Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Guru Ji love is unconditional doesn't depend on what language you can speak/read. What will happen to a person who can't speak or read ?

Gurmukhi is important because Dhan Sri Guru Grant Sahib Ji Mahraj is in Gurmukhi. Gurumukhi was created by Dhan Guru Angad Dev Ji himself, and a Sikh should try their best to learn Gurmukhi. I read Gurbani in romanised, but when it comes to pronunciation it is hard to translate.

Remember Gurmukhi is not just Punjabi it is a mixture of many different languages. Some Shabads are in Prussian for example and it would be hard to translate that into any other language.

If people don't put pressure on learning Gurmukhi/Punjabi then, not many will know it and what happens if someone wants to do an Akhand Path?

Learning Gurmukhi is essential for a Sikh, and when he/she can should try to learn it. Basics of Sikhi have a playlist on learning Gurmukhi.

Check their first video out on Gurmukhi: Why Learn Gurmukhi (Punjabi) ?

If we learn Gurmukhi, then we will benefit from learning it.
