Beginning Gurmukhi – Tuesday Afternoons (EST)
February 21, 2017 - April 4, 2017$155
Gurmukhi is the script and language of the sacred writings of the Sikhs. Learning to read Gurmukhi is a wonderful way to engage with the wisdom of Japji Sahib and with the mantras we use in Kundalini Yoga. Reading Gurmukhi gives us the most direct route to the sound current which the Gurus spoke bypassing the various pitfalls of transliteration (the phonetic depiction of the sounds in Roman letters).
In this beginning course in reading the Gurmukhi script you will be reading simple words after the first week. By the end of the class you will be ready to start reading Japji although very slowly.
Siri Sevak Kaur has been teaching Gurmukhi and Gurbani and gathering learning materials for many years. She teaches with humor and kindness and has a wealth of background information. Classes are recorded for your convenience.
There are two different class times you can choose from.
1:30-3:00 pm (EST): February, 21, 28 and March 1, 8, 14, 21, 28 and April 4
7:00-8:30 pm (EST): February 22 and March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 and April 5
