    re: What does the word "Ghar" mean in Guru Granth Sahib Ji?

    The word "Ghur" in SGGS is related to the musical aspect of sabads in different raagas.
    Those who are familiar with the music can understand better than common man.
    In simple terms Ghur is the reference for the number of tals/beats to be used for singing any particular composition.Ghur is therefore a sort of direction to a musicial for tals.

    There is anothor meaning of the word Ghur in SGGS .When the word Ghur is found within compositions it refers to a place of staying [as House}.and this place of stay has been refered to ones Heart.
    The word Ghur as reference to tals/beats is for the word Ghur being used in Headings of any Raag in SGGS .

    re: What does the word "Ghar" mean in Guru Granth Sahib Ji?

    Nijh Ghar in Gurbani means the"Final Merger" wiht HIM...the ultimate GOAL of us all...
    Just as the final place of a Bride is her In-Laws house...OUR final place of abode is with OUR IN-Laws (Sahura Ghar) Akal Purakh as we are His Brides....
    Ghar is also used rfor abode/dwelling..as in sunyeh ghar ka prauhnna..guest arriving at an empty house..
    So depend on the CONTEXT...

    jajab ji it may also be worthwhile perhaps to review the following excellent thread started by Ishna ji which also covers the "Ghar" and "Dar" words,
