Publisher's summary

The first complete audio recording in English of the spiritual text of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib with beautiful, soothing background music. This relaxing recording enables an English-speaking audience to understand and experience the spiritual wisdom of the Sikh faith.    

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is more than just a scripture. The Sikhs regard and respect the Granth (holy book) as their living Guru. The revealed holy text spans 1,430  pages and contains the actual words spoken by the founders of the Sikh religion (Six of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism).    

The Sikh Gurus not only incorporated their own writings but also included the writings of another 30 saints from different religions, places and times.  

These songs are set to 31 different musical scales, called ragas, that evoke the feelings of  different times of day, different emotions and the seasons of the year. The English translation used for the recording is by Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa, Phoenix,  Arizona, USA.

It’s a conversation with god

I have grown up listening to these words in Sanskrit. Unfortunately I wasn’t really able to understand it fully. Even when I went and listened at the Sikh temple. My family couldn’t explain it fully because they aren’t fluent speakers of English. If this is an accurate translation in to English these are the conversations between the Sikh gurus and the supreme being word millions of people live and die by. I’m thankful I can now hear it in the language I can understand the fullest. Wahe Guru

Focus on God

I have been waiting for a translation like this for years! Thank you so much for the honor and gift of the Holy Scriptures in my language.
The most beautiful collection of praise on the earth.

An open secret for the world

As an American born Sikh going to Gurdwara (Sikh place of worship), I never fully understood the kathas (explanations of the shabad)delivered by the raagis (Sikh priests). My understanding of the faith came from classes held in my youth and through my parents, first generation immigrants. Like a lot of immigrant children, the beauty of our cultures are not necessarily taught well due to a language barrier.

This audiobook is helping me realize what the beauty of Sikhi truly is. For the first time in my life, I’m understanding the words of the guru in my first language. I understand that the true translation of Gurbani is meant to be determined by the reader, and interpretations vary from person to person due to the poetic nature of Gurbani. However, I feel a connection to the faith of my ancestors for the first time in a way I have never felt before. It makes me want to understand the Gurbani for myself.

If the world only knew the message of acceptance and love in the Guru Granth Sahib, a secular world without hatred and war would flourish. You do not need to be a Sikh to appreciate the message. I just finished Book 2, chapter 22 and the message in that chapter is universal. A message I wish every person in the world could hear.

Thank you Sikhnet for making/publishing this and everything else you do.

Lovely, just glitched at the end

I loves it overall. As one who's dipping into all sorts of world religions, it's one of the best ways I've found to start learning and loving the basics of the Guru Granth. I wish they had one for the Dasam Granth as well. The voice actors aren't always stellar, but given the character and length of the work I imagine they were volunteers, or mor enthusiastic than skilled. They do fine. The key issue for me is that the last 19 hours or so won't play. I've redownloaded the whole thing, and the file must be corrupted or something, because it won't play. Fix that, and I think it's a perfect background for either focused study or learning by osmosis as you do other tasks

Sounds like AI

The speech is very disjointed, like individual words were recorded and then assembled by machine transcription

great for my mental health

I have been listening to this recording of SGGS daily for 2 years. I appreciate the pace of reading and soundscape which backs the readings. English translation is a bit frustrating, there is a lot of gendering of Waheguru ji but this recording is a great choice for English language speakers wanting to follow the path of Sikhi.

good but the "pause" throws me off

can someone let me know if the "pause" has a reason, I assume it's meant for a hymn or liturgy but as someone who is listening just for the text it throws me off quite a bit
