History of Damdami Taksal

The tenth King, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji, were at Sri Anandpur Sahib delivering blessing Sikhs with Their pious company. A Gursikh who would complete his daily prayer of the Panj Granthi (a collection of prayers from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) with love and respect made a mistake in pronouncing the ‘ਕੈ’ (kai) in the following Gurbani line as ‘ਕੇ’(kay):

krqy kI imiq krqw jwxY kY jwxY guru sUrw ]3]

The Creator Himself knows His own extent; and does the the Brave Guru. ||3||

mY inrgux bKis nwnku vycwrw ]5]2]

I am worthless; please forgive Nanak, the meek. ||5||2||

This error changed the meanings of the line from as shown above to: ‘The Creator Himself knows His own extent; what does the Brave Guru know?’ implying that the Gurus did not know. Guru Sahib asked the Sikh to read Gurbani carefully but he made the same mistake again. Guru Sahib asked Singhs to walk to the Sikh

What is Santhya?

Santhya entails becoming truly humble and considering oneself as a wife of Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji, as per

qU ipru guxvMqw hau AauguixAwrw ]

You, O Husband Lord, are meritorious, while I am without merit.

mY inrgux bKis nwnku vycwrw ]5]2]

I am worthless; please forgive Nanak, the meek. ||5||2||

, staying in the company of holy, humble and selfless saints and learning the spellings, meanings and pronunciation of Gurbani. When one is in the company of Gursikhs who are always absorbed in Gurbani when walking, talking, eating and sleeping, one gets blessed with the priceless Love of the Lord.

Guru Granth Sahib Ji's verified text, audio and video of recitation

The spellings of more than few hundred Gurbani words vary across different handwritten and printed versions of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Bhagat Ji compared more than 400,000 words of Gurbani across more than three different sources. This resulted in a 'Shudh' SGGS file which formed the base of recording the complete recitation of SGGS. The text and the audio have been combined to produce novel videos that allow you to do a complete Sehaj/Akhand paath at home. You can also use the videos to master pronunciation of Gurbani while practicing at home!

The journey to record the first correct recitation ਸ਼ੁੱਧ ਉਚਾਰਨ of SGGS

The Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandak Committee (SGPC) changed the opening clauses of 523 Shabds of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in mid 1950s. After a decade long protest by Gursikhs from Damdami Taksal, Rara Sahib, Khalsa Diwan Society etc, 5 Singhs from Damdami Taksal undertook the task of spotting and undoing the changes. 50 years down the road in 2005, Bhagat Ji compared more than 400,000 words of Gurbani across more than three different sources. This resulted in a 'Shudh' SGGS file which formed the base of recording the complete recitation of SGGS.
