    thats good idea for learning more gurbani.

    I know that word for word is not recommended way of learning more meanings.. because sometimes there is not the exact word.. but there is always a paragraph or a sentence that can be written about it. If something can be expressed in one language it can so be also in another language.

    If you have the time sometime.. maybe you can share the meanings of jap ji Sahib. Although rite now im working on the meanings of Jaap Sahib. Ill post a copy here, or maybe email it to you if you want when iam done.

    I dont come here on this forums much, I didnt know there is so much more gurbani discussions going on here, then other forums, so il lbe here more often.

    Sat Nam;
    Thank you so much for offering to work on Jaap Sahib.
    That will be a very great help to me!

    I have already typed the 25th Pauri of JapJi for some people that wanted it here in Eugene, so I will post that below. It is said that the 25th Pauri has the power to bring prosperity. People are reading it 11 times per day, perhaps for 40 days, and some for longer than that.
    I will work on getting the rest of them into this format and post them one at a time, hopefully in the next few days.

    After posting this I notice that the spacing I had done to match words to each other is not maintained by this posting method. I have this Pauri in several formats in MSWORD and can email it to any that provide me an address. One version has Gurmukhi alone, another has Gurmukhi and only transliteration, another is like below, transliteration and English.
    Wahe Guru!

    Thank you.. Here is my email... I think I can do some proof-reading if you want also. I notice you seem to be not born into sikhi , so punjabi is not your mother language ?

    You are really good inspiration to the people who are already born into sikhism. They sometimes forget what they have.
    it is nice to know sikhism is growing.

    Here is my email address
