SikhNet Launches English Audio of Siri Guru Granth Sahib

After 10 years of projecting, praying, planning, and recording, SikhNet has launched the first-ever recording of the entire Siri Guru Granth Sahib in English. This is an amazing gift for millions of people, bringing the inspiration of the living Guru in an accessible form.

This audio recording is over 92 hours long, with soothing background music to help the mind focus and absorb the divine words. The English translation comes from the work of Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa, widely recognized as the most understandable and contemporary translation today. This recording enables the non-Punjabi speaking listener to access and understand the spiritual wisdom and guidance of the holy Siri Guru Granth Sahib.

Thank you SikhNet! This is an important project that will serve many generations around the world.

 


Guru Nanak Inspires the Focus of Fall SDI Yatras in India

2019 marks the 550th birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the one who wrote the Japji Sahib and brought to earth the pure light that has opened the hearts of untold millions.  Meditating on the words of Guru Nanak opens the soul to the pervasive and amazing glory of the Divine. The Bani of Guru Nanak brings courage to the spirit, comfort to the mind, and illumination to the soul.

This November, Sikh Dharma International and 3HO will join together in India for the Light of Guru Nanak Yatra – a historical and spiritual journey to join the world in celebrating the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. For individuals who would like to deeply explore the sacred prayer of JapJi written by Guru Nanak, Sikh Dharma International is hosting a special course to be held in Anandpursahib, India, in November as part of the Guru Nanak Yatra.
