Mohan Neend Na Aveh Haveh!

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Sorry for not having updated my blog earlier, I have been quite busy in the last two weeks. The next few weeks I am going to be busy as well. We are moving house soon so there is lots of work to do.

In addition Malaysian Samelan is less than two weeks away(YAY!). If any of you are coming and do recognize me, please come up to me, I as usual am generally lost in my own world. I might bring my dilruba along to play with some of my friends during kirtan, lets see what happens.

In today’s post I intend to share with you a shabad that is close to my heart, mohn nId n AwvY hwvY hwr kjr bsqR ABrn kIny ] As this shabad has 2 rahao’s I would recommend you read the shabad in the following manner.

1st Rahao, 1st Antra, 2nd Rahao, 2nd Antra

This shabad is written by Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the 5th Nanak. As indicated in the Sirlekh( title), this shabad is a partaal shabad. To read more about partaals and their structure please read : Partaals

Personally I feel when you read this shabad in the manner I have mentioned above, the meaning of the shabad comes out so beautifully that there isnt much left to explain any more.

This term went by really fast and a lot has happened on the personal and work( school) front. My courses this term were rather heavy and Master ji( my kirtan teacher) has been grilling me quite a fair bit.

In the last few days, I have been reflecting on what happened in the last few months cause at the end of it all I felt there was something missing. I could not understand what it was. However, I did realize that I haven’t been to the gurudawara on my own for some time now. I make it a point to go to gurudawara sahib in the afternoons when no one is around and I just sit with guru sahib and soak in the vibrations. I went to guru sahib and sat with him, before I was to leave, this shabad were the words guru sahib spoke to me.

Mohan Neend Na Aveh Haveh

this shabad reet has been rendered by Bhai Avtar Singh ji and his brother Bhai Gurcharan Singh ji.

Guru Ang Sang!
