Hukamnama from ANG : 586 to 587 Saturday 27/01/2007

Translation by Bhai Manmohan Singh

Katha of hukamnama translated http://sgpc.net/katha/katha070702.rm

Bhul Chuk maaf karni

shalok is the name of a Chaand (section of verses), it is mostly found in vedas and upanishads in the form of dohas, but in

Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, it is found in the form of 2, 4, 6, 10 lines any number of lines as Guru ji wish

In Guru Granth Sahib ji, Shalok is gurbani, that when absorbed, contemplated takes one to sachkhand.

Guru ji is giving inspiration to 10 crore sadhus, who at that time used to beg from ppl, Guru ji is saying that obtaining worldy goods

your desire and hunger will not depart. Dressed as a beggar, your hunger will not depart.

They are having the pain of hunger in their stomach, and this makes them wander from house to house, for the satisfaction of their hunger they are wandering. In the world after, they will punished two times more with the pain, because you are a sadhu an ascetic, and you are wandering for food. Meaning being a sadhu, does not mean you have to beg. Now in the next line Guru ji will advise the sadhu.

meaning of word doone - do guni , two times.

Sehj is the fourth state, whatever happens is happening, but you are unconcerned, this is the state of sehj.

Guru ji is telling about the Sadhu, you are asking from ppl and eating the food, and saying that you are getting everything from the sehj within. Guru ji is Implying to the Sadhu, you have not attained the Sehj. From whomever you are begging for food, you are asking with a stubborn mind forcefully asking for food, Guru ji is saying you are causing pain to the Giver as well. In this way you will suffer two times in the court of the Lord. Guru ji has thus given this knowledge to the Sadhu, that why dress as beggar and beg from door to door. Live the life of a householder that is better, from that house of householder noone goes empty handed. Thus Guru ji is telling the Sadhu, be a householder. Satguru Amardas ji is saying, those who are imbued with this knowledge, that whatever God gives you, it is better to be content and happy with that. Those people who are without the Guru do not have this knowledge and they are wandering and wandering in doubt asking for more and more. Whatever actions you are doing, according to that, you will receive punishment or reward in the Lord's court, this is your karma, and in that court you will not be able to say anything. As you sow, so shall you reap. Sri Guru Amardas ji Maharaj is saying those are pleasing to the Lord, they alone are good humble. Timeless God, preserves their honour in this world and the next.

Dhan Guru Amar Das ji

Dhan Guru Amar Das ji

Dhan Guru Amar Das ji

mehlaa 3.

Dhan Guru Amar Das ji is now reciting another Shalok

If we want eternal peace then we should serve the True Guru, we should read gurbani, we should meet the True Guru, The pains of birth and death will go. Without the Guru, this anxiety and worry will not depart. Meeting Guru, your life will become worry free, God and his name will come to reside in your mind and your worries and anxiety will depart. There are crores of pilgrimages outside, but there is one pilgrimage inside and that is the pilgrimage of Wisdom, Satguru Amardas has given this understanding, has shown me. Mind has been freed from filth, bathing at amrit sar, the pilgrimage of God's name. the perfect people meet together and they do abhiyaas of Guru's shabad. They do not need to renounce or leave the world, remaining in their own houses, they have imbued themselves with God's name.They have merged the light of their soul, with God's light. The messenger of death will not accept hypocrites, he will take away your honour and drive you away. Satguru Amardas ji is saying, O Nanak those who are imbued with love for name are saved from pains, suffereing, death.

Pauri is the name of a Chaand, in which usually, praises of Brave warriors are sung.

Go and sit where people are earning Lord's name. Remember thou the God's Name with composure, that thou mayest not lose God, the Essence. Day and night repeat ever repeats God's Name, that thou myest find protection in God's court. He alone finds the Perfect True Guru, on whose forehead such a pre-ordained destiny is written. Let everyone forever bow in worship to Satguru Amardas, who utters the sermon of the Lord.

Some other things mentioned during the katha

Many new styles of doing kirtan are coming into being, but they are not following the maryada that is being followed at Sri Amritsar Sahib.

Blessed is Baba Shyam Singh ji who started the kar seva, and also was blessed with the true maryada of doing kirtan. Particular Ragas are recited at particular times of day.

Then another fact of history about a muslim colonel, who said he visited both mecca and Sri Amritsar Sahib, and when he was asked about how he felt about Sri Amritsar Sahib, he said, I have known mecca to be house of God, but if someone asks me where is house of God, he would say it to be Sri Amritsar Sahib.

Hukamnama of Sunday 28th/01/2007

Below is the Translated Katha of this hukamnama from Sri Darbar Sahib Sri Amritsar, Forgive any mistakes, In my own words

In this hukamnama, Bhagat Namdev is giving various examples throughout history of how people build lofty mansions to support their egos, but none of this goes along with them. People's make palaces of their Ego, based on their hopes of a very long life. Ego is present in very subtle states. The powerful people display their ego's by oppressing the poor.

Guru Gobind Singh ji wanted to show Bhai Nand Lal Singh, the presence of the ego even in subtle stages. Bhai Nand Lal Singh ji, before starting any task or work, he would goto have darshan of Guru Gobind Singh ji. One day, Bhai Nand Lal ji had to do some work, he went to do darshan of Guru Gobind Singh ji. He went to see Guru ji, and came in front of Guru ji's door, and started knocking on his door.

He said, "Iam Nand Lal, I wanted to go do some work, so i want to do your darshan first." Guru ji told him that the "he" who wanted to do darshan is the subtle ego. Nand Lal ji understood this. Next time, Nand Lal ji said, "This is your humble servant Nand Lal, who wants to do your darshan". Again, Guru ji said, the ego is not yet finished. Ego, is thinking its humble and and has pride about it, that Iam humble.

Now, Nand Lal ji had lot of Vaairag, love, detachment, he started crying in front of Guru ji's door. He didnt know what to do. Guru asked, who is crying there in front of the door. Now, Nand Lal ji said, i don't know who it is Guru ji, someone who want your darshan.

Now Kathakar, is giving example of the music video on TV, Bulla Ke Jana mai kaun, What does Bulla know who he is? Now, this is the State of Bhai Nand Lal ji.

Guru ji opened the door, and hugged Bhai Nand Lal Ji close to his embrace, and told him about this ego, he explained him what the subtle ego is, through this lesson.

Bhagat Namdev ji, in this hukamnama is telling about the presence of this ego/haumai.

Kathakar is giving example, of how Bhagat Namdev ji to Trilochan ji to do work with your hands and feet, but keep God in your mind, and remember raam naam. God asks for service filled with prem love.

This words of devotees, Guru's bani is true for all time, the listeners, readers of this, should understand it and implement in thier life.

This world is a dream, nothing will remain, this is the advice, not to be attached to wealth, possesions, people or belongings, all this will vanish one day, Not to do Actions in ego.

Dhanaasaree is the Raag of this shabad of Bhagat Naam Dayv jee.

God is one, Is consciousness-bliss-truth,sat chit ananda, known by the grace of the True Guru.

Namdev ji is saying, they have build very lofty palaces and are thinking of a very long life.

Having high hopes of a very long life, you have build these palaces of ego.

come o mortal engrossed in ego and the chains of hopes, let me explain you.]

Maarkanda Saint had a very long life, Kathakar is saying of 1000 years, Do you know how he spent his life? He used to keep a handful of straw upon his head. He spent his entire life like this. From this, we understand, that Markanda had a very long life, so what should we do then?

We have only our Creator Lord as only beloved Friend, only love that Creator Lord.

O mortal, why are you engrossed in pride of your body, it will be reduced to ashes instantly. It will only take less time, and its name and form will be destroyed. Never again it will take life again.

Sometime read history and learn about the Kaurvas, who used to say everything is theirs, they are the most powerful, and their egoistic brother had so much influence.

Their royal procession with smaller kings under canopy shades of sixty miles were under the command of duryodhona, but in the end their bodies were eaten by vultures, dogs, meat eating animals. Noone performed their cremation services, nor could it be done, as their entire families were destroyed.

Sri Lanka was an empire with mighty army and very wealthy empire. Raavan, the king had 100,000 sons, huge families. The whole empire was made of Gold. has anyone there been more powerful then him?

Raavan was engrossed in ego, he was also well versed in the Vedas. What happened to his mighty army? It was destroyed by an army of monkeys. What happened to the elephants that was tethered at his door? All in an instant belonged to someone else.

Understand o Mortal, Nothing belongs to anyone in this world, Understand this and absorb within your mind.

The entire family of Krishna was destroyed, Krishna then went to forest and became sad, an hunter hit an arrow by mistake, it hit Krishna and also died.

On the opposite Side, one can look at the life of Guru Gobind Singh ji, even after sacrificing the entire family, Guru ji in forest was in high spirits, and wrote the shabad, mittr pyaray nu haal mureeda da kahna.

The Lord has shown mercy to His humble servant, and now Naam Dayv sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||4||1||

Showing your mercy, Lord, Namdev your humble servant sings your praises.

Translation of Katha from Sri Amritsar Sahib ji.

This shabad is on Ang 727, this is one of the two shabads coming on this ang.

The Second beautiful shabad is "Khoob teri pagree, mithay teray bol" Beautiful is your turban, sweet your words.

Those who speak sweet words, these can be the qualities of Guru, God.

Everyone loves God, because God is and speaks sweet.

Kathakaar is now telling an story from the life of Namdev, and explaining this second shabd.

Namdev and his wife, after cleaning clothes in the river, got tired carrying the clothes back. Namdev thought of this of his Lord, O lord, we do not ask for wealth, please give one horse, so we can carry our clothes back. It is recorded in history, that namdev was blessed with many darshans of God, in various kautaks of God. It was the time of Moghul's rule, and many people feared them because they were opressors.

At that time, one Moghul horse rider called out on Namdev, and asked "who are you?"

Namdev said, " Iam Namdev, people call me naama"

Rider asked " What do you do? "

Namdev said, "I wash peoples clothes, this is my honest living"

Rider said " I dont know(care) about your work, Look at this, my horse has given this baby horse, Pick this up, and carry on your shoulders and bring it to my home"

Bhagat Namdev being afraid of the moghul, picked up the horse and started walking.

Namdev asked, Moghul Sahib, how long is this journey? Im old man, I will get tired and this baby horse pony can fall and it will get hurt.

Rider Said "The journey is very long, but you will have to keep going, It is very difficult to reach there, But I will take you go there"

Then as they talked more sweetly like this, namdev ji understood the mystery of this drama of Lord and said

"halay yaaraaN halay yaaraaN khusikhabree"

amazing friend amazing friend, you have said very beautiful news.

"bal bal jaaN-o ha-o bal bal jaaN-o."

I am a sacrifice, a devoted sacrifice, a dedicated and devoted sacrifice, to You.

You are playing such games with me, O Lord, Im a sacrifice to you, a sacrifice.

Then Lord started smiling little at namdev.

Namdev ji said "O Lord, you have given me a beautiful forced labour"

Lord asked "what about it Namdev?"

Namdev ji said

"neekee tayree bigaaree aalay tayraa naa-o. ||1|| rahaa-o. "

Forced labour to You is so beautiful, O Lord, before I was upset a little, but your service is very exalted O Lord,

Your Name is great and exalted.

"kujaa aamad kujaa raftee kujaa may ravee. "

Now, O Lord, You have adorned this form of a moghul, tell me this, from where have you come, Where have you been, and where are you going?

Lord is saying then,

"davaarikaa nagree raas bugo-ee. ||1|| "

davaar - doors, place

davarikaa is also name of a place in which Krishna used to reign.

"O Namdev, this body village, with the dwars I come through and go through this, this is my home"

Now Namdev is saying

"khoob tayree pagree meethay tayray bol."

Beautiful is your turban! And so sweet is your speech.

aspat gajpat narah narind.

You are the Lord of the sun, Lord of the elephants, Lord of people, Lord of gods and goddesses, the King of all.

naamay kay savaamee meer mukand. ||4||2||3||

You are also the Lord and Master of Naam Dayv, You are the King, the Liberator of all. ||4||2||3||

Such a wonderful game you are playing with me O Lord.

The Lord then saying, O Namdev, what are you asking for a lowly thing as a horse, I have given you my name, one who has the name, what else could he desire, naama.

In Today's Hukamnama, Namdev ji is doing the greatness of Naam in the shabad below.

Kathakar is now doing the Katha of the hukamnama, the first part of the above shabad on ang 727

Khundkaaraa - Three meanings below

Baadshaah(worldy ruler),

Paatshaah(God, Lord of all Universe, the keeper of everyone's honor),

support or anchor

O Lord Iam blind, and your name is my support. O Paatshaah, you are my support. You keep everyone's honor. You are our true king. Please do mercy on me.

Namdev, when he went to a temple, the Brahmins called him sudra low caste, and beat him out of the temple. When Namdev sat at the backside as he started reciting the chant of Lord's name, so and so the face of the temple started turning towards Namdev. The Lord turned his back toward the egoists and embraced namdev.If anyone goes there to see that temple, still the fool Brahmins, have not let Namdev enter the temple, they have kept the idol of Namdev outside. And when asked why it is outside, they said he is sudra, low caste.

maskeen - two meanings

one who remains silent,

one who is humble.

Im poor lowly meek, I have no support but your name. The protector of the poor is only you Lord. Guru Nanak Sahib ji went to the house of Poor Bhai Lalo, but did not goto the house of Malik Bhago. But Today's Preachers they normally goto the house of rich people. Rare one asks the poor these days.O Lord you are merciful, you are gracious, you see the poor and bless him with kindness. You are generous and fullfiller of desires of people.

haajraa - famous

hajoor - world

dar - outside and inside

pays - front ( back )

toon maneen - all world believes in you.

You are famous in the world, outside inside, front back you are present, whole world believes worships you.You are the forgiver of sinners, river of life, giver of all gifts, you are the highest Lord. You gave eyes, ears, hands and feets, tongue to recite your naam. Can anyone give this ? Only you O Lord can give this to us. You are the Wealthiest, Your treasures are exhaustless, people get tired of receiving your gifts, such a great giver you are. You are the greatest donor. There is noone like you, O Lord.

What can I say to praise you O Lord,Your praises are infinite, My wisdom is so small, How can I think about your greatness O Beloved Lord. So many are singing your praises O Lord, there are so very very many, How can I think of them all? There are countless ones praising you, O Lord. You are the knower of all our thoughts and You are the wisest of the wise. How can I think of your virtues O Lord, your Virtues have no end.You are presiding over countless thrones O Lord, How can I think of your greatness, Your treasures are filled with countless gems and jewels, How am I to think of your Treasures? As I understand you O lord, so do I say, you are naamay's merciful Lord. Bless me with your mercy.

Satguru has done a great blessing on us and given us this hukamnama updesh.

Jan 31st, Todays(Yesterday's) hukamnama in Raga Sorath, (melody sung during the night)

Gurbani of Bhagat Bheekan jee.

We mortals are filled with diseases of body, mind and social illnesses.If we look at the lives of Satgurus, then we will find many examples where Satguru ji has rid us of our diseases of body, mind like kaam, krodh, ahaankaar and of society like caste system, male/female bias, sati etc. Our doctors, if we go to treatment to them, instead of curing our diseases, we find that sometimes our disease has increased even more. same way, many "doctors" or fake preachers who have stolen the gurbani of our Gurus and started their own fame and looting people. If we goto them, our diseases will increase more. These fake preachers have just memorised some lines of gurbani, and started a following. Like many doctors in rural villages, who have only knowledge of very few medicines and call themselves "know-all".

One day Guru Nanak Dev ji, became very quiet and his parents thought, his son who used to say so sweet sweet words is all quiet, we should call a physican. But what can a physcian know the rog(disease) of the Guru ?

Feeling the pulse and the forehead, the physican couldnt find any illness, and looking at Guru ji said,that Guru ji is himself the World physican.

Just as we go for treatment of a specific organ to a specific doctor, like for ears, we goto ears specialist.

In the same way, Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji is the specialist of all. Bhai Gurdaas ji in connection to this, has said that Guru ji is the physican of all three worlds, of all bodily diseases, illnesses of minds and society.

Guru's Sikh who wants a cure, sits in the presence of Guru Granth Sahib ji's Gurbani, asks Guru ji for the medicine for his disease. Then how does Guru ji rid his sikh of disease? it is through Guru ji's ambrosial glance of mercy that we are cured.

Then our biggest disease that is of the birth and death, this is cured first by Guru ji. Guru ji takes this pain away.

In Sukhmani Sahib, the very first line stating the rog that goes away, through rememberance of God, is of Birth and death.

prabh kai simran garabh na basai.

First that disease is gone, then like a specialist doctor who can tell which disease, the person got, checking pulse or after looking at face.

Same way, Guru ji also knows which disease we got, by just looking at face.

Guru Gobind Singh ji noticed Bahadur Shah's eyes becoming filthy, looking over the young daughter of Jawahar Singh. Guru Gobind Singh ji, gave a coin to one of his soldier and said bring some "sauda" from the market. The Soldier came back and said, Guru ji, this coin is counterfiet, even though there is kalma (muslim prayer) written over it.

Then Guru Gobind Singh ji, showed that Bahadur Shah, even though he read the kalma and recited prayers, and sitting in presence of Guru ji, his heart was counterfiet as still was affected by Kaam, Guru ji with his kirpa drishti (ambrosial glance of mercy) then cured him of his disease of kaam and put him on the straight correct path.

In this way, Guru ji first cures us of cycle of birth and death, through amrit drishti (ambrosial glance of mercy). Then he cures us of our diseases kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahaankaar through his kirpa.

We as sikhs should do our best to seek guidance by sitting in the presence of Guru ji and absorbing his advice within.

Guru ji has given us beautiful hukamnama, let us absorb this hukamnama within us and make our lives successful

with one pointed concentration of mind and body, let us focus on Guru ji's updesh

Satnaam Sri Vahiguroo

Satnaam Sri Vahiguroo

In Sorath Raag, Bhagat Bheekan ji, born in Lucknow is giving us this pure holy bani. In history it is written,

Bhagat Bheekan ji first was born in a muslim family, done sangat of Vairagi Sadhus.

But from the two shabads of Bhagat ji, found in Guru Granth Sahib ji, we do not find any muslim words in them.

There are no islamic words. Nor in the shabads are any inferences to say that Bhagat ji left his family

and became vairagi.

In olden times, there used to be stages of human life activity, dependent on the age.

Brahmachari (Celibate - gather knowledge) Till age 25

grisht (householder) Age 25- 50

van vast (forest dweller) till 70

sanyassi (renunciate)

Usually God was remembered in the forset dweller stage.

But Guru ji has said, who can know when we will leave this world. who knows if we will live till so many years. We are depended on our dam , ( we are called aadami, meaning if the dams( " breaths") aa(come), we are aadami. Otherwise we die.)

We should not think that we will start to jap naam after age 50 and also not be lazy to do it.

Guru ji is saying, we can do all things even while being a householder. Preaching, renunciate, simer naam can only be done while we live as a householder. We should not wait while we are old, that we will start to simer naam.

Bhai Gurdas ji, in this connection is saying,

Like Just when a house has caught fire, it is not possible for us to dig a well,

and pour water from it onto the burning fire. Its too late to do that.

Bhai Gurdas ji, giving another example,

like when an enemy is attacking your house, then it is too late to learn gatka,

how to fight with the sword, or to learn to use gun or weapon.

It is not possible to fight the enemy then.

For example,

it is not possible for a traveller who fell asleep for the entire night,

to catch upto his fellow travellers who have already left during the night for the journey ahead.

It is not possible for us to live our life in worldly affairs of maya,

and get entangled in them, and then at the last moment remember raam.

If we spend our life in sleep, in worthless affairs,

It is too late to remember raam at the last moment.

If one will spend his entire life in the affairs of maya, and say in old age I will do simran of parmatma.

Bhagat Bheekan ji is saying at that time your body will become very weak, without energy,

and your hair that is black now will become white like milk. Tell me then how will you remember parmatma (God) then?,

then when you can't even read or see with your eyes clearly. Your body having become so very weak then, how will you

then be able to wake up at amrit vela from your bed?

In your young age you might have travelled very far on your small small legs, but when you will be old, even a jar of water

that is lying nearby, will feel to you like lying several miles away? how will you remember God then?

So, O beloveds of the Guru, Satguru ji is telling us this, that in old age, tears(water) will flow from your eyes,

weak will be your body, your kes (hair) will be milk white.

So now we saying that in old age we will do simran? Even the government gives us retirement around 60 years, considering us not useful to do work, and send us home. When we will not be of any use to work, not of any use to your family, not of any use to anyone, then how can you be useful or apply yourself to simran?

