JollyGul.com has just launched Pir Hasan Kabiruddin’s masterpiece “Anant Akhado” granth (long form of ginan) as an on-demand service. Recitations of verses are accompanied by synchronized verses and translations display on a custom designed audio player.
Anant Akhado literally means a gathering of unlimited souls in an eternal context. It is a well known, much loved and respected composition of 500 verses written by Pir Hasan Kabiruddin.
The verses deal with a comprehensive range of spiritual themes – struggle for liberation of the individual soul, religious practices and the relationship between a Murid and the Murshid.
With the launch of the full 500 verse Anant Akhado service, JollyGul.com has also released 5 podcast episodes to throw more light on the subject and offer present day context. The podcast episodes give an overview of Anant Akhado, present a profile of Pir Hasan Kabiruddin and delve into some of the verses.
Anant Akhado service, a major initiative by JollyGul.com, has been a team effort involving professionals (for technology, user interface development) and voluntary subject matter experts in the Jamat for content creation, development and presentation.
The 500 verse granth is recited by Shafiq Rawji, Shabnam Merali, Aly Sunderji and Almas Murji. The transliterations of the verses are provided by Dr Noorallah Juma and translation into English has been meticulously done by Karim Maherali. Translations are displayed as the verses are recited.
