Why is the GGS Project important to you? - Jasleen Kaur

This project aspires to make the Guru Granth Sahib accessible to English speakers globally. People from all around the world can build that deeper connection that they couldn’t before. Beyond that, there are increasing generations of Sikhs in the diaspora who do not consume Panjabi content, let alone the Guru Granth Sahib. The universal messages and timeless wisdom of Sabad are trapped behind a disconnection with the script and lexicon of the time. Research, interpretation, and technology converging to make Guru Granth Sahib accessible to all! https://app.gurugranthsahib.io
