    Awareness Of His Being Within- Pir Sang… (Part-1)

    Isn’t it sad, HE is with us and we are not aware of that? By simply saying He is with us, is not actual awareness because if that is real, why our minds are not stilled? The way we live, treat others, earn, give away, defend our ideas will prove that we are addicted to the sweetness of ego and hypocrisy. As we fault, awareness of His being with us is mitigated due to other forces that lead us as per our preferences. In the following Guru Shabad, our stand in this context is clear. This Shabad is sung by Bhai Ravinder Singh ji. Here is the Guru shabad by Mehl 1 in Dhanasri Raag.
    ਪਿਰ ਸੰਗਿ ਮੂਠੜੀਏ ਖਬਰਿ ਪਾਈਆ ਜੀਉ
    Oh deluded one, though the Beloved is with you and you don’t have knowledge of it.
    What deluded the soul bride? Maya. Why the awareness of His being with her, never takes place? Maya keeps beguiling the soul bride. Guru ji further addresses the reason behind not seeing HIM with in, His Ordinance and due to the slumber soul bride slips into bar her from that chance.ਮਸਤਕਿ ਲਿਖਿਅੜਾ ਲੇਖੁ ਪੁਰਬਿ ਕਮਾਇਆ ਜੀਉ
    As destined, awareness of His Being with in is never realized
    Effect of previous deeds dominated the destiny and the soul bride is remained deluded even after having another chance to realize Him. So what was sown is reaped because no effort to change is made. Guru ji asks the follower to ponder over “what happened”, and “why is it happened and is not changed”.
    ਲੇਖੁ ਮਿਟਈ ਪੁਰਬਿ ਕਮਾਇਆ ਕਿਆ ਜਾਣਾ ਕਿਆ ਹੋਸੀ
    As destiny is not changed as per previous deeds, as they say, one wonders what will happen at the end.
    Here Guru ji expresses others views that written destiny is not changed; however, he hints out that it is not because destiny only, actually, no effort is made to change this course (note down the following Guru-Vaak), obviously now all is up to Him. In next Vaak, Guru ji makes clear the reason why written destiny remains unchanged, in other words, it could have been changed but neither any effort was made in this regard nor HE bestowed His blessings otherwise. Here are the two main reasons. Figuring out the reason, read on
    ਗੁਣੀ ਅਚਾਰਿ ਨਹੀ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਾਤੀ ਅਵਗੁਣ ਬਹਿ ਬਹਿ ਰੋਸੀ
    Neither virtues have been attained nor she has gotten imbued with His love, virtue less soul bride will repent only.

    Two things cemented the destiny 1. Virtuous way of life is not chosen 2. Mind never got imbued with Him. Why? Maya deluded her. Ignoring Him for Maya illusions trigger bad destiny to continue.
    What is left? Just to repent and bewail over deeds. You know by doing so, nothing happens, it is literally useless. In next Vaak, Guru ji expresses the limitations of Maya and consequences of being infected with it, and being careless about Him and value of virtuous way.

    ਧਨੁ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਆਕ ਕੀ ਛਾਇਆ ਬਿਰਧਿ ਭਏ ਦਿਨ ਪੁੰਨਿਆ
    All the Riches and youthfulness are very temporary like shade of swallowwort. All is gone when old age knocks at the door, eventually day of end arrives.

    Then what repenting will do, the asset of time has been wasted away. That is very sad situation. It is like game is over and some one wants to replay but there is no time.
    ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਦੋਹਾਗਣਿ ਛੂਟੀ ਝੂਠਿ ਵਿਛੁੰਨਿਆ ॥੧॥
    Like a divorced one, the soul bride would be discarded and, this way of living lies will become a cause of separation from The Creator.

