ਕੋਈ ਕਰੈ ਪੂਜਾ ਕੋਈ ਸਿਰੁ ਨਿਵਾਇ ॥੨॥

ਕੋਈ ਪੜੈ ਬੇਦ ਕੋਈ ਕਤੇਬ ॥
ਕੋਈ ਓਢੈ ਨੀਲ ਕੋਈ ਸੁਪੇਦ ॥੩॥

ਕੋਈ ਕਹੈ ਤੁਰਕੁ ਕੋਈ ਕਹੈ ਹਿੰਦੂ ॥

First, Allah1 created Light. All beings are of Creation.
The entire universe was created from One Light—

Sikh Cast Ep57 - “Be-gam-pura’ – City’s name is ‘Sorrow-less-ville” (Sabad of the week)

October 30, 2017

‘Be-gam-pura’ – City’s name is ‘Sorrow-less-ville.’
No pain or anxiety in that place.
No grief, no taxes on commodities.
No fear of error, no fear of loss.  1.

Now I have discovered a great homeland.
O! My brother there is always goodness there.  1. Reflect. 

Sovereignty is always stable.
No second or third, only oneness there.
Always populated and famous.
The contented wealthy dwell there.  2

As they please, so, so, they stroll;
Mansion-knowers, no one blocks their access.
Ravidas, the freed cobbler, says:
One who resides in my town, is my friend.

Bhagat Ravidas ji in Rag Gauri  |  Guru Granth Sahib 345

October 24, 2017

Love with my Beloved developed.  Reflect.

Master-Illusionist tightly secured it such:
Breaking it, cannot be broken,
Releasing it, cannot be released.  1.

Day and night,
You abide within mind,
O! Divine, bestow Your Grace.  2.

I surrender and surrender
To the Dark-complexed Beautiful
Whose story I heard is an indescribable narrative.  3.

Says servant Nanak,

Fortunate are dyed in Red-Love-Color,
Never gets dirty or stained.  1.

Discovered Divine Comfort-Giver, met in love and comfort,
Remains within naturally, cannot be abandoned.  1. Reflect.

Old age and death afflict not, the pain does not reoccur.
Satiated drinking Immortal-Nectar, Guru bestows Immortality.   2.

One who has tasted the invaluable All-Pervasive Nam1 knows
price cannot be stated; what saying can the mouth voice?  3.

O’ Transcendent! Your vision is fruitful, Your Teachings are treasure-virtues.
Nanak adores Your votaries, and asks for their dust.  4.

Sikh Cast Ep54 - “I am nothing, I have nothing, nothing is mine” (Sabad of the week)

October 9, 2017

For king’s daughter, one became the disguiser.
Though lustful and selfish, even his honor was preserved. 1. 

O! World-Guru! What’s Your virtue, if my deed isn’t rescinded?
What’s the use of going to tiger's sanctuary, if the jackal is going to eat you? 1. Reflect.

For one drop of water, rain-bird suffers the pain.
If breath leaves and ocean is obtained, it is of no use. 2 

Being that’s tired, isn’t steady, how to give it solace?
Drowned dead, found boat, tell me, who to board?  3.

I am nothing, I have nothing, nothing is mine.
At this moment, preserve Your servant Sadhna’s honor. 4

Bhagat Sadhna ji in Rag Bilaval  |  Guru Granth Sahib 858

 

ਬਾਣੀ ਸਧਨੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਗੁ ਬਿਲਾਵਲੁ

October 2, 2017

Body, mind and bosom cooled by remembering, remembering, my Owner Divine. 
My being’s beauty, color, comfort, wealth and caste, is the Transcendent. 1.  

Tongue intoxicated with Charmer-Divine’s nectar, 
Colored in Love-Color of my Charmer-Divine,
the Lotus-Feet1 becomes the abundant treasure. Reflect

To whom I belong, protected me, perfect is the Divine’s way.
Nanak: Comfort-Giver united me, All-Pervasive protected the honor.  2.

Rain! O’ Revered Cloud! Delay not even a bit.
Rain! O’ Beloved! Mind-support!
So the bliss occurs, mind remains excited forever.  1.  Reflect. 

O’ My Owner-Divine! I rely on You,
Why forget me from Your mind?
Female like, maiden-slave-like,
No beauty, without Husband-Divine.  1.

When my Ruler-Divine heard plea,
Came immediately, bestowed Grace. 
Nanak says: My wedding-union occurred,
Honor, beauty, good conduct, gifted.  2.

September 18, 2017

I have come to listen and read the Teachings.
Forgetting Nam1, engaging in other greeds, human life wasted. Reflect.

O! My unaware mind! Understand,
become aware of the indescribable narrative told by Truth-Exemplars.

Earn profit: Remember All-Pervasive in the heart,
free yourself from coming-going.

Effort, strength and wisdom are Yours,
when You bestow, then I utter Nam.

Nanak: Devotees are engaged in devotion,
and they are liked by the Divine. 2.

Sikh Cast Ep50 - “Since I invoked Charmer-Divine, nothing comes, nothing goes” (Sabad of the week)

September 11, 2017

Body itself is god, body itself is temple,
Body itself is the wandering pilgrim.
Body is where to offer incense, lamp and eatables,
Body is where to worship with petals.  1. 

Searched numerous realms,
obtained nine treasures in the body.
Since I invoked Charmer-Divine,
nothing comes, nothing goes.  1.  Reflect.

The One in the universe, is in the body,
the one who searches, finds.
Pipa offers: Supreme is the Essence,
revealed by the Eternal-Guru.  2.

Bhagat Pipa ji in Rag Dhanasari  |  Guru Granth Sahib 695

 

ਪੀਪਾ ॥
