The benefits of reading Shudh Gurbani : Bachan of Sri Guru Gobind SIngh Ji



A puratan sketch of Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji Maharaj teaching Gurbani Santhia to a young Sikh. This shows how old the tradition of Gurbani Santhia is, and the importance it was given to by all of our Guru Sahibaan.

When a Gursikh read Gurbani incorrectly at Sri Anandpur Sahib, unknowingly changing the meaning of Gurbani, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji addressed the entire Sangat explaining the great benefit of read Shudh Gurbani. Without doubt, reading Gurbani correctly and with love, we gain the happiness of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.


ਸਿਖਹੁ ਸੁਨਹੁ ਸੀਖ ਇਹੁ ਮੇਰੀ, ਬਾਣੀ ਪਢਹੁ ਸੁਧ ਕੇਰੀ। O Sikhs! Listen to my teaching, always read 'Shudh' Gurbani (correct pronunciation).

ਪਢੈ ਮਹਾਤਮ ਲਹੈ ਬਿਸਾਲ, ਹਲਤ ਪਲਤ ਮਹਿ ਹੋਇ ਨਿਹਾਲ। The benefit of doing so is very great, the person who read Shudh Gurbani shall be elated in this world and the next.

ਜੇ ਅਸੁੱਧ ਹੈ੍ ਪਢੀਐ ਸੁੱਧ ਕਰ, ਬਿਗਰੀ ਵਸਤੁ ਸੁਧਾਰਹਿ ਜਿਮ ਘਰ। If your pronunciation is not correct, then make effort to correct it (by receiving Gurbani Vidhya), in the same way one make effort to mend something that is broken in their home.

ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਦਾ ਸਿਖਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਸੁੱਧ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਪੜ੍ਹਣ ਦਾ ਉਪਦੇਸ਼ , ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰਪ੍ਰਤਾਪ ਸੂਰਜ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਰੁੱਤ ੩ ਅਧਿਆਇ ੩੪ Sri Gurpartap Suraj Granth, Ruth 3, Adhiaae 34, Mahakavi Bhai Santokh Singh Ji
