Summary of Question:Japji Sahib Da Correct Ucharan - I Wonder
Category:Gurbani
Date Posted:Friday, 3/28/2008 5:22 PM MDT

I have only recently started reading Japji Sahib and my Punjabi is still in its raw! state. Hence the question. I question throughout but Mool Manter will do for this test.


Everybody reads it as and I have heard a few as well;

ik-oNkaar sat naam kartaa purakh nirbha-o nirvair akaal moorat ajoonee saibhaN gur parsaad.

where as my reading of Punjabi will read as follows;

ik-oNkaar sati naamu kartaa purkhu nirbha-o nirvair akaal moorati ajoonee saibhaN gur parsaadi.

Note: Sati naamu - purkhu - moorti - parsaadi.

Your thoughts greatly appreciated.

As my Punjabi is a little dicey, I normally have audio going while I read it but it is off putting when I hear audio that is slightly different to the written paathh. They seem drop vowels very illogically.

Thanks, Pravesh
