Dukh Bhanjani Sahib

Recommended Posts

I have heard that its not actually a Bani, but a collection of shabads that bring happiness and are also protection shabads (rakhiya de shabad). But its so amazing and does bring loads of peace to the mind. Its said to be recited when one has a physical or mental ailment. Some people even say to keep water when you recite it and drink it after. And yeah, its best when recited at Amrit Vela.

ok enuff of my blabbing..someone shed more light (use energizer batteries in your torch)

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh


I have a question in regards to Dukh Bhanjani Sahib and that is, which Guru was it written by and what is the purpose behind it?



cybersing jee,

the purpose of this Bani as well as  any other, is only to get us purified in order to re-unite ourselves with Him, through the prem bhakti of the jaap of His paviter Nam, as seen in the following verses.

ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜੀ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ॥

Dhukh Bhanjan Thaeraa Naam Jee Dhukh Bhanjan Thaeraa Naam ||

दुख भंजनु तेरा नामु जी दुख भंजनु तेरा नामु ॥

The Destroyer of sorrow is Your Name, Lord; the Destroyer of sorrow is Your Name.


To some the question now may arise as per how should it be done, well, it should be done as much as possible in the early hours of Amrit Vela, otherwise any time is good to wash away our countless paaps, that is why Guru Jee facilitates us  by saying:

ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਆਰਾਧੀਐ ਪੂਰਨ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਗਿਆਨੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

Aath Pehar Aaraadhheeai Pooran Sathigur Giaan ||1|| Rehaao ||

आठ पहर आराधीऐ पूरन सतिगुर गिआनु ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥

Twenty-four hours a day, dwell upon the wisdom of the Perfect True Guru. ||1||Pause||

All time is auspicious time, if only He is remembered through His holy Name.


What other benefits happen, when clings on to His Lotus Feet through His Name?

Many beautiful  things happen of which we could not even imagine, for example :

ਜਮ ਕੰਕਰੁ ਨੇੜਿ ਨ ਆਵਈ ਰਸਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਉ ॥੧॥

Jam Kankar Naerr N Aavee Rasanaa Har Gun Gaao ||1||

जम कंकरु नेड़ि न आवई रसना हरि गुण गाउ ॥१॥

The Messenger of Death does not even approach those who chant the Glorious Praises of the Lord with the tongue. ||1|


Then one more most beautiful  thing:

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਮਨਿ ਭਇਆ ਪਰਗਾਸਾ ਪਾਇਆ ਪਦੁ ਨਿਰਬਾਣੀ ॥੪॥੪॥੧੨੫॥

Kahu Naanak Man Bhaeiaa Paragaasaa Paaeiaa Padh Nirabaanee ||4||4||125||

कहु नानक मनि भइआ परगासा पाइआ पदु निरबाणी ॥४॥४॥१२५॥

Says Nanak, the Divine Light has dawned within my mind; I have obtained the state of Nirvaanaa. ||4||4||125|


Waheguru Akal Purukh Himself comes to abide in our minds.

What else can one want? What else is left to ask for?


Stay blessed.
