About

“Sādh Saṅgat” in the Sikh parlance refers to the congregational body of committed human beings who aspire toward the attainment of self-realization while alive through the dual-act of active engagement with the Divine Word (gur śabad) and loving adherence to the long-established traditions (rahit maryādā) of the Panth.

This Shabad is there on page 151-13, in Rag Gauree. http://www.srigranth.org is the search engine.

Dr Mohan Singh Ji,

It appears the question was regarding search on sadhsangat.com. In this connection I have given the following reply.

The problem of search has been resolved and I an progressively updating the past posts; those from Sukhmani Sahib on page 262 onwards have been updated. Kindly go to sadhsangat.com and type the page number say SGGS p 465, or just 465, and it will display the page. Some posts start in the middle of a page, so there will be two posts displayed for that page. I will be grateful if you check and advise if it works. Thanks

Gurfateh Rawel Singh ji

I have used your blog for a long time and have recommended it to friends. Now I depend on your translations of SGGS very often. But they are hard to search. For example, I do not know even how to get back to the first one you have done.

What I have been doing is pasting an entire tuk in Gurmukhi font into the Google search bar with “Sadhsangat” next to it. That takes me right away to the shabad I am looking for and all of the surrounding information. There has to be a better way. Can you help?

Any way we are blessed by the work you are doing and I think you for being able to share this good fortune.

Rewal Singh Ji: The search engine does not seem to work. I tried a couple of months ago and was informed that it is being updated. If one types in a page # 151 or 201, for example, search takes us somewhaere else. Would appreciate any help please?

Thank you Bhaji!

I tried that and it did work. It is important to follow the format you use of SGGS pp. xxx-xxx to get the best results.

Warm regards,
Narayanjo

Thanks Narayanjot Ji,

It is not necessary to give these details. Kindly go to sadhsangat.com and type the page number in the search space and the first few lines of the post will show up, click on the the top line showing page numbers and the whole post will come up. Then please go to the desired page. Guru Rakha

Gurfateh Rawel Singh ji,

I came across this site while looking for a meaning on Man Mero Gaj (Bhagat Namdev di Bani) that could resonate… I find many times the English translations used in http://www.srigranth.com and http://www.searchgurbani.com not able to grasp the full meaning (in context) and came to your site. I have been browsing and totally enjoying and bookmarking too.

want to give you the warmest thank you for your Seva.

Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh 🙂

I don’t know which font do you use. I see that words display fine on the web, but, when I try to copy in a word, Gurmukhi words are not displayed correctly.
Perhaps, you may list somewhere on main page, the font you are using and where to access it to download. I am sure the font is in Unicode, so that it will be displayed uniformly across all the platforms.
Thanks for this important Sewa.

In 1522 Martin Luther, a Catholic priest translated the Bible into German allowing the common people to have access to the scriptural writings and no longer be forced to go through the priesthood. 19 years later. 1541, in India Guru Angad formalized Gurmukhi script allowing the common people to have access to the scriptural writings and no longer be forced to go through the priesthood. It was also a step to raise everyone to the same level in society. I was speaking to a Christian lady about this and her response was “God’s hand was there.” On two different continents, two dramatically different faith traditions, the same monumental event occurred. We are all one.

Wah!!! Gurbani – understanding the meaning of GurShabad, no matter how minuscule, automatically leads to saying softly “Wah(Guru)!

Thank you S.Rawel Singh ji for helping understand Gurbani wonderfully.

Gur Fateh jio.
