    Is it true that a reinterpretation/rewriting/changing of the SGGS is being done by the Radaswamis or the Naamdaris?

    This is something a friend has just asked me, and its the first I have heard of it, something along the lines that a 'Guru' from one or the other group 'disowned' their own son because of it.

    Clarification is the way forward ...

    A seeker.

    Jaswinder Ji,

    Unscrupulous minds have and will continue to try their best to distort & twist the meanings of Gurbani to suit their requirements. The main reason i think for this is that we, ourselves, hardly strive to understand the meaning. The task of such unscrupulous minds becomes even more simpler to mislead our aimless minds.

    Please let us know how SGGS Ji can be rewritten or changed ? Whosoever is telling you all such things is confusing you and nothing more.

    I never heard of any re-writing thing. But yes, Guru Sahib is getting translated into different languages on a continuous basis. Not sure though, about how the authenticity of original thoughts is maintained by translation.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
