416 Years & Counting: Sikhs Worldwide Decode Infinite Wisdom

416 Years & Counting: Sikhs Worldwide Decode Infinite Wisdom in the form of The Guru Granth Sahib Project....

The Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) announces the first official release of The Guru Granth Sahib Project (TGGSP) website to coincide with the First Prakash Purab (Illumination day) of then known Adi Granth in 1604. SikhRI is making the timeless treasure-house accessible for today's seekers, scholars, and techies to connect with the Sabad-Wisdom.

Three years ago, the Guru Granth Sahib Project was envisioned as a curative-collaborative effort. Its research and development phase has completed eight different Banis (Compositions). Its technology, UX paradigm, and user persona were developed in the last few months. The current team consists of 31 members.

“I consider SikhRI to be a leading research organization with 18 years of demonstrable record in delivering several key projects in educational resources. When they approached me about starting TGGSP, I took this on as a challenge that intermixes content, technology, and marketing. If we get this right, and I believe we will, this will become the most important initiative to scale Sikh teachings for global audiences,” remarked Prof. Mohanbir Singh Sawhney, global IT Marketing expert, and TGGSP Strategic Alliance partner...

...This is another SikhRI milestone on a twenty-year journey to complete the research on each word of Guru Granth Sahib: etymology, grammar, and meaning. “The team of subject matter experts carves a literal translation and an interpretive transcreation. Then, a commentary is composed. All is done in contemporary English and Panjabi while incorporating musical, poetical, and historical dimensions,” added Dr. Jaswant Singh, TGGSP’s Content Lead.

We are excited to release complete work to date on Asa ki Var: it is about 300,000 words (equivalent of 629 pages). We will be releasing Banis in the coming weeks on TGGSP site.