    Reason is clear, He was never considered as priority and life is lived without Him.
    Bottom line is that do not play game with HIM? Like thinking “ I just want to do this thing, I want to complete this thing then I shall be free and get more time for Simran etc”. Time passes on, that free time keeps elapsing. After showing the picture of this tragic behavior, Guru ji advises
    ਬੂਡੀ ਘਰੁ ਘਾਲਿਓ ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਭਾਇ ਚਲੋ
    Even though oh soul bride you are drowned/looted and chance of meeting HIM is ruined, follow Guru’s will( do what Guru wants you to do, what does Guru want from us actually? To be imbued with HIM.) that will help soul bride to walk on path of experiencing HIM within. In next Vaak, Guru expresses the out come of Guru obedience:
    ਸਾਚਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਇ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਸੁਖਿ ਮਹਲੋ
    By meditating on His Name, living in His love, peace would be found with in. So get out of Maya involvement and its illusions and live in His love and enjoy never ending happiness. It is all with in as HE is with us. Remain always aware of that fact and never lose that awareness because”Pir” is always within..

    I hope it is not the wrong thing to do -- breaking into the middle of your vichaar. But the items above are from your explanation of the Shabad. Looking at them all together, do they not add up to a set of reflections that can make a difference in the life of the soul? I can see these as topics for discussions of Gurbani in many different places where Sikhi is celebrated.;)

    Thanks for pointing out the main ideas expressed in the article. I wonder how many really bother about the issue Guru ji points out in the Shabad" Pir Sang..." Many ways Guru ji inspires us to be curious about HIM and to fall for none but HIM, read on the following

    ਜਿਤੁ ਦਰਿ ਵਸਹਿ ਕਵਨੁ ਦਰੁ ਕਹੀਐ ਦਰਾ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਦਰੁ ਕਵਨੁ ਲਹੈ ਜਿਸੁ ਦਰ ਕਾਰਣਿ ਫਿਰਾ ਉਦਾਸੀ ਸੋ ਦਰੁ ਕੋਈ ਆਇ ਕਹੈ ॥੧॥ रामकली महला १ ॥ जितु दरि वसहि कवनु दरु कहीऐ दरा भीतरि दरु कवनु लहै ॥ जिसु दर कारणि फिरा उदासी सो दरु कोई आइ कहै ॥१॥
    Rāmkalī mehlā 1. Jiṯ ḏar vaseh kavan ḏar kahī*ai ḏarā bẖīṯar ḏar kavan lahai. Jis ḏar kāraṇ firā uḏāsī so ḏar ko*ī ā*ė kahai. ||1||
    Ramkali 1st Guru. Which is said to be the court, within which Thou sittest, O Lord. From amongst all the courts, who can see that court? Let some one come and tell me of the court, for the sight of which I go about sadly. (M.S)
    ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਪਾਤਿਸ਼ਾਹੀ। ਉਹ ਕਿਹੜਾ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਆਖਿਆ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ, ਜਿਸ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਅੰਦਰ ਤੂੰ ਬਹਿੰਦਾ ਹੈਂ, ਹੇ ਸੁਆਮੀ! ਸਾਰਿਆਂ ਦਰਬਾਰਾਂ ਵਿੱਚੋਂ, ਉਸ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਕੌਣ ਵੇਖ ਸਕਦਾ ਹੈ? ਕੋਈ ਜਣਾ ਆ ਕੇ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਉਸ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਬਾਰੇ ਦੱਸੇ ਜਿਸ ਨੂੰ ਵੇਖਣ ਲਈ ਮੈਂ ਉਦਾਸ ਹੋਇਆ ਫਿਰਦਾ ਹਾਂ।
    If with all mind in His love is lived, following Shalok will become every day experience
    Shalok: MEHLA 5

    ਉਰਿ ਧਾਰੈ ਜੋ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ
    उरि धारै जो अंतरि नामु ॥
    Ur ḏẖārai jo anṯar nām.
    One who enshrines the Naam within the heart,

    ਸਰਬ ਮੈ ਪੇਖੈ ਭਗਵਾਨੁ

    सरब मै पेखै भगवानु ॥
    Sarab mai pėkẖai bẖagvān.
    who sees the Lord God in all,