Even then, Dont worry, Satguru ji is saying keep hope to those who are already old, there are examples of ppl who brought their life to the correct path in thier old age. This is for hope to those who are already old.

They have focussed their consciousness on the Lord and become gurmukh.

But this hukam updesh is for those, who are saying that at the time of old age, they will do simran.

Satguru ji though is strengthing this point to those who are young, and are not confined to living in beds, and have healthy bodies.

They are guiding us through this description of Bhagat Bheekan ji.

At that time, your throat will not be able to speak as well. You will want to say something, but some other word will come out. When you won't even be able to speak in the correct way, then how will you do recite the shabad? O soul, what will you do then??

O soul, then you will have to go into different life forms after death? What to do then, O soul?

When we become old, we lose our voices, we want to say something and something else comes out.

quoting Bhagat Kabeer ji

"That you have to do tommorrow, Do it today, that you have to do today, do it now"

O my beloved Lord, O my Beloved Raam, If you become my doctor curing my disease,

O Satguru ji you are my perfect complete Physician.

When you see someone who is ahaankari(egoistic),

seeing someone who is lobi (greedy),

seeing someone who is kaami (desire/lust)

seeing someone who has krodh(anger) in his heart

O Satguru ji, when you see someone who is attached(moh) to family.

Satguru ji, with your ambrosial glance all these 5 diseases are cured.

Satguru ji (says), jo jo disai, so so rogi

whoever is seen, that one is diseased.

rog rahat mera Satguru Jogi

mera Satguru jogi is without these diseases(rog)

Bhagat Bheekan ji is saying, O Paramatma, you cure your devotees.

For example, Guru Gobind Singh ji, saved Bhai Joga Singh when he noticed he became kaami, he cured him of his kaam.

Guru ji disguised himself as a mace-bearer and started guarding the house of the prostitute to save his devotee from hell.

Joga Singh tried to enter the house four times during the night but had to turn back as he ran into the mace-bearer every time.

He set out for Anandpur. He sought forgiveness for his folly when reached the court of the Guru.

another instance when Guru ji noticed his sikh becoming lobhi, he gave this updesh.

hak praya Naanka us sooar us gai

Do not keep your eyes on others rights property wealth, its like eating pork by a Muslim and a cow by a hindu.

Another instance, when Chandan Kavi, who became egoistic about his poems.

Guru ji asked Bhai Dhanna to do the vaikhya of meanings of his poem, which destroyed the ego of Chandan Kavi.

Another instance, is in the life of Sri Guru Harkishan Sahib ji, when Guru ji enlightend a moorakh to do the

vaikhya of gita.

Bhagat Bheekan ji, is saying, gurmukh pyaria, you are proud of your 5 senses of eyes, sound,.. These five will become weak

in old age. Water will flow from your eyes, body weak, pains and aches will start, throat will become tight, aches of the heart,

When your body will start to feel like burning? then how will you remember the Lord?

Kathakar is saying, There is another thing though to be noted here, Those who have obtained the Lord in thier young life, when they become

old, they will not expereince these diseases in old age.

If one looks at the life of Baba Deep Singh ji, at the age of 80 years, they had very sharp eyesight, was a warrior full of

strength in old age.

One can also look at the Life of Guru Amardas Ji, who did seva of carrying water for Guru Angad ji for so very many years every single day.

whether storm or nice breezy. Nothing stops a gursikh from doing seva of his Satguru ji.

They had strength, The reason for this is that they did simran of Parmatma.

Bhagat Bheekan ji is trying to make us understand, that there is so much pain in old age, that only one who is old knows of it.

and that we wont be able to remember our parmatma then. We should remember Parmatma now, while we are still young.

har kaa naam amrit jal nirmal ih a-ukhaDh jag saaraa.

If you enshrine the har kaa naam in your heart, then you will be cured of all diseases

There is no other cure.

Kathakar is now giving example of some ppl in peshawar, who declared that there is new sarovar originated here,

whoever takes bath here, they will be cured of all diseases. They even put a pricey ticket on it to get entry.

But those who took bath there, nothing was cured.

Another example in Himachal Pradesh, they said, there is a warm spring discovered here,

saying that whoever drinks this water, will be cured. But noone was cured of anything.

Even after drinking drums of water filled with it.

Satguru ji is saying drinking water, diseases are dispelled, but that water is the ambrosial name of God.

Dukh Bhanjan tera Naam

Pain Disease Sorrow destroyer is your Name, O Lord.

Satguru ji has given us this updesh in so very many places, that the name of God is the dispeller of all Diseases.

Satguru ji is saying, Remember the name of God, sprinkle it on you and your family, and protect it.

Nanak Dukhia Sabh sansar.

Satguru ji is saying everyone is diseased, you can share/talk about your diseases with others, but they themselves are diseased, it can happen also that their disease you may catch. Only the naam is curer of all diseases.

Satguru ji please do kirpa on us, and bless us with your naam.

Translation of Katha.

Today's hukamnama is Kirpa of Satguru ji on us. On that mortal, upon whom the Lord has become kind, that mortal recieves the

updesh(true advice) from Satguru ji.

that blessed person who becomes eager to listen to the words of Satguru ji, to that person words of the Guru seems very sweet.

In the rahaa-o pankti(line) of today's hukamnama,

at sundar, manmohan piaaray sabhoo maDh niraaray ||1|| rahaa-o

Nothing else matters for that person, to whom the Guru's words are nectar sweet. Nothing affects that person. That person

renounces his haumai(ego), and devotes own life lovingly to Guru ji.

Fools became Wise, Wicked became Virtous through hukam of Satguru ji.

In Today's hukamnama, Satguru ji has told us that words of our Lovable Husband God, are the very form of amrit nectar.

a(Not) + mrit(Death) = Without Death, Eternal

Many Many places, Satguru ji has told us that the words of our Lord are amrit and yes those who absorb the words of the Lord in their

heart also become amrit. Bodily death has come to one and all, Vahiguroo ji has said that everyone has their turn, everyone will be separated.

Kabeer ji is saying

I shall not die as the rest of the world dies, for now I have met the life-giving Lord. ||1||Pause||

this meaning that kabir ji has absorbed the words of the Lord in his heart, and has been united with the Lord.

Kabir ji and the undying Lord are one and the same and forever alive.

raaj na chaaha-o mukat na chaaha-o man pareet charan kamlaaray.

Satguru ji is saying, that neither the pleasure of ruling kingdoms , pleasures of maya, nor the pleasure of mukat(liberation) are sweet

only beholding , having the sight of the Lord is sweet. All other tastes and pleasures are not comparable at all.

Only the name of the Lord is sweet, rest all worldy goods are compared tasteless.

these are sweet sweet words from Guru ji to those who do simran

guru ji has also said words to those who don't simran.

for example, Guru ji has said to those who don't do simran, their noses will be cut. Those who love maya, are said as dumb, blind.

and those who follow the advise of their own minds, they have been called manmukh.

These words may seem harsh sour words, but in reality this words are also amrit roop. If we listen to those words, and follow the advice

and abstain from the corrupted activities, then we will find these words are amrit roop for us.

When our body becomes weak, we goto doctor, the doctors sees some deficiences in us, and gives us medicine, when we eat that sour medicine, we become well.

In the same way, when we goto Guru ji, Guru ji will see our deficiences, we will find Guru ji saying sour words to us, but when we apply the advice of the sour words on our lives, we will really find that those words of Guru ji are amrit roop and is our true medicine.

For example,

Kauda Rakshash, when he listened to the words of Guru Nanak Dev ji, the words were sour to him, but when he applied those words, it became amrit roop to him.

Lord does not how to speak sour words, all words of Lord are amrit roop.

This way all of gurbani is amrit roop, absorbing within we become also amrit roop.

Satguru ji is giving us advice in hukamnama, that O lovable, look within your heart, and see what deficienies you have and get its cure in gurbani.

let us all absorb the hukamnama from Guru ji

Vaahiguroo Jee Kaa Khalsa, Vaahiguroo Jee Kee Fateh

In Raag dayvganDhaaree , Dhan Dhan Guru Arjan Sahib ji is giving us this updesh.

amritaa pari-a bachan tuhaaray.

In a shabad, in Raag Sarang, Guru ji has said, O Lord, the worldly songs and thier dances, let them not enter my ears, Lord, Now only

your shabad Im in love with, It is amrit ambsorial nectar form for me. Vahiguroo Vahiguroo Vaahiguroo

No doubt there is lot of corruption , filth to see in this world, but Satguru ji has adviced us to not see this gand mand(corruption) with our eyes, nor do we hear all this corruption.

When we start friendship with someone, we start first with sweet words. For so many so many years we have been friends, but when we speak one two sour words, our friendship comes to end of so very many many years.

This way, Satguru ji is giving us updesh, that this sweet sweet bani, gives true peace sukh to all. Satguru ji is saying, as you walk on this path also speak sweet sweet words to one and all. When a Crow speaks, noone likes that voice, But when a cuckoo (Koel) sings, everyone gets bliss. Satguru ji is saying, speak sweet sweet words to all, and make your life like the koel. Don't live a corrupt life like the crow.

Now Kathakar is giving an example of a story from the life of Guru ji, Guru ji heard one baby crow saying Ka Ka "alot" from the crow nest in the tree, Guru ji got one Singh to get that crow down to him. Guru ji twisted the neck of that baby crow. Guru's Singh ji, asked Guru Gobind Singh ji, O Guru ji we have come from so very far to hunt, just to hunt for this small baby crow? What is the reason for this Sachay Patshaah?

Guru ji said that this baby crow used to be in our sangat, but used to speak very (Korha) sour words, whenever anyone used to ask for pani, parsaada, or dal in langar, he used to speak very sour words, then one day a gursikh, told him "What Ka Ka your doing all the time, remaining in the Guru's Sangat, you havent learnt anything". For this reason, he was born as a crow. Now (Guru ji) have liberated him from this Crow joon(incarnation)

at sundar manmohan pi-aaray sabhhoo maDh niraaray. ||1|| rahaa-o.

at meaning,

beant, without any limit

Manmohan meaning,

man (mind) mohan (enticer).

madH - in, within

Parmatma is infinitely beautiful, the enticer of the mind and whatever the Creator has made is also very beautiful.

In Todays Hukamnama we have been given a very valuable lesson.

What is considered Beautiful? and what is considered not?

Kathakar is saying, Let us ask Guru Granth Sahib ji on this. Satguru ji is saying is those who follow their minds they are karoop. Even in their sleep and dreams they are not in peace.

ka - as prefix, gives a negative effect, bad, not good.

sa - good, beauty

roop - form

Maha - Great

MahaKaroop they are, forever in sorrow they are, who are these?

Those who do various types of gossip, saying wrong things about others, making others feel bad, those who have filthy eyes.

Satguru ji is saying to believe this, one who has a good beautiful body, even has very fair skin, but Satguru ji is saying

if that person doesn't do simran, then consider that person as MahaKaroop, with cut body parts. Its like considered as

as the child of a prositute, even if that person wears good clothes, good body, still everyone gives no respect, because its child of

prositute.

Satguru ji is saying those who do simran, even if their bodies have got so very many deformites, consider them as the most beautiful.

Kathakar is now saying that now we should judge beauty from this lines of guru ji. Satguru ji Today has given us this updesh words, now

we should think about this, and imbue ourselves in the love of the Lord, Only this is pleasing and beautiful to God.

that soul that imbues itself with the qualities of the Lord, that soul is the most beautiful.

Bhagat Kabeer ji is saying,

aval alah noor upaa-i-aa kudrat kay sabh banday.

ayk noor tay sabh jag upji-aa ka-un bhalay ko manday. ||1||

Everyone is formed from Parmatma Allah, each every one is of Parmatma.

From one light of the lord, all originated, who is good or bad?

The creator is in the creation, and the creation is in the creator.

Sabh may jot, jot hai soi

In everyone is your light, you are that light.

Being in all, Parmatma is enjoying all, but also is detached from all...watching the drama.

raaj na chaaha-o mukat na chaaha-o man pareet charan kamlaaray.

Satguru ji is saying this line to those sikhs who are on the path, and are bewaring of them that the pleasures of kingdoms,

for example, if any moghul ruler like Jahangir tells one to leave your path ,and gives you the kingdom, Guru ji is telling us that such

rule of kingdoms are useless.

mukat na chaaha-o

That mukat which you want is liberation from maya and entanglements, that mukati is liberation from corruption of kaam, krodh, ahankaar..

That is jivan mukat who is not entangled in any of these.

Satguru ji said to Bhai Maan Singh

do you want forever the rule of heavens,

do you want forever immortality?

do you want forever mukti from death,

Bhai Maan Singh ji said, that separation from which I have suffered from so long Satguru ji, unite me with those Lotus feet of yours.

Kathakar is now telling us what those Lotus Feet are. Those Lotus Feet of Satguru ji, is the Shabad of Satguru ji.

The updesh of Satguru ji is the Lotus Feet.

how should our (preet)love with Satguru ji?

It should be like that of the fish with water,

Guru Nanak Sahib ji is saying,,

love your Satguru, like water in milk become one with eachother.

barahm mahays siDh mun indraa mohi thaakur hee darsaaray. ||1||

Kathakar is now telling that these days, there are so many books on the market with mantra yantra etc that seek

to please the gods shivji, brahma, vishnu etc. and also in those books there are some few lines selected from

Guru Granth Sahib ji also included. Only a select few lines of gurbani are included.

Kathakar is saying that this is not good. He is saying that consider the Gurbani as one big mountain of (mishri) sugar sweet.

And one who eats a small peice of it, says only this small peice of mishri is good, rest is not good. Kathakaar is saying this is

wrong. All of gurbani form, every word is same amrit roop, sweet. Knowledge giving bani.

Kathakaar is saying that we should not seek sant mat or seek pakhandi babas. Should be careful of them. If we seek them it means

that we are broken from Gurbani.

Satguru ji is saying in this pankti, that these brahma, muni, shivji, sidh, indraa (king of god) seek do not these.

A gursikh that gets such bliss from reading from Shabad, he does not get those from any of these, nor from any mukti, or kingdoms of heavens,

None of these are equal to the shabad of Guru ji.

Guru Arjan Sahib Maharaj ji is saying that all brahma, shivji, vishnu, seek not them, but the sight of the Lord.

mun - silent sage

deen du-aarai aa-i-o thaakur saran pari-o sant haaray.

Kathakaar is now giving the example of a lady, who went to one mahapurush and said, I want to make you my Guru, and that person said,

before who was your guru. The lady said that Guru died, the person asked and before that? The Lady said, I had another Guru before him

but he also died.

Meaning that we should not seek these human Gurus, let us go in the sanctuary of Shabad of Guru Granth Sahib ji, our Eternal Guru.

another story he is saying, One day a gurmukh pyara asked, if some person says this bani is false, how will you prove to the other person

that it is true?

In Gurbani there are so very many thoughts and contemplations to improve our lives here, So if some fool, closing his eyes comes to us, and

tells us that the sun does not rise, then how can we explain that fool?

But if some knowledgable person asks us, if he doesnt understand some line from Gurbani, we can ofcourse help him to understand that.

Many Many Many knowledgable people from so very many faiths for the past 500 years have tried to find faults and doubts in Gurbani.

But noone has ever or could find any fault with it.

The thought of Gurbani is very advanced to us, much more then us, 500 years more then us.

Guru ji who told us about Tobacco and to be careful of it, back 500 years ago, It is Today that Scientists are realizing the harmful effects of it

today Science is telling us that there are many suns and planets. But Guru Nanak Sahib ji has told us this 500 years ago, that there are crores

of earths, Suns etc.

Back in the day, we considered it fiction, that there would ever be a airplanes that would be a able to carry so many people from here to there.

But now it is a reality.

Meaning, Wake up now, Satguru ji is giving you this knowledge, by having this knowledge, you will become 500 years advanced ahead of the world.

O Satguru ji, Growing weary now, I have come in your sanctuary now.

kaho naanak parabh milay manohar man seetal bigsaaray. ||2||3||29||

Listening to Guru's shabad, meeting the Lord, my mind has become carefree in bliss.

Vaahiguroo Vahiguroo Vaahiguroo

Vaahiguroo ji ka Khalsa, Vaahiguroo ji ki Fateh.

Servant Nanak has meditated on the Name, O my soul; such is the pre-ordained destiny which the Lord written on his forehead. ||4||5||

Satguru having great mercy on us has given us this hukamnama. Worldy people are engrossed in stress, tensions, worries, anxieties, Guru Ram Das ji seeing this has given us this hukamnama. The reason for all these anxieties and stress is because people have broken thier contact with God.

That child who stays within the lines marked by their parents, stays safe. Their Parents are responsible for what happens to their child. Those children who cross the lines and are not obedient, they encounter so many various troubles in thier life.

Same way, those sikhs of the Guru, who stay within the lines marked by thier Gurus, and are obedient to their Guru, those who stay in the hukam of the Guru, and do simran, the Guru is responsible for thier welfare. The Guru will take care of them.

Today's hukamnama in Bihaagraa Raag, by Sri Guru Ram Das ji is explaining us that those who have not attached themselves to Gurus Teaching, they are wasting their lives. Some people have ages like 50yrs, some 18, some 80, some 67, but if they have not attached themselves to Guru, they are still children. They have not learnt the true way of life.

Those gurmukh pyaray even though their age is very less, they do not attach or focus their love / consciousness on anything else other then simran of God's name, on the virtues qualities of God.

Satguru ji is saying those are moorakh's, who do not do God's devotional simran

Those who have attached to, those are caught in the chains of maya.

Those who are focussed on collecting more and more wealth, property; who are attached to their relatives, parents, friends, spouses, those who are attached to thier children and grandchildren and so on.

Satguru ji is saying that those who are caught in this enticing maya of world, In the very end of their lives they will regret and repent, crying they will leave this world.

dho-ee - access, admittance

They will not get their place of rest, their access to God's court sachkhand.

Such people are revelling in their useless affairs, gossip disgracing others, lying, false praising, those on whose tongue is nothing but filth, following thier own minds, not doing simran, engaging in useless activities.

In the dargeh of God, only the truthful are honored, truthful beings only can sit near God. The False will not find entry there.

Those beings who listen to the advice of Guru, they are saved from this corruptions.

Dhuni Chand has collected a lot of wealth and is engrossed in Wealth. Satguru ji, took some of his belongings, and told him that, Dhuni chand, we will give you this in the next world. Then Dhuni Chand understood this lesson, that Satguru ji was trying to teach him. That nothing will go with him to the next world.

Satguroo ji is there for us at all times. Never does he get tired talking, giving us updesh, nor does he say I dont have time for you, nor does he ignore. Such a beloved Satguru we have. Satguru ji is the only true companion anyone has, our relatives, friends, etc so on are all false.

Our Satguru gives us the true name of the Lord, on whose support the entire existence relies. why leave such a satguru, why not do simran? why attach to another?

Those who have come to the sanctuary, those who have absorbed in them the teachings of Satguru. Satguru ji has given them the naam.

Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Ram Das ji, is telling us do not be lazy, do not delay, do not hesitate to chant meditate on God's name. At the very last moment you won't be able to remember God, who knows how long will there be breath in this body.

Here's an example, to dig a well, and use that water to extinguish the fire which is burning the house right now. It is the same case as delaying in remembering God's name, leaving it for later and later, at the very last moment till death comes, or say I will do simran when Im 60, but who gives you the guarantee that you will live upto that age.

You do not Know when your breath will leave you, so do not delay in remembering God's name.

Just as hindus have 10 festival, blessed days, like the dusshera, pooranmashi, moon eclipse etc etc,

Satguru ji is saying to his sikh, that moment when you remember God's name, that day, that moment is blessed.

That day for us is very bad, when we are broken, unconscious of our Lord, let that day be any day, any special occasion, Gurpurab, Gur Gaddi divas.

O my soul, Guru Ram Das ji is making me understand that the messenger of death or troubles will not come near , if you remember God's name.

God is at all times with us, seeing, listening to our every deeds that we are doing.

God knows everything. God knows how many ants there are on this earth, How many humans, animals there are. How many trees vegetation there is. how many stars, God knows everything, is seeing everything, every moment, God is looking and God knows and God is forever merciful to all.

But just as in school , some children they do not listen to masters teaching, and fail in thier test, in the same way those beings who do not listen to the Teaching of Guru, they fail in life, lose their human lives. Those beings earn sins paap

those people who are obedient to Guru, they are not troubled by anxieties, troubles. Those whose minds are pure, those who have learnt to live in the hukam of the Guru, they have fear of nothing. They have no fear from relatives, death, or maya, anyone.

