Kirtan with English sub-titles

Recommended Posts

Seems like a good thing your trying to do. Best of luck with it.

As a suggestion, you could provide links to shabd (in nirdaareth raag of course) and then provide the transliterations and translations links to sri granth.com, that way the new learners are also getting access to Maharaj on-line, and will be confident to find translations for kirtan they find in the future.

Prof Surinder Singh used to have a few professional kirtan videos on sikhi tube, with English subtitles, exactly what you are looking for, they may still be there, but the site seems to have been hijacked by one particular group, so not sure if they wouldn't have removed it.

English transliterations:

raag ga-orhee ravidaas jee kay paday ga-orhee gu-aarayree..................... (This is the title description of the shabad)

Raag Gauree, Padas Of Ravi Daas Jee, Gauree Gwaarayree:

raam gus-ee-aa jee-a kay jeevnaa.

O Lord, Master of the earth, Life of the soul,

mohi na bisaarahu mai jan tayraa. ||1|| rahaa-o. .............. ( Beginning of shabad when sung, note this line is repeated

please do not forget me! I am Your humble servant. ||1||Pause||...............after each stanza)

mayree harahu bipat jan karahu subhaa-ee.

Take away my pains, and bless Your humble servant with Your Sublime Love.
