    Fifth Mehl:
    Naam Dayv's mind was absorbed into God, Gobind, Gobind, Gobind.
    The calico-printer, worth half a shell, became worth millions. ||1||Pause||
    Abandoning weaving and stretching thread, Kabeer enshrined love for the Lord's lotus feet.
    A weaver from a lowly family, he became an ocean of excellence. ||1||
    Ravi Daas, who used to carry dead cows every day, renounced the world of Maya.
    He became famous in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, and obtained the Blessed Vision of the Lord's Darshan. ||2||
    Sain, the barber, the village drudge, became famous in each and every house.
    The Supreme Lord God dwelled in his heart, and he was counted among the devotees. ||3||
    Hearing this, Dhanna the Jaat applied himself to devotional worship.
    The Lord of the Universe met him personally; Dhanna was so very blessed. ||4||2||

    This shabad by Guru Arjun Ji Sahib is written testimony by Guru Ji about HOW Bhagat Dhanna Ji became a Bhagat. The Brahmins had preached a false story about Bhagat Dhanna Ji and the Stone idols. He is said to have got "God" thru a stone by his devotion and love/bhagtee.

    Guru Ji refutes this theory. Dhanna the Jatt was no idol worshipper...he heard about how the other supposedly low caste people like Kabeer, Ravidass sain ji etc etc became world famous as Bhagtas thru...NAAM BHAGTEE...love and devotion to the NAAM of Waheguru. This is the BIDH..or METHOD used by all the Bhagats and Dhanna ji as well.

    Gurbani totally rejects idols and idol worship as FUTILE and worthless habit. One stone is kept under foot..other is worshipped ?? When the Idol carver carves the stone idol..he STEPS on the idol to hold it in place while carving...how can that stone save him ?? Stones never saved anyone and dhanna ji never worshipped any stone. The Lord of Sikhism is eternal and is won over by love and devotion.

    Maaroo, Fourth Mehl:
    The Siddhas in Samaadhi meditate on Him; they are lovingly focused on Him. The seekers and the silent sages meditate on Him as well.
    The celibates, the true and contented beings meditate on Him; Indra and the other gods chant His Name with their mouths.
    Those who seek His Sanctuary meditate on Him; they become Gurmukh and swim across. ||1||
    O my mind, chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and cross over.
    Dhanna the farmer, and Balmik the highway robber, became Gurmukh, and crossed over. ||1||Pause||
    Angels, men, heavenly heralds and celestial singers meditate on Him; even the humble Rishis sing of the Lord.
    Shiva, Brahma and the goddess Lakhshmi, meditate, and chant with their mouths the Name of the Lord, Har, Har.
    Those whose minds are drenched with the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, as Gurmukh, cross over. ||2||
    Millions and millions, three hundred thirty million gods meditate on Him; there is no end to those who meditate on the Lord.
    The Vedas, the Puraanas and the Simritees meditate on the Lord; the Pandits, the religious scholars, sing the Lord's Praises as well.
    Those whose minds are filled with the Naam, the source of nectar - as Gurmukh, they cross over. ||3||
    Those who chant the Naam in endless waves - I cannot even count their number.
    The Lord of the Universe bestows His Mercy, and those who are pleasing to the Mind of the Lord God, find their place.
    The Guru, granting His Grace, implants the Lord's Name within; servant Nanak chants the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||4||2||

    "The food and clothes, and all the worldly possessions of those who are attuned to the Lord's Name are sacred."

    They are sacred because they are Sikhs of the True Guru.

    "
    All the homes, temples, palaces and way-stations are sacred, where the Gurmukhs, the selfless servants, the Sikhs and the renouncers of the world, go and take their rest."

    Again, because there is a Gurmukh present, they are sacred...


    "
    All the horses, saddles and horse blankets are sacred, upon which the Gurmukhs, the Sikhs, the Holy and the Saints, mount and ride."

    See above...

    "All the rituals and Dharmic practices and deeds are sacred, for those who utter the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, the True Name of the Lord."

    They are sacred because a Sikh does them. They themselves do not contain any virtue, and cannot link us to God unless we are Sikhs first. if we choose to do them, however, our mind must still be focused on God, as a Gurmukh.

    Are you implying you are Gurmukh, and able to be focused on God even when doing rituals?

    I think the answer is obvious. These only become virtuous when we merge with Waheguru, then all duality falls away, Until then, we should abstain from Yogic practices, etc. please see my responses to "Yogi bajan and 3HO" in the "New to Sikhism" forum.

    AmbarDhara, Sardara123 and Gyani jios!

    This is the most amazing combination of Gurmat and contextual knowledge that is helpful to understanding the Bani more fully. A katha of its own kind.

    Why can't there be more of this approach to discussion? I wonder how many of us would be in awe of the way knowledge can be grown this way.

    Bhai Bakhshish Singh - Pati Tore Malini


    (479-5)
    aasaa saree kabeer jee-o kay panchpaday 9 dutukay 5
    Aasaa, Kabeer Jee, 9 Panch-Padas, 5 Du-Tukas:

    paatee torai maalini paatee paatee jee-o.
    You tear off the leaves, O gardener, but in each and every leaf, there is life.

    jis paahan ka-o paatee torai so paahan nirjee-o. ||1||
    That stone idol, for which you tear off those leaves - that stone idol is lifeless. ||1||

    bhoolee maalnee hai ay-o.
    In this, you are mistaken, O gardener.

    satgur jaagtaa hai day-o. ||1|| rahaa-o.
    The True Guru is the Living Lord. ||1||Pause||

    barahm paatee bisan daaree fool sankarday-o.
    Brahma is in the leaves, Vishnu is in the branches, and Shiva is in the flowers.

    teen dayv partakh toreh karahi kis kee say-o. ||2||
    When you break these three gods, whose service are you performing? ||2||

    paakhaan gadh kai moorat keenHee day kai chhaatee paa-o.
    The sculptor carves the stone and fashions it into an idol, placing his feet upon its chest.

    jay ayh moorat saachee hai ta-o garhHanhaaray khaa-o. ||3||
    If this stone god was true, it would devour the sculptor for this! ||3||

    bhaat pahit ar laapsee karkaraa kaasaar.
    Rice and beans, candies, cakes and cookies

    bhoganhaaray bhogi-aa is moorat kay mukh chhaar. ||4||
    - the priest enjoys these, while he puts ashes into the mouth of the idol. ||4||

    maalin bhoolee jag bhulaanaa ham bhulaanay naahi.
    The gardener is mistaken, and the world is mistaken, but I am not mistaken.

    kaho kabeer ham raam raakhay kirpaa kar har raa-ay. ||5||1||14||
    Says Kabeer, the Lord preserves me; the Lord, my King, has showered His Blessings upon me. ||5||1||14||