God's name is without fear, God is without hatred for anyone. When our mind is absorbed in God, who is without fear, without hatred, then the corruption of kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahankaar they will get tired of troubling us, and we do not again wander in doubt.

Even if maya is thrown towards them, even if Lot's of wealth, luxuries, very beautiful women/men come to them, they do not waver ever from God's name. To them the whole world is their family, they have no pride of anything.

Satguru ji is saying those beings who have absorbed themselves in God's name, the fives theives get tired to trouble them again.

Small children who see a fire, find it amusing, and go to put thier hand in it, Just as a mother knows and takes care of this by keeping an eye on the child at all times.

In the same way, the sikh of the Guru, is at all times protected by Satguru ji, Satguru ji takes care of his sikh and prevents him from falling down into something which will cause his sikh pain.

No doubt, the sikh must be lured by the maya of the world, but Satguru ji again and again saves his sikh from such things. Satguru ji says to his Sikh, do not go there, they will burn you, these attachments of maya, they will bite you, as a snake bites its enemy to death.

Then just as a child of the mother then cries, when the Mother takes him away from the luring fire. In the same way, the sikh of the Guru will cry also, and will feel sad within his/her heart, As the sikh learns and grows, having true faith in Satguru ji, and will realize that his/her Good is in the words of the Guru.

Like a blind person does not know if he will fall in a ditch, but a gurmukh person saves him,

Same way, Satguru ji saves his sikh from falling in the ditch.

Satguru ji is saying those who have served the Guru, those who have did simran, all their corruption is gone.

In sikh dharm, there are two main things, seva and simran. Seva can be that which we have to do make and realize those who are wandering to bring them on the path of sikhi, Those who by reason of caste, poor, illiteracy reasons, do not have knowledge of sikhi, we have to do their seva and tell them there is no difference in you and me, come lets walk on the path of the sikhi. Simran is of such a Satguru who gives us this true advice.

We think that we are serving Satguru ji, but it is Satguru ji who is doing our seva. Satguru ji who gives us sunlight, who gives us air to breathe, who has given us night time to rest, who has given us so much that there is no account. Who has given us food, water to drink. Satguru ji is doing a lot of seva for us.

ik araaDhi-aa means

single mindedly worship focus on the true lord.

Sometimes our mind thinks of people, places, and various conversations, thoughts, sometimes we think of astrologers, sometimes of gods and goddesses like brahma vishnu, parvati etc etc

Ik araahdhi-aa means single-mindedly devote our mind to the one Lord and do not think of anything else.

Satguru ji is saying those who have devoted themselves to God, single mindedly , they do not have any more desires left.

Those who have remembered Satguru ji, those who have served satguru, they have realized the true home of God. They have become one with God.

Those who have meditated on God, God has given them abundant blessings, From the very begnning of time, this is thier written destiny.

Translation of Katha

Glory and honor of all, Beloved Sat Guru Granth Sahib ji is blessing us with this holy hukamnama. That person on whom Satguru ji is merciful, Satguru ji gives him updesh (instruction/true teaching/advice/hukam).

Hukamnama's rahaa-o line

kahaa kara-o jaatee kah kara-o paatee. raam ko naam japa-o din raatee. ||1|| rahaa-o.

In Sahib Guru Granth Sahib ji, the word jaatee appears in three different circumstances.

It has three meanings

1. yatri/traveller [ As Bhagat Ravidaas ji has mentioned this in one of his shabad in Raag Sorath, "Jo tum tirath, ton hum Jaatee" ]

2. caste

3. To know / to understand learn [As Guru Arjan ji has mentioned this in a shabad in Raag Dhaanasaare. "charan saran naanak daas har har santee ih biDh jaatee." - Ang 677 ]

Bhagat Namdev ji has used this word jaatee over here to indicate "caste".

In the olden days,when some few people gained understanding and knowledge, they divided people into four castes. Noticing that various people are involved in different types of activities, According to their activity type they named them.

1. Brahman - Those who used to preach and teach, Do relgious ceremonies, give food money donations etc. They wore orange

color of combination of red and yellow, representing spiritual consciousness and its transmuting powers.

2. Kshatriya - Those who used to defend the country, who were brave soldiers, warriors. They wore the color of red, symbolizing dynamic power, discipline and assertiveness

3. Vaishyas - They used to be involved with trading/business. Merchants, Responsible for producing food, farming etc. They wore yellow, color of intelligence and initiative.

4. Shudras - They used to do selfless service, seeking no reward for their service. represented by black, they were involved in the duties of all the castes.

These were four varnas (divisions)

These four were the essential qualities or traits, but as time passed by, the son of shudra, was still called a shudra, even if he/she displayed brave warrior type character. The Kshatriya son was still called a Kshatriya, even though he displayed qualities of cowards. If some fool was born in the house of Brahman, that one still was considered Brahman.

Also, Brahman had declared one more thing, that all Religious things will be done by Brahman, and noone else.

When Kshtriya had need to do religious ceremonies in his house, he used to look at Brahmnins and wanted them to do it for him. When some thief used to loot the house of the brahman, then Brahmin used to look for help of the Kshtriya. When Kshtriyas needed food, they used to look at Vaishays and think of when his crop will ripen, so that it comes to their house. Same case with shudras.

Sadly, Still today when we do something like Akhand Path or some special religious function we seek religious person to do this for us. Even though, Guru Nanak has made all the four varnas(divisions) into one, meaning Guru ji has put all the qualities of the four castes into one person.

From Bhai Gurdaas ji's Vaars

"Chaar Vaaran Ik Vaaran Karaya"

From Four divisions, He created one Division for all.

First, the sikh is a shudra, he is to do selfless service, for example do seva of washing utensils at Gurudwara, do seva of cleaning shoes of sangat. Do Seva of making and distributing langar, get wood from the forests etc.

Second, Guru ji has said to his sikh, whichever vaaypaar (business) or occupation you want to do in the world, do that. For example, a farmer. Also, do not look for help from another for the upbringing of your family, and from the income you get, give daswand of that to Guru ji. In this way, Sikh is a Vaishayi.

Third, Guru ji is saying to his sikh, if some person tries to come and loot your house, if someone comes and tries to harm your family. Do not wait or look for help of Kshatriya, but be yourself a Kshatriya, and fight against the wrong, Become shastardhari, carry weapons with you. Don't let any person try to dominate/ create fear in you/ collecting taxes unrighteously. Be a Kshatriya and for Truth, you will fight.

Fourth, Guru ji's sikh is also a Brahmin, Religious person. Do your daily nitnem, Remember God's name. Do not ask for another person to do sukhmani sahib path for you, by giving him some money. Even small children are better then us, they do not ask their friends, take this money and go to my parents and talk sweet words with them. Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, our father, we cannot say that in our place someone else should do paath, or ardaas for us, We should ourselves do it, Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is our own parent.

If we do not do the above on our own, then we are not perfect sikhs yet. First, we should get our nitnem back in order.

seva, self defence skills, honest job.

--

Further the castes were divided more into the type of work, each one did, like chaamar (peasants, laboureres,leather workers), jhuliahn*, shemba*, mehra(water carriers),tarkhan(wood worker), Ramgharia, Lohar etc The lower castes were discriminated a lot,and treated very badly in society. But Guru Gobind Singh ji embraced them, gave them lots of love and made them Khalsa. Such is the love of our Guru ji.

Shame on people, who recognise castes in pride, calling themselves superior to another.

Guru ji gave us the common surnames of Singh and Kaur, eliminating all links to castes. But still prideful or unknowing people show their castes in their names.

In Todays Hukamnama, Satguru ji has explained us, that all humans are of one division. We should not associate ourselves with jaat paat caste lineage ancestory.

Now if someone wants to say pious people cannot take birth into the family of unpious caste people like of Rakshash tribe. Then think about the life of devotee Prahlaad, who was born in the family of Harnaakash. This applies other way around as well.

In the house of God, only those are honored who do simran. Caste will have no significance there.

Satguru ji is saying, a person is good or bad, only dependent on his deeds. Caste has no significance.

We are fools who have divided ourselves into castes, and calling others lower and others superior. Become like a ant, look at the life of the ant, in one hole, thousands of ants can live. Finding one bit of sugar, they gather all others and eat share it. Stay in Humility, and live a humble life.

Let us single mindedly contemplate the hukamnama.

aasaa.

man mayro gaj jihbaa mayree kaatee.

Todays hukamnama in raag aasaa(hope) is by Bhagat Namdev ji.

gaj has two meanings

1. elephant

2. metre/ measuring device.

jihbaa meaning

tongue

kaatee meaning

1. scissor.

Bhagat Namdev ji is implying that by doing simran of God, I have cut away all the corruption, With my mind measuring the noose of death, and my tongue as the scissors, measuring the noose of death, doing simran, I have cut the noose of death's messenger. Bhagat Namdev ji is saying, Now what do I have to do with caste lineage?

Ravidas ji was a chaamar by caste, renouncing maya, absorbed himself in God's name.

Satguru ji is saying, that various Bhagats, being low caste, but remembering God's name, were absorbed in God's simran, and obtained honor.

The hill rajas came to Guru Gobind Singh ji, and said Guru ji, we will become your khalsa, but please prepare amrit in a separate bowl for us, we are higher caste. Guru Gobind Singh ji did not agree, implying that he created Khalsa for oneness of all humanity. There is no difference in humans, all humans are of one division.

From five tats (elements) of (air,earth,fire,water,ether) all humans are created. Now those who are creating this doubts of castes. Ask them which element is in them, that is not in them.

Bhagat Namdev is now saying

What do I have do with castes? I am absorbed in love with Lords name.

When we are absorbed in God's love, we are dyed in the color of God's love. Then it does not matter if someone makes us sit on boiling pot, cuts our body organs, this dye of God's love never wears out. Bhagat Namdev ji is saying absorb yourself in the love of God's name. By Absorbing in God's love, Bhagat Namdev ji is saying then not even one moment we can live without remembering God.

O Lord only make me sing your virtues, whereever I go.

Kathakaar is now giving an example, He saw one Sikh amrithdhari going to a hindu mandir, he asked him "Why are you going there? " That amritdhari Sikh said "I believe in all Dharmas, Im going there". Then the Kathakaar told him, "No that is not true, I have not seen you going into a mosque, or in a church, then how do you believe in all. Now he is telling, consider a married woman who lives in a neighbourhood, and says I believe in all men of my neighbourhood. Then will that woman be considered a prostitute or a married woman , solely devoted to his husband ? So gurmukh pyara be devoted to only one, Be devoted only to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji"

So many Gursikhs are questioning how much simran we should do or how much bani we should read. Now Satguru ji is answereing this question in this hukamnama.

aath pahar / Twenty four hours a day one should do simran/ bhakti of God. Twenty four hours, be thankful to Parmatma.

su-inay kee soo-ee rupay kaa Dhaagaa.

My needle is gold, and my thread is silver

rupay - silver.

Golden needle meaning the shabad, and the silver thread meaning the consciousness

My consciousness is following the Guru's Shabad, as the silver thread follows the Golden needle, Bhagat Namdev ji's mind is forever attached to Guru's shabad.

Vahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vahiguroo jee ki fateh.

Translation of Katha.

Ocean of Mercy,one throughout all ages, Sri Sat Guru Granth Sahib ji, from the Holiness of Harmandar Sahib, in the ambrosial hours of early dawn has blessed us with his Holy Updesh Hukamnama.

Satguru ji, True King of all, Sri Guru Amardas ji has given us updesh.

In the rahaoo pankti of today, Guru ji is giving us understanding us of the disease of ego.

How to get rid of this disease? How this will go away?

First, It is necessary to know from where the disease has originated.

Satguru ji is saying that do not consider this as an ordinary disease, it exists in subtle form also. Satguru ji has also told that this disease can be cured and its cure/medicine is also within it.

Only Satguru ji can treat this disease, Only by being in the presence of Satguru this haumai/ego goes.

Just as there are separte doctors for treating heart diseases, eye, ear specialists etc. For the disease of ego, Only Satguru ji is the doctor.

Ego/Pride is based on qualities, virtues that person has. The person does pride of that.

Kabeer ji is saying,

I have nothing in me, Everything that is, is yours only.

haumai - ego

One should know that we have no qualities in us, all qualities are of God.

We do all activities in haumai, Whether good or bad, A person does all deeds in haumai.

Even very wise persons, lot of sewadars could not escape the pain of haumai.

Even when someone calls someone a sewadar, then the sewadar gets haumai, that Iam sewadar. In this way, even lot of wise and knowledgable people have not escaped from haumai.

One Saint who is doing bhagti for 40 days continously without eating. Satguru ji is saying, wht does he eat? People said, we never seen him eating anything. Satguru ji is saying, something he is hungry for. At the end of 40 days, people said lot of drums and celebrations for him will be made. Satguru ji is saying that person is hungry for pride and said not to do any of those activities at the end of the 40 day time.

When the person came out at the end, he saw that noone is outside waiting for him. At that very instant he collapsed on the ground, because he didnt get the food of "pride" from people.

Satguru ji is saying that one who does pride on his bodily form, on his color, on his works, that person is an insect living in filth. That who does pride on his wealth is a fool and an illiterate when comes to true knowledge. That person who has ego of doing very good things, who thinks of ownself as very good person, Satguru ji is saying that person is far from goodness.

Everything is given by God, what is our own?

Satguru ji is saying leave all your pride. Leave all these attachments. If one leaves his haumai and pride and comes and sits near the feet of Satguru ji, Satguru ji will for sure do kirpa.

Parmatma only is benevolent to his devotees who have left thier ego. Parmatma will turn his back on us, if we stick with our pride and ego.

One who is humble, one who has no ego, no pride obtains all blessings.

When one says mine, mine, then no works will be accomplished. But when one leaves mine, mine,, all works will be accomplished.

When Ravan, he did pride of his possessions, he lost all everything.

When Duryodhana did pride of himself, he lost all everything, family, belongings.

When Aurangzeb, did pride, he lost everything, he lost his daughter, he arrested his own son in his own fears of losing his empire.

Kathakaar is now starting the katha of the hukamnama pankti's

Wadhans is the name of Raag, Sri Guru Amardas ji is giving this shabad to us.

Now Kathakaar is giving story of a Preacher in US, he went to a class of students, and said there is only one Guru in thier religion. Then one Christian student in the class said, how is this true, you have ten Gurus, and he also named a few of the Gurus, then all the students clapped for that christian student, even sikh students clapped, proving the preacher wrong. The Preacher said, Students, I will give you the answer of this question for sure. Then he picked up one book from the table, and said, how many of you have this book?

Every student had the book, The preacher said how is this possible, this book is only one, but you have also this book, you have copies of this book. Then the preacher said, this same way, we have only one Guru, only, Shabad Guru, and ten were the forms of Shabad Guru. The disciple is the consciousness.

Ego and God are opposites, They can never be in the same place.

We can look at nature, Just as a tree that has sweet fruits(virtues) it bows down, Look at apple trees, mango trees. this same way when we lose our ego, we become humble.

In Ego one cannot do seva, Nor can devotional worship be performed when there is ego. One should do devotional worship, thinking as God is doing all.

When we see from the viewpoint of our ego's then our whole world gets divided. We think some as low, some as high. In this way seva cannot be done from this viewpoint of ego.

Reading Guru Sahib's gurbani, applying this to our life this is the jaap of Guru ji's bani. Not merely reciting, but with understanding of the lessons taught. Earn the word of Guru's Shabad. Do your actions as per Guru ji's words. If one does like this, then one will understand the hukam of parmatma. If we earn a life with faith according to Guru ji's bani, then ego will depart from within.

Those who have absorbed themselves in Guru ji's hukam, then Parmatma abides in that person's heart.

Satguru ji is saying in all beings there is ego, everyone is being eaten by pride. Through this we go through the cycles of birth and death. Ego is darkness, in which we cannot see the truth. Guru's Shabad is the light, which removes this darkness and we can see the true path.

In Ego, we cannot do devotion, nor can we understand hukam. Sahib Sri Guru Amar Das ji, is saying by absorbing Guru's shabad, haumai will go.

Nanak has entered His Sanctuary, O Siblings of Destiny; the Lord is the Destroyer of sins. ||9||1||

Worshipped by all, Lord of all, Satguru Maharaj ji has blessed us with Updesh.

In today's Rahao Pankti, Satguru ji is saying that people have always need of this and that thing, and wander to get worldly needs fullfilled, sometimes they become someone's servant, sometimes another. Satguru ji, is saying, if you want to fullfill your worldy needs seek the sanctuary of God, who is the treasure of all, who is the giver of naam.

Satguru ji, is saying that the Lord first created your sustenance, then you were born. O mortal you should not worry about these worldly needs, God already knows of your needs, so leave your worries; and remember him. If you seek God, then all this worldly goods will come after you, and you will not even have to seek them. Ask from God, his name, ask from God, his rememberance love, Asking like this all your hungers, pains, suffereings will be gone.

When Bhai Gurdas ji was returning back towards Amritsar, he visited one of Guru sevak's house, and noticed that sevak was suffering from a terrible disease. Bhai Gurdas ji said, ask Satguru ji to cure your disease. Sevak said, no Bhai ji, I do not want to ask for the cure of this disease, this body is temporary, it will be reduced to ashes sooner or later. If I will ask something from Satguru ji, I will ask name of God.

Parmatma, what should I ask for? Long life?

I will have to leave this place sooner or later one day.

Parmatma, what should I ask for? a son?

That son will also leave me one day O Lord.

Parmatma, what should I ask for? Wealth?

That comes to go, and I will never be fullfilled with it.

Parmatma, I should ask for your name, so remembering it, my life purpose will be fulfilled.

Parmatma, Give me your name, so that I never forget you even for an instant.

Parmatma, You are my Great Giver, Im your beggar, bless me with the your name.

The Gift of humility is only found in the house of Guru Nanak.

Bless your servant with the gift of naam.

Let us single mindedly concentrate on Today's hukamnama.

Todays hukamnama is in Sorath Raag, by Guru Arjan Dev ji,

Parmatma, you are one, and you are obtained through your own mercy.

Everything, all Works, duties, of this world was created by you, Parmatma. The doer of every work.

Without you, Parmatma nothing is accomplished.

From the five elements of air, water, earth, fire, ether; Parmatma, you created this creation, this human body.

There is Only one Parmatma, creating all. Parmatma is not seen, Parmatma is not visible.

Through Satguru ji, through Gur shabad, Parmatma is known and seen.

Beyond Worlds upon worlds , there is still more and more worlds.

In the same way, beyond all, and in all there is Parmatma.

For mortals, everything can be described about them.

But O Parmatma, I have seen this, that your qualities, your virtues, your description cannot be told.

You are beyond words, beyond limits.

O Parmatma, doing your simran; When my mind loves you,

then Satguru blesses me with your naam.

Parmatma's naam destroys all my sufferings, pain. O Parmatma, what is not in your home? Everything is there.

Satguru ji, I run around seeking in the ten directions, from people, things, places,

I seek only you, Im deluded, broken from you, Please unite me with you.

Your virtues are priceless. No one can evalute their worth.

Sometimes, In my ardaas, I ask for being the dust of people, but I do not ask to be dust of my enemies,

But you O parmatma, you love all. you sustain all, evil or good, you are everyone's.

Satguru ji, Through your mercy, I get my sustenance everyday.

Satguru ji, I should seek to unite with your holy feet. Satguru ji, your shabad, your updesh, your hukamnama is your holy feet.

Satguru ji, you have given me the soap of God's name, with which I clean the filth of my mind, In the Sat Sangat, I seek to remember your name.

All Blessings, All Fruits come from you beloved Satguru ji.

Mine, Mine, Yours Yours, I should leave this feeling, and should seek to be the dust of all people.

Mine, Mine I should say that, only if Parmatma's power was not in every heart, I should say, Tera, Tera, because its all yours, O Parmatma.

That day, When I forget you Parmatma, that day my soul is dead.

Those who do Parmatma's simran, Parmatma unites them with his own self. Obeying the Guru, the lotus blossoms forth in the heart.

When someone does simran of Parmatma's name, with his/her tongue, then that one will come to know the blissful taste of your name.

When your name is listened to, with the ears, then the unchanging place is found within.

Those who have not found Parmatma, Those who do not have faith in this, they die die away suffering.

Parmatma, you are full of virtues, Im forever a sacrifice to you.

Those who have come to your sanctuary, your presence, they have found thier true place.

You are the true sustainer of all. Creator of air and food.

Remembering Parmatma, one is dyed in the color of love.

Those who have found the perfect Guru, they are blessed, Fortunate.