    There is another declaration by Guru ji in context of playing games with HIM, it is pretty much against hypocrisy, one wonders why this game should not be stopped !
    ਪਉੜੀ ਧੋਹੁ ਚਲੀ ਖਸਮ ਨਾਲਿ ਲਬਿ ਮੋਹਿ ਵਿਗੁਤੇ ਕਰਤਬ ਕਰਨਿ ਭਲੇਰਿਆ ਮਦਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਸੁਤੇ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਜੂਨਿ ਭਵਾਈਅਨਿ ਜਮ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਮੁਤੇ ਕੀਤਾ ਪਾਇਨਿ ਆਪਣਾ ਦੁਖ ਸੇਤੀ ਜੁਤੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਇ ਵਿਸਾਰਿਐ ਸਭ ਮੰਦੀ ਰੁਤੇ ॥੧੨॥ (GGS 321)

    Pauri. Fraud avails not with the spouse. Through avarice and worldly love the mortal is ruined. The persons commit evil deeds and are asleep in the ego of wealth. Over and over again they are goaded into existences and are abandoned on death's track. Yoked to pain they obtain the desert of their deeds. Nanak evil are all the seasons when one forgets the Lord's Name.

    ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ਸੋਇ ਰਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਖਬਰਿ ਜਾਨੀ ਭੋਰੁ ਭਇਆ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਪਛੁਤਾਨੀ ॥੧॥
    Asa 5th Guru. The bride is asleep and knows not the news of her Lord. When the day breaks, then does she grieve.
    ਆਸਾ ਪੰਜਵੀਂ ਪਾਤਸ਼ਾਹੀ। ਪਤਨੀ ਸੁੱਤੀ ਪਈ ਹੈ, ਅਤੇ ਅਪਣੇ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਦੇ ਸੰਦੇਸੇ ਨੂੰ ਨਹੀਂ ਜਾਣਦੀ। ਜਦ ਦਿਨ ਚੜ੍ਹ ਆਉਂਦਾ ਹੈ, ਤਦ ਉਹ ਅਫਸੋਸ ਕਰਦੀ ਹੈ।
    ਸੋਇ ਰਹੀ = (ਉਮਰ ਦੀ ਸਾਰੀ ਰਾਤ) ਸੁੱਤੀ ਰਹੀ, ਸਾਰੀ ਉਮਰ ਆਤਮਕ ਜੀਵਨ ਵਲੋਂ ਬੇ-ਪਰਵਾਹੀ ਟਿਕੀ ਰਹੀ। ਭੋਰੁ = ਦਿਨ, ਉਮਰ-ਰਾਤ ਦਾ ਅੰਤ, ਮੌਤ ਦਾ ਸਮਾ। ਬਹੁਰਿ = ਮੁੜ, ਫਿਰ, ਤਦੋਂ।੧।

