diffrent gutka


Recommended Posts

1. 'Gutka' carrys only original text.

2. 'Teeka' means 'explanation' or 'clarification'. Basically, 'Teeka' includes word-meaning, translation, explanation etc; but only translation (without explanation) is also called 'Teeka' now-a-days. 'Teekas' of Sanskrit texts by Sri Shankaracharya are not 'translation', but deep 'explanation. So, it is not neccesary that a 'Teeka' must be a 'translation'.

3. 'Steek' means 'Sa+Teeka'. It means 'original text with Teeka'. Practically, Teeka and steek are used for same meaning.

(Such definitions mostly are not applicable on most of Sikh writers, because 'Singhaan Da Panth Niraala'). :D


1. 'Sukhmani Gutka' is just original text of Sri Sukhmani Sahib.

2. 'Sukhmani Steek' or 'Sukhmani Teeka' (or Steek Sukhmani or Teeka Sukhmani) is translation of Sri Sukhmani Sahib, mostly with original text.
