Gurmat Sangeet- Basant Ki Vaar

November 11, 2005

Gur Fateh!

Basant Ki Var

“This is the shortest of the twenty-two vaars in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Guru Arjan has used a beautiful simile of the world in spring season to that of the human life and the great opportunity that it holds for us. It beautifully depicts what a life, lived by choosing Guru’s divine wisdom as a guide, has to offer. Within us, we all know how unsatiable, unsatisfactory, degrading and depressing is the craving for worldliness. Here is the way to complete liberation for us to choose!”