Guru Nanak Sahib ji is saying to his mother,

Aakhaa jeeva Visrai mar jaoo

Remembering Parmatma I live, Forgetting I die

Parmatma who is present everywhere, who is pervading all places. We should not forget even for an second.

Parmatma is forever with us, Why then forget?

Those who dispute the updesh, those who have not had love for their Guru, are dying away suffering.

Satguru ji doing kirpa, has carried us across the worldy ocean.

Those who have made the name of Parmatma, their support of life, their bodies and mind are cooled soothed in perfect peace.

Let us come to the sanctuary of Satguru ji, and make our life's purpose fullfilled.

Satguru ji is instructing our minds,

raam - all pervading.

creation.

Constantly Sing Praise Remember the names of the infinite Lord and

through blessings of Satguru ji,

You will drink in the bliss of God's name.

Absorb yourself in singing Guru's shabad, praising the infinite Lord.

your own grace.

O my mind, worship with single minded devotion, Singing, Contemplating,

Earning Guru's Shabad, all desires will be fullfilled.

Attach yourself to Guru's Shabad, like the fish loves the water, the

rainbird longs for a drop of rain.

Through Guru's Shabad, your thirst of desire will be quenched and pain,

fear of birth, death will go.

Sing praises of the Lords name. When Satguru ji is pleased, the

mind will drink in the nectar of Lord's name.

In the true company of those who are singing your praises, bless me,

Satguru ji, and unite me with those who have not forgotten you,

On them, Satguru ji, you are forever merciful. Bless me Satguru ji, so I

wash the feet of your humble servants.

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee ke fateh

Guru roop sadhsangat jee, Guru roop khalsa jee. If we think of the worldy religions, then in total there are about 350. Where there would have been universal appeal for them, but they are narrow within themselves. For example, the world of islam, think that Allah only understands and recognises Arabic language. Hindu Brothers think that in the house of parmatma, think only language of the shesh nag(thousand headed snake) is spoken only, Sehaskritee/ Sanskrit is only the language there.

Dhan Guru Nanak Sahib jee, did not confine dharam/religion inside any boundaries. Like a well, or a stream, river; its purpose is to quench thirst of the people; Same way the purpose of religion is give peace to people. For this reason, Dhan Guru Nanak Sahib jee went to different pilgrimage centres, went to mecca, went to hindu sacred places, and spread the True Teachings.

Satguru Maharaj ji went and met one islamic priest, and that priest recognised him as Satguru of all, and asked several questions to make his life successful. And Today's Hukamnama, is related to this, that Satguru Nanak Sahib jee went to different places and removed thier doubts.

When various people from various places came to Dhan Guru Nanak Sahib jee, then Guru ji, removed their doubts by teaching them the truth by giving examples of their own regions/cultures.

For example, one musalman, asked Guru Nanak Sahib jee several questions. The very first question he asked was.

1. What is the real name of God?

When we read in the various scriptures we see several ways that "name" has been defined.

One is a relational name (for example, sita raam,from ramayana), one is of the caste name,( for example raghu vir raam, raghu is a caste dynasty).

But our Gurus did not follow this system, and gave us the name "Vaahiguroo". Vidvaans, have done 3 meanings of the word Vaahiguroo.

Vahiguroo - One who gives inspiration, One who is wondrous form achraj saroop, and Bismaad roop form

In Today's hukamnama, Gurdev used the very first line, which is resembling the achraj saroop.

According to Snatan Dharma, Brahma is considered the creator, vishnu the nourisher.. In Hindu Purana's , there is a story that Brahma was born from the navel of Vishnu, Then the doubter is thinking, if Brahma is born from the navel of Vishnu, then from where is Vishnu born?

Guru Nanak Sahib jee has said that there is only one God and there are millions of Brahma's and vishnu's.

In Jaap Sahib, we read daily, it's sacred words, Akrita Krit hain. Meaning, Parmatma is not created.

O Parmatma, you are wondrous, my mind is in love with you, seeing your beautiful creation.

deen dunee-aa ayk toohee sabh khalak hee tay paak. rahaa-o.

deen - heavens, beyond this world.

dunee-aa - this world

Khalak - people, world

Different languages have different meanings of the same word, in this line.

In arabic / Paak - pavittr, pure

In sanskrit / Paak - Kitchen, rasoi

In punjabi /paak - flthy bad blood

We have to know what Gurdev is saying, and use that appropriate meaning for paak.

Parmatma, you the Lord of this world and the worlds beyond, remaining among the (filth)people of this world, You are pure, pavittr.

For example, a lamp's work is do give light, it can be used by a priest in a temple, or by prostitute in her home, the priest does good work with it, whereas the prostitute does filth, using the light of the lamp. But the lamp is neither pure nor good.

For example, the duty of sun is to give light, it falls equally on the muddy pool of water, it falls equally on a Gurudwara, Its purpose is to give light.

Such is parmatma forever pure among the filth of this world.

Guru Amar Das ji, when he was young in his earlier age, before becoming Guru, one time while he was sitting, a hindu astrologer by chance noticed padam rakha, the fortune line on Guru ji's foot, and bowed to Guru ji, and said, Baba ji, you will one day have the canopy over your head. You will be the Lord of the three worlds. Guru Amar Das ji, said this is good thing, that you have told, tell me what gift you want? the Astrologer said, Not right now Baba ji, When the time comes I will ask you.

Later, when Guru Amar Das ji, became the Guru and established the city of Goindwal, and had a great following, lot of people came and the news spread to that astrologer. The astrologer came to the court of Guru ji, he couldnt control his laughter also, because his prediction turned true, Guru ji also recognised him. Guru ji asked, Pandit ji you have come, ask for your gift. But Guru ji said, be thoughful of what you ask for, if you want worldy gifts, or gifts for beyond this worlds. Astrologer, said Guru ji, I do not want to beg from people's door to door for worldy things, Guru ji do mercy on me, give me both the gifts of this world and the next, the world beyond. Guru ji did mercy, and fulfilled the wish of that pandit.

Same way, in this line of Today's hukanama, Guru ji is saying, that the one Parmatma controls all matters not only in this world, but also in the next world, the world beyond. The one Parmatma is present in both this world and worlds beyond this world, present among the world,people of this world, you are pure.

khin maahi thaap uthaapadaa aacharaj tayray roop.

As you wish, You destroy and create in an instant. You are wondrous O Parmatma.

In an instant, you convert a king to a beggar and a beggar to a king.

In an instant, you convert a desert to rainforests.

O Lord, your works are wondrous. They are awe-inspiring.

You have infinite forms, from one drop of water, a creature is born, you created eyes for them to see, ears to hear.

wondrous is your works. Who can desrcibe your wondrous acts?

In this world, all around is darkness, O Parmatma, you are the light in it. You are the owner; Lord of all creation.

You never get angry on us, even though we are involved in filth, you are forever merciful on us.

Just like a mother who is merciful to his child, even though the child can be bad. But the mother is always forever merciful.

Bhai Sham Singh ji is saying, that the tree of peepal, or anyother tree provides shade from the sun, But the shade of mother is even deeper.

Those who remember you, Lord, they do not go to hell, those who remember you with the rising sun, and the setting sun, they do not goto hell.

In quran, muslim dharma, there are four angels, one of them azraael which takes the soul out of the body, at the time of death.

Satguru ji is saying, you would not be afraid of Azraael, the angel/messenger of death. He will become your friend, if you remember God's name. He will become your servant, if you remember , if you take the support of the Lord.

Kathakar is now saying that we should not add extra, our own words in the ardaas.

Like

Teg Bahadar Simriye Ghar Nau Nidh Awai Dhaai Sabh Thaaeen Hoi Sahai

Some ppl they add Guru Teg Bahadar Simriye, or hind ki chaddr, Teg Bahadar Simriye..

We should not modify the words of Guru Gobind Singh in the ardaas. As Guru ji has written. We should read it.

All sins are destroyed by having your blessed sight. This world is only temporary place. True place, True home is your name. True peace will come from your Name.

Only praise the one Lord.

O Parmatma, unite me with the true congregation which have not forgotten you, remove my pride, make me the servant of your servants, who have not forgotten you. Bless me so that I can sing your praises before sunrise. Bless me with the sight of those beings who have not forgotten you. So that I may forever sing your praises with every breath. May I forever earn the bliss of your name.

Parmatma, you are forever with me, you never leave me. You are the treasure of peace. I have expereinced all sort of joys, but O Parmatma, the joy that is in meeting you, that joy is not found in any other thing. That person is fortunate who remembers you. Those souls are married to their Lord, in their hearts is eternal peace bliss.

forgive any mistakes,

For so many incarnations, I have been separated from You, Lord; I dedicate this life to You.

ਕਹਿ ਰਵਿਦਾਸ ਆਸ ਲਗਿ ਜੀਵਉ ਚਿਰ ਭਇਓ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਦੇਖੇ ॥੨॥੧॥

कहि रविदास आस लगि जीवउ चिर भइओ दरसनु देखे ॥२॥१॥

kahi ravidaas aas lag jeeva-o chir bha-i-o darsan daykhay. ||2||1||

Says Ravi Daas: placing my hopes in You, I live; it is so long since I have gazed upon the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. ||2||1||

Worshipped by all, King of all , Ocean of Mercy, Satguru ji has done great mercy on us, and given us hukamnama, during the ambrosial hours of morning. In Today's shabad, Ravidas bhagat ji, In rahaa-o pankti is saying,

ha-o bal bal jaa-o rama-ee-aa kaarnay. kaaran kavan abol. rahaa-o.

I am a sacrifice, a sacrifice to the Lord. O Lord, why are You silent? ||Pause||

We can be a sacrifice to only those, who we love so much. Satguru Gobind Singh ji has given us everything, who sacrificed his whole family for us.

God is taking care of us in every way, Ravidas is saying "Iam a sacrifice to you, my Omnipresent Lord"

We worldy people, even if we are rulers and kings, but in front of Lord, we are beggars. The breath we are taking every moment, this is from God. We are given a limited number of breaths, and any amount of money cannot give a person more breaths.

God, has given us water, without which life is not possible. Through water all life originated.

We should not pride ourselves of our achievements , like if there are airplanes today. All this is possible through mercy of God. If God didnt give us metals and resources, from where could we make all this. God gave us vegetation, our food, without which we die.

God is the protector of his devotees. Bhagat vachal.

God you even take care of those, who even forget all that you have done for them. You are most merciful. You are the inner knower, knower of all hearts. When I think, of you as the inner knower, I feel ashamed of my sinful life, that I have not remembered your name.

But when I see that you have even carried across sinful beings, through your mercy. Im a sacrifice to you, O Parmatma.

Im like the simmal tree, and you O God are like the sandalwood tree, when you are near me, simmal tree absorbs the qualities of the sandalwood tree.

There is noone as sinful as me, noone as compassionate as you.

When a queen, made Ravidas ji sit on a elephant, with a canopy on his head. Ravidas ji is thinking, O Parmatma, a sinful person like me, a low caste chamar like me, who can give this greatness other then you , O Lord?

We are always beggars in front of you, O Lord. There is noone as merciful and kind as you, and no sinner as me.

Like as much water is in the ocean, so much sins are in me, Do your mercy on me Lord, you even carry stones across the ocean.

Let us absorb todays hukamnama with single minded devotion. Satnaam Sri Vaahiguroo ji.

In Raag Dhaansare, Bhagat Ravidas from beneras, a devotee of God, who worked as a leather worker. Bhagat Ravidas ji, is saying you do so much mercy on us. Day and night you have given us comfortable places to live, you have given us air to breathe, you have given us sunlight, warmth. You have given us food to eat. You have given us everything, There is noone as sinful as me, and noone as merciful as you.

My mind has settled on your words, If you say, be content, do seva, do simran, my mind now agrees to this. Please do mercy on me, that I earn my living as per your words. Give me this perfection.

O Parmatma, Im forever, again and again a sacrifice to you. You are beautiful O Lord, You are wondrous.

For what reason, O Lord you are not talking to me?

Rahaa-o Pause

Parmatma, for so many births, so many births, I have been wandering, I have been separated from you, but now O Lord, my mind has agreed on your words, I will walk on the path shown by your words. I will dedicate this life to you, O lord.

Parmatma, for so long, I have been waiting for your darshan, Now do kirpa Maharaj ji, give me your darshan/sight.

Kathakaar is now saying, that with these eyes, darshan cannot be had, as long as one does not contemplate gurbani, that person will not have darshan.

Hill rajas, fought wars with Satguru ji, but did they really have darshan of Satguru ji? Their hearts were stone-hearted.

Those who made Guru Arjan Dev ji, sit in the boiling pot, they saw Guru Arjan dev ji. But did they really have darshan of Satguru ji?

Those who have moulded their lives according to Gurbani, they will have darshan of Satguru ji. Those, who all have done contemplation of Gurbani, their lives have changed.

Kathakaar is now saying about the pauri's of Suni-ai, listening, contemplating Gurbani, in Jap ji Sahib.

suni-ai siDh peer sur naath. ( Through suni-ai, you will become sidh, peer, sur, naath.)

suni-ai Dharat Dhaval aakaas. ( through suni-ai, you will know of the support of Dharat, Dhaval, Aakaas.)

suni-ai deep lo-a paataal. ( You will know what's happening in the lower worlds, underworlds, all worlds, all through suni-ai)

That student who doesnt study the lesson given by the master, that student will not be successful, only that student will be successful who studies the lesson given by the master.

So Kathakaar is saying, you have to contemplate the shabad to be successful.

There is a hindu festival, known as ardh kumbh going on. Believing by washing in ganga water, one will obtain liberation. If this was so, then ants, insects, in that water would have been liberated. Nothing will happen of it.

Without the Lord's name, Liberation is not obtained.

Sit in sat sangat, and wash your mind listening to gurbani.

Meditate on Lord's name, wash your mind, then do charity/daan, teach others this.

Jo Kich hai so tera

Whatever there is, is yours.

When we wash our mind like this, we will free ourselves of the five thieves of kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahaankaar.

Only the truthful are honored in this world. Do charity for truth. Only that being on whom, Satguru ji gives his updesh is wise, is honored.

Those who have obtained God, Im a sacrifice to them. This meeting can happen in the sat sangat in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji. In those whose minds, abide Satguru ji, they alone are pure.

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee ki fateh

Guru Roop Sadh Sangat ji, Khalsa ji, In Today's hukamnama, Guru Arjan Dev ji is blessing us with updesh. That Gursikh who for even one instant, remembers his Guru, then Bhai Gurdas ji is saying, Satguru ji remembers his sikh again and again.

In History there is a conversation between Satguru Gobind Singh ji and Bhai Daya Singh ji, Satguru ji was seeming to be engaged in counting. Then Bhai Daya Singh ji, said Satguru ji, you have taken us out of all worries, Satguru ji, what are you engaged in counting?. Satguru ji said, Bhai Daya Singh, You misunderstood, Im thinking of those Gurmukhs who remember me, and counting those, taking those out who don't remember me.

Those that will think of Wealth at the time of death, are reborn as snake

- of family at the time of death, are reborn as a pig

- thinking in kaam, that person will be reborn as a prostitute.

- thinking of mansions will be born as wandering ghost/pret

that person who remembers Lord, will be liberated, will obtain God.

But don't leave this to the time of death, if we remember God now, then at the time of death we will remember God.

If we are entangled in worldy affairs now, then we will remember worldy affairs also at the time of death.

Maharaja of Patiala, Raja Bhupinder Singh asked Sant Attar Singh ji (Mastuane Wale), Sant ji, Why have you kept so many singhs along with you? It seems they are spoiled, their way of talking to you makes me think that their is no difference between them and my soldiers.

Sant ji, said, I have kept them in the hope that they will change and help to spread the true message to all. But There is a world of difference between your soldiers and my singhs.

Raja said, Sant ji, how is the difference?

Sant ji, said, OK tonight we will show you.

Then at the middle of the night, Sant ji and Raja, went with a bucket of cold water, towards the singhs of Sant Attar Singh ji and sprinkled drops of cold water on them. Immediately those singhs thought it is amrit vela we should get up and do simran of God. Sant ji, said to them, Singho, go back to sleep, its not amritvela yet, we were just passing through here.

Then, Sant Ji and Raja, went towards the Soldiers of the Raja, and sprinked drops of cold water on them, Immediately Soldiers said, we have been attacked by enemies, get ready get prepared. Then the Raja said, no go back to sleep. We were just passing by here.

Sant ji said to Raja, Did you understand the difference?

Raja said, No Sant ji, I didnt understand.

Sant ji, said , See my singhs, even in their sleep they are thinking of amrit vela, and thinking of God, their thoughts are towards God, and when the drop of water was sprinkled on them, then they thought its amrit vela. But your soldiers their thoughts and focus is towards war, when water is sprinkled on them, they are thinking of their enemies.

This is the difference.

In the same way, we should not wait till our last ending moment to think of God. We have to devote ourselves now, to remember God in our last moments.

In Todays Hukamnama, Guru ji is telling us, that by remembering God, all your troubles will vanish. Parmatma, will do kirpa on you. Let us single mindedly listen and obey Guru's word.

Sometimes we remember our children, sometimes maya, sometimes wife, sometimes relations etc.

Gurmukh, remember Parmatma, and your happiness, comforts will be with you at all times.

When we goto Hazoor Sahib, there is also a nearby Gurudwara. There is a story of some devotees, who used to read gurbani, but couldnt memorize it. They were locked up in a fort, and could not get out. After reading the lines in Sukhmani Sahib.

Satguru sikh kay bandhan katai

They thought, that Satguru ji cuts the bonds of his sikh, we should remember him them, as they were unable to learn the whole bani by heart, they just recited the line

Satguru sikh kay bandhan katai

Satguru Sikh kay bandhan katai

Satguru Sikh kay bandhan katai

over and over again they recited it. At that time, Guru Gobind Singh ji had left his bodily form, and Guru Granth Sahib ji were presiding on Gur Gaddi. The devotees, knew it, and they again and again recited the lines.

Satguru Sikh kai bandhan katai

Satguru Sikh kai bandhan katai

Like this, Guru Gobind Singh ji, gave them darshan, and said , Gurmukh pyaro, You have been remembering me, I have come and you have closed eyes, open your eyes.

Guru ji, cut their bonds, when they said Dhan Guru Nanak , Vaahigurooo

Those who remember Satguru, they are forever in bliss, forever happy.

Pains, sorrows do not come near them

There are 4 types of dukh(sorrow)

1. separation from loved ones

2. hunger of food

3. fear of death, fear of jamdoot/ of messenger of death.

4. bodily pains

There are 5 types of kalays (worries? anxiety?)

1. Ignorance / Unknowing

2. Ego Pride, That Iam something, That Iam great, worrying that noone should be greater then me etc

3. Unequality, like castes, division among peoples. All are not equal.

4. Moh/Attachment

2. Jealous/hatred

When you do simran parmatma, then you will see parmatma in all, then all these dukh kalays will not come near you.

Your mind will stay in bliss.

Many times, we sing praises of Lord, but we think of Parmatma "as someone else". But Kathakaar, is saying, don't do simran like that. When you do simran of Parmatma, think of Parmatma "as your own".

Dukalan Prnaase Diayalan Saroope

Destroyer of sorrows pains, embodiment of mercy

Sada ang sangay ,abhangan bibhootay

Ever present by our side, indestructible eternal illumined glory

Your name is the support of all, it gives sustenance to all. We come to understand this through the updesh of Pooran Satguru ji only. Remember Lord at all times, you will cross over the worldy ocean. O Lord, You are yourself the listener and yourself the advisor, you yourself are the doer, you yourself are the enjoyer in all, You yourself are the giver. What can the poor creatures do?? They are mere puppets, like trumpetts, as you blow them, so do they make noise.

how can they praise your glories O Lord, you are merciful on all, Some do nitnem you do kirpa on them, some do aarti, you do kirpa on them, some read namaz, some pray to you, you do mercy on all, You do not belong to any religion or sect. You are merciful to all, your worth cannot be estimated.

Your creatures should think of you, as ever present. Your creation is wondrous, Iam in awe at the miracle of your creation. I humbly pray to you, I do not consider any lesser gods, as my diety, I Only consider you as my Lord Master. On whom you have done mercy, they have become wise.

As this breath continues to come and go, I am forever a sacrifice to you. Satguru ji, that place where you have placed your foot, the dust of that place has become pure. Kathakaar is giving example of sacred places like Anandpur Sahib, Nanaksar , those places where Satguru ji have been.

This was todays hukamnama, let us absorb the message and remember Satguru ji every instant.

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee ki fateh.

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, vaahiguroo jee kee fateh

guroo roop sadhsangat jee, guroo saroop khalsa jee.

