Guru Granth Sahib Ji (the Guru for the Sikhs) contains a universal message of "one God". Allowing us to create a more tolerant and peaceful society, whereby each person can enjoy their rights of liberty.
Today, reading, singing and listening to Gurbani (singing of hymms from the Granth Sahib) has become a mere source of musical enjoyment. Continuous series of Akhand paths' and numerous Kirtan darbars being held in and outside our Gurudwara's have become ritualistic. The life of a Sikh is not changing with the times. Even those Gursikh's who have been doing Nitnem daily and paying obeisance daily at Gurudwara’s for years are seen doing deeds in their life contrary to Gurmat philosophy. The message of Guru Granth Sahib Ji on this is very clear.
So Gurbani should not be a subject of mere listening and reading. Gurbani is our Guru, and to understand the message of the Guru, and then to implement that message in our lives is the responsibility of every Sikh. In view of this urgent need and with the inspiration of Gursikh families, Guru Granth Sahib Web Academy has been started by Prof Darshan Singh Khalsa, where the effort will be made to make everyone irrespective of caste, color, and creed to understand the message of Gurbani, wherever they may be in the world.
We apologize in advance due to any technical difficulties, as this is being run on a volunteer basis, and we do our best to maintain the quality of the material.
