  1. Gurbani.org

    Hi This is a really good site, especially for those of you that do not know how to read Paath: https://www.gurbani.org/articlemenu.php I am not involved with the site at all. Also I do not agree with all their views, approach and translations. (e.g. They take a Advait approach, but I follow Bhakti) But it still makes "food for thought", and is nice for those who do not know how to read Gurbani.
  2. A recording of Sant Mani Singh Ji talking about Sikhi, Naam and Gurbani. This very unique and special Enlightened being is the first brahmgyani to be born in England (outside of India). https://youtu.be/Swpq55f3msc
  3. Hello people this is a bit or harmless (depends who you ask) advertising to let you know that for the past year I have been sunning a podcast called Sikhism in Snippits and through this the sponsors have enabled me to write and publish a number of books. These are Sampardaic and in English. The opportunity was taken to translate and promote Sikh books and literature not available. If you are interested they can all be found ont he link below. Please take a look and if interested you can order directly off the site. If you have any questions please contact me on kam1825@hotmail.com http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/Kamalpreet_Singh_Pardeshi Thanks
  4. Apart from the sundar gutka app which is great but I want a book copy.
  5. Anyone have Kalgidhar Chamatkar in english? Or sooraj parkash granth in english?
  6. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I have a couple of dictionaries and recently got a book on Gurbani grammar from Sikh Research Institute. But I cannot seem to find a good dictionary in English to help translate the words used in Gurbani. Does anyone know of a good dictionary to help with my reading? I prefer to read the Gurmukhi instead of the English translations that are available, but I just still need help with a lot of the words. Thanks!
  7. Urgent Question

    I am Amritdhari for a week or so. I am learning Gurmukhi and I can read Gurmukhi at a slow and okay pace. Is it bad if I do my nitnem in gurmukhi english. Is there a less benefit doing it in gurmukhi english. I am very anxious to know. As sometimes when I do my nitnem I do it right with the pronunciation but I thought to myself as long as I am saying the word right it is the same benefit. Any answers or advice. I will be taking santhiya later on but I was wondering is there a difference?

  9. I came across a link for Read Along Gurbani Tutor. Supposedly, it goes through word by word of the SGGS text, highlighting the word, reads the word aloud, and moves to the next word. It's meant to help people who are unable to read SGGS to understand how to pronounce the text. Unfortunately, I am unable to get the link to post in this textbox, but it's at www.ektuhi.com, and then click the third option from the left in the top links bar. It should show an embedded YouTube video of the Gurbani Tutor and a button to download it. I haven't downloaded it yet, does anyone know if it's safe to download on PC? If anyone has used it, did you find it helpful? Thanks

  14. With Guru Sahib’s and Sangat’s kirpa, Basics of Sikhi was invited to Calgary, Canada to do katha and deliver our One day course called, “Re-Assessing the Fundamentals – Vaheguru, Guru and You” on Sunday 17th March 2pm-7pm. More than 100 youth and elders attended the course, which was in English and designed build up from core concepts. All the talks from the pilot One Day Course are already on .The talks were: (1) What is Vaheguru? (2) What is Guru? (3) What is a Sikh? (4) The Breadth and Depth of Sikhi (5) The science of connecting to Vaheguru (6) How to unite as a Panth? (7) How could we explain Sikhi to someone? We also devoted time for questions and enjoyed healthy langar provided by youth sevadaars. The feedback and audience interaction was amazing and everyone seemed to enjoy spending time learning about Sikhi. Although there were people from all parts of the Sikhi spectrum, i.e., those who had been Amritdhari for many years to those totally new to Sikhi, everyone was able to take something away with them. Bhai Gurinder Singh of Calgary who had organized the whole trip wrote, “These few days really sparked up the whole city. I had so many calls from people telling me how much they loved the course and Katha. It was very inspirational.” Bhai Sehajvir Singh, a respected local youth parcharik wrote,“I found the course really eye-opening. I have been on this path for most of my life and this is the first time I have been so deeply affected by the profound philosophy and concepts presented. It may be labelled ‘Basics of Sikhi’ and yes the approach taken does it make it easy to understand but I felt this was the core of Sikhi. Its easy to put Sikhi into a box and not realize how all encompassing a blueprint it is. ” Jessie Chahal, a graduate from LSE wrote, “It was a thoughtful, insightful and inspiring talk on the value of Sikhi, the importance of having Shabad Guru as our anchor in this life of ups and downs and the power of Naam!” About Basics of SikhiWe are a physical and Youtube parchar initiative by ‘Everythings 13’ to spread Gurus wisdom in a systematic way (see our five stage plan). We have over 100 videos including the English Katha of Japji Sahib, the principal prayer of the Sikhs. We have another course called the Why Guru Course which is 12 parts and designed to be a weekly course going through history in much more depth. If you wish to support our work, click here. Future Plans for CanadaThe Canadian sangat has been very inspirational and Basics of Sikhi are planning to go there again in August to visit Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. Please contact us if you wish to help in arranging katha or the One Day Course.

