Sikh Cast Ep20 - “Guru hasn’t held it back from the mind” (Sabad of the week)

February 20, 2017

Sabad is our loving immortal-stream,
Guru hasn’t held it back from the mind—
Not even for an instant, O! People. 1. Reflect.

Sabad colors in Creator’s Color,
Envisions, touches, blossoms and delights, O! People. 1.

Nanak on Sabad:
Moment’s remembrance reaches the Guru,
Every breath lifts the fear,
String a garland of All-Pervasive around the neck,
and cherish it in the heart, O! People. 2.

 

ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥
ਹਮਾਰੀ ਪਿਆਰੀ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਧਾਰੀ ਗੁਰਿ ਨਿਮਖ ਨ ਮਨ ਤੇ ਟਾਰੀ ਰੇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ਦਰਸਨ ਪਰਸਨ ਸਰਸਨ ਹਰਸਨ ਰੰਗਿ ਰੰਗੀ ਕਰਤਾਰੀ ਰੇ ॥੧॥
ਖਿਨੁ ਰਮ ਗੁਰ ਗਮ ਹਰਿ ਦਮ ਨਹ ਜਮ ਹਰਿ ਕੰਠਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਉਰਿ ਹਾਰੀ ਰੇ ॥੨॥੫॥੧੩੪॥

Guru Arjan Sahib in Asa Rag, | Guru Granth Sahib 404


Sabad is Infinite; we are very finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow, as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this trans-creation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute as used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
