Gurbani Shabad Printer

Gurbani Shabad Printer

This past week we released a new feature on SikhNet (Shabad Printer) which allows you to beautifully customize, share or print any daily hukamnama or Gurbani Shabads. You can choose from many different background frames, font styles, language types (Gurmukhi, Larivaar, English Translation, Spanish Translation, Romanized, etc). You can select to view in line by line format or block format. Change the sizes and alignment and all kinds of other things. This is an easy way that anyone can customize the Daily Hukam or Gurbani to display in a really beautiful way, and share it. No need to install fonts or any software. Just browse, customize and share!

By default the SikhNet Shabad Printer displays the current Daily Hukamnama from Harmander Sahib (The Golden Temple), in Amritsar India, however you can customize it to display any Shabad using the SikhiToTheMax shabad ID (see below video for details on how to do this).

All the beautiful background frames were created from scratch by our very own Gurujot Singh Khalsa 

So aside from creating a beautiful presentation of Gurbani what would you do with it? Well, I’m sure there are lots of creative things you can come up with but here are a few ideas.

  • Print and Frame the Hukamnama –  Many of us have memorable occasions (weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc) and maybe on that day you read a very special message from the Guru and wish to keep and remember it. You can print the customized hukam out and put it in a frame for your desk or home. This way whenever you see it you will remember the Guru’s words.
  • Shabad Printout for Gurdwara – Some events or Gurdwaras do not have a way to display Gurbani using a projector. This is one way you can customize and print a particular shabad that people can use to sing and understand the Gurbani.
  • Social Sharing – You may have read a Hukam that is really inspiring and want to share it with your family and friends. After you customize the layout you can click on the "Share this Shabad" button and this will allow you to share the customized hukam that you have created through Email, Facebook, Twitter & other ways.


Next steps which we are working on is making the Daily Hukamnama page on SikhNet customizable so that you can choose the format and layout that you want to view the hukam every day. That way you can view the Guru’s message the way that you like. We might even give new options for different email formats since many of you receive the hukam by email.

I made a short video giving you a quick walk through of the features of the SikhNet Shabad Printer. I suggest that you click on the button to view the video full screen otherwise it might be hard to see the details. Please let me know what you think and be sure to share with your friends and family!
