SAadmin Posted November 14, 2009 Report Share Posted November 14, 2009 I was just contemplating on shabad- Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji writes: Āaḏ gur▫e namah Jugāḏ gur▫e namah Saṯgur▫e namah Srī gurḏev▫e nameh || Based on various tekas, arth of this shabad above are more sakar/sargun. From the context of uthanka arth(as it was believed sri guru arjan dev ji dedicated this shabad to his previous guru maharaj), anyway here are arth given as follows: Aad Gur E Nameh - Guru Nanak Dev Ji Ko Namaskar Jugad Gur E Nameh- Guru Angad Dev Ji Ko Namaskar Satgur E Nameh - Sri Guru Amar Das Ji Ko Namaskar. Sri Gurdev E Nameh - finally my present gurdev- Sri Guru Ram Das Ji Ko Namaskar. Note - Sri indicates one being around maya and controlling the maya. That is clearly sargun upasana, it shows there is no black and white rule in Sikhism, when it comes to meditation. Sargun is equally parvan in our dharam, as surti goes more subtle and subtle towards nirgun, one realizes more deep adhyatamic/spiritual meaning of the same shabad, more towards nirgun upasana. Āaḏ gur▫e namah Jugāḏ gur▫e namah Saṯgur▫e namah Srī gurḏev▫e nameh || I bow to the guiding consciousness that takes us to realisation. I bow to wisdom througout the ages. I bow to True wisdom. I bow to the great unseen Wisdom. enjoy..!! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
