    Sat Sri Akal everyone

    I understand there are a number of highly regarded English translations of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

    Before I commit to purchasing a particular version in hard copy, I wonder if there is anywhere I can view the texts online

    I would also be grateful for your recommendations

    Thank you

    You can read Sri Guru Granth Sahib online at either Search Gurbani: Gurbani Research Website or at http://www.srigranth.org

    Each site has its own special strengths. searchgurbani hosts the translaiton of Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa and has a state of the art search engine for gurbani searching. It also supports Mahan Kosh and other major research resources. srigranth on the other hand hosts translations by both Ddr. Sant Singh Khalsa and Professor Manmohan Singh.

    Another site that hosts online is SikhiToTheMAX - Enabling Gurmat Knowledge

    Two of the 3 above allow you to download desktop versions of their translations of Guru Granth Sahib, the amrit kirtan indices, and Dasam Granth. They are searchgurbani.com and sikhitothemax.com. The desktop versions come complete with the capability of making PowerPoint presentations and searching text. They are free.

    You can also download translations in both .doc and .pdf format if you want printer friendly versions. Go to this site. http://ww<cite>w.gurbanifiles.org/translations/index.htm
    These translations tend almost all of them to be by Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa

    Not sure about download, but Pritam Singh Chahils 4 Volume Tranlation and Transliteration (side by side) is worth an investment.

    Avoid any Jatha based or Taksal based translations.

    I would be grateful if you could please explain the origins of 'Jatha and Taksal'
    therefore who are they? what do they believe that you have objections with?

    many thanks in advance
