Yes, same here, I tried accessing the first one, as that's the one I normally visit, but just gets stuck on the wheel going round. 

Never been on the other one.

Real shame, wonder if they simply lost funding or were unable to manage the sites! Using Searchgurbani atm, not the simplest platform for searching Shabads. Regardless, found what I required. thx for checking.

Srigranth.org is still down...obviously before Feb.

MESSAGE TO USERS:

A number of websites, including srigranth.org, on this server are currently not working as the server machine had completely failed in the beginning of Feb 2017, while machine managers were on vacation. 
While we are back it will take time to restore the websites. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please bear with us, as it will take some time.

 

SUGGESTED ALTERNATIVES WHILE THIS WEBSITE IS BEING RESTORED:

IF YOU OWN IPHONE OR IPAD:

INSTALL "Isher Micromedia" App from App store and use it. This App has been available for quite some time and has matured. However, improvements will happen in the future

IF YOU OWN AN ANDROID DEVICE (phone or tablet):

INSTALL "Gurbani Explorer" App from Google Play store and use it. This App is a beta version. Please report bugs if you notice.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM ABOVE DESCRIBED APPS:

These Apps are complex databases of multiple Sikh scriptures (Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Dasam Granth, Kabit & Vaaraan by Bhai Gurdas, and important writings by Bhai Nand Lal) in Gurmukhi, Devanagari and Roman, with their multiple translations that can be searched and read with ease. Apps use multiple easy to understand icons that are needed to be tapped for making selections. After searching the desired text, the user is presented with multiple reading choices. Not knowing what is possible, one may not make the maximum benefit of these App. Exploration is highly recommended. In the home page users make selection out of available choices. Once out of home page, the users will be in one of three kind of pages (1) Search-page, (2) Results page(s) and (3) Reading page(s). It is important to realize that possible options and actions will depend on the kind of page you are in.

The best thing about srigranth.org was that it allowed you to choose what you wanted to show (Prof. Sahib Singh Translation, Manmohan Singh, Dr. Sant Singh, Faridkot, etc.) and also let you hide useless stuff (like Hindi and Roman transliteration).

As an alternative, you can use searchgurbani.com, but it's not configurable like srigranth.org used to be. The nice thing about searchgurbani.com is that it allows you to search or read all four canonical sources of Sikhism (Guru Granth Sahib, Dasam Granth Sahib, Bani Bhai Gurdas Ji, Kalaam Bhai Nand Lal Ji), although it doesn't have the original text for all of Bhai Nand Lal Ji (just translations).

The interface, ease of use and search functions are more user friendly on Srigranth.org relative to SearchGurbani site. On my Android tablet, I found it impossible to effectively look up tuks despite using all the search options.

I find it absolutely stunning that srigranth.org is still not up after a few months.

I don't know how incompetent the webhost must be to have no backups whatsoever. Secondly, did the site admins also not have a single backup? Assuming they had a backup, it should not have taken more than half a day to get things back up and running on a new server.

It's not like they would have to hand-translate 1430 pages of Gurbani over again by themselves.

    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh ji I get what you mean, but why should we care if Islam is enough? If people want to practice through ethical means, then they should be allowed to practice it.. As for the final prophet title or w/e, I don`t think we can simply judge it because who knows what the truth regarding Muhammad ji was actually like. Better safe than sorry when it comes to judging ancient religious leaders, rather lets spend our time praising our own Sri Guru Sahib jis. If bhagats have followers & they are not Sikh, then let them live as well.. They will come to know the truth through kirpa of God.
    • Yeah   I really enjoy reading the threads on there, some of the translations and thoughts are very deep.
    • Yes it does matter if he was a muslim or not, this might come as a shock to you but his bani is within Guru Granth Sahib Ji. IF he was a muslim then logic begs that the path of Islam is enough to reach God because a muslim's writings are included within Gurbani. That also means that the Quran could be considered equal to Gurbani and wait for it, Muhammad was the final prophet of the lord and no one else after him counts. Do you get the conundrum now?    New comers will point to Bhagat Farid and say "he was a muslim so its ok for me to do X,Y,Z" then they'll take it a step further and say that Bhgat Namdev was a follower of Vishnu (for the record he wasn't) and start venerating his idols. Do you get the little issue? The whole point of this thread is to show people that Farid Ji was a Sikh, I don't get why your panties are in a knot over it. 
    • With Waheguru's grace I am lucky to attend them. But, I only made the effort because somebody told me to go. I haven't been able to attend the full camps all the times, but anything is better than nothing. And I've not had a miracle cure, that the health condition has completely disappeared, but we should not expect that anyways, but just leave it to Waheguru's grace for any change, no matter how small it maybe. Although, I have learned some things from them, and they did help me. So I'm glad I went and not think of not bothering to go. I did meet some people that had big improvements from them and it was inspiring to listen to them. It's all good, no harm in it and for the best as it's Gurbani. 
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh ji Why does it matter to which faith he belonged to? All I know from my limited knowledge is that he was a chardikala brahmgyani follower of Paramatman ji, and we must strive to be as blessed as him.. Regarding to if he was Muslim or not, it does not matter especially since we believe in the perfect dharma, so why worry.