If we look at our bhartiya(Indian) way of attaining God, there are two main ways ie

1. Hatha yoga

2. Sehaj yoga

Patanjali Rishi(saint seer) has more emphasized on Hatha yoga, which include practices like controlling breath, pranayama, keeping fasts.

The way of Guru Nanak Sahib jee, and the way of devotional bhagats of 15th century, then we will see that they have stressed on Sehaj yoga.

Baba Trilochan jee asked Baba Namdev ji, Mahapurshu, on one side you are aiming to acheive God, but on the other side, you are weaving clothes, weaving comforters, sewing them etc.

How will you find God like this, Namdev ji?

Namdev ji humbly replied to Trilochan ji,

The relation with God is through my mind, with the body I do my work, but with the mind I focus my consciousness on God. My body has needs, my family has needs, I can fulfill those needs through the use of my body, While I focus my mind on God.

-

In that which, God is remembered in the morning, evening, night is called sehaj yoga. Satguru Patshaah Maharaj has stressed on Sehaj yoga.

Gurdev ji is saying, only remember the one.

Todays hukamnama is in Raag Dhanaasaree, By Guru Nanak Sahib ji.

Sehaj has three meanings.

1. Shanti, peace

2. Gian, Knowledge

3. adolta, Unwavering, fixed

Guru ji is saying,

those whose minds have become sehaj(adol) on God, accepted is this union with God.

How do we become adol? We often read bio, histories of sant mahapurush's, so that we can give some lesson to our own lives.

The life of Baba Buddha Shah, is very inspirational for us.

Baba Buddha Shah, when he was young, was grazing sheep and was doing rememberance of Allah, while Guru Nanak Sahib jee noticed him.

Baba Buddha Shah, through kirpa, was blessed with opportunty to meet Guru Nanak Sahib jee, and Baba Buddha Shah thought to himself, that he should do some seva of Guru Nanak Sahib jee. He brought milk for Guru ji. Guru ji said, Baba Buddha Shah, we will take your milk when we come in our sixth form (of Guru Hargobind Sahib).

Baba Buddha Shah, thought to himself, if Guru ji has promised to come and take the seva of his offering of milk, then Guru ji will eventually meet me in the sixth form. The mind of Baba Buddha Shah, became Sehaj(Adol/Unwavering) on this truth.

This is a promise of such a long time, The mind of Baba Buddha Shah is adol on the fact that eventually Guru ji will accept his seva of milk.

History says, that Guru Hargobind Sahib jee, accepted the offering of milk from that Guru Pyara Baba Buddha Shah, and made his life purpose fullfilled.

So in this same way, In Today's Hukamnama, Satguru Nanak Sahib ji is saying, Those whose minds have become adol, those whose minds have no doubts in them are counted as those who meet God, those who have not made their mind yet, those who are not adol in thier purpose of fullfilling this, they are not in the counting yet.

Those whose minds have become adol, they do not come and go in birth and death.

What is the reason for that?

Because when the mind is sehj/adol. Then the mind does desire anything else, only when the mind desires more and more, does it come again and again to fullfil its wishes.

Kathakaar is now talking about Jyotshi Granth, that he possesses. He is saying, he has read several things in it. He said the essence of it is that, due to "sanskaar" (unfulfilled give and take/karma/desires), humans take birth again and again. These Sanskaars are erased when one comes in the sanctuary of Satguru ji.

Those ones whose mind is Sehj/adol in God, they do not come and go in reincarnation, birth and death.

thaakur meh daas daas meh so-ay.

slave is in the Lord and Lord is in his slave

is like the gurbani pankti of

Saagar may boond, boond may saagar

drop is in the ocean, ocean is in the drop

Saints, are the beloveds of God.

If there was no God, then Saints would not have preached about God.

Within true beloved saints, God is present,

Within God, the true beloved saints are present.

Whereever I see, there I see God.

If there are doubts that Parmatma is not present. The reason is that Satguru ji's sanctuary is not sought.

As long as the mind is not fixed on IK, until then the mind will not become sehj/adol

Satguru ji has given me one understanding: There is only one(IK) giver of all, may I never forget the one(IK)

guraa ik dayhi bujhaa-ee. sabhnaa jee-aa kaa ik daataa so mai visar na jaa-ee. ||5||

Come in the house of Satguru ji, That house is the mat/wisdom of Guru ji.

Kathakaar is giving example of the company of bad company/sangat

In history, it is said that one mulla, was a good friend of Guru Nanak Sahib jee, and he was separated for six months, later Guru Nanak Sahib jee went by that route where the mulla lived, but by this time, mulla was in a bad company, and had changed, he didnt have desire to meet Guru ji, Mardana called out for mulla, but his wife came out and said(as mulla asked her to say), that he was not in the house.

Guru Nanak Sahib ji, said, if mulla is not there, then lets go Mardana, as soon as Guru ji said this words, a snake came out near Mulla, and bit him. This is because, the spoken words of Satguru become true, whatever the Satguru says becomes true. If Satguru is leaving, it is because mulla is not there. Hence, mulla had to be not there.

True Guru is that, who merges us in the truth.

Vaahiguroo is the eternal name of truth, power.

Those who are saints of God, they have only one work, of Rememberance of God. They have no other work to do.

Just as a gambler never leaves his gamble, Just as an alcoholic never leaves his addiction.

They dont leave their works. Just as a prostitute likes corruption.

For Parmatma, Purity is what is pleasing.

In the mind of saints is Parmatma,

those alone are pure, who are one with Parmatma.

Those who are beloved of Parmatma, they are accepted in the court of Parmatma.

Between Satguru ji and Parmatma, there is no difference. Those who have met Satguru ji, they have met Parmatma.

Satguru ji, is saying, by being stubborn; Parmatma is not obtained.

Nor through any rituals.

Nor through any dress or garb.

Parmatma has created these bodies, within these bowls of bodies, is the name of Parmatma.

As long as we dont have love for naam, The name of Parmatma does not well up from the bowl.

Those who think they are very wise, Those who think themselves very intelligent, very knowledgable, are lost in debates and arguments, forgetting Parmatma.

Sahas Sianpa lakh hoia, Ta ik na chalay naal.

Just as eating healthy food, we have strong bodies. We have to eat the food of rememberance of Parmatma's name.

When we have devotedly served Parmatma, we are united with Parmatma.

Some are doing pilgrimages, some are renunciates in forests. They do various things, but thier minds is wavering. Its not fixed(sehj/adol).

Without pleasing Him, what good are ritual cleansings?

tirath naavaa jay tis bhaavaa vin bhaanay ke naa-ay karee.

We have cleaned our bodies through soap and water, but how do we clean our dirt of the filthy mind? How to make it pure

Those Gurmukh pyaray, who have absorbed the true wisdom of Satguru ji, they have obtained honor and glory

In this way, O Gurmukh,

understand that Parmatma is within you,

understand that Parmatma is very subtle,

you will need to devote single mindedly, abondaning everything else to see this.

When you see this, your mind will become sehj(adol), That parmatma is existing

Parmatma, makes successful millions of people in one instant.

Gurdev, kirpa karo, parmatma milao.

Gurdev do kirpa on us, so we meet Parmatma.

Vaahiguroo, make us understand your hukam, make us obedient to you.

Gurdev Nanak Sahib is saying,

Gurmukha, continously devote yourself to the praises of parmatma, remember parmatma single mindedly,

then your mind will accept hukam of Parmatma with love.

Satguru ji, Bhula chuka de maafi.

vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, vaahiguroo jee ki fateh

guroo roop sadhsangat ji, guroo saroop khalsa ji,

Satguru Arjan Sahib ji has done kirpa on us, let us go in the sanctuary of Satguru ji, by enshrining Guru ji's updesh within our heart. Satguru ji fulfills all wishes of his humble devotees.

bilaaval mehlaa 5.

Bilaaval is the raag of happiness. There are two meanings of Bilaaval, one outer meaning, and one hidden meaning.

Kathakar, is now talking about a recent news article, degrading Dasam Granth Sahib ji, He is saying that those ppl whose minds, thinking is filthy, they will talk only filth, they do not see the gems, or the virtues of Dasam Granth Sahib jee. The ones who are seeking virtue, Those who are seeking , who are thinking truth, they will see truth in it.

Regarding Interpreting Dasam Granth Sahib ji, The Kathakaar is giving an example of three people, who are hearing a black titar (Partridge)

black-partridge.jpg

All three of them, decide to tell what the titar is actually saying,

The first one, whose mind is involved in cooking at all times, says, kala titar is talking about salt and water.

The second one, who used to do a lot of sports, says to the first one, you are wrong, it is actually saying, eat a lot of desi butter, get strong, do exercise.

The third one, is saying, you both are wrong, because the kala titar is not going to eat to get strong, to do wrestling.

Both of them agreed that its true.. Then they asked what do you think about what its saying?

third one said, "sacrifice to your creation, O Lord"

Now, as we see from the above, noone understands the true language of kala titar, but all of them are interpreting according to their own thinking. As they have thier mind, so do they think according to that. This is the case of so many ppl who try to interpret Dasam Granth Sahib ji. When there is no filthy thinking, then only can we see the true teaching.

Kathakaar now giving another example,

ਅਜੁ ਨ ਸੁਤੀ ਕੰਤ ਸਿਉ ਅੰਗੁ ਮੁੜੇ ਮੁੜਿ ਜਾਇ ॥

अजु न सुती कंत सिउ अंगु मुड़े मुड़ि जाइ ॥

aj na sutee kant si-o ang murhay murh jaa-ay.

This night, I did not sleep with my Husband Lord, and now my body is suffering in pain.

ਜਾਇ ਪੁਛਹੁ ਡੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਤੁਮ ਕਿਉ ਰੈਣਿ ਵਿਹਾਇ ॥੩੦॥

जाइ पुछहु डोहागणी तुम किउ रैणि विहाइ ॥३०॥

jaa-ay puchhahu dohaaganee tum ki-o rain vihaa-ay. ||30||

Go and ask the deserted bride, how she passes her night. ||30||

Above you see the "word meanings"

Kathakaar is saying that the above inner hidden meaning is not related to "bodily pain".

Fareed ji is saying, this night I didn't remember, think of my Lord, and I feel the suffering of this longing to remember.

What would be the condition of those people who never remember thier Lord?

Kathakaar is saying, this is two different meanings.

Raag Bilaaval, is a unique raag among raags. But the main purpose of Guru Granth Sahib ji's bani is to unite the soul with Parmatma.

A parrot that is within the nest, has no fear of the cat.

ਸੂਆ ਪਿੰਜਰਿ ਨਹੀ ਖਾਇ ਬਿਲਾਸੁ ॥

सूआ पिंजरि नही खाइ बिलासु ॥

soo-aa pinjar nahee khaa-ay bilaas.

the cat cannot eat the parrot in its cage

The inner meaning of this is, the soul which is under the protection of Parmatma, has no fear of messenger of death.

This is what bilaaval raag is like, the words in it have inner hidden meanings.

ਕਰੁ ਧਰਿ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਥਾਪਿਆ ਨਾਮੁ ਦੀਨੋ ਦਾਨਿ ॥

करु धरि मसतकि थापिआ नामु दीनो दानि ॥

kar Dhar mastak thaapi-aa naam deeno daan.

Placing His Hand upon my forehead, God has given me the gift of His Name.

Kathakaar is saying, we have never seen the five fingers of God, nor have we seen his hand, then how do we know the hand of God?

mastak - forehead

Jyotish vidya / Astrology says that the destiny of a person is written on his mastak.

When a person goes and bows his head in front of the Satguru ji, then his destiny will be changed. Destiny will be changed, when the vichaar/Thoughts of that person will change. When the way of thinking of that person will change.

When one contemplates Guru ji's bani, which changes the mind, the way of thinking. A person will do good deeds when one comes in the sanctuary of Satguru ji.

kar Dhar mastak thaapi-aa naam deeno daan.

naam is singular in above line. Only one naam there is. Why is it singular?

In islam, they believe in three, Khuda Allah, Prophet Mohammed, and Satan.

In hindu faith, they believe in brahma, vishnu, mahesh, Whenever a hindu remembers two names. like Jai Sita Raam, Jai Radha Krishna, Lakhsmi Narayan. If they worship Krishna, they first worship Radha.

But in Sikhi, We only remember naam of the one Powerful God of all. Guru ji unites us with the Supreme Lord.

Satguru ji didnt ask us to worship any other.

Satguru ji and Parmatma are one.

On whom, Parmatma has done kirpa, they are given the gift of naam.

When we do devotion of Parmatma, without seeking anything in return. Parmatma will do kirpa.

ਸਫਲ ਸੇਵਾ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਕੀ ਤਾ ਕੀ ਨਹੀ ਹਾਨਿ ॥੧॥

सफल सेवा पारब्रहम की ता की नही हानि ॥१॥

safal sayvaa paarbarahm kee taa kee nahee haan. ||1||

One who performs fruitful service for the Supreme Lord God, never suffers any loss. ||1||

These day there are so many people who we do work for, companies, etc, so many people who think they are in authority. So many bosses etc.

Satguru ji is saying, that the Lord of all, is Parmatma, do service for Parmatma, and never will you suffer any loss. Parmatma is the highest of the high.

Kathakar is now talking about the facial hair women have, and thinking to be beautiful, they shave it. Kathakaar is saying if women are going to shave their facial hair, then it is a mistake of Parmatma, Parmatma must have been wrong to give that to women, We are proving Parmatma wrong, Saying this is not right, and shave the facial hair and do fashion.

Parmatma is never wrong, we are always wrong.

There is one traveller who got tired, and on the way, sat underneath the shade of a tree which had very tiny fruits, The traveller started thinking to himself, what did Parmatma do here, this tree has useless tiny fruits. While he was thinking this, one tiny fruit fell on his head. Then he thought to himself, Parmatma is right in making it small, if it would have been big, i would have got hurt, when it fell.

If we ask fashion, or to be beautiful from parmatma, Then what have we achieved in that? We only get more engaged in corruption and sin. Will one think of reading Jap ji Sahib paath or be attached to maya corruption?

Whatever parmatma has done, and is doing is always correct. Humbly accept and know that our own good is known only to Parmatma.

Kathakaar is now saying, that some ppl worship gods and goddesses, but they wont get liberation from that.

Satguru ji is saying, Rewarding is that service to Paarbrahm Parmatma, through which we are earn the true profit.

ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਰਾਖਤਾ ਭਗਤਨ ਕੀ ਆਨਿ ॥

आपे ही प्रभु राखता भगतन की आनि ॥

aapay hee parabh raakh-taa bhagtan kee aan.

God Himself saves the honor of His devotees.

We say that Parmatma, make us meet those, by meeting those we remember you. Give us such company.

bhagtan - is a plural word for devotee - devotees

Those devotees live in the fear of Parmatma, they are protected, their honor is kept by Parmatma.

ਜੋ ਜੋ ਚਿਤਵਹਿ ਸਾਧ ਜਨ ਸੋ ਲੇਤਾ ਮਾਨਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

जो जो चितवहि साध जन सो लेता मानि ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥

jo jo chitvahi saaDh jan so laytaa maan. ||1|| rahaa-o.

Whatever God's Holy servants wish for, He grants to them. ||1||Pause||

Kathakaar is talking about a patanjal Shastar, that there is one type of concentration exercise that they just focus their eyes on a blank screen of wall, their eyes get tired and tired. Kathakaar is saying that when they do this, they try achieve concentration of the mind, when the concentration of mind is acheived they are able to throw down birds flying in the sky. This is the only thing gained from that.

Those who have come in the sanctuary, Those are pleasing to parmatma, Those who remember thier Lord, their every desire, wish is fulfilled.

ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਚਰਣਾਰਬਿੰਦ ਜਨ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੇ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ॥

सरणि परे चरणारबिंद जन प्रभ के प्रान ॥

saran paray charnaarbind jan parabh kay paraan.

God's humble servants seek the Sanctuary of His Lotus Feet; they are God's very breath of life.

Parmatma loves the devotees. Those devotees who have gotten the kirpa of Parmatma.

Those devotees are so much loved by Parmatma, that Parmatma thinks them to be his own breath of life.

ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਭਾਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਮਿਲੇ ਜੋਤੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਮਾਨ ॥੨॥੨॥੬੬॥

sahj subhaa-ay naanak milay jotee jot samaan. ||2||2||66||

O Nanak, they automatically, intuitively meet God; their light merges into the Light. ||2||2||66||

Satguru ji is saying, while doing any work, or activity remember the Ik Parmatma, and you will easily sehaj merge with Parmatma.

Kathakaar is giving sangraand Hukamnama, As it is 12 February, it is the begning of month of Phalgun, 1st Phalgun Monday

BAARAH MAAHAA ~ THE TWELVE MONTHS: MAAJH, FIFTH MEHL, FOURTH HOUSE:

ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:

In the month of Phalgun, bliss comes to those, unto whom the Lord, the Friend, has been revealed. The Saints, the Lord’s helpers, in their mercy, have united me with Him. My bed is beautiful, and I have all comforts. I feel no sadness at all. My desires have been fulfilled-by great good fortune, I have obtained the Sovereign Lord as my Husband. Join with me, my sisters, and sing the songs of rejoicing and the Hymns of the Lord of the Universe. There is no other like the Lord-there is no equal to Him. He embellishes this world and the world hereafter, and He gives us our permanent home there. He rescues us from the world-ocean; never again do we have to run the cycle of reincarnation. I have only one tongue, but Your Glorious Virtues are beyond counting. Nanak is saved, falling at Your Feet. In Phalgun, praise Him continually; He has not even an iota of greed. || 13 || Those who meditate on the Naam, the Name of the Lord-their affairs are all resolved. Those who meditate on the Perfect Guru, the Lord-Incarnate-they are judged true in the Court of the Lord. The Lord’s Feet are the Treasure of all peace and comfort for them; they cross over the terrifying and treacherous world-ocean. They obtain love and devotion, and they do not burn in corruption. Falsehood has vanished, duality has been erased, and they are totally overflowing with Truth. They serve the Supreme Lord God, and enshrine the One Lord within their minds. The months, the days, and the moments are auspicious, for those upon whom the Lord casts His Glance of Grace. Nanak begs for the blessing of Your Vision, O Lord. Please, shower Your Mercy upon me! || 14 || 1 ||

guroo roop sadhsangat jee, guroo roop khalsa jee,

today's hukamnama by Satguru Arjan Dev jee in Bilaaval Raag is about leaving our own "I" haumai. In leaving our Identity, haumai is liberation itself. "I" is what keeps us away from God. If we abandon this feeling of I, then we have obtained liberation.

Everything was created by God, this body and soul, this mind belongs to God. To some God is merciful, and they have met him in Satguru ji. Satguru ji has given this advice, to abandon your own haumai, "It is I".

When we do some work, we have to think it is Satguru jee doing it, It is for Satguru jee you are doing everything. We are nothing but a tool of Satguru jee, in this way Satguru jee will take care of us in every way. Because whatever we do in this world, our mind is with Satguru jee. It will merge with Satguru jee.

In hindu Dharma, there is this notion of three worlds, trilok. In muslim dharma, there is notion of fourteen worlds, and that God resides in the 7th sky, In hindu dharma, there is this notion of that Vishnu is also the creator, and destroyer, and that Vishnu is the God, who has his seat on the thousand headed sepent. And muslim dharma believe in Allah having his seat in the 7th sky, and they worship Prophet Mohammed.

Although in Guru Granth Sahib jee, we see words like Triloki, and fourteen worlds, this is only for the understanding that God is present everyehwere. Satguru jee has condemned all these notions that God is Vishnu, or sitting on the thousand headed serpent, and that God is only in the 7th Sky.

Satguru jee has said, God is everpresent everywhere, with everyone, in all of time. Let us singlemindedly, absorb the meaning of Today's hukamnama.

raag bilaaval mehlaa 5 dupday ghar 8

the word raag has two meanings.

1. The way to recite the shabad, as musical framework.

2. Love/Prem

Sach kahon sun leho sabai jin prem kio tin hee prabh paio.

In this Guru ji has not mentioned any hindu, muslim or any faith, This is a message to all. That God is only obtained through prem.

Kathakaar is now talking about how throughout history, various sages have told their disciples, that it is not you who does, but it is God who does everything through you. In this we way we do not acquire any further "karma".

As one sows, so shall one eat

If everything is sowed for God, through God, then we won't have to eat the fruit of it. whether Good or bad fruit. It is God's, this way, we acquire no more good or bad karma, and are liberated. Whatever we do we have to offer to God.

Kathakaar is now talking about a mahapurush Mansoor, who is asked three questions.

