|A variety of options for the Banis have been provided. Since there is limited viewing space on a PDA it is best to choose the Bani files that best suits your needs. Some people just read the Gurmukhi. Some cannot read Gurmukhi but want to recite the Banis in Gurmukhi, so follow the "Romanized" pronunciation guides. Others might like the Romanized version along with the English translation. You can experiment and find which Bani format is easiest for you. |