    ਹੇ ਸਖੀ! (ਜੇਹੜੀ ਜੀਵ-ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਮਾਇਆ ਦੇ ਮੋਹ ਦੀ ਨੀਂਦ ਵਿਚ) ਸੁੱਤੀ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ ਹੈ (ਆਤਮਕ ਜੀਵਨ ਵਲੋਂ ਬੇ-ਪਰਵਾਹ ਟਿਕੀ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ ਹੈ) ਉਹ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ (ਦੇ ਮਿਲਾਪ) ਦੀ ਕਿਸੇ ਸਿੱਖਿਆ ਨੂੰ ਨਹੀਂ ਸਮਝਦੀ। ਪਰ ਜਦੋਂ ਦਿਨ ਚੜ੍ਹ ਆਉਂਦਾ ਹੈ (ਜ਼ਿੰਦਗੀ ਦੀ ਰਾਤ ਮੁੱਕ ਕੇ ਮੌਤ ਦਾ ਸਮਾ ਆ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ) ਤਦੋਂ ਉਹ ਪਛੁਤਾਂਦੀ ਹੈ।੧।
    ਪਛੁਤਾਂਦੀ ਹੈ।੧।
    ਪ੍ਰਿਅ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਸਹਜਿ ਮਨਿ ਅਨਦੁ ਧਰਉ ਰੀ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਮਿਲਬੇ ਕੀ ਲਾਲਸਾ ਤਾ ਤੇ ਆਲਸੁ ਕਹਾ ਕਰਉ ਰੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ
    By love for thy beloved, thou shalt easily imbibe joy in thy heart, O bride. When there is longing in thee to meet thy Lord, then why shouldest thou make delay? Pause.
    ਆਪਣੇ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਦੇ ਪਿਆਰ ਦੁਆਰਾ, ਹੇ ਪਤਨੀਏ! ਤੂੰ ਆਪਣੇ ਦਿਲ ਅੰਦਰ ਸੁਖੈਨ ਹੀ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਪਾ ਲਵੇਗੀਂ। ਜਦ ਤੇਰੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਆਪਣੇ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਨੂੰ ਮਿਲਣ ਦੀ ਤਾਂਘ ਹੈ, ਤਦ ਤੂੰ ਢਿਲ ਕਿਉਂ ਕਰਦੀ ਹੈਂ? ਠਹਿਰਾਉ।
    ਸਹਜਿ = ਆਤਮਕ ਅਡੋਲਤਾ ਵਿਚ। ਪ੍ਰਿਅ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ = ਪਿਆਰੇ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ (ਦੀ ਬਰਕਤਿ ਨਾਲ)। ਮਨਿ = ਮਨ ਵਿਚ। ਅਨਦੁ = ਆਨੰਦ। ਧਰਉ = ਧਰਉਂ, ਮੈਂ ਟਿਕਾਈ ਰੱਖਦੀ ਹਾਂ। ਰੀ = ਹੇ ਸਖੀ! ਮਿਲਬੇ ਕੀ = ਮਿਲਣ ਦੀ। ਲਾਲਸਾ = ਤਾਂਘ। ਤਾ ਤੇ = ਇਸ ਕਰਕੇ। ਕਹਾ ਕਰਉ = ਮੈਂ ਕਿਥੇ ਕਰ ਸਕਦੀ ਹਾਂ?।੧।ਰਹਾਉ।

    ਹੇ ਸਖੀ! ਪਿਆਰੇ (ਪ੍ਰਭੂ) ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਦੀ ਬਰਕਤਿ ਨਾਲ ਆਤਮਕ ਅਡੋਲਤਾ ਵਿਚ ਟਿਕ ਕੇ ਮੈਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਮਨ ਵਿਚ (ਉਸ ਦੇ ਦਰਸਨ ਦੀ ਤਾਂਘ ਦਾ) ਆਨੰਦ ਟਿਕਾਈ ਰੱਖਦੀ ਹਾਂ। ਹੇ ਸਖੀ! (ਮੇਰੇ ਅੰਦਰ ਹਰ ਵੇਲੇ) ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਦੇ ਮਿਲਾਪ ਦੀ ਤਾਂਘ ਬਣੀ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ ਹੈ, ਇਸ ਵਾਸਤੇ (ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਯਾਦ ਰੱਖਣ ਵਲੋਂ) ਮੈਂ ਕਦੇ ਭੀ ਆਲਸ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰ ਸਕਦੀ।੧।ਰਹਾਉ।

    PIR SANG…Awareness Of His Being Within ( Part 2)

    ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ਤਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਏ ਪੇਈਅੜੈ ਦਿਨ ਚਾਰੇ
    By being totally involved with Him, drowned in His simran by breathing in His love, bliss of happiness is attained. The stay in this world is very limited , His call is inevitable eventually. All this awareness of Him must be in mind while living so that nothing should detour us from this virtuous way of life. Through meditating on Him, virtues blossom, it is such powerful force to curb negativities.

    ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਇ ਬਹੈ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਏ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਨਾਲਿ ਪਿਆਰੇ
    So soul bride stays home where HE is, flying with hopes, running after Maya temptations will take us out of the heart bed where He lies; by meditating on Him, unlimited days one enjoys being with true Lord, the beloved One.When out side attraction ceases, mind is known to be at home. In that state His realization occurs. In next Vaak, Guru ji expresses his experience as warning to those who preach other ways of realization of HIM.

    ਵਿਣੁ ਭਗਤੀ ਘਰਿ ਵਾਸੁ ਹੋਵੀ ਸੁਣਿਅਹੁ ਲੋਕ ਸਬਾਏ
    Mind remains prone to distractions layered together with temptations and, keeps failing to stay within without His worshipping in His love. What is”ghar/home? That state of mind where outer influences are negated with contemplation on Him. It is addressed to all others who claim other ways to reach Him. It is stressed here that HE is realized only through falling in love with Him and live in His love. It also means, always HE remains the center of attention. Any physical effort and rituals etc are literally discarded as useless. This idea is made more clear in the following Vaak

    ਨਾਨਕ ਸਰਸੀ ਤਾ ਪਿਰੁ ਪਾਏ ਰਾਤੀ ਸਾਚੈ ਨਾਏ
    Guru ji declares, only if soul bride remains imbued forever with His Name, she can realize Him otherwise not.
    As many say they have Naam, they can give to others, merely enjoying their illusions. Guru ji makes it clear that by being totally involved with Him, a state where outer influences cease to affect, is achieved and, sorrow, pain, slandering, happiness are taken as His ordinance,
    He is seen every where; one in million reaches to that state with His grace but efforts should be continue to reach there by being in His love. Without effort there is no fruit. It is very serious choice; by merely talking, nothing is going to be materialized. Who are such persons? In answer to that,I would take the honor to quote Fifth Nanak’s pious description
    ਰਤੇ ਸੇਈ ਜਿ ਮੁਖੁ ਮੋੜੰਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਿ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹੀ ਸਿਞਾਤਾ ਸਾਈ ਝੜਿ ਝੜਿ ਪਵਦੇ ਕਚੇ ਬਿਰਹੀ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਾ ਕਾਰਿ ਆਈ

    Imbued with the Lord's love are they alone, who realize their Lord and turn not their face away from Him. The false lovers( Who just talk), who know not the talk of the Lord's love fall off mid-way. ( Tr. By. Manmohan singh ji)
    ਪਿਰੁ ਧਨ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਪਿਰ ਭਾਵੈ ਨਾਰੀ ਜੀਉ
    If the Soul bride pleases the Beloved with her love, then Lord likes her. Through this Vaak Guru ji makes clear two things, Virtuous ways of life and unconditional love for Him are helpful in achieving His blessings. His love for soul bride over come every obstacle
    . This way out is shown to the soul bride by Guru, so living Guru Teachings is very vital. Read on

    ਰੰਗਿ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਰਾਤੀ ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਸਬਦਿ ਵੀਚਾਰੀ ਜੀਉ
    By cogitating Guru Shabad, pondering over every thing Guru says, Soul bride gets imbued with the Beloved
    . Guru Shabad enables her to over come all obstacles through meditating on HIM. Guru teachings are supposed to be considered a way of life, they are not just for singing or reciting. They should be a part of every action we do. No game playing.

    ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦਿ ਵੀਚਾਰੀ ਨਾਹ ਪਿਆਰੀ ਨਿਵਿ ਨਿਵਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਕਰੇਈ
    As in His love,Soul bride contemplates Guru Shabad, she is loved by her Spouse(
    ਨਾਹ ) and in His love she performs devotional service to Lord in all humility. This is the change occurs after giving up herself to Guru and falling in love with the Lord. If we find our actions are far away from this truth, we should ponder over Guru Shabad again.

    ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹੁ ਜਲਾਏ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮੁ ਰਸ ਮਹਿ ਰੰਗੁ ਕਰੇਈ
    This way, Soul bride gets rid of worldly attachment and temptations and starts enjoying being in His company.
    What happened actually, answer is in next Vaak.

    ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਾਚੇ ਸੇਤੀ ਰੰਗਿ ਰੰਗੇਤੀ ਲਾਲ ਭਈ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਰੀ
    Soul Bride is completely imbued with the love of the True Lord, by conquering mind, she has become very gorgeous. This is the way to live with Him. This is result of love she is drowned in. Now she is not divorced but is with Him

    ਨਾਨਕ ਸਾਚਿ ਵਸੀ ਸੋਹਾਗਣਿ ਪਿਰ ਸਿਉ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਪਿਆਰੀ
    Having sweet love of her Beloved, blessed Soul bride lives with True Lord. Here state of mind goes beyond awareness of His being within; actually she starts living with HIM. i

    ਪਿਰ ਘਰਿ ਸੋਹੈ ਨਾਰਿ ਜੇ ਪਿਰ ਭਾਵਏ ਜੀਉ
    Soul bride attains respect if she is with her Lord Husband; however it all depends on His grace. With Him she becomes beauteous and she has honor of having Him
    .This is attained with virtuous way and by being in love with Him only, all other things done are not useful, next vaak addresses that

    ਝੂਠੇ ਵੈਣ ਚਵੇ ਕਾਮਿ ਆਵਏ ਜੀਉ
    Wailing done in false words is not useful to please Him. It is not accepted by Him.
    What He likes is not done, why wailing then? Why empty calls are made to HIM loudly?
    ਝੂਠੁ ਅਲਾਵੈ ਕਾਮਿ ਆਵੈ ਨਾ ਪਿਰੁ ਦੇਖੈ ਨੈਣੀ
    As these false wailing is useless, Soul bride never be able to see Beloved. This is not the way to see Him, to realize Him. If there is longing for Him, one has to get ready for HIM. False religious practices are not accepted in His court as per Guru Hukam.

    ਅਵਗੁਣਿਆਰੀ ਕੰਤਿ ਵਿਸਾਰੀ ਛੂਟੀ ਵਿਧਣ ਰੈਣੀ
    Soul bride, with no merit, forgotten and divorced by her Spouse, suffers; she passes the night of her life without her Master. In Guru Granth Sahib Ji, it is said that only Gurmukh are awake otherwise rest of the world is in slumber of Maya. Think how sweet is the poison of Maya!
    Same view is stressed here.
    ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦੁ ਮਾਨੈ ਫਾਹੀ ਫਾਥੀ ਸਾ ਧਨ ਮਹਲੁ ਪਾਏ
    Such Soul Bride who doesn’t believe in Guru's word, and she is caught in the worldly net, cannot obtain her Lord. For what life is given, that is lost, what is left? A temporary enjoyment of personal preferences! Guru ji in another Shabad also says that if this turn (life) is missed, then it will fall to the next one if that comes.
    ਨਾਨਕ ਆਪੇ ਆਪੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਾਏ

    Guru ji says if Soul Bride understands her purpose of her life, she can merge in the celestial peace by the grace of Guru. She has to realize that first and act upon Guru ji teachings.
    ਧਨ ਸੋਹਾਗਣਿ ਨਾਰਿ ਜਿਨਿ ਪਿਰੁ ਜਾਣਿਆ ਜੀਉ
    Blessed is the fortunate Soul bride who realizes her dear Lord Husband; Guru ji here applauds those who act and live as per Guru’s directions and eventually realize HIM In the next Vaak, Guru ji states strongly that without HIM, life lived is just false or in other words wasted.
    ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਕੂੜਿਆਰਿ ਕੂੜੁ ਕਮਾਣਿਆ ਜੀਉ
    Without the Name, What Soul Bride does is false and she is false without Lord’s Name. In other words life becomes a waste without HIM. In worldly point of views it is otherwise. People call those successful who are drowned in Maya and who are turned to Him are not appreciated, it is also said, read on
