Tried accessing these and both seem to be down, anyone else having the same experience?

 

This site can’t be reached

www.srigranth.org took too long to respond.

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.

    • Jesus said the same things to the Pharisees as Guru Nanak did to the Brahmins. Read this and you will find similarities in him telling the pharisees that they will suffer too, though he did not specify hell. e does talk about punishment, which we will assume in offered only in hell or on earth. It cannot be in heaven as he talks about them blocking the gates of heaven for others too. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+23&version=CEV

    • What're you talking about ??!!! In Bhai Gurdas ji's vaaran , it's clearly mentioned WaHeGuRu mantra is composed by uniting the names of god in 4 yugas. W - Wasudev (Satjug) H - Hari (Dwapar) G - Gobind (Kalyug) R - Raam (Treta) As per hindus , Parbrahm is the origin of all things  Hari means Krishna , and Krishna lived in Dwapar yug. But Krishna was named after Parbrahm , as Krishna means "attractor" , one of the names of brahm. Hindus slowly started equating Krishna to Hari.  Ramchandar is from treta, the son of Dasrath. Ram chandra means (moon of Raam) or that which reflects the character of Raam. So Raam was actually another name of Parbrahm.  Wasudev is from Satjug . Wasudev means "the residing lord". And Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj is from Kalyug.  Go(earth / vedas/ knowledge) + bind (center focal point). So Gobind means "the focal point of knowledge".  So the mantar makes sense . And TBH , our current abrahamic kinda views of sikhi are far more superficial. We really need to chew in our understanding the baani properly. I agree we don't believe in hindu devi devte, but TBH karam , dharam philosophy is much older than sikhi . What was lost and found & something which was not earlier revealed is what we collectively call "sikh matt". It's purely our egos that we despise at anything "hindu" , whereas we ourselves believe in concepts like Karam philosophy, Rebirth, need of Guru , etc which were first found in upanishads (concluding portion of vedas).
