Gurmukhi books for kindle


Recommended Posts

Hello hope everyone is well, for some reason I was banned and unable to login with my original username/password.  ANyways since I have been away,  I have been  learning Gurmukhi, problem I am having is finding books written  in Gurmukhi. 

I don't want to read Guru Granth Sahib Ji or Mahan Kosh(my readingand understanding is not ready yet) ,  I need some practice material but something better than the basic alphabet and number books. 

I have tried amazon but no luck, any help would be welcomed.

For a Sikh book written in easy Punjabi, read Se Kinehiya:

https://www.amazon.com/Kinehiya-English-Sant-Sewa-Singh-ebook/dp/B08P2465WG/

You can read PDFs on Kindle this way:

After Se Kinhehiya, you may want to read this (also easy Punjabi):

https://sikhbookclub.com/Book/Roop-Gobind-Ka-Raaj-Khalsa-Ka-Sikka-Sone-Ka-By-Bhai-Rama-Singh-Ji

 

Once you've read these, you can read standard works like Bhai Vir Singh ji, etc. And then the classics like Panth Prakash (hard).

I would say I have basics down, and now around intermediate level 

Have you looked at Santokh Singh Jagdev's books? They have Panjabi text as well as English translations. I'm sure I've seen them available for free as ebooks on various Sikh book sites.

Let me know how you get along. 

 

Do you understand the structure of the Gurmukhi alphabet i.e aspirated/nonaspirated/voiced etc.?

I'm going good, the way we are learning is mukta, kanna, siara etc I'm on the latter. There is so much to learn but feels really good to read Gurbani without the use of transliteration. My punjabi teacher in India is also adding to my lexicon which is priceless.
