About Gurmat Gian Group

gurmat-2

We are the Gurmat Gian Group.

We are comprised of  young Sikh women musicians and our prime purpose is to sing Gurbani.

We share among many things a common last name that is “Kaur”. Kaur if you would know means The Princess and The Lioness. We got this name because we are daughters of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji. Him being the King and the Lead Lion.

Gurmat Gian Group which in itself means somewhat like The Gurbani Philosophical Knowledge Sharing Group. And we wish to share with everyone the Wonder of Gurbani Kirtan.

This Group is conducted by Gurpreet Kaur. She is the main force behind all the compositions and training the other members. Keerat Kaur too has composed many tunes. Members of the group keep changing. Gurpreet Kaur and Keerat  Kaur being permanent singers of the group. At present this group consists of two women singers.

I just do ardas in Guru sahib jis charn for meeting you in person and Guru sahib ji gives you all the success in the world.

    I am short of words to express my wonderful feelings for the commendable job you are doing . I was simly lost while listening the shabads.I pray to Wahegur that this job which HE has entrusted you should continue without any dilution. I think the mode of presentation should remain as it is . I would love to talk to the concearned person and discuss on phone or in peerson.

  10. Harcharan Singh says:

    Dear sisters, Sat Sri Akal,
    Congratulations! Well Done! Tears came into my eyes when I heard your singing in ‘Mohan Khar Avhuh…’
    Hail Bani, our guru, God and his humble Sikhs.
    I have some humble suggestions justt in case:
    1. Try to reach a wider, non Sikh, world wide audience. They don’t know much about Sikhi,, so customise your information to their needs. That way more people will be drawn to the beauty of Sikhi.
    2. Add information on Raag covered, who taught it to your etc, the shabad, the explanation the main idea etc. But do get an expert to explain the meaning in English. Mention the taal too and also have pictures of your whole jatha sitting, the drummers too and how and why you came up with this blog.
    3. Have the shabad in gurmukhi,followed by the Romanised version and than the translation-all these in one set.

    If you like I can help.

    • Gurpreet Kaur says:

      Gur Fath Harcharan Singh Ji
      Thanks for liking the Gurbani Kirtan. We would certainly welcome any help that you can extend. At present we are depending on the SikhiToThe Max for all the English translations for the Shabads. We do feel the need of some different translations.
      Regarding the music compositions, this is done by myself and I train the other members of the group. Some of the Shabads have been composed by Keerat Kaur. We came up with this Blog so as to make the World our Sangat and distribute the Bliss of Gurbani to everyone.

  11. sarjitsinghsandhu says:

    Rev. GURMUKHON
    I trust you all beloveds of SAT GURU NANAK JI
    are deeply enjoying THE INFINITE LEVEL OF BLISS
    OF NAAM.
    While in army service GURU GRANTH SAHIB got pleased with me in the year 1978 , during rainy
    season & HE asked me to ask for a boon . I
    asked for KNOWLEDGE OF ENGLISH to spread the
    POWERS OF LOVE of GURBANI. Though I was blessed
    but I did not know HOW TO GO ABOUT IT in my
    society . The lesson learnt is that learn the art
    of deciphering the difference between GURMUKH &
    MANMUKH . This is an art , one must learn &
    develope so as to avoid the hurdles created by
    MANMUKHS . For details do not hesitate to ask .

    A GURMUKH is one who enjoys the SUPER POWERS of LOVE of CHARAN KAMAL of SATGURU NANAK DEV JI MAHARAJ
    OR GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI MAHARAJ. He carries the
    barometer to see the LEVEL OF BLISS OF NAAM ,
    enjoyed by the GURU KA KIRTANIA ( KHALSA IS ALL
    MALE –NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALE & FEMALE ). Since
    POWER OF SIMRAN OF AMRIT VELA makes all the difference in the impact on the listener’s
    mind/heart/soul.
    GURU GOBIND SINGH JI MASHARAJ is so kind on his
    KHALSA SON (learner) that one can converse with
    him , during AMRIT VELA .
    The trouble is presently KHALSA is ruled by
    ignorant/egoistic/illitrate/duplicate ones & can
    not appreciate the progress of the new upcoming
    beloveds of YOUR LEVEL.
    But one thing is clear that YOUR HAND will always be held by your beloved DAD , i mean,
    GURU GOBIND SINGH JI MAHARAJ.
    Imagine I could not succeed to provide 24 hrs
    power supply to the city of GOLDEN TEMPLE &
    overcome pollution ( Loan from USA CO. of RS eight BILLION for 29 years ) of generators , 10 years ago .

