Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fathe

Well personally the only think that really worked for me is repeating it everyday out loud. To me reading bani isn't about vibration or anything like that. to me its reading waheguru's words and praises. I love jaap sahib and I personally think that its the easiest one to learn because there is a pattern and its so beautiful and gets stuck in your head. other people find it hard whilst I find it easy and straight forward.

The meaning of the bani are important yes but its is way better to read them in gurmukhi because that is where you understand it properly. reading the english translation is not the same as reciting actual jaap sahib. although it is important to know the definition of the bani it is far more important to recite it with a clear mind and in actual gurmukhi. With time the meanings become clear.

another thing that could work is listening to jaap sahib and reciting it at the same time.

But most of all it takes time. u have to be patient. You won't learn it over night.

Bhul chook muaf karna Ji

if you haven't yet, learn how to read gurmukhi. if you can understand punjabi very well then is the best place to go. this sight is by Bhagat ji also known as Bhai Jaswant Singh ji. he has done santhiya with Gaini Gurbachan Singh Ji Khalsa of Damdami Taksal and has taught people like Bhai jarnail Singh Ji Damdami Taksal. his speech of gurbani is the most correct ones i've ever heard. one the this site you can find all the materials to learn.

Different things work for different people. The primal patterns of Japji Sahib are already in your brain. Learning it by heart is a matter of driving the wagon over the same path each day until the wagon wheels make clear ruts in the path (your brain.) Here's what worked for me: I recited Japji Sahib OUT LOUT every morning six mornings a week and on the seventh morning I recited it out loud in English. That way both the sound current of the Gurbani as well as its meaning became engraved.

when someone's all bonds of maya are broken, he comes to the realisation of GURU(real sadhu, who sangat is called sadh sangat). and Nanak says he (who comes to guru sangat) are then filled with love of guru which is everlasting(never fades away)