1. What is the limit of charity

2. What is the limit of love

3. What is the limit of renunciation

Mansoor was sentenced to death, because he used to say "Anhal Haq" meaning "Iam God" "Iam God"

same as "Aham Brahmasi"

Mansoor said " first let me feed you something, before we start discussion."

After the guest ate the food, Mansoor said, this is the limit of charity.

Guest said, " I do not understand, how can this be the limit of charity?"

Mansoor said, "Tommorrow, the hukamat(ruling authority), is going to hang me to death, and yesterday they gave me this last bit of food, I have not eaten this because my perishable body is going to die tommorrow, why should I waste this precious food on my perishable body, Im giving this to you, Its more useful to you, this is the limit of charity, I have nothing else with me."

The Guest understood this and accepted this as the limit of charity.

Mansoor said "Close your eyes and see something"

Guest closed his eyes, as requested by mansoor, and he saw Mansoor was lying dead, he screamed, out of seeing this sight.

When the guest fakir opened his eyes.

Mansoor said, "People think thier body will live longer, in this hope of living four more days or so, they are attached to this hope. But Mansoor said, those who are devotees of God, they have left their attachment to the body, they have renounced it long back, This is the limit of renunciation"

Mansoor said, "Tommorrow, do this for me, these people will hang me to death, be there at that place, and do not be late, and I will tell you the limit of love"

Tommorrow, The Guest fakir was there witnessing the sight.

Mansoor's both hands were cut and the blood that flowed out, he put it on his face, and all this time he said "Anhal Haq"

Next his both feet were cut off as well.

Mansoor told the guest fakir, O friend this is the limit of love, as a wife dresses for her husband wears red color, same way Im getting dressed for my beloved God with the red color of my blood on my face. I sacrifice my everything for God, this is the limit of Love.

this is meaning(2) of raag, prem, love.

Satguru Arjan Dev jee is doing kirpa on us, and blessing us with Today's hukamnama.

Parmatma is Ik, do not divide parmatma through many faiths/relgions. Parmatma has many names but is Ik.

worldly doors can close on us.

The open "oorha" in IK Oankaar is signifying, that the door of Parmatma never closes, parmatma is there forever for us.

Parmatma, These hands are yours, These eyes are yours, all is yours, everything is yours.

Iam nothing, everything that is, is yours.

Kathakaar is talking about Siropa, That some people used it as towel, and it is not meant to be used as a cloth, it is kirpa of Guru ji, and should be used only to cover the head, as a turban.

Kabeer jee is saying

our family, friends, relatives, They are all like birds on a tree, At night time (life) they all gather on the tree, During the day time(death time) they fly away, they never will meet again!

Parmatma is the doer in both the living body, and when the body decays during death, it's Parmatma causing it decay. It is because of Parmatma's light in the body, that the body lives. After the soul lives, it is doesn't have any form, It is still Parmatma in it, That does all. The wonder of Parmatma cannot be described.

The village is, till the dwellers are. When they dwell not, the village exists not.

Parmatma is pervading everywhere, all powerful cause of causes, why dont you remember Parmatma?

Who knows when Parmatma will take your life away?

Parmatma, is the king, Parmatma is also the subject people, Parmatma is all. Only Parmatma exists.

In summer time, we get kulfi, some are yellow, green, red, the child says, we want lal kulfi, pili kulfi. Just as there are assorted colors of kulfi for children, But they are all made from the same liquid, just different color. In the same way, someone is raja, someone is beggar, but all are one and the same, All is Parmatma.

Guru Amar Das jee your glory belongs to you alone, How can I describe your virtues.

Satguru ji is saying,

Don't do corrupt works, Don't try to decievie, Parmatma is within you.

Kathakaar is saying,

sometimes we see, that people in their parties at home, they spend extra money, but when it comes to parmatma's langar, they decieve by spending less.

Everything belongs to Parmatma, Parmatma is the giver, is the taker, is the doer of all.

Vaahiguroo jee, you are in all, You see yourself in all, Without you noone is. I m not, you are, all pervading.

Vaahiguroo jee, As is your hukam, As you do kirpa, so does this mortal realize.

Vaahiguroo jee, you are apaar, without limits you are

Meeting you, I have come to know this.

As a drop merges in the ocean, no difference in them remains.

Satguru jee do kirpa on us, we may merge in you.

Satguru jee bless us with the gift of your love.

But those sikhs did not give it to him, saying, this is for satguru jee only, not for you. They then proceeded with the honey to Satguru ji.

Upon reaching Satguru ji, the honey had insects in it, and was smelling bad. Satguru ji said, this is because you didnt feed my beloved sikh, Know it that between me and my beloved gursikh, there is no difference. Hearing this, they asked forgiveness and proceeded to give the honey to that gursikh as told by Satguru ji. Upon reaching the gursikh, the honey changed back to fresh fragrance honey.

When Baba Buddha ji requested some sikhs to do some kirtan, because he was thirsting to hear the beloved words of the Guru, the sikhs didnt do it, but instead they went to Guru Amardas ji, and started doing kirtan there, Guru Amardas ji, turned his backs on the kirtan doings sikhs.

The sikhs got confused, and asked for the reason, Satguru ji said, this is because in my beloved Baba Buddha ji and me there is no difference. When he had asked you to do kirtan, you didnt do.

The crowd, who were following the thief, Knocked on the door of Bhagat ji.

Crowd said, "Bhagat ji, there is a thief in the neighbourhood, did he come across here"

Bhagat ji, "Im not a thief, nor any leader of thief, Only Iam in my house, and my daugther and her husband are sleeping in this house"

Im drowning in this world, I came to devote myself to your naam, to your bhagti, but I have become filthy; kaami mai, krodhi mai, chaalak mai, ahaankari mai. I have not remembered you, please save me, Satguru ji.

King of Kings, Ocean of Mercy, Peace giving Lord, sweet your words, Satguru ji, you cure us of all fevers.

On Whom Satguru ji becomes merciful, that sikh receives Satguru ji's hukam.

Today's hukamnama is in Sorath raag by Guru Arjan Dev Maharaj ji. The first line of the hukamnama is relating to a fever, and the last two lines refer to Guru Hargobind Sahib ji, the son of Guru Arjan Dev ji, saved from the fever. In this hukamnama, Satguru ji is praising the Lord, for the fever of Guru Hargobind Sahib ji has been dispelled.

In the olden days, moslty sikhs came from the low castes. Satguru ji gave love to all. The higher castes of those time, committed many cruelties on the lower castes, Shudras, Untouchables. If any word of Veda, was heard by them, they would undergo torture, or if they said any word of dharma or religion, their tongues would be cut.

As the people of those times had so much fear of gods and goddesses and worshipped them for boons or cure, so Whenever someone caught a disease, they would say, "mata has taken over this person", meaning the goddesses has taken over this person, there is no cure, but to pray to mata/goddesses and get the cure of this. This phrase is also in the book, "mera pind"

In history texts, Guru Hargovind Sahib ji was about 3 yrs old, when he got the fever, the ppl said, he has got sheetala. meaning Goddess Sheetala has possessed the child.

If we look in the history texts, like Sooraj Granth, we will find our history has been distorted, by brahmans. For example, in Sooraj Granth, it is written for this particular incident, that Satguru Arjan Dev ji, performed durga pooja for the cure of Guru Hargovind Sahib ji.

But a sikh will know this as false as this does not concur with the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, They are two opposite directions. Our Satguru ji has given us hukam to worship the one Lord of billions of durga goddesses. So why will Satguru ji worship any goddess, Those stories relating to worship to goddesses in our history text of Suraj Granth is baseless.

Just like in Islam, the believers they think that there is nothing superior to Quran

in bible, it is written to kick a guest out, who doesnt have the bible teachings in their heart.

Just like in Hinduism, it is written to give superiorty to Vedas, when doubts arise, over texts in simritees, puraanas etc

Same way, in Sikhism, when the question, we have to give superiorty to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

Guru Arjan Sahib ji's son, Guru Hargovind Sahib ji was cured, by blessings of Akaal Purakh. Let us learn and absorb what Guru ji is going to tell us in Today's Hukamnama. But before, Let us all together say, Satinaam Vaahiguroo.

sorath mehlaa 5.

taap gavaa-i-aa gur pooray.

In Sorath Raag, Guru Arjan Sahib ji is telling us the fever of Guru Hargobind Sahib ji has been dispelled through worship of Akaal Purakh. Not through any worship of gods/devtaas goddesses/devis.

Poojaa Akaal ki, Parchaa Shabad ka, Deedar Khalsay da

The three types of fever are of mind, body, social. This body of five elements, one of the five elements is fire, when the temperature of this element goes high or too low, we get fever.

When there are quarrels in home, then there is anxiety in the mind. there is hatred, there is unrest. It is best to do simran.

When there were so many wars going on and cruelty of the mughal rulers. In the midst of this unrest, Satguru ji had given us the gift of Sukhmani Sahib ji, reciting it, all anxieties, pains, troubles, fevers are dispelled. There is no fire of kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahaankar, When there is simran of Parmatma, there is peace, contentment, love in the heart.

vaajay anhad tooray.

Through the grace of Akaal Purakh, the fever has been dispelled, Through Satguru ji's updesh, the one unstruck sweet melody of the soul is heard.

sarab kali-aan parabh keenay.

True peace, happiness can only be obtained in the presence of Satguru ji.

If we have think we can obtain peace and hapiness from outside?

Satguru ji is saying,

Gurmukh pyaray, It's your mistake. Peace can be obtained from simran, The destroyer of sorrow is the amrit naam of Parmatma.

Dukh Bhanjan Tayraa naam ji.

Sometimes we think if we change our place of living, if we move to a new house, or to a new city, or goto to a foreign country, we will find happiness there. Because We didnt find any happiness in this house, this place, this country.

Satguru ji is saying,

days chhod pardayseh Dhaa-i-aa. panch chandaal naalay lai aa-i-aa. ||4||

leaving own country, you wander in foreign lands, bringing along the five thieves with you.

days disantar bhav thakay tuDh andar aap lukaa-i-aa.

growing weary they wander through foreign lands and countries, but parmatma, you have hid yourself within.

Gurmukh pyaray, In whose heart, Parmatma resides even for a moment, is rid of all sorrow.

days disantar mai saglay jhaagay. khin rahan na paava-o bin pag paagay.

this country, foreign lands, All I have travelled, I cannot survive, even for an instant without the feet of my beloved.

Those who have accumulated loads of wealth are not happy.

Kathakaar is now giving an example about Jahangir, a mughal ruler. Jahangir once came to the famous court of the saint mian mir, to make a request for an ardaas to Allah, so that he can win the war in the south.

After saying this request, he gave a 1 ruppe coin to mian mir, but mian mir said, give this to some beggar, around, we have no need of this.

Jahangir went about to the saints gathered around mian mir, and offered it to everyone of them, but none of them took it, and all of them said, we have no need of this, give this to some beggar who needs this maya.

Then, Jahangir again came back to mian mir, and said "I couldnt find anyone who was willing to take this."

Mian Mir told him, "you have not understood it, who the beggar is? "

Jahangir became very ashamed, as he realized he was the one who was the beggar, begging for more maya, begging to make an ardaas, so that he wins the war in the south. But all the saints here are satisfied in the name of God.

Another example, when Guru Hargobind Sahib ji had camped near a place , and there was also jahangir camped nearby. One person mistankly went to Jahangir, and offered his honest earning infront, and said, to bless him with the peace, happiness of "parlok". But Jahangir, told him, I can give you wealth maya, kingdom in this world. But I cannot give you the happiness, peace of heavens. Then he said, You must be looking for Sachay Paatshaah Guru Hargobind Sahib ji, they are camped over there.

Quickly, the sikh got up, without fear, took his honest offering back and went to Satguru ji.

Satguru ji is saying,

Gurmukh pyaray, Those in whose house,there is less, those who have less belongings in this world, they are more happier.

When Kabeer ji's house was burnt, and all his belongings were also burnt along with it. Kabeer ji when he reached and saw that his house is burning. He noticed few things, that were still not burnt. Kabeer ji, said, take this also, take this also, this is yours, you forgot this Parmatma, and threw it in the fire. Kabeer ji, was unattached to anything.

Sukh is obtained in the presence of Satguru ji, In the simran of Parmatma.

kar kirpaa aap deenay. ||1||

Parmamta gives directly, not through any medium. Satguru ji has made our direct contact with Parmatma. Satguru ji has said. Iam the servant of the all pervading Lord, I have come to see this world drama.

these days, we goto religious people, and ask them to do ardaas for us. This is not right.

baydan satgur aap gavaa-ee.

This pain, anxiety, sorrow is dispelled through the grace of Satguru ji.

When we see things that others get,but not us, we should still be thankful to God for what we already have.

When a muslim priest who didnt have even shoes to wear, and used to pray five times a day, obey the rasool. But when he saw, another person who didnt do anything, but had more then him. He became filled with hatred. Later, when we went to masjid, and saw that a person, who had no legs, but was doing namaz and Thanking Allah. He became ashamed and realized his mistake.

Thank Satguru ji for everything we have.

Some Old ppl have said, "looking at the red happy face of others, we should not slap ourselves(through greed/jealousy) and make our face red."

sikh sant sabh sarsay ho-ay har har naam Dhi-aa-ee. rahaa-o.

sikh, sants, all are imbued with bliss listening to the updesh to Satguru ji. They do not worship water, sun, fire, or moon, they only worship Akaal Purkh.

It is the duty of sikh to daily do simran of Satguru ji. Be in the presence of Satguru ji, Absorb the teachings of Satguru ji.

jo mangeh so layveh.

What we need, we should ask from Satguru ji, absorb yourself in the presence of Satguru ji. Your needs/wants will be fulfilled by Satguru ji. No worldy person can fullfil your wants. Be in the presence of the complete Satguru ji, all others are incomplete, imperfect, they cannot fulfil your needs, Ask from Satguru ji what you need. Satguru ji is your mother, Satguru ji is your father, Satguru ji is your Divine Lord, Satguru ji is your Divine Beloved.

Satguru ji, is saying, if you ask for your needs from your one and only true support,

Then Parmatma will do mercy, and your wishes will be fullfilled.

parabh apni-aa santaa dayveh.

Parmatma gives his devotess, what they asked for.

har govid parabh raakhi-aa.

The fever of Hargovind Sahib ji has been dispelled through the mercy of Akaal Purakh.

Kathakaar is giving example, that the moon that shivji has adorned is impure itself, even when the moon tries to wash itself in the ganga. It is not washed of its sin. This impurity that we suffer from cannot be removed by any devi/devtay. They cannot give us anything.

jan naanak saach subhaakhi-aa. ||2||6||70||

subhaakhi-aa - saying, ucharan

Satguru Nanak is saying this true words, through worship, through simran of one All pervading Lord, all your sorrows and pains will be removed.

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee ki fateh

Ocean of mercy, King of Kings, Lord of all, Sweet spoken, Satguru ji has blessed us with hukamnama updesh.

On that person, upon whom the Lord does kirpa,that person recieves updesh(true advice) from Satguru ji.

Satuguru ji is saying, that our relatives, friends, parents, spouse, they are not our true companions,

and will not be our support in the world hereafter. They will not go along with us in the world hereafter.

In the world hereafter only Satguru ji, will go with us, and is our only companion, our support.

When we will go into the house of God, dargeh of Parmatma, then if we don't have good virtues in our bag, then we will not receive honor, we will be neglected.

Dharmraj, the judge of good and bad actions of the world, also says those who have gathered virtues in their bag, will obtain honor.

Parmatma, is with us at all times. In your mind, you are thinking of your relatives and friends, but none of these will go with you. You will be responsible for your own actions and deeds, none of these will support you in the world hereafter.

Kabeer ji says, That family who you think as your own, for that wealth, for the sake of relatives, you are collecting it, they will not go with you.

Wakeup sleeping soul and start gathering virtues in your bag.

When maya comes, ahaankar increases, when maya leaves, sorrow increases.

Dont seek the pleasure of maya.

Absorb yourself in the peace of Parmatma's naam. It will stay with you here and hereafter.

Let us absorb in the updesh of Hukamnama, Satinaam Vaahiguroo

Satguru Arjan Dev ji has blessed us with today's hukamnama in Dhanasaari Raag.

Hindus, Muslims say, Parmatma lives only in Mecca, Jagannath temple etc. Or Parmatma lives in the sky.

Satguru Gobind Singh ji has said,

Some bow towards west, some east;

present everywhere, all pervading, is Parmatma.

Jin Prem Kio tin hi prabh paiyo

Satguru Tegh Bahadur Ji has said,

Why go and search for Parmatma in forests?

Everpresent with you, is Parmatma.

Someone asked a sufi sant,

"If Parmatma is in the heart? How to obtain Parmatma?"

sufi sant said,

"We will tell you later, now Let us go and take bath in the river first"

When that person went to take a dip in the river, the sufi sant, put his hand on the head, and did not let him come out, just when that person was on his last breath. The sufi sant, took off his hand, and brought him out.

that person said,

"If you did not want to tell me about Parmatma, why are you drowning me to my death?"

Sufi sant said,

"When you were in the water, where you thinking about your family or relations or anyone?"

Person said,

"No, I was only thinking about saving my life"

Sufi Sant said,

"When you think of only Parmatma, and noone else, you will find Parmatma, devote yourself to Parmatma"

Ramakrishna after hearing clever arguments on the proof that parmatma does not exist from a person said

"I believe more in Parmatma now,

after hearing such intelligent arguments,

such a clever person like you,

who could have created you"

Just as in forests, fire is unseen.

Just as in clouds, rain water is unseen

Parmatma is in all.

All is Parmatma, Without Parmatma is noone.

Sabh Gobind Hai, Sabh Gobind hai, Gobind bin nahi koi.

Speak sweet words to all, Parmatma is in all.

Whereever I look, there I see you Parmatma.

Don't differentiate anyone based on color or appearance, or judge beauty by color or appearance, but by virtues in Guru Granth Sahib ji.

Parmatma never was or will be separate from us, do simran of Parmatma. Know Parmatma as the eternal one.

Those pleasures which pass away with the blink of an eye, in a instant are trivial, Don't seek those, but seek the bliss Parmatma's simran.

Paramatma is sustaining, nourishing everyone by giving them food, and does not differentiate if someone is muslim, sikh, hindu, good or bad, virtue or no virtue. Parmatma's supplies never run short. With each and every breath, Parmatma is taking care of his creatures. Parmatma cannot be decieved, cannot be cut/hole, Parmatma is infinite, Great, high is the form of Parmatma.

Rememembering wondrous Parmatma, we dwell in bliss, filled with wonder.

Satguru ji, Bless this beggar with such understanding to remember you all times.

Iam a sacrifice to your devoteees , who remember you, bless me with the dust of those devotees, so I stay in humility.

Meeting the Guru, Nanak understands; He sings only Your Praises forever, O Lord. ||4||4||

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee ke fateh

Guru roop sadhsangat jee, Guru roop khalsa jee. If we think of the worldy religions, then in total there are about 350. Where there would have been universal appeal for them, but they are narrow within themselves. For example, the world of islam, think that Allah only understands and recognises Arabic language. Hindu Brothers think that in the house of parmatma, think only language of the shesh nag(thousand headed snake) is spoken only, Sehaskritee/ Sanskrit is only the language there.

Dhan Guru Nanak Sahib jee, did not confine dharam/religion inside any boundaries. Like a well, or a stream, river; its purpose is to quench thirst of the people; Same way the purpose of religion is give peace to people. For this reason, Dhan Guru Nanak Sahib jee went to different pilgrimage centres, went to mecca, went to hindu sacred places, and spread the True Teachings.

Satguru Maharaj ji went and met one islamic priest, and that priest recognised him as Satguru of all, and asked several questions to make his life successful. And Today's Hukamnama, is related to this, that Satguru Nanak Sahib jee went to different places and removed thier doubts.

When various people from various places came to Dhan Guru Nanak Sahib jee, then Guru ji, removed their doubts by teaching them the truth by giving examples of their own regions/cultures.

For example, one musalman, asked Guru Nanak Sahib jee several questions. The very first question he asked was.

1. What is the real name of God?

When we read in the various scriptures we see several ways that "name" has been defined.

One is a relational name (for example, sita raam,from ramayana), one is of the caste name,( for example raghu vir raam, raghu is a caste dynasty).

But our Gurus did not follow this system, and gave us the name "Vaahiguroo". Vidvaans, have done 3 meanings of the word Vaahiguroo.

Vahiguroo - One who gives inspiration, One who is wondrous form achraj saroop, and Bismaad roop form

In Today's hukamnama, Gurdev used the very first line, which is resembling the achraj saroop.

