SSA, I want to start doing Sukhmani Sahib Paath. I want to know if there is any particular way to start the Paath. Do I have to make prasad and do a prayer as to what I want to ask for and then start the paath. How many days should I do it for? Should I do it for 41 or 51 days and does it matter if I do it in the English translation version? I can do it in the punjabi/english version but I don't understand it. Thanks in advance.

Sat nam. There is no maryada on reading Sukhmani that I know of. I recommend at least 40 days, and in the Gurmukhi because the sound current is so perfect. (Not that there is anything wrong with reciting in English.) Perhaps once a week you would read it in English to understand it. You also might find you that you understand the English better after you've recited the Gurmukhi for 40 days.
