‘A Word A Thought’ (AWAT) is a free, daily email service for its subscribers. It is based on the wisdom sourced from the Guru Granth Sahib. This initiative has been started by Shabad Foundation, a religious and educational organization, registered in India (www.awordathought.com). Our very own Professor Jaswant, respected facilitator at SYA Summer Camps
and esteemed scholar of the Guru Granth Sahib, is one of the editors and advisors for this service.
Their vision is to bring together a thriving community who READ the Scripture, REFLECT on its immense wisdom and SHARE this knowledge with others. They aim to do this through a word a day. It is designed so that it does not overwhelm but is just enough to set us thinking. It provides a little space for spiritual knowledge in this fast paced, technologically driven life of today. The idea is to introduce the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib in a very simple way.
Each email features a word or phrase. This is followed by a thought (a verse) from the Guru Granth Sahib to help put this word in context. The meaning and further explanation follow. There is also help with the Gurmukhi pronunciation and an English translation will be provided for easy understanding.
The subscribers of this service are encouraged to help create an interactive worldwide platform for discussion. We invite you to join us in this spiritual journey of life!
