Sikh Cast Ep28 - “That Husband-Beloved’s Love” (Sabad of the week)

April 19, 2017

That Husband-Beloved’s Love. 1. Reflect.
Gold, jewels, elephant-size pearls, rubies—no, nope, none.  1.

No empire, opulence, power or indulgence;
Craved not even a tiny bit.  2.

In True congregation’s humble sanctuary and devotion
The comfort of comforts is obtained.

Nanak: Burning vanishes upon
Experiencing Husband-Beloved’s Love.  3.

Guru Arjan Sahib in Asa Rag  | Guru Granth Sahib 406

ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ਤਿਪਦੇ ॥
ਓਹਾ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਪਿਰੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥   
ਕਨਿਕ ਮਾਣਿਕ ਗਜ ਮੋਤੀਅਨ ਲਾਲਨ ਨਹ ਨਾਹ ਨਹੀ ॥੧॥
ਰਾਜ ਨ ਭਾਗ ਨ ਹੁਕਮ ਨ ਸਾਦਨ ॥
ਕਿਛੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਨ ਚਾਹੀ ॥੨॥
ਚਰਨਨ ਸਰਨਨ ਸੰਤਨ ਬੰਦਨ ॥
ਸੁਖੋ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਹੀ ॥
ਨਾਨਕ ਤਪਤਿ ਹਰੀ ॥
ਮਿਲੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਪਿਰੀ ॥੩॥੩॥੧੪੩॥

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.
