Sikh Cast Ep27 - “Perfect Guru instilled All-Pervasive’s Nam-without Nam life is pointless” (Sabad of the week)

April 9, 2017

When Guru’s hand was placed on my forehead,

All-Pervasive’s jewel-like Nam came to reside in my heart.

Through Guru’s gift of Nam, many life-times

of evilest pain and debt were removed.  1.

 

My mind recites Charmer-Divine’s Nam, the source of all wealth.

Perfect Guru instilled All-Pervasive’s Nam—without Nam life is pointless.  Reflect.

 

Without Guru, the self-centered are foolish,

Every day remain trapped in illusion.

Never serving at the feet of Goodness,

Entire lives become worthless.  2. 

 

Those serving at the feet-base of Goodness-Guru

become Master’s own and lives become fruitful.

O Master of the Universe, All-Pervasive, grace me

to be the votary of the votary of Your votaries.  3.

 

We are blind, wisdom-less, unwise… How can we walk the Path?

O Guru, grant us the blind ones, Your hem so commoner Nanak

may walk in harmony.  4.
