Common Question

Is it Ik Omkar or Ik Ankaar?

English spelling does not change the meaning. Pronunciation can change the meaning.  Clearly, in the Guru Granth Sahib, in Gurmukhi the word is "Ik Ankaar".  It may be pronounced in various ways depending on dialect or accent.  However, every attempt should be maked to pronounce Gurbani as intended as to not change the meaning or it's context.  If we all learn Gurmukhi, then we would not need a middle person to translate anything for us.  We would hence foster our own connection with Dhur Di Baani, from the source, in it's authentic form.
