closer to Him, to the extent we come so much near to Him, that we become one with Him.

Sat Sree Akal.

It's OK to listen to Nitnem because otherwise if you were doing Nitnem in the Gurdwara and the Giani is reading off Nitnem, the rest of the Sangat is listening to the paath. No one would say the Sangat is failing in its duty to do Nitnem.

Of course, you should pay attention to the paath.

Also, you should read paath so you learn it before you start to just listen to it.

Listening to or doing Nitnem is pointless if you don't actually Apply the gyan that it teaches you. 

 

Start practicing the Truth you learn in Nitnem in your everyday life. Apply it and LIVE it, don't just read it l.

i have a question.

before printing press and technology, as well as widespread literacy, became available in Panjab, how do you think Sikhs did nitnem?

I'm guess the some memorised it, and the others sat and listened in 'asan' with their eyes closed.

also don't forgot alot of nitnem has raags prescribed to it.  those Shabads would have been sung, rather than read?

    • Iran Do you guys think USA plans to invade Iran?  First there was the drone strike and Iran stopping oil carriers in the Strait of hormuz where 20% of the world's oil passes through - https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=7830 I'd like to point out that the strait of hormuz is like a key strategic access point that could be fought over in a global conflict, like in World War 1 you had the Dardenelle straits, in World War 2 you had the Suez Canal. maybe in world war 3 you'd have the strait of hormuz.  The US Also doesn't it seem odd that USA is so concerned by a possible Iran attack on Saudi Arabia to the point of imposing furthersanctions? I mean what business should the Us have with that when the Saudis are the victims. I've thought that perhaps Usa or the saudis attacked the plant to further conflict with Iran, but I'm not really sure. Do you guys think this is part of a larger plan where usa plans to invade 7 countries: Iraq,Somalia,Libya, Syria, Sudan,Lebanon,Yemen Sometimes I think there's no difference in Trump and Obama,in that they're planted politicians.They both seem to be taking steps in the 7 country invasion plan. Look at the first link below for more detailed info. Click the first link that pops up in the search bar if you don't have those ad results. I tried pasting the link directly but it doesn't seem to successfully redirect you to the reddit thread.  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=pnac+a+document+between+israel+and+Us+to+invade+7+countries&atb=v168-1&ia=web The Jews Also doesnt trump seem to be leaning towards Jewish interests and pro-Israel? I mean isnt it convenient for Israel that middle eastern countries surrounding it are being invaded by USA and having "democracy spread" for their benefit? Here's a video about Trump and the Jews, like always do your own research and point out anything you find interesting here.  https://www.bitchute.com/video/i2JYZcaoaY2g/ The Simpsons I mean the Simpsons predicted Trump would be president back in the year 2000. Surprisingly, they  also predicted he would crash the economy and you see reports of the coming 2020 recession.  here's the simpson clip and below that is more of the same kind if you're interested:       
    • One thing I cant stand the thought of is a interfering mother in law.  If she's constantly invading my space and interfering    I'd tell her where to go    lol 
    • Bani clearly says in kalyug  which is the era where everything goes wrong that women will take lead,  this is just one of the characteristics on kalyug ,  men will become puppets. A man's downfall is when he becomes a slaves to his senses     that's when a man becomes weak   he loses his dharma.  Men should also keep secrets to themselves    sharing feelings and what's deep inside is also what weakens a man.    Media which is ran by feminists, gays and liberals have completely brainwashed men.  Every man should try to become the best man he can become       fck what media is saying     
    • Just last week down my road a Pakistani woman kicked her husband out of the house because she wanted him to put their sons name on his bank account. She herself doesnt work. The husband refused  and she kicked him out and said she ain't gonna let him back in till he agrees. His son then hit him on the face.   Growing up I always thought women were victims and men were the big bad ones   but now I'm older iv realized men and women are just bad as each other.  Men get angry quick and start abusing and hitting, while women are bad in a more sly plotting way.    
    • They already have started destroying the traditional family unit    just look at the UK.  Feminism is a good example of why women shouldn't take lead.  The sexual revolution movement in 60s in the west was led by women/feminists and since then there has been no looking back! It's just getting worse and worse     they started it.    Men can't even talk back at women or argue back in public because they will be called sexist     thats right where feminists want men to be      Women also do a lot of stirring in punjabi families    it's no secret   brothers fall out with each other all the time because their wives keep filling their ears.   Funny how brothers get on really well before marriage but then after marriage it all changes.  its all stated in kalki avatar and dasam bani     it's all coming true.
