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.

    • How come our community has completely forgotten about the Chota and Vadda Ghallūghārā? It seems to me that it is not something our youth know and its not something that is imparted to us by our elders, at least that was the case for me, my fellow friends, and my community growing up.
    • Pen Jee, as long  it is from Wahiguru´s side, He is all mercy, blessings, forgiveness, and above all akhoot prem da bhandaar. It is we with our actions who get far away from Him or get closer to Him. He is like the Sun, always stable, always shining and irradiating, with His infinite noor, and kirpa. It all depends on us, if we walk towards Him, we benefit from its warmth and Light, but if we turn our back to Him, we walk away from Him, and enter into the darkness of agyanta. Nevertheless, He is never ever revengeful as many think Him to be. Many fools, under the influence of their  deep rooted ahankar, or agyanta,  try to make a picture of Him with human feelings/attributes, such as anger, revenge, hatred, etc .... The Bani clearly says, He is Nirvair, means, He has no enmity with anyone. Do His Bhakti as much as you can, when your state of mind permits you to do so, only then, slowly and slowly you will fill yourself with His apaar kirpa. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
    • The ...E... life !!!!!   In this world of E-mails, E-ticket, E-paper, E-recharge, E-transfer and the latest E-Governance... Never Forget "E-shwar ( God )" who makes e-verything e-asy for e-veryone e-veryday.
       
      "E" is the most Eminent letter of the English alphabet. Men or Women don't exist without "E". House or Home can't be made without "E". Bread or Butter can't be found without "E". "E" is the beginning of "existence" and the end of "trouble." It's not at all in 'war'
      but twice in 'peace'. It's once in 'hell' but twice in 'heaven'. "E" represented in 'Emotions'
      Hence,  all emotional relations like Father, Mother, Brother, Sister,wife & friends have 'e' in them. "E" also represents 'Effort' & 'Energy'
      Hence to be 'Better' from good both "e" 's are added. Without "e", we would have no love, life, wife, friends or hope & 'see', 'hear', 'smell', or 'taste' as 'eye' 'ear', 'nose' & 'tongue' are incomplete without "e". Finally no 'Life' & 'Death' without "e". Hence GO with "E",   but without E-GO.
       
    • I agree that we should create a mobile device app for Android/iOS to access the Sikh Sangat app..
