Pachtaehga Mun, Ram Simar

October 30, 2006

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Over the last 10 days or so I have been listening to a recording that was done at a kirtan durbar in the UK . Prof Surinder Singh ji (Raj Academy) and his students very beautifully rendered three shabads. I particually liked the first one. The shabad is as below:

kbIru ] mwrU ]

Drm rwie jb lyKw mwgY ikAw muKu lY kY jwihgw ]
khqu kbIru sunhu ry sMqhu swDsMgiq qir jWihgw ]3]1]

This shabad in found on Ang 1106

The shabad is very simple and its easy to understand.

Basically Kabir Ji tells us that if you dont to sewa and simran and just waste yr time building materialist things you are going to go back empty handed and this life, the gift from god would go waste. He concludes by saying it is the Sadh Sangat that will help you do sewa and simran.

I am not sure if its just me but I have found a lot of Kabir Ji’s shabads very easy to understand in terms of the language. The message no doubt is profound.

Click here to download the shabads.

The other two shabads in this recording are very well rendered as well. They are Gur Ka Bachan Basay Jee Naa Lay in Raag Dhanasri and Ghol Ghumaee Lalna in Raag Thukari.

Have a blessed week ahead!
Guru Ang Sang!

    Bhagat Kabeer Ji’s bani is inspiring and humbling.

    ਕਬੀਰੁ ॥ ਮਾਰੂ ॥

    ਰਾਮੁ ਸਿਮਰੁ ਪਛੁਤਾਹਿਗਾ ਮਨ ॥
    ਪਾਪੀ ਜੀਅਰਾ ਲੋਭੁ ਕਰਤੁ ਹੈ ਆਜੁ ਕਾਲਿ ਉਠਿ ਜਾਹਿਗਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

    ਲਾਲਚ ਲਾਗੇ ਜਨਮੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ਮਾਇਆ ਭਰਮ ਭੁਲਾਹਿਗਾ ॥
    ਧਨ ਜੋਬਨ ਕਾ ਗਰਬੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੈ ਕਾਗਦ ਜਿਉ ਗਲਿ ਜਾਹਿਗਾ ॥੧॥

    ਜਉ ਜਮੁ ਆਇ ਕੇਸ ਗਹਿ ਪਟਕੈ ਤਾ ਦਿਨ ਕਿਛੁ ਨ ਬਸਾਹਿਗਾ ॥
    ਸਿਮਰਨੁ ਭਜਨੁ ਦਇਆ ਨਹੀ ਕੀਨੀ ਤਉ ਮੁਖਿ ਚੋਟਾ ਖਾਹਿਗਾ ॥੨॥

    ਧਰਮ ਰਾਇ ਜਬ ਲੇਖਾ ਮਾਗੈ ਕਿਆ ਮੁਖੁ ਲੈ ਕੈ ਜਾਹਿਗਾ ॥
    ਕਹਤੁ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਸੁਨਹੁ ਰੇ ਸੰਤਹੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਤਰਿ ਜਾਂਹਿਗਾ ॥੩॥੧॥

    Hope all of you who have font porblem will be able to view the shabad now.
    Yes I share this as a personal experience
    when I first started interacting with Guru( reading from SGGS) Kabir ji’s bani i found most touching and i could feel the pulse of it . But over the years I realized that its the same thing said in different ways.The most amazing thing is how your puzzles are solved by Gurbani. Guru has answer for all your questions… It may take some time but you will get the answer.
    May Guru Bless You !

    Bhai Sahib,

    I was wondering if u have any other shabads done by raj academy that you could share with us?

    I have heard they perform shabad hazare very well, if you have the recording of shabad haare and could share it, i would be greatful.
