    ਸਲੋਕੁ

    Salok

    ਦੀਨ ਦਰਦ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨਾ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਨਾਥ ਅਨਾਥ ਸਰਣਿ ਤੁਮ੍ਹ੍ਹਾਰੀ ਆਇਓ ਨਾਨਕ ਕੇ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਾਥ ੧॥
    Ḏīn ḏaraḏ ḏukẖ bẖanjnā gẖat gẖat nāth anāth. Saraṇ ṯumĥārī ā▫i▫o Nānak ke parabẖ sāth. ||1||

    The saviour from misery and hurt of the poor, the helper of the forlorn. I am at your door creator, holding the coattails of Guru Nanak.


    ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
    Eight stanzas hymn.

    ਪਾਰਜਾਤੁ ਇਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਮ ਕਾਮਧੇਨ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਮ
    Pārjāṯ ih har ko nām. Kāmḏẖen har har guṇ gām.



    A tree fulfilling all your wishes is another name for the creator. Like the cow of heaven singing virtues of the creator fulfilling all your wishes.

    ਸਭ ਤੇ ਊਤਮ ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਕਥਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਸੁਨਤ ਦਰਦ ਦੁਖ ਲਥਾ
    Sabẖ ṯe ūṯam har kī kathā. Nām sunaṯ ḏaraḏ ḏukẖ lathā.

    Highest of all is the study and discourse about the creator. Through hearing about the creator’s understanding, sorrow and pain dissipate.

    ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਮਹਿਮਾ ਸੰਤ ਰਿਦ ਵਸੈ ਸੰਤ ਪ੍ਰਤਾਪਿ ਦੁਰਤੁ ਸਭੁ ਨਸੈ
    Nām kī mahimā sanṯ riḏ vasai. Sanṯ parṯāp ḏuraṯ sabẖ nasai.

    Creator’s virtues take hold in a pious heart. In the company of the pious all malaise dissipates.

    ਸੰਤ ਕਾ ਸੰਗੁ ਵਡਭਾਗੀ ਪਾਈਐ ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਈਐ
    Sanṯ kā sang vadbẖāgī pā▫ī▫ai. Sanṯ kī sevā nām ḏẖi▫ā▫ī▫ai.

    The company of the pious is found by the most fortunate ones. Serving the pious is through following on understanding of the creator.

    ਨਾਮ ਤੁਲਿ ਕਛੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਹੋਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਾਵੈ ਜਨੁ ਕੋਇ ੮॥੨॥
    Nām ṯul kacẖẖ avar na ho▫e. Nānak gurmukẖ nām pāvai jan ko▫e. ||8||2||

    Nothing exists comparable to the understanding of the creator. Guru Nanak,very few through teacher Guru achieve creator’s understanding.

    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Ambarsaria ji,

    I want to express my gratitude at this series you are writing about sukhmani Sahib. The prayer itself is deeply meaningful and beautiful and your insight into it is most helpful.

    Since I have been reading it in my Google reader, it wouldn't show here that I have read it at all.

    I encourage you to keep writing about it. You are doing more good than you know.

    Mai Harinder Kaur ji thanks.

    Any suggestions feel free.

    I have done: Salok Baba/Sheik Farid ji ke; Rehraas Sahib; Kirtan Sohila as well all of sukhmani Sahib (I am trying to post One Pauri/Sabad to encourage dialog).

    I might attempt:
    japji Sahib, anand Sahib and Jaap Sahib next.

    Any wishes in order or other let me know and if I can I will be happy to do so.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Ambarsaria ji,

    You're welcome.

    I would encourage you to tackle Japji Sahib after you finish this series. It is the essence of Sikhi, some of our deepest and yet most accessible prayers. I have read that it is a commentary of the Mool Mantar. If so, what a commentary!
