Starting today SikhNet is testing out a new service which will allow you to listen to an English translation of the Daily Hukamnama from Harimandir Sahib. My friend Sukha Singh from the UK has gracefully accepted my request to help with the translation seva. I just heard the first recording from today’s Hukamnama and enjoyed it a lot. I’m excited :)
Normally when I read the basic english translation of the hukam I don’t always get the deeper meaning of the hukam. This audio translation I think will help me start to understand the message better, and learn Gurbani better. I hope the youth and other English speaking Sikhs will take advantage of this service to deepen their connection with the Guru and get a better understanding of the Guru’s message to us all.
We are doing this service as a test for the next month. If people find it usefull then hopefully we will continue it on a regular basis after that. So, if you are interested you can start to listen to this every day. Let us know what you think. Constructive feedback is always appreciated.
Also Get the free Hukamnama Audio Podcast.This will enable you to have different options to get the daily hukamnama automatically. Whether it is on your computer or on a portable MP3 player like the Ipod. Cool eh?
