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.

      Akalifauj, you tw*t........
    • Btw, you might be interested in this book. It's in regards to America, but could apply even more to Britain since the percentage of Muslims is so much higher: Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives have Penetrated Washington by Paul Sperry  https://www.amazon.com/Infiltration-Muslim-Subversives-Penetrated-Washington/dp/1595552480?tag=nypost-20 The most sinister terrorists won't be sneaking through our borders from the Middle East. They're already here. This is the untold story about the silent, yet extremely dangerous threat from the Muslim establishment in America?an alarming exposé of how Muslims have for years been secretly infiltrating American society, government, and culture, pretending to be peace-loving and patriotic, while supporting violent jihad and working to turn America into an Islamic state. In this powder keg of a book, you'll learn: How radical Muslims have penetrated the U.S. military, the FBI, the Homeland Security Department, and even the White House?where subversive Muslims and Arabs have received top-secret clearance. How they've infiltrated the chaplains program in the federal and state prison systems?a top recruiting ground for al-Qaida. How they've successfully run influence operations against our political system with the help of both Democrats and Republicans, badgering corporate boards into Islamizing the workplace. How we've been utterly duped about what the Quran does and doesn't teach. Sadly, much of anti-Western terrorism is simply Islam in practice, the text of the Quran in action. In a time when religious and political leaders are scrambling to smooth over differences in faith and beliefs, this book gives the terrifying truth abaout the very real, very deadly agenda of Islam and how it has already infiltrated key American institutions with agents, spies, and subversives.  
    • I tried and failed to find any post by user @Commuterist that triggered the socialist party account. Do you have that?
    • First of all, that clash at the Akal Takhat keeps paying us negative dividends again and again. On the one hand, what was the big deal with letting Simranjit Singh Mann address the congregation? He had been doing it for a long time without issue. On the other hand, Mann's peeps did not have to riot, certainly not pulling out kirpans. (Or was that just the SGPC Task Force?)  Stupid. Secondly, it was not religious violence per se. I suppose it would have been if Sikhs and Hindus were going at it. It was a dispute about allowing someone to make a political speech. In that sense, the riots at Berkeley and Middlebury College to prevent speakers from speaking were Christian violence, no? Even if all (most) were Christians even if nominally, that doesn't make the violence Christian violence.

      Amazing to see His grace inspire satsangat to help our sister from the entrapment of maaya.  Thank you all for such beautiful  Gursikhi support at a time when it was needed. And thank you bhenji for listening to the conscience and not your mind. He is always listening, we just need to find the ears and eyes to recognise Him. Dhan Guru, Dhan Guru Piyare
