    ਿਸਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੩ ॥
    ਤਰ੍ੈ ਗੁਣ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹੁ ਹੈ ਗੁਰਮੁਿਖ ਚਉਥਾ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਇ ॥
    ਕਿਰ ਿਕਰਪਾ ਮੇਲਾਇਅਨੁ ਹਿਰ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਆ ਮਿਨ ਆਇ ॥
    ਪੋਤੈ ਿਜਨ ਕੈ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਹੈ ਿਤਨ ਸਤਸੰਗਿਤ ਮੇਲਾਇ ॥੧॥

    Three qualities of Maya lead to attachment. It is all-pervasive and anyone who takes birth has to die one day and all those coming here they remain affected by the influence of Maya unless one is Graced upon by the Lord. The Lord Himself has created it. The effect of Maya and how it has influenced the mankind has been stated at many places in bani:

    mwieAw kwrix krY aupwau ] kbih n GwlY sIDw pwau [1151-15]


    sMig shweI su AwvY n cIiq ] jo bYrweI qw isau pRIiq ] [5-267-17]

    It is only those who really become Gurmukh i.e by following Guru’s Teachings/Gurmat/ bani/Guru Shabads that he obtains the Fourth stage. The stage is called as ‘Turia’ state. Any person in this stage is at higher spiritual level.This spiritual level is also obtained if it is either pre-ordained or the individual is Graced upon by Kartaar. In this state the Maya and tri-gunas have no effect on the seeker/devotee. It is the Lord who takes those into His sanctuary in whose mind He dwells in the form of Name of Lord.Only those who are virtuous finds place in Sat-sangat. It is sat-sangat that one can really become close to the Lord. Bani further states that He is always present in the Sat-sangat. There is lot of emphasis on sat-sangat in Bani.

    sqsMgiq kYsI jwxIAY ] ijQY eyko nwmu vKwxIAY ] (1, 72-1)

    ਭਾਈ ਰੇ ਗੁਰਮਿਤ ਸਾਿਚ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
    ਸਾਚੋ ਸਾਚੁ ਕਮਾਵਣਾ ਸਾਚੈ ਸਬਿਦ ਿਮਲਾਉ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ

    One is advised to work according to Gurmat and always remain in the simran of the Almighty, the self existent Lord. Keep on Praising Him. It is through the true sabad /bani that one merges into the Lord. [In the above line the phrase ‘sache sabad Milao’ appears and it has no face /independent meaning unless some thing is assigned to it.I have assigned the meaning that: one merges into the Lord through the contemplation of bani. There can some other ways also in which the line can be assigned some meaning so that the coherence is maintained.]

    ਿਜਨੀ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਛਾਿਣਆ ਿਤਨ ਿਵਟਹੁ ਬਿਲ ਜਾਉ ॥
    ਆਪੁ ਛੋਿਡ ਚਰਣੀ ਲਗਾ ਚਲਾ ਿਤਨ ਕੈ ਭਾਇ ॥
    ਲਾਹਾ ਹਿਰ ਹਿਰ ਨਾਮੁ ਿਮਲੈ ਸਹਜੇ ਨਾਿਮ ਸਮਾਇ ॥੨॥

    Those who have understood the true significance of the Naam, have been spoken of very high by the Guru sahibaan in this line. They overcome ego and Guru Sahib are in full praise of those devotees. It is by seeking the sanctuary of the persons, who constantly practice Naam, that one may get the benefit of treasure of Naam and one remain intuitively absorbed in it.

    ਿਬਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਮਹਲੁ ਨ ਪਾਈਐ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਪਰਾਪਿਤ ਹੋਇ ॥
    ਐਸਾ ਸਤਗੁਰੁ ਲੋਿੜ ਲਹੁ ਿਜਦੂ ਪਾਈਐ ਸਚੁ ਸੋਇ ॥
    ਅਸੁਰ ਸੰਘਾਰੈ ਸੁਿਖ ਵਸੈ ਜੋ ਿਤਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੁ ਹੋਇ ॥੩॥

    Having stated this, Guru Sahibs further instructs that without Guru one cannot find His sanctuary and one cannot find His Naam. One should have a Guru, with the guidance of whom, one can find Him or one can understand His essence. One who, with the blessings of Guru, overcomes the Lower instincts ,that appear on account of five senses, remains in the state of spiritual bliss and thus one become a devotee as the Lord likes. In another words, one becomes eligible for His grace.

    ਜੇਹਾ ਸਤਗੁਰੁ ਕਿਰ ਜਾਿਣਆ ਤੇਹੋ ਜੇਹਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
    ਏਹੁ ਸਹਸਾ ਮੂਲੇ ਨਾਹੀ ਭਾਉ ਲਾਏ ਜਨੁ ਕੋਇ ॥
    ਨਾਨਕ ਏਕ ਜੋਿਤ ਦੁਇ ਮੂਰਤੀ ਸਬਿਦ ਿਮਲਾਵਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੪॥੧੧॥੪੪॥{ਪੰਨਾ 30}

    As one wants to understand the lord one enjoys the spiritual bliss accordingly. There is not an iota of doubt that if one meets the Guru through the Guru shabad/Bani that devotee and the Guru becomes one i.e. Ek Jyot. [There remains no difference between the Guru and the devotee] It is thus clear that the devoteee can meet the Guru through the shabad i.e. by leading the life as ordained in bani.

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!
