Sikh Scriptures - A wealth of treasure

Sikhism like all other major faiths has a vast amount of scriptures both historical and spiritual. The majority of which are found in the original Gurmukhi script but others can be found in Hindi, Sanskrit, Braj, Shahmukhi and Farsi.

What I hope to do with this blog is to translate into English the basic meanings of a number of Granths starting with the Sri Nanak Parkash written by the Kavi (Poet) Bhai Santokh Singh Ji. I will not be giving a historical analysis as this can be heard through the exegenesis of the text by Sant Giani Kirpal Singh Ji Boparai Walae on

The translation of the text will be basic and will not contain additional commentary as it is designed so people who wish to read this blog will be able to grasp the basic content of the scriptures.

Also I would have loved to have put the Gurmukhi to each lie from the texts within the blogs however I am struggling to get to grips with the Gurmukhi Unicode and for this reason have just put on the English translation which is numbered so it can be followed along with the Gurbani which is available on thanks to the seva of Sant Baljinder Singh Ji Rara Sahib Walae

If you do get a moment please take some time out and have a read of the blogs posted on here. Hopefully this blog will be regularly updated.

If there are any mistakes I apologise in advance for these and am happy for anyone to add their constructive or negative feedback/criticism for anything I have stated.


  1. This is a very nice initiative Kamal veer jeo! All the best!

  2. Guru Kirpa, it by the Grace of the Guru if he so will he alone will complete this task i will be happy to be the lowly vessel to assist with the Glory of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