  16. Has anyone been able to find this book in english/pdf form? I went to the local sikh book store and they were sold out. Tried reading the punjabi version and was left even more confused than before.
  17. Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki Fateh Sangat ji, you may not have heard of "Everythings 13" a sikh educational charity, however some of you may know about our YouTube channel "Basics of Sikhi". Most of you may not be aware that (with Guruji's kirpa and aagiaa) we're embarking on a new and comprehensive project to spread Guruji wisdom across the UK and Globally. Its called Plan BE13. Here is what our channel has on it currently.. Here is a video about Plan BE13 for 2013 Essentially we are hoping to do a 5 stage process of Parchar (1) Getting people into Sikhi (already happening) - Talks at Gurdwaras and Sikh Societies at colleges and Universities to interest youth/others into Sikhi and bring onto youtube channel - Spreading word about the Youtube Channel using facebook, twitter and and getting people into watching videos about Sikhi when they have spare time (there are around 80 videos on our youtube channel already) (2) Building a solid foundation (already happening) - holding a One Day Course +Kirtan Katha called "Re-Assessing the Fundamentals - Vaheguru, Guru and You" at various Gurdwaras (first one is due at Park Avenue Gurdwara Main Hall on the 29th December 2012) - 12 topic introductory course to Sikhi - called the WhyGuru Course. This course goes through the history of Sikhi from Guru Nanak to the present day and also has 4 separate topics which cover Guru Granth Sahib ji, The Khalsa, Raag Kirtan and Sikh Spiritual concepts of merging with the Divine. We already delivered this once in May this year and it was a success. (there is a video about this on our channel with video testimonials - we had 5 non-punjabi people attend. One lady, ex-muslim convert has now taken Amrit). (3) Learning Basics of Gurmukhi (planning done, needs filming) - A series of videos that goes into Why its important we learn Gurmukhi and How does Gurmukhi work? (Penti Akhar, Moharni) - Series of common vocabulary in Gurmukhi and how the words are put together - Basics of Santhiya - Slow paat, in video format with downloadable MP3s (4) Japji Sahib Vichaar classes (already happening) - We're doing weekly English katha of Japji Sahib and with Guru's kirpa are at the 34th Pauri. - Katha will be transcripted and put into an ebook format - Set up Japji Sahib Vichaar classes at variour gurdwaras where attendees would learn in their own time (watch the video, read ebook, watch/listen to other recommended katha (English by Bhai Sukhraj Singh, Punjabi- Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh etc) and then come together for the vichaar class at their local gurdwara (ie build a sadhsangat) to discuss Japji sahib, pauri by Pauri. (5) Further Study (to be developed as part of Plan BE13) - More Gurbani Katha - planning on Rehras sahib and Asa Di Vaar - Basics of Kirtan and Tabla - Attend an intermediate level - "WhyKhalsa WhyFateh Course" In terms of funding, our parent we've raised about £18k of our £52k target for 2013 already. 99% of this has come from the sangat, (mostly youth and non-amritdhari). We're not charging anything for katha or the courses, as we see this as Spiritual Langar (Bhugat Giaan) which should be given freely and be dependent purely on Sangat kirpa (daeaa bhandarani). Read more about the specifics of Plan BE13 here: http://www.virginmoneygiving/charities/everythings13 Please do ardaas for us to Satguru that we stay on this path and stay true to Sikhi. Thanks for reading ji, bhul chuk maaf Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki Fateh
