Sangat Ji, I want to go more in depth into bani and want to read from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The problem is I am not in a position where I can go to the Gurudwara and learn. I found a site online http://www.granthsahib.com/ which is practically the guru granth sahib ji online. I was thinking that I could read a few pages a day, enough to be done a reading(sej path?) in 2 months, everyday after rehras sahib. But I was wondering if the sangat could give me a tips about how to do this respectfully, and if i should do it on the internet. (Anything from how many pages I should do, to how to include the bani I read in my ardaas, how to keep track of my progress, any shabad or bani I should do before starting each day)

Any advice is appreciated!

Veer ji, its nice to hear you have got the pyaas in your heart to learn more about Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. Let me say this before I even attempt to answer: I am not an expert at rehat, nor I am an expert at gurbani (perhaps never will) but still, this is what I do for sehaj paath on the computer (i have a pdf file but its pretty much the same thing i suppose):

1. Firstly, id suggest you delete any anti-gurmatt material on your disk. If you have any songs/pics etc, I would suggest you move them to some seperate disk if you wish to retain them, otherwise just get rid of such stuff.

2. Make sure your laptop/computer is nice and clean physically i mean, coz once you open Gurbani on it, according to me, it becomes a saroop and that needs to be taken into account.

3/ Before doing the path, kindly take a shower or if not possible, do a panj ishanaan (wash you hands/feet/face/brush etc). Basically, follow the same rehat as you would before/while doing your nitnem. Close as many windows on your computer as possible, close any instant messaging apps and the like, so that Guruji have the highest precedence. Keep your laptop/computer at a higher place than yourself, then start the paath.

4. About the ardaas, i think its the respect that matters more (which you have :) ), just recite the normal ardaas and say 'Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib ji de ang. ___ de sehaj paath ji di ardaas hai ji', and bhull chukk di maafi as well because there are bound to be mistakes while doing Guru Granth Sahib ji's paath (i most certainly do!), and that may Waheguru ji give you more strength to recite shudh gurbani.

5. You can keep track of your progress by making simple notes in a notepad file and save it with an appropriate title, and at a place on ur disk where there is no 'clutter'.

6. According to my tucch buddhi, I think you should start with doing a manglacharan uchaaran before starting, and once you are done for the day, make sure you read the entire ang instead of leaving it in the middle.

As i said, I am no expert, so please excuse if I have said something that is not appropriate! May Waheguru Ji bless you with all the happiness of the naam!

Fateh ji!

GURU FATEH JI ,

Congratulations for having so much of love for Bani , and inclination to do Sahej

Path Sahib , from sources available . I too am not an expert in Rehat maryada , but had a chance to have sangat with many highly literate Gurmukh Sants , and this is what I have learned that Sikhi is not rigid !! Highly flexible . We have to be in rehat maryada for sure , but if the circumstances are such one can do naam simran everytime anywhere !!. Hukam is "Aath pehar aaradhiye "!!

There are so many people like me also staying in foreign countries where we dont have a single Gurdwara Sahib also . So , I do not see any harm if we are reading the Bani of Sri Guru Granth Sahibji online , and keeping our soul and mind with Guruji !! I myself keep listening to live kirtan on the net , listening to puratan ragi Singhjis , and listening to progg from gurmat sangeet projects also . As said by another veerji , I too agree that u can have a bath / paanj ishnan , keep the computer on a table / higher place , and do manglacharan as we normally do when we take the Hukamnama from Guru Granth Sahibji , and you can start your Sehaj Path Sahib !! Atleast I see no harm and a lot better than wasting time on something else !! May Waheguru ji Bless You !!

Sangat ji , I maybe wrong , pls excuse me , I beg your pardon with folded hands . Just have exressed my views and what I learnt from may mahapurush jis in my life .

:waheguru:

Waheguru g ka khalsa waheguru g ki fateh

I also want to start guru Granth sahib ji via mob. App. I have never read Punjabi but doing path in Hindi and also have faced issue while doing any path first time and pronouncing Gurmukhi language. So kindly pleased me with your opinions.

What's the procedure to start first time?

How many pages or angs I need to read?

Before starting I need to make deg l, read hukamnama, then ardas and start path after finishing ardas again? Kindly clear me all.

Please Forgive me if I say anything wrong as I don't have much knowledge in Sikhism.

Sadh Sangat da dhanwad

Please forgive me in advance, i am not a knowledgeable person. When starting a sehaj paath, i have been told to do ardaas with deg. But ardaas should be done in front of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jis full saroop. So do the beginning ardaas not with sanchiya or computer. In ardaas say, i will be starting a sehaj paath, please bless me with sumat n help me to do it right. Then take hukamnama. Then read 1st ang of Sri guru granth sahib ji or at least 5 pauriyan of japji sahib. Then say fateh n give out prashaad/degh. 

After this, u can do sehaj paath anywhere, on computer, mobile phone, sanchiya. Just cover ur head n sit in high, clean place. You can do as many angs( pages) u want. Just remember to end at the end of a shabad or pauri. Do not leave off in middle of a shabd or  pauri. So the end always has word nanak and lots of numbers. Then say the last 2 lines twice n say fateh. 

When u get to end, near ang 1426. U will need to again make deg, n do these last angs on full saroop of sggs. N do ardaas n hukamnama

    • Changing his viewpoint on Sikhs being vegetarian -   
    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
