GURBANI101 (Learning Gurbani pauri by pauri)
Gurbani101.net has been designed to disseminate the understanding of Gurbani, Pauri by Pauri (step by step), in simple English by short emails. As any 101 course in a school is the introductory course for a subject, Gurbani101 is an introduction to the understanding of Gurbani in simple English. This is not a literal translation, as by doing that, one can loose the real meaning of what Guruji said. Audience for these translations is our young generation, which often complains that they do not understand anything when they listen to Gurbani in Gurudwara or at home and even the older generation who recite Gurbani everyday without really understanding the meanings.

The concept of sending these translations by email is to allow a person to learn the meanings of Gurbani in small steps (Pauri by Pauri) at his/her own pace and with minimum effort. In most cases, each verse of Gurbani is translated in one or two lines with meaning of each word shown below the translation. The translations are intentionally kept short, to the point, and without detailed discussions. Each email contains the translation of one or sometimes part of one Pauri or Shabad. It is hoped that after reading these emails in the morning, the thoughts of what Guruji said in that one verse or Pauri will remain in the reader’s mind throughout the day and also whenever they are reciting or listening to that verse or Pauri.

People who know Punjabi (Gurmukhi script) are fortunate because they can explore the spiritual treasures in Guru Granth Saheb without having to go through an interpreter. These translations are for those who either do not know Gurmukhi or have only a limited knowledge of the language. This is an humble attempt to try to recapture the real spirit and beauty of the original verses in Guru Granth Saheb.

    ONE SPIRIT, DIFFERENT BODIES

    After Guru Nanak Dev ji, none of the Gurus used their names in their writings. They always used the name "Nanak" as if everything was written by Guru Nanak Dev ji. This reinforces our belief that all our Gurus had the same spirit in different bodies. The eternal source of spiritual knowledge that was within Guru Nanak Dev ji was passed on to each Guru and they uttered Gurbani that originated from the same source.)
