Understanding Japji classes: Tapah gurdwara
By Asia Samachar Team | MALAYSIA |

What better way of celebrating the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak than trying to understand the Sikh scriptures?

Forty-four Malaysian gurdwaras have embarked on celebrating the event, celebrated the world over with all types of programmes, by conducting weekly understanding Gurbani classes.

Coordinated by the Malaysian Gurdwaras Council (MGC), 41 gurdwaras took part in the maiden programme that ran from December 2018 to June 2019. The classes covered Japji Sahib, one of the seminal bani written by Guru Nanak.

“The response was tremendous from the Sanggat. We regret were unable to meet demand for classes in Sabah and Sarawak due to logistics reasons,” an MGC official told Asia Samachar.

The second phase starts in mid-August 2019. Interested persons can contact their local gurdwara to join the classes.

COURSE FEATURES:

1. Understanding of Gurbani grammar

2. Correct pauses to elicit the right meaning

3. Correct pronunciation of Gurbani shabads

4. Going beyond literal meanings to understand correct, inherent meanings

5. Interactive sessions with two-way dialogue

6. Weekly 90-minute classes.

7. Certificate of course completion for regular participation.

8. Free of cost. Donations welcome.

9. Course manual provided.
