Dear Khalsa Ji,



Today, with the Kripa of ‘The Sat’, I share with you my understanding of 11th Pauri of Anand Sahib.





1. ey mn ipAwirAw qU sdw scu smwly ] ay man pi-aari-aa too sadaa sach samaalay.



O my beloved mind, you always remain with the true (‘The Sat’)



My understanding:
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/anand-sahib/1155-anand-sahib-11th-pauri.html



Guru Sahib instructs me to be truthful – in my thoughts, in my speech and in my actions. I should hold to truth. My life should preserve the truth in me. All that I do, should reflect the light of ‘The Sat’ that shines within me, i.e. it should be an expression of the wisdom that dawns on me due to ‘The Sat’ that resides in me and its glow illuminates my mind. These expressions should not be coloured by any of my vices or Ahamkara i.e. my ‘I’ should not give its own tinge to them; this Ahamkara should not interfere with them. This is only possible when my ‘I’ is dissolved and neutralised.



All that I do, should be pure, stemming from truth; all my acts should be so all the way - right from their origin to their delivery.



Guru Sahib here tells my mind and me to remain steadfast with the truth. All this is possible only if my mind is one with the truth, and this is what Guru Sahib asks me to achieve; i.e. my mind and my being should be nothing but the truth.

2. eyhu kutMbu qU ij dyKdw clY nwhI qyrY nwly ] ayhu kutamb too je daykh-daa chalai naahee tayrai naalay.



This family, which you care for will not go with you.



My understanding:



Here Guru Sahib points out the plain fact to me that the family, which I care for and sight as justification for all that I do – good and not so good, will not go with me when I depart from this world. This way Guru Sahib tells me that sometime the forces of nature will detach me from this family when my time comes; it is not wise to live a life based on attachment to my own family. I must do all my Dharma for my family, to my maximum capacity that my truthful living permits; more than this is not expected from me. In other words, Guru Sahib tells me that even the requirements of my most dearest i.e. my family, is not a good enough reason for me to deviate from the path of truth.



3. swiQ qyrY clY nwhI iqsu nwil ikau icqu lweIAY ] saath tayrai chalai naahee tis naal ki-o chit laa-ee-ai.



With you they will not go then why to concentrate all the attention towards them.



My understanding:



Here Guru Sahib instructs me not to get limited by my family. No doubt, family is individual’s responsibility but not the sole purpose of being born as human being. Such responsibilities are part of life of all sentient beings. Life in human form has much wider potential; it allows this animal to first become humane and then divine as she or he makes progress and evolve spiritually. Guru Sahib asks me to do all for my family that my capabilities allow, living all the time in truth. The real focus should be on ‘The Sat’ as that is the aim of my life in human form.



4. AYsw kMmu mUly n kIcY ijqu AMiq pCoqweIAY ] aisaa kamm moolay na keechai jit ant pachhotaa-ee-ai.



Do not do what one will have to regret in the end.



My understanding:



Guru Sahib tells me that out of attachments, likes and due to desires one does many things, which are not part of the individual’s Dharma and they do not contribute to her or his spiritual evolution.



When the time comes, facing death, the individual realises that she or he is nothing but a small existence in time, incapable of changing the course of events. Naturally, her or his ego crumbles, the veil of Maya disappears and one sees the naked truth – she or he has achieved nothing that will remain with her or him. The individual cannot go back in time to correct for the mistakes. Now the individual regrets of having lost the chance that this life in human gave her or him.



Guru Sahib, through this sentence, cautions me so that I can avoid this fate. Wah-e-Guru.



5. siqgurU kw aupdysu suix qU hovY qyrY nwly ] satguroo kaa updays sun too hovai tayrai naalay.



Listen to the teachings of the Sat-Guru (‘The Sat’) who will be with you.



My understanding:



Guru Sahib clearly tells me that my life should be based on truth alone. Guru Sahib asks me to evolve spiritually and get guidance from ‘Satguru’. Guru Sahib in this way asks me to strive for ‘Gurparsadi’. I know I have to qualify for it first; for that I have to become pure and all my being should become an expression of truth.



6. khY nwnku mn ipAwry qU sdw scu smwly ]11] kahai naanak man pi-aaray too sadaa sach samaalay. ||11||



Says Nanak, my beloved mind you always remain with the true (‘The Sat’).



My understanding:



Once again, Guru Sahib repeats for me the key for me to achieve the intent of being born in human form. The key is: all my being should be true, reflecting ‘The Sat’. For me, the live of our Gurus are vivid examples, form which, I can understand the real meaning of this sentence.



Wah-e-Guru.



With this I close.



With love and respect for all.



Amarpal