    Khalsa Rule will come but MAHA PURUKHS have
    already forcast that we have to wait for
    2000 years , it will be of rule of LOVE
    of GURU JI . It is then that KHALSA will bless
    the moon ,son of THE SEA , to alter its speed
    & it will be BLUE MOON LIGHT every night . Your
    effort appears to be making a STRONG BEGINNING
    in that direction ,since YOUR BLISS LEVEL is
    higher than that of CHARDI KALA JATHA of
    SAD SIMRAN SINGH KHALSA of MEERI PEERI ACADEMY , AMRITSAR.I hope you know about them .May be BIBI
    INDERJIT KAUR JI, W/O Late HARBHAJAN singh JOGI JI, might
    one day contact you in this regard . I will
    speak to her soon .
    with best wishes

  24. Satnam Singh says:

    Being a singer, composer myself in Hindustani Sangeet, I can say that 3 ladies
    have a melodious and soothing voice specially in the harmony as a group singing in a classical style. Much much better than many professional ragis.
    Really a huge service in the field of Sangeet and Gurbani. Its a great uplift in sprituality for the themselves and for all others. I have been impressed a lot as all the family memebers are involved. ” BAHUT HI BHAGYASHALI PARIVAAR ”
    I wish I could also do this SEVA but being alone myself here in this art there is no possibility. Akaal Purukh may bless this family.

      • Gurpreet Kaur says:

        To download the shabads, there is a link in the Audio player situated under the video player. Some shabads pages also have links for download.

  27. Sarwan Singh says:

    Impossible to describe in words the sense of peace & tranquility one feels while listening to any shabd sung by Gurmat Gyan Group. You really feel transported to another world. God bless all members of this group so that they can create many more shabds.

    • Gurpreet Kaur says:

      Thanks for Enjoying the Bliss of Gurbani. And we feel privileged for being part of the process.
      Thank you Waheguru ji.

  28. kartar singh khalsa says:

    waheguru g ka khalsa waheguru g ki fateh,its very nice to see such large progress from ur group,all i want to ask u that do anyone one or at any age group people can learn kirtan by ur organisation ?coz i want to learn kirtan but only with old instruments not with harmonium,so does anyone knw any institution or individual for this? I m waitin 4 reply, waheguru g ka khalsa waheguru g ki fateh

    • Gurpreet Kaur says:

      Gur Fateh Kartar Singh ji,
      I do take Gurbni Kirtan Classes one a week at Gurmat Gian Missionary College, Jawaddi, where students of all ages learn Kirtan in classical style. For me, learning Gurbani Kirtan needs vocal training and instruments have only a minor secondary role. Learning Singing & learning Instruments are two different things. For those who have interest in doing Kirtan should not wasting their energy in learning a totally new instrument. I feel Its like riding two boats simultaneously. For students of Vocal Music, there is a need to take help of ‘sur’ and that may be from any instrument, be it taanpura, harmonium or any other. And harmonium is the easiest of all. Once a person has mastered his sur for him it become very easy to start on any new instrument anytime.

  29. Pradeep Dhiman says:

    Wahe Guru Ji ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Fateh
    Dear Sisters for you, I can only pray ” Bhalo Bhalo Ray Kiratneaa Ram Rama Rama Gun Gao ”
    Could you Please Please sing this Guru Teg Bahudar Ji shabad on in ur upcoming next CDs.

    Guru Tegh Bahudar Ji ‘s Shabad :
    जो नर दुख में दुख नहिं मानै । सुख सनेह अरु भय नहिं जाके, कंचन माटी जानै ।।
    नहिं निंदा नहिं अस्तुति जाके, लोभ-मोह अभिमाना । हरष शोक तें रहै नियारो, नाहिं मान-अपमाना ।।
    आसा मनसा सकल त्यागि के, जग तें रहै निरासा । काम, क्रोध जेहि परसे नाहीं, तेहि घट ब्रह्म निवासा ।।
    गुरु किरपा जेहि नर पै कीन्हीं, तिन्ह यह जुगुति पिछानी । नानक लीन भयो गोबिंद सों, ज्यों पानी सों पानी ।।

    & Thanks for singing divine gurbani such beautiful way that sangat will cherish lifelong.
    Wahe Guru Ji ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Fateh.

    • Gurpreet Kaur says:

      Many Thanks Pradeep ji for appreciating our Gurbani Keertan. I would keep in mind to add this Shabad in our future projects. This is indeed a beautiful Hukam.
      Do keep visiting this site to enjoy Gurbani Keertan.

  30. Navpreet Singh says:

    devinity splashes out from the gurbani sung by the gurmat gian group… the True Guru is with you… he has bestowed u with his blessings…

    thanx a lot for singing and presenting shabads so beautifully…

    suppose if i have to learn gurbani keertan… whom should i contact… are their any schools for learning kirtan?… plese help me out…

    • Gurpreet Kaur says:

      Thanks for the appreciation.
      To learn Gurbani Kirtan one has to learn music. Ideally one must learn the basics of Indian Classical Music. You’ll have to find someone nearer to your place. I do teach Raag based Gurbani Keertan at Gurmat Gian Missionary College at Ludhiana.
      Do keep visiting as we keep added new shabads frequently.
