    English translation of daily hukamnama based on Prof Sahib Singh teeka 08/05/2012. Please forgive any mistakes.

    Ang 634
    ਸੋਰਠਿ ਮਹਲਾ ੯ ॥
    Sorat'h, Ninth Mehl:

    ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਜਾਨਿ ਲੇਹੁ ਮਨ ਮਾਹੀ ॥
    Oh Friend! In your mind firmly understand this thing,

    ਅਪਨੇ ਸੁਖ ਸਿਉ ਹੀ ਜਗੁ ਫਾਂਧਿਓ ਕੋ ਕਾਹੂ ਕੋ ਨਾਹੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
    (That,) the whole world is bound with its own pleasures/happiness. No one ever becomes anyone’s companion to the end. Pause.

    ਸੁਖ ਮੈ ਆਨਿ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਮਿਲਿ ਬੈਠਤ ਰਹਤ ਚਹੂ ਦਿਸਿ ਘੇਰੈ ॥
    Oh Friend! When a person is in good times, then many friends come together and sit with him, keeping a circle around on all our four sides.

    ਬਿਪਤਿ ਪਰੀ ਸਭ ਹੀ ਸੰਗੁ ਛਾਡਿਤ ਕੋਊ ਨ ਆਵਤ ਨੇਰੈ ॥੧॥
    But when some adversity/distress comes to him, all companions leave, (then) no one comes near him.

    ਘਰ ਕੀ ਨਾਰਿ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਹਿਤੁ ਜਾ ਸਿਉ ਸਦਾ ਰਹਤ ਸੰਗ ਲਾਗੀ ॥
    Oh Friend! Your wife too, with whom you have great love, who stays attached to her husband,

    ਜਬ ਹੀ ਹੰਸ ਤਜੀ ਇਹ ਕਾਂਇਆ ਪ੍ਰੇਤ ਪ੍ਰੇਤ ਕਰਿ ਭਾਗੀ ॥੨॥
    at that very moment when the husband’s life and soul leave the body, at this/to it the wife shouts “keep away!” “keep away!” “he (the body) has died he has died”.

    ਇਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਕੋ ਬਿਉਹਾਰੁ ਬਨਿਓ ਹੈ ਜਾ ਸਿਉ ਨੇਹੁ ਲਗਾਇਓ ॥
    Oh Friend! This is the kind of custom the world has made, the world with whom the person has developed so much love,

    ਅੰਤ ਬਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਜੀ ਕੋਊ ਕਾਮਿ ਨ ਆਇਓ ॥੩॥੧੨॥੧੩੯॥
    But, Oh Nanak! At the final end moment apart from Vaheguru no other can help the person.

    KirpaProject ji thanks for your post. Prof. Sahib Singh ji did not do an English Teeka. Are you translating each Shabad yourself? You should say so.

    The following is already available at SPN as a Stickie,

    Daily Hukumnama from Darbar Sahib Amritsar

    Yes Ji this daas is attempting a humble translation of Prof Ji's arths of the Sri Darbar Sahib Hukamnama Sahib each day. I have stated this in my post introducing the Kirpa Project... http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/sikh-sikhi-sikhism/38456-kirpa-project.html
    Apologies for any confusion Ji.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