According to Snatan Dharma, Brahma is considered the creator, vishnu the nourisher.. In Hindu Purana's , there is a story that Brahma was born from the navel of Vishnu, Then the doubter is thinking, if Brahma is born from the navel of Vishnu, then from where is Vishnu born?

Guru Nanak Sahib jee has said that there is only one God and there are millions of Brahma's and vishnu's.

In Jaap Sahib, we read daily, it's sacred words, Akrita Krit hain. Meaning, Parmatma is not created.

O Parmatma, you are wondrous, my mind is in love with you, seeing your beautiful creation.

deen dunee-aa ayk toohee sabh khalak hee tay paak. rahaa-o.

deen - heavens, beyond this world.

dunee-aa - this world

Khalak - people, world

Different languages have different meanings of the same word, in this line.

In arabic / Paak - pavittr, pure

In sanskrit / Paak - Kitchen, rasoi

In punjabi /paak - flthy bad blood

We have to know what Gurdev is saying, and use that appropriate meaning for paak.

Parmatma, you the Lord of this world and the worlds beyond, remaining among the (filth)people of this world, You are pure, pavittr.

For example, a lamp's work is do give light, it can be used by a priest in a temple, or by prostitute in her home, the priest does good work with it, whereas the prostitute does filth, using the light of the lamp. But the lamp is neither pure nor good.

For example, the duty of sun is to give light, it falls equally on the muddy pool of water, it falls equally on a Gurudwara, Its purpose is to give light.

Such is parmatma forever pure among the filth of this world.

Guru Amar Das ji, when he was young in his earlier age, before becoming Guru, one time while he was sitting, a hindu astrologer by chance noticed padam rakha, the fortune line on Guru ji's foot, and bowed to Guru ji, and said, Baba ji, you will one day have the canopy over your head. You will be the Lord of the three worlds. Guru Amar Das ji, said this is good thing, that you have told, tell me what gift you want? the Astrologer said, Not right now Baba ji, When the time comes I will ask you.

Later, when Guru Amar Das ji, became the Guru and established the city of Goindwal, and had a great following, lot of people came and the news spread to that astrologer. The astrologer came to the court of Guru ji, he couldnt control his laughter also, because his prediction turned true, Guru ji also recognised him. Guru ji asked, Pandit ji you have come, ask for your gift. But Guru ji said, be thoughful of what you ask for, if you want worldy gifts, or gifts for beyond this worlds. Astrologer, said Guru ji, I do not want to beg from people's door to door for worldy things, Guru ji do mercy on me, give me both the gifts of this world and the next, the world beyond. Guru ji did mercy, and fulfilled the wish of that pandit.

Same way, in this line of Today's hukanama, Guru ji is saying, that the one Parmatma controls all matters not only in this world, but also in the next world, the world beyond. The one Parmatma is present in both this world and worlds beyond this world, present among the world,people of this world, you are pure.

khin maahi thaap uthaapadaa aacharaj tayray roop.

As you wish, You destroy and create in an instant. You are wondrous O Parmatma.

In an instant, you convert a king to a beggar and a beggar to a king.

In an instant, you convert a desert to rainforests.

O Lord, your works are wondrous. They are awe-inspiring.

You have infinite forms, from one drop of water, a creature is born, you created eyes for them to see, ears to hear.

wondrous is your works. Who can desrcibe your wondrous acts?

In this world, all around is darkness, O Parmatma, you are the light in it. You are the owner; Lord of all creation.

You never get angry on us, even though we are involved in filth, you are forever merciful on us.

Just like a mother who is merciful to his child, even though the child can be bad. But the mother is always forever merciful.

Bhai Sham Singh ji is saying, that the tree of peepal, or anyother tree provides shade from the sun, But the shade of mother is even deeper.

Those who remember you, Lord, they do not go to hell, those who remember you with the rising sun, and the setting sun, they do not goto hell.

In quran, muslim dharma, there are four angels, one of them azraael which takes the soul out of the body, at the time of death.

Satguru ji is saying, you would not be afraid of Azraael, the angel/messenger of death. He will become your friend, if you remember God's name. He will become your servant, if you remember , if you take the support of the Lord.

Kathakar is now saying that we should not add extra, our own words in the ardaas.

Like

Teg Bahadar Simriye Ghar Nau Nidh Awai Dhaai Sabh Thaaeen Hoi Sahai

Some ppl they add Guru Teg Bahadar Simriye, or hind ki chaddr, Teg Bahadar Simriye..

We should not modify the words of Guru Gobind Singh in the ardaas. As Guru ji has written. We should read it.

All sins are destroyed by having your blessed sight. This world is only temporary place. True place, True home is your name. True peace will come from your Name.

Only praise the one Lord.

O Parmatma, unite me with the true congregation which have not forgotten you, remove my pride, make me the servant of your servants, who have not forgotten you. Bless me so that I can sing your praises before sunrise. Bless me with the sight of those beings who have not forgotten you. So that I may forever sing your praises with every breath. May I forever earn the bliss of your name.

Parmatma, you are forever with me, you never leave me. You are the treasure of peace. I have expereinced all sort of joys, but O Parmatma, the joy that is in meeting you, that joy is not found in any other thing. That person is fortunate who remembers you. Those souls are married to their Lord, in their hearts is eternal peace bliss.

forgive any mistakes,

Satguru Arjan Dev ji has blessed us with pure and holy hukamnama.

Satguru ji is saying, your family, relatives, friends, children and all people you meet they are only there for the present worldy considerations and needs, they will not in any way support you in the world hereafter, you will be alone.

Satguru is your sole supporter, establish all relations with Satguru ji. None other will go with you. Know that this world is a dream.

With humility, pray to Satguru, empty your heart, know that you have nothing/noone other then Satguru ji.

Let us read and contemplate by Satguru Arjan Dev ji, Todays Hukamanma in Raag Soohee.

Here is a brief description about Raag Soohee.

"Soohee is an expression of such devotion that the listener experiences feelings of extreme closeness and undying love. The listener is bathed in that love and genuinely comes to know what it means to adore." - Prof Surinder Singh

Being away from home. The soul being away from the House of Lord and the joy of meeting the true husband.

Satguru is my perfect beloved companion, like my Satguru, another one, I know not,

noone i have, Without Satguru, noone i know, other then Satguru, O my Lord.

All worldy friends and companions only come to go, at the moment of death, all leave everyone.

my mind; why seek their company? They all will leave you in the end.

in thier company, what have I gained? What will I gain?

I seek the sanctuary of only one that exists. the form of all, The one father, mother, lover and beloved of all beings.

Guru Nanak Sahib ji, has recited the Shabad about our true relatives,

If you want to read, its at the bottom of ang 151.

More dear then all, is my beloved Satguru ji

Kathakaar is telling about a sikh of the Guru, who was holding the nishaan sahib of Satguru ji,

So much love, that when the knees were cut, the nishaan sahib was still held with the mouth.

naanak so parabh jee-a kaa daataa pooraa jis partaapai. ||2||

Parmatma is the life of my life, Says Nanak, Perfect is the glory of Parmatma.

Listen my mind, Parmatma is the essence of your life.

Parmatma is the destroyer of sorrows, of pains; is the treasure of virtues.

The devotees, the lovers of Parmatma, they have Parmatma in thier control, they are Parmatma's beloved.

did kirpa on one family, and the birth/gender prediction machine told they will have a particular gender child,

but the mother wanted the opposite gender, and did ardaas to Guru ji, the ardaas was granted and Guru ji's power

proved the machines wrong.

sant charan gur sayvaa laagay tinee param pad paa-ay raam.

Join yourself with the updesh of Satguru, serve the saints of Lord, and you will become the very form of Parmatma.

Pride and ego will vanish, and you will be absorbed in the Lord.

From where you came, To whom you belong, Like the river flows into the ocean,

so will you absorb, become one with your owner Parmatma.

naanak naam niranjan japee-ai mil satgur sukh paa-i-aa. ||3||

kaho naanak kaaraj saglay pooray gur charnee man laa-ee. ||4||2||5||

Says Nanak, Those devotees have all their works completed, who have attached themselves to the Guru's feet, shabad of Satguru.

What is the state of those ? who have attached themselves to Satguru's feet?

In Davygandharee, Satguru Arjan Sahib jee is telling us.

Satguru ji, your words are ambrosial nectar for me.

Kathakaar is telling of a story about, when a sikh, used to turn his back during certain lines of gurbani kirtan. When asked why you are doing this? the sikh said, this is because some lines of Gurbani are slapping me in the face, thats why i turn my face.

But Those who are one with parmatma, all words of Satguru are sweet

Kathakaar, is saying, all words of Satguru are ambrosial sweet to that one, who is attached to Satguru's feet.

For them, Parmatma is very sweet, enticing to the mind, peaceful, blissful.

They need not dynasties, or kingdoms, they need not liberation of any type.

All they need is to be attached to Satguru's feet, to Satguru's shabad.

Those who are melted in love of God, are those who have become one with Parmatma,

They say "Satguru ji, Do mercy on me, I only want to be united with your feet."

All gods, goddesses they all thirst, they all seek the darshan/sight of Parmatma.

Im a beggar, I have come to your door, O Parmatma,

Beautiful Parmatma, my mind is attached to you.

You have carried me across the terrifying world ocean.

You have lifted me above births deaths.

Kathakaar, is saying join the satsangat, and sing the praises of Parmatma.

singing the praises of Parmatma, you will be carried across.

Those who sing, their lineage's family ancestory is also carried across.

On whom parmatma has done kirpa, they remember parmatma every moment.

eating, sleeping, working, they remember parmatma.

Parmatma is the protector of his devotees.

Who is not met through any dress or garb.

Singing beautiful songs, but they have ahankaar within.

In this way, Parmatma is not obtained.

Those who know the 4 vedas, who speak very sweet words, are intelligent, beautiful,

Still not met through any of your means and attempts.

Satguru ji is saying,

This gursikhi, thinner then the width of the hair, the path is sharper then the double edged sword, you will not cross across like this. Know that Parmatma is not met, until Satguru does kirpa, until Satguru does mercy on you.

Know that a beggar cannot get anything on its own, without the grace of the giver.

Pray to Satguru, for Satguru is the All powerful Parmatma, Lord of all,

Pray to Satguru, so that he does kirpa on you, and you can meet Parmatma.

Through Satguru ji's grace, the effort to meet Parmatma, we make.

Forgive any mistakes.

Ocean of mercy, King of Kings, Lord of all Satguru Tegh Bahadur jee has blessed us with pure, holy Hukamnama during the amrit vela hours from Sri Darbar Sahib, Sri Amritsar.

One cannot find Parmatma, through any dress or garb, saffron robes, or shaving the head. The mind has to be shaved of filth, not the head. A person does not change, by changing dress, but a person changes when his/her thoughts change.

Once a jogi, smeared in ashes, symbolizing that all world is false, all will be ashes, came to Satguru ji. His dress of smearing in ashes, symbolized that he has left all associations with the world and is detached from it.

That Jogi came and started talking with Satguru about various things, One of Guru's sikh was behind, doing the seva of chaur sahib. He was listening to the conversation, and everytime the Jogi spoke to Guru ji, that Sikh, used to imitate the Jogi, making fun of him. The Jogi, tolerated for sometime, but after sometime became very angry, and said, Satguru ji, look at this sikh of yours, he has no respect, when two Mahapurakhs are doing discussion, he is imitating me everytime. That jogi thinks of himself as a "Mahapurakh".

Satguru ji, asked the sikh, to explain what he was doing. The sikh said, Satguru ji, I was only seeing if this Jogi really has ashes within or fire of maya within. Satguru ji, your bani says,

antar agan baahar tan su-aah

Within is fire, outside is ashes

gal paathar kaisay tarai athaah

wearing a heavy stone around the neck, how can he cross the unfathomable ocean of life?

Satguru ji has said, by rubbing ashes on the body, one does not become one with parmatma.

Kathakaar is telling another one , about a gidar / Jackal who fell into water which had blue dye, so his skin color changed into blue.

One sherni/Lioness saw him and asked "who are you?"

The gidar replied, "Parmatma has sent me, and Iam your king"

Kathakaar is saying this is case with the sants these days, He goes on to say that word "sant" has been used four contexts by Guru Granth Sahib ji.

1. Sant, It is used for Parmatma

2. Sant, It is used for Guru Sahib ji

3. Sant, It is used for the Bhagats, whose bani is Guru Granth Sahib ji, like Bhagat Kabeer ji, Bhagat Namdev

4. Sant, It is used for SatSangat, that congregation of Gursikhs, like People gathering in Gurudwara with Guru Granth Sahib ji, that congrgation is also sant sang.

Kathakaar is saying It is not used for any single individual, but congregation.

Guru Sahib ji, used the word "Bhai" instead, like Bhai Gurdas ji,

Bhai Randheer Singh ji, Bhai Nand Lal ji .. etc..

Guru Sahib ji, used Bhai, we are all one, and our father is the one parmatma.

Today's False indivduals call themselves and advertise themselves as Sant, and tell us to renounce everything, eat only dal, whereas they themselves are living in big houses, Driving expensive cars, eating all food delicacies and telling the poor person, who just uses an inexpensive scooter, to renounce that as well.

If we look at the life of Guru Nanak Sahib ji, then we will see that Guru ji did not renounce anything, Guru ji has his house, has his own land, they did renounce maya, but they renounced it in a different way. It is by sharing with others. Vand Chakna.

Kathakaar is saying to be beware of people who call themselves Sants and not follow anyone but Satguru Granth Sahib ji.

Kathakaar is saying, we goto sadh/sant, to get peace in our busy lives, these sadh sant, have failed grade 5 in school, and they go out and become sadh sant.

Kathakaar is also saying, we never call a humble person wearing, pant shirt, "a sant", but when we see someone dressed up in Bana, and does not even know oorhaa airhaa, we readily call that one a sant, and start bowing to them, even though if that person is more corrupt. We are attached to dress more then the inner quality

Kathakaar is giving example of one incident in history, Satguru ji, when he went into a particular region to preach, where the dress code was different, In order to preach there, Satguru ji, in order to teach his sikhs an important lesson as well, dressed up in lungi as well.

Bhai Maan Singh ji, looked at Satguru ji, and said, you have become "tankhya"( not following the panth )

Satguru ji said, "Changing the outer dress, the person within does not change, But changes only when the mind within has become pure or corrupt"

Jaisa Des Taisa Bhais

As is the country, So is the dress.

As long as our soul has not reached inner spiritual heights, till then we are not pure, by wearing outer dress, nothing within will change.

Satguru ji, hunted a tiger once, and removed his flesh and put it on top of a donkey. The donkey seeing his tiger flesh, went hither and thiter destroying crops, thinking himself to be tiger, until its owner recognised his lost donkey, garbed in tiger skin.

Kathakaar is saying, when Guru Hargobind Sahib ji became the Guru, many sikhs started doubting him, because Satguru ji was not at all similar in lifestyle to the previous 5 gurus, Satguru ji's dress was also different, started wearing weapons, started going on hunting expeditions, ignored sikhs, but instead gave love to deciets like Painde Khan, Satguru ji was teaching us lessons which had to be taught.

Satguru ji did not call "Sant", Satguru ji, always has used "Bhai" / Brother. If we look at the history, we see the life of Bhai Mardana ji, who stayed his whole life with Guru ji, but Guru did not call him Sant, but "Bhai", his own Brother.

If we look at the 5 pyaras, who came out of the crowd of hundreds thousands, Satguru ji, did not call them "sant" but called them "Bhai", Bhai Daya Singh ji, Bhai Dharam Singh..

Kathakaar is then describing the history of Nanakana Sahib and how it was freed of the "Mahants" there, about some Individuals used to loot the people and abuse them.

Kathakaar is telling us to start doing Sehaj Path of Guru Granth Sahib ji, He is saying, very few are people who have read Guru Granth Sahib ji, from begninng to end.

In Today's Hukamnama, Satguru ji is saying, through outer dress or garb, you will not obtain parmatma. Let us absorb todays hukamnama in our lives.

Satinaam Sri vaahiguroo

Sorath mehlaa 9.

man ray gahi-o na gur updays.

In Sorath Raag, Satguru Tegh Bahadur ji is giving us hukamnama.

Sorath raag is a night time raag, feeling of motivation, Virtues of God.

9pm-12am

O my mind, you have not lived, you have not obeyed/listened/accepted(suni-a) Satguru ji's Teaching.

Satguru ji, has sacrificed everything for us, but we have not done anything for Satguru ji

If we cannot do anything for Satguru ji. If we cannot give anything to Satguru ji.

Then, atleast let us not put black marks in the name of sikhi. Let us not become alcholics and call ourselves sikhs, or engage in corruption and call ourselves sikh.

What does Satguru ji want of us? Does he want us to earn sins and return back to him??

or to do good deeds and follow the way he has shown us.

When a parent leaves us, the last words of his parent, that the child always does.

Have we followed the updesh of Satguru Gobind Singh ji?

Who is our Guru? Who do we follow? Who do we keep in our mind?

Maya or Satguru Granth Sahib ji?

Who do we give our love to?

We have to think about this more, and the great Sacrifices, Satguru ji has done for us.

kahaa bha-i-o ja-o mood mudaa-i-o bhagva-o keeno bhays. ||1|| rahaa-o.

Kathakaar is saying, We have become amritdhari, but what is the use, we still tell lies and do corruption?

What is the difference between non-amritdhari, who says lies, and one who is amritdhari, and says lies?

When the mind had to be shaved of corruption,Satguru ji, is saying what will Shaving the head do?

What will adorning the bana/garb do, when within is fire of maya.

saach chhaad kai jhoothah laagi-o janam akaarath kho-i-o.

Satguru ji, is telling what is saying truth, and what is telling lies.

When someone is suffering, and by your telling lies, that person becomes happy, that is good, even if you go into loss.

To understand what this really means, and which situation it applies to, Kathakaar is giving example

When some corrupt murderes are chasing a woman, and that woman trying to save her life and respect, finds a place to hide. She hides herself in a place, and we see it.

The corrupt murderes when they ask us, and if we tell "the truth", thinking of doing a great deed by telling "the truth", that she is hiding over there. Then there is no greater sin then this. This is the greatest sin.

Instead, tell lies, and save the life of the woman. This is what it means, to tell lies, and save someone lives.

Where someone benefits, where someone suffers, say those words, that will help that person, even if its your own loss.

when 1000 people will be fed, by your telling lies, when 1000 lives will be saved, by your telling the wrong information. That is good, merit, "pun".

You will have to find for yourself, and know from your own intuition where to say the lies, and where to say true.

Satguru ji, is saying,

leaving the truthful way, and attaching to corruption, this precious life is being wasted

kar parpanch udar nij pokhi-o pas kee ni-aa-ee so-i-o. ||1||

parpanch - decits, cheating, corrupt works, hypocrisy

doing filthy works, eating and then sleeping like an animal.

raam bhajan kee gat nahee jaanee maa-i-aa haath bikaanaa.

Not knowing the way of God's devotion, Sold in the hands of Maya.

urajh rahi-o bikhi-an sang ba-uraa naam ratan bisraanaa. ||2||

entangled in vice and corruption; and not recognizing the jewel of the Naam. ||2||

rahi-o achayt na chayti-o gobind birthaa a-oDh siraanee.

Wasting precious moments, thoughtless, not remembering Gobind, and life is uselessly passing away.

kaho naanak har birad pachhaana-o bhoolay sadaa paraanee. ||3||10||

Satguru Nanak, this person is forever making mistakes, please be merciful and wakeup this person.

Bless this person with your rememberance.

Hukamnama Katha Translation of Thursday 22/02/2007 - Ang 777

http://sgpc.net/hukumnama/index.asp

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa

Vaahiguroo jee ki fateh

Guroo Roop Satsangat ji, Guroo roop Khalsa ji,

Highest of the highest, greatest of the greatest is Guru Nanak Sahib ji, who is our protector. Fortunate we are to have Guru Nanak Sahib ji. Satguru ji is the perfect form of his teachings, who lived his teachings completely.

Satguru Arjan Sahib ji in today's hukamnama is saying that the greatest mercy done on us by Satguru ji, is of attaching us to the Eternal power, Parmatma. Those who have followed this path, they are witness to the unique bliss arising from attaching our consciousness with Parmatma, Those devotees have no shortcomings, no needs or wants.

Let us absorb today's hukamnama. Satinaam Vaahiguroo

soohee mehlaa 5.

har charan kamal kee tayk satgur ditee tus kai bal raam jee-o.

Satguru Maharaj became merciful, and has attached them with Parmatma. Their support has become Parmatma's lotus feet.

