I have found some english translations of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, for about $80.00 on the internet, which is great because that means I will have more access to the Guru and won't have to starve myself by relying only on the internet. My problem is that I'm unsure I'd be able to give the Guru the proper respect deserved. Aren't we supposed to bow in the presence of the Guru? That shouldn't pose too much of a problem aside for the severe criticisms I'll face from my family. I will probably keep Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji wrapped in a clean cloth on a safe shelf in my bedroom, would this be acceptable? What about when I walk into my room to get something, do I have to bow even though Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is wrapped up on my shelf? My parents refuse to let me tie a turban, so do I have to cover my head even if Sri Guru Granth Sahib is wrapped up on my shelf or do I only cover my head when I am reading? I want to be as devout a Sikh as I can possibly be, nothing makes me happier. Even if that means waiting a few more years before having the Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji in my house.
