A common and popular feature of His holiness Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji’s life was his holy sermons – short and long talks in which Satguru Ji advised the sadh sangat & other people on how to be better Sikhs and humans. We are very fortunate to have a very large number of these sermons both in audio and video media.
In April 2016, the Vishwa Namdhari Sangat (Gurdwara Sri Bhaini Sahib) released a English translation of some of Satguru Ji’s Discourses in book form. The collection is a mere drop in the ocean of the Guru’s sermons. It covers a wide range of topics including MEDITATING ON NAAM, ATTAINING PEACE OF MIND, CHARITY, FORSAKING EGO, ERADICATION OF JEALOUSY, RESPECT FOR ALL FAITHS, PRAYERS AND MEDITATION and THE IMPORTANCE OF A GURU.
In His ‘Forward’ of the book, Sri Satguru Uday Singh Ji says ‘ The concept of this (English) translation came to mind as a large number of the younger generation are unable to understand Punjabi. Satguru Ji emphasized the importance of learning punjabi for every Sikh, so that they can aid their interpretation of Gurbani; without which understanding the nuances of Sikhi can be difficult’