Kathakaar is saying about the word "charan kamal", lotus feet. Saying that Satguru Gobind Singh ji has explained this very well.

chit charan naam.

meaning attaching to name of Parmatma, is attaching one to the lotus feet of Parmatma.

har amrit bharay bhandaar sabh kichh hai ghar tis kai bal raam jee-o.

Kathakaar is talking about the meanings of "OM"/"AUM"

They represent the powers of Brahma, Vishnu, Shivji ( creator /preserver /destroyer)

Guru Nanak Sahib ji has blessed us, has joined us with the supreme power, controlling all these three.

ik sansaaree, ik bhandaaree, ik laa-ay deeban.

one creator (Brahma), one sustainer (Vishnu), one destroyer (Shivji).

Jiv tis bhaavai, tivai chalaavai, jiv hovai phurmaan.

But as Parmatma wishes, so do they act, as Parmatma ordains them.

Guru Gobind Singh ji has said about Krishna Avtaar of vishnu, "Parmatma, these are your messengers, to spread your glory, but when they came here, they called themselves Parmatma, but in reality, its your power who is behind all of it"

In this way, Guru Nanak Sahib ji has joined us with the one and only Parmatma behind all dieties.

Before Gurdev came, Someone used to worship durga, hanumaan, or fire god.

Gurdev ji is saying,

Worship the one, whose treasures are overflowing.

Everything is in the house of Parmatma, Whatever any devotee asks from Parmatma, Parmatma gives that to his devotees.

Sabhnaa jeea ka ik daata so mai visaar na jaae

For all beings, there is one giver, may I never forget the one

baabul mayraa vad samrathaa karan kaaran parabh haaraa.

Many religions, they have termed parmatma as having a gender.

But in Guru Granth Sahib ji, it is said, we can not call Parmatma male, nor can we call Parmatma female.

Something's we cannot talk to our mother, because we are shy, or not feeling comfortable. then we talk our inner thought with our friends.

Guru Granth Sahib ji is so great, that everything that is written is true.

Parmatma, you are my mother, my father, my brother, and my companion. Noone can help me other then you.

When this Body has become old, then our relatives put food in our mouths, because our body is weak,

O Parmatma you are in those relatives, who is feeding us.

Parmatma, you are greater then everyone.

Parmatma, you are behind everything, you are the cause of all causes, whatever happens is your doing.

jis simrat dukh ko-ee na laagai bha-ojal paar utaaraa.

Gurmukh pyaria, remember Parmatma

Prabh kai simran, dukh jam nasai

Through Parmatma's Rememberance; sorrow, pains, messenger of death are dispelled

Prabh kai simran, kaal parharai

Through Parmatma's Rememberance; death is eliminated.

By Remembering Parmatma, you will never suffer any sorrow or pains and You will cross over the world ocean.

Some people will doubt then, looking at the lives of great gurmukhs,

like Bhai Mani Singh and say then

Why were the body parts of Bhai Mani Singh ji, cut one by one?

Why did Bhai Taru Singh ji had his scalp shaved?

Why did so many Gurmukh pyaray undergo so much suffering?

Satguru ji, Please clear these doubts.

Through Satguru ji's teaching, we rise above body consciousness,

Those who are attached to body only they feel pain and suffer.

Those who read Satguru ji's bani they rise above body consciousness, above moh mamta maya.

rising above, above all these, how can they suffer?

Unmoved, Unshaken was Banda Singh Bahadur ji, when his eyeballs were taken out with red hot iron rods

The Torturers asked, "Of what are you made? We have tortured you in so many ways, but you did not feel or react at all"

Banda Singh Bahadur ji replied,

"This is the difference between you and us, you are torturing our bodies, destroying them with your tortures, but we are not our bodies, we are unaffected."

"When Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji, made me his own "banda"/man/person, since then I have risen above this body. You are limited to Body, but Im not my body"

Kathakaar is saying, As we are attached to our bodies, this is the reason why we suffer in this world, this fevers, this sorrows, are attached to the body. We don't see our true eternal home and the eternal Parmatma.

Those who have read Satguru ji's bani, Parmatma has uplifted them above body consciousness.

aad jugaad bhagtan kaa raakhaa ustat kar kar jeevaa.

aad - begnning

jug - age/time

Jugaad - when one age/time ends and another age starts.

ustat - praising greatness

Parmatma is protecting his devotees since the begining and throughout the ages, Praising Parmatma the devotees live.

Listen my mind, praise, adore the one Parmatma in your mind.

naanak naam mahaa ras meethaa an-din man tan peevaa. ||1||

Baba Fareed ji, used to adore eating sugary food. They were very fond of it.

Kathakaar is telling us, to try and drink the "kachaa"/unripe* milk of a cow. It is very sweet.

Baba Fareed ji, is saying I have eaten all the sugary foods, sweeter then the sweetest is Parmatma's naam.

Honey is sweet, But nothing is comparable to the name of Parmatma.

Says Nanak, night and day, The body and mind drinks the amrit ras of Parmatma.

har aapay la-ay milaa-ay ki-o vaychhorhaa theev-ee bal raam jee-o.

Those who remember Parmatma, Parmatma merges them in his own being.

We separate from our relatives, and friends again and again.

But the devotees never again separate from Parmatma

Like a raindrop merges into the ocean,

Those whom Parmatma has merged into his being, they are never separated again.

jis no tayree tayk so sadaa sad jeev-ee bal raam jee-o.

Parmatma, Those who have your support, they live eternally.

Worldy rulers like akbar, jahangir, Shah Jahan(King World) come and go.

Bhagat Namdev ji was born in an ordinary family,

Bhagat Kabeer Ji was born in an ordinary family,

Your devotess. They are still remembered today.

tayree tayk tujhai tay paa-ee saachay sirjanhaaraa.

The sons of kings like akbar, they have inherited the rule from their fathers.

Parmatma, Your support, is gotten from you. You have given the gift of your name, to your devotees.

You have created the entire existence.

jis tay khaalee ko-ee naahee aisaa parabhoo hamaaraa.

How is parmatma? What are his signs?

Satguru ji is saying,

From the door of Parmatma, noone leaves empty handed. Whoever has got anything, they have got it from Parmatma, Everyone begs from the one Parmatma.

Kathakaar is giving example, of how a king who was dying of thirst, when he met a woodcutter along the way, asked for some water, the woodcutter gave him some water, and the king told him, you saved my life, Take this ring of mine and come to my court and I will give you rule and wealth of many villages*.

Kathakaar is now talking of how recently, during Basant, how so many kids and children spend 1000's ruppees on flying Kites.

One Mahapurakh, told a person, Take lesson from the kids, and rememeber Parmatma.

person said, what do you mean ? How can these kids teach me about remembering Parmatma?

You see, when the kids fly kites high in the sky,

on one side, they tell their mothers, "O mother, send me the cup of tea upstairs, my kite is flying too high in the sky, I cannot come down;

Same time, he is talking to his neighbour friend, who is telling him, more higher, more higher let it go,

Same time, he is asking his freind to free more thread, kite is going higher.

But his attention is focussed on the one Kite.

Like the kids atention is solely on the kite at all times, but doing saying other things as well,

Same way you remember Parmatma.

Muslims they have to say their five prayers at set times of the day.

But Guru Sahib ji, has made it very easy for us, has told us,

Gurmukh pyara remember Parmatma whichever way you can,

while involved in your business work,

while walking, talking to others,

while doing any activity, you can remember the one Parmatma.

Muslims have so many strict regulations in remembering Parmatma,

they have to face the mecca while offering their prayer

they cannot talk, cannot be disturbed.

If someone crosses them in the front, then they think the prayer is rendered useless.

So much strictness there is.

Kathakaar is now going back to the story of the woodcutter, and the muslim king.

When the woodcutter reached the palace of the muslim king. The woodcutter did not know anything, was illiterate.

The woodcutter saw the king in a window, he was standing, and speaking something,

He asked the guard, what is the king doing??

The guard said, He is doing namaz/prayer, he is asking from Allah, Parmatma.

Hearing this, The woodcutter immediately started leaving to his home.

The King called back, "friend, I recognise, you saved my life, by giving me water, ask what you need? What can I do for you?"

Woodcutter replied, "I don't want anything from you, Because I have realized that you are a beggar and also Iam a beggar. I will ask from Parmatma. Why should a beggar beg from a beggar ? I will ask from that one, who gives you, from that one, who gives to all."

Parmatma, you give to everyone, of all, you are the one giver, all beg from you, Parmatma.

Kathakaar is saying, he read in a granth, about a muslim fakir/priest who was charitable, and wanted to feed someone one evening.

The muslim fakir, saw a person walking past his home, it was night time, and time for dinner.

The muslim fakir, called out, said, "O Brother, come and have food at my house tonight."

That person became happy in the heart, and seeing a plate full of good food, went to the house of the fakir.

When that person started eating food, and hardly half was eaten, then the muslim fakir slapped that person in the face.

The muslim fakir became angry and said to him,

"your an evil man, you did not even once thank Parmatma, not even once you took the name of Allah before eating your food, not even once you remembered Parmatma getting the gift of this food. Take the rest of the food, and get out of the house."

He left the house.

That night, when the muslim started doing his prayers, the muslim fakir heard "Akash Vani"/Voice from the Sky saying this,

"Today your prayers will not accepted. That person who came to your house to eat food, you slapped him out of the house because he didnt remember me, while eating food.

I have been feeding that person ever since he was born, I feed him, I give him, even when he doesnt remember my name. Whether he remembers me or not, I sustain him, I take care of him, Iam his creator.

What made you think that you were feeding that person, what gave you the authority to slap the person and consider yourself as the judge to let him eat or not. It was I who feed everyone. Im the one giver of all"

sant janaa mil mangal gaa-i-aa din rain aas tumHaaree.

mangal - song of happiness, joy, bliss

The devotees of Parmatma, forever sing the songs of joy and Thank the great Parmatma.

Kathakaar is saying about the son of Prophet Mohammed,

"The son and few of the disciples were going to haj in mecca,

On the first night of the journey, they didnt get any food.

The son asked them, let us thank God. Disciples thought, what thank? We didnt even eat today. Anyway they did Thank Parmatma.

The second day, same thing, the disciples revolted a bit, as they had no food for two days.

The third day, the disciples didnt thank Parmatma. But Prophet Mohammed's son, said to them, we should thank Parmatma, Only Parmatma knows our good. Who knows, we would have got into trouble if we were given something to eat."

Parmatma,

during the day, you support,

during the night, you support,

Without you, we have no support,

we are forever thankful to you.

You are our only care-taker.

You know the good for us all.

Day and night, your devotees, join to sing,

the songs of joy and thank you, Vaahiguroo.

safal daras bhayti-aa gur pooraa naanak sad balihaaree. ||2||

The beloveds of Parmatma, thier sight darshan is blessed to have. We are a sacrifice to them.

sammHli-aa sach thaan maan mahat sach paa-i-aa bal raam jee-o.

sammHli-aa - carefully take care of,

Like when the mother says to her child,

"Sambhal kai rakh lai jaib vich, gum na kari",

Carefully keep this in your pocket, don't lose it.

Satguru ji is saying,

Carefully keep, take hold of the Parmatma in your heart, remember Parmatma,

you will obtain honor, greatness and the eternal place.

This way you will meet the true Parmatma.

satgur mili-aa da-i-aal gun abhinaasee gaa-i-aa bal raam jee-o.

Meeting the Merciful Satguru, they sing the praises of the eternal Parmatma, I am a sacrifice to them.

gun govind gaa-o nit nit paraan pareetam su-aamee-aa.

Daily sing the greatness of Parmatma. Parmatma is our life and master.

subh divas aa-ay geh kanth laa-ay milay antarjaamee-aa.

Realize that blessed day, when your consciousness is attached to Parmatma.

That blessed day when Parmatma, has merged you in his ownself.

When your consciousness is attached to, The inner knower Parmatma.

sat santokh vajeh vaajay anhadaa jhunkaaray.

It is the belief of adhyatmik purushs, that when one single mindedly remembers Parmatma, continously,

then a state will dawn within, and the person will percieve ik ras Jaap/ one continous blissful Jaap of Parmatma going within,

which we call anhada jhunkaaray, which we call the panj shabad.

Those who absorb sat/truth and santokh/contenment within and remember Parmatma.

In them, one continous blissful Jaap Of Parmatma goes on.

sun bhai binaasay sagal naanak parabh purakh karnaihaaray. ||3||

Hearing the ik ras jaap/ one continous blissful jaap of Parmatma within, the mind, consciousness does not go out searching, It has become inwardly attached to Parmatma's simran. No fear is left in the mind. Remembering Parmatma, they have become one with the form of Parmatma.

upji-aa tat gi-aan saahurai pay-ee-ai ik har bal raam jee-o.

tat means essence, liberation, principle

When the Gurmukh pyaray realize the liberation, when they have realized that

parmatma,

you are here and there, everywhere

you are in this world and world beyond,

Then in the mind, no fear of anything is left.

For all is you, Parmatma

sabh gobind hai, sabh gobind hai, gobind bin nahi koi

all is parmatma, all is parmatma, without parmatma is noone

They remember Parmatma in this way.

barahmai barahm mili-aa ko-ay na saakai bhinn kar bal raam jee-o.

When the soul merges with Parmatma, then noone can differentiate them. Like water mixes with water.

bisam paykhai bisam sunee-ai bismaad nadree aa-i-aa.

bismad - blissful wonderful meaning who cannot described

The Gurmukh pyaray see that sight, which cannot be described,

hear that, which cannot be described,

The One Parmatma they behold wihin.

jal thal mahee-al pooran su-aamee ghat ghat rahi-aa samaa-i-aa.

Tuhi - You only

Parmatma undescribable,

pervading the water,

pervading all land

and the sky, in each and every heart, Parmatma, Tuhi Tuhi

None can describe this glory of Parmatma

jis tay upji-aa tis maahi samaa-i-aa keemat kahan na jaa-ay.

Tu Tu Kartaa Tu Huaa,

You, You Remembering, became You

From where it came, into that it has merged.

It is the eternal source of Joy, Bliss, peace and is obtained Not through wealth, worldly good or maya.

Only through the rememberance of Parmatma, it is obtained

jis kay chalat na jaahee lakh-nay naanak tiseh Dhi-aa-ay. ||4||2||

The One Parmatma, whose ways cannot be described. Says Satguru Nanak, Remember that Parmatma always. Keep your consciousness focussed on Parmatma.

Kathakaar is saying, due to the very long hukamnama, and less time, he could not go into detail of some complicated subjects and to do kirpa on him and forgive mistakes and may this essence become a part of our lives. Bhul Chuk di Maafi.

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vahiguroo jee ki fateh

ang 746 - Hukamnama Katha of Friday 23/02/2007

Vaahiguroo jee ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee ki fateh

guroo roop sadh sangat ji, guroo roop khalsa ji,

nirgun - un-manifested/No qualities/Attribute less

sargun - manifested/Associated with Quality or Attribute

nirgun and sargun are the two ways in which Parmatma has been worshipped. Islam mainly worshipped Parmatma as nirgun, But if we look at our hindu brothers, they worship Parmatma in sargun form. For example, their festival shivratri, when they reveal a idol of Krishna during midnight and say Krishna has taken birth now.

When someone asked Satguru ji, why dont we celebrate any festival like ram leela for Parmatma?

In Today's Hukamnama, Satguru Arjan Sahib ji, describes the nirgun form of Parmatma.

Satguru ji says, Parmatma is present in all forms, leela is celeberated of that person who comes and goes, but parmatma has been ever present in all forms and is also the nirgun, absolute one, without any attributes.

soohee mehlaa 5.

raas mandal keeno aakhaaraa.

Kathakaar is talking about the meaning of Partaal, which appears at the beginning of ang 746, for these three shabads.

raag soohee mehlaa 5 ghar 5 parh-taal

one meaning is for the Raagi Singhs, on how to do the alaap for it. Many Raagis they just sing the shabad in one taal, one tempo, but when there is parh-taal at the top, the indication is to sing it in different taals different tempos.

The other inner meaning, is that Parhtaal is telling us to go through different aspects of us, investigating our lives.

Kathakaar is now relating to the Bhai Nand Lal ji rehitnama, of how a singh is to take care of his surat/face, by tying the turban neatly one lad* at a time, doing Kanga two times daily.

Kanga/Wooden comb is one of the five gifts given while taking Amrit.

When you use kanga to comb your hair, 1,2,3,4,5, how many ever, hair come out, they break out on their own.

Kanga is telling us, to do the kangi of contemplation/veechar in your heart.

In the amrit vela, when you do kangi, vichaar in your heart, that today, I will do these good things, and abstain from the vikaars / corrupt things.

In the night time, before sleep, when you do kangi, count the vikaars you were able to comb out from the mind, and again make a resolution to do the same for tommorrow. Do the kangi of veechar, that today I did this corrupt thing, and I will not do again. I will abstain.

Kathakaar is saying, Abstain from corrupt activities, This is that investigation, inner meaning of Partaal.

aakhaaraa - stage

Kathakar is saying, our body is an Aaakhaaraa, in which two powers of good and evil are operating. The good power is of Bibek(Understanding/Discrimination), and the evil is of moh(Attachment).

Moh and Bibek are the chiefs of the two teams of good and evil.

Moh within us is saying that, "I will bind this person and prevent this person to go on the path towards Parmatma"

Bibek within us is saying that, "I will not let moh affect me, and I will become stronger when I take the medicine of Parmatma's Rememberance, Satguru ji's Shabad"

Satguru ji is saying,

This whole world is an aakhaaraa, good and evil are the two teams in it.

Some, evil, are looting the people, Some, good, are preventing that.

Somewhere there is more influence of moh, somewhere there is of Bibek, somewhere there is krodh/anger, somewhere there is of Daya/Mercy.

See this drama of the world, and realize only the one Parmatma in all of this.

saglo saaj rakhi-o paasaaraa. ||1|| rahaa-o.

paasaaraa - expanse, creation

Kathakaar is saying,

"In Bible, it says that on Saturday, the entire creation was created by Parmatma, and then on Sunday, Parmatma took rest"

Many scriptures it is written like that, and thats why they do holiday on Saturday.

But Kathakaar is saying, if we ask these humble people, "That when there was no creation, then from where did Saturday/Sunday come from?"

Satguru Nanak Sahib ji, has made the decision on this

thit vaar naa jogee jaanai rut maahu naa ko-ee.

The day and the date are not known to the Yogis, nor is the month or the season.

jaa kartaa sirthee ka-o saajay aapay jaanai so-ee.

The Creator who created this, alone knows.

Kathaakar is now talking about the story of creation of Adam in Bible, and how eve was created from the limb of Adam. Kathakaar is saying its very strange story if you read it completely, and next day maybe we will read about Parmatma did operation of Adam. These are all imaginations of the mind.

Satguru Nanak Sahib ji, has made the decision on this, in one line

Keetaa pasaao eko kavaao

You created the vast expanse with One Word

tis te hoe lakh dareeaao.

Hundreds of thousands of rivers began to flow

Rahaa-o - Satguru ji is doing kirpa on us with Rahaa-o

Rahaa-o - Rest Pause

baho biDh roop rang aapaaraa.

300px-BhaiKhaniya.jpg

Kathakaar is talking about the life of Bhai Kaniya ji, who when there was a war going on, Kaniya ji used to feed both the enemies and the sikhs. When someone complained to Guru Gobind Singh ji about this. Guru Gobind Singh ji questioned Bhai Kaniya ji.

Sabh mai jot, jot hai soi

In everyone is the light, you are the light

Kaniya ji said, "I see you in everyone."

Satguru ji said, "You have truly recognised me"

Parmatma is present in all, in all forms and colors. Parmatma is one, and also Parmatma is present in diverse colors in blacks, whites, brown, in men, women, children, birds, animals, plants, in all. No end can be found to this expanse, manifestion of Paramatma in all. Parmatma is without any limit.

paykhai khusee bhog nahee haaraa.

Parmatma is watching over all with joy. Parmatma does not tire of this.

sabh ras lait basat niraaraa. ||1||

Parmatma is enjoying all within all, while staying detached from all.

baran chihan naahee mukh na maasaaraa.

Parmatma has no color, no sign, nor any beard.

kahan na jaa-ee khayl tuhaaraa.

Vaahiguroo, your wondrous play cannot be described.

naanak rayn sant charnaaraa. ||2||2||45||

Satguru Nanak is teaching us humility. Leave our pride and seek / become the dust of the saints feet.

Hukamnama katha translation of Friday 23/02/2007

Forgive any mistakes

Vaahiguroo je ka khalsa, Vaahiguroo jee kee fateh
