    Forty Vaaran and 675 Kabitt-Savaiyye, were written by Bhai Gurdaas ji (d. 1636) at different periods of his life. He was then the honored scribe of Aad Bir, or first recession of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, thus his understanding and knowledge of Gurbaani can be held very close to Guru Sahib’s true intention with the Holy Word. Sikh tradition tells us that even though Guru Arjan Dev ji didn’t include Bhai Gurdaas ji’s writings in Sri Guru Granth Sahib, he awarded his Baani with the title
    Gurbaani di Kunji or ‘the Key to Guru’s Words.’


    ਗੁਰ ਸਿਖੀ ਬਾਰੀਕ ਹੈ ਖੰਡੇ ਧਾਰ ਗਲੀ ਅਤਿ ਭੀੜੀ॥

    gur sikhee bareek hai khanddae dhhar galee ath bheerree||

    The discipleship of the Guru is very subtle like a sword edge and narrow alley.



    ਓਥੈ ਟਿਕੈ ਨ ਭੁਲਹਣਾ ਚੱਲ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਉੱਪਰ ਕੀੜੀ॥

    outhhai ttikai n bhulehana chal n sakai oupar keerree||

    Mosquito’s and ants cannot stand there.



    ਵਾਲਹੁੰ ਨਿਕੀ ਆਖੀਐ ਤੇਲ ਤਿਲਹੁੰ ਲੈ ਕੋਲ੍ਹ ਪੀੜੀ॥

    valahun nikee akheeai thael thilahun lai kolh peerree||

    It is thinner than hair and as the oil of sesame is obtained after crushing it in the crusher with great difficulty, the discipleship of the Guru is not obtained easily.

    ਸਿਲ ਆਲੂਣੀ ਚਟਣੀ ਮਾਣਕ ਮੋਤੀ ਚੋਗ ਨਿਵੀੜੀ॥

    sil aloonee chattanee manak mothee chog niveerree||

    Like licking of the salt-less stone they pick up the rubies and jewels to eat.



    ਗੁਰਮੁਖ ਮਾਰਗ ਚਲਣਾ ਆਸ ਨਿਰਾਸੀ ਝੀੜ ਉਝੀੜੀ॥

    The gurmukhs repudiating all hopes and desires move on the way of detachment and tear down the veil of Maya.

    Holy congregation, the abode of truth and throne of the true Lord is the manasarovar for the gurmukhs.



    ਚੜ੍ਹ ਇਕੀਹ ਪਉੜੀਆਂ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਗੁਰ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਸਹੀੜੀ॥

    charrh eikeeh pourreeaan nirankar gur shabadh seheerree||

    Climbing the steps of non-duality they adopt the Word of the formless Guru.



    ਗੁੰਗੇ ਦੀ ਮਠਿਆਈਐ ਅਕਥ ਕਥਾ ਵਿਸਮਾਦ ਬਚੀੜੀ॥

    gungae dhee mathiaeeai akathh kathha visamadh bacheerree||

    They enjoy His ineffable story like they enjoyment by a dumb person of the sweets.



    ਗੁਰਮੁਖ ਸੁਖ ਫਲ ਸਹਜ ਅਲੀੜੀ ॥੫॥

    Through the natural devotion, the gurmukhs attain the fruit of delight.

    Bhai Vardas ji - Pauree 9, Vaar 20

    ਜਿਉ ਪਾਣੀ ਨਿਵਿ ਚਲਦਾ ਨੀਵਾਣਿ ਚਲਾਇਆ ।
    jiu paanee nivi chaladaa neevaani chalaaiaa|
    As water flows downwards and takes with it whosoever meets it (and makes it also humble),


    ਸਭਨਾ ਰੰਗਾਂ ਨੋ ਮਿਲੈ ਰਲਿ ਜਾਇ ਰਲਾਇਆ ।
    sabhanaa rangaan no milai rali jaai ralaaiaa|
    all the dyes mix up in water and it becomes one with every colour;


    ਪਰਉਪਕਾਰ ਕਮਾਂਵਦਾ ਉਨਿ ਆਪੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ।
    paraupakaar kamaanvadaa uni aapu gavaaiaa|
    erasing ego it does altruistic deeds;


    ਕਾਠੁ ਨ ਡੋਬੈ ਪਾਲਿ ਕੈ ਸੰਗਿ ਲੋਹੁ ਤਰਾਇਆ ।
    kaatdu n dobai paali kai sangi|ohu taraaiaa|
    it does not sink the wood, it rather makes the iron swim with it;


    ਵੁਠੇ ਮੀਹ ਸੁਕਾਲੁ ਹੋਇ ਰਸ ਕਸ ਉਪਜਾਇਆ ।
    vutday meeh sukaalu hoi ras kas upajaaiaa|
    it makes for prosperity when it rains in rainy season.


    ਜੀਵਦਿਆ ਮਰਿ ਸਾਧ ਹੋਇ ਸਫਲਿਓ ਜਗਿ ਆਇਆ ॥੨੦॥
    jeevadiaa mari saadh hoi sadhaliao jagi aaiaa ॥20॥
    Likewise, the holy saints getting dead in life i.e. removing their ego, making their coming to the world fruitful.

    Thought continues in pauree 21 - very good meditation there as well.
    I am glad you started this thread. Bhai Vardas has given us so much to think about - the fruit of devotion.

    You are absolutely right aad ji. But in this verse

    ਓਥੈ ਟਿਕੈ ਨ ਭੁਲਹਣਾ ਚੱਲ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਉੱਪਰ ਕੀੜੀ॥
    outhhai ttikai n bhulehana chal n sakai oupar keerree||

    Mosquito’s and ants cannot stand there.
    There is no such word that translates as Mosquito? In fact only half the sentence has been translated. Looks like the "cut and paste" has got lost in transit.

    Your knowledge as a non punjabi puts those that are punjabi and claimed to know all, to shame.:)

    I just deleted the message because i wanted to fix the wording. It was kind of messy. Mispelled French by the way.

    Thanks for noticing. Anyway -- not sure I put anyone to shame. My hunch, given the verse you were referring to -- is more a translator's construction of an idea that doesn't translate well at all into English. Given the verse is in poetic form, making it harder to do this to begin with.

    He is getting at the idea that ants on the ground and other (insects) things higher up in the air should be compared, as equally incompetent.

    Happens whenever in going from one language to another one is looking at intended meaning rather than explicit meaning.

    What do you say the line mean?

    The correct word is ਭੁਣਹਣਾ ਸੰਗਾ- ਭੁਣਭੁਣਾ. ਮੱਛਰ ਤੋਂ ਛੋਟਾ ਇੱਕ ਜੀਵ, ਜੋ ਹਵਾ ਵਿੱਚ ਉਡਦਾ ਕੁਝ ਕਠਿਨਾਈ ਨਾਲ ਦੇਖਿਆ ਜਾ ਸਕਦਾ ਹੈ, ਭੂੰਗਾ. ''ਓਥੈ ਟਿਕੈ ਨ ਭੁਣਹਣਾ, ਚੱਲ ਨ ਸੱਕੈ ਉੱਪਰਿ ਕੀੜੀ.'' (ਭਾਗੁ)
    It is an insect smaller than a Mosquito.

    In the first verse Bhai Gurdas ji is educating very simple minded people (most probably uneducated villagers)

    Bhai Sahib is explaining : Sikhi is like a fine(sharp) edged sword think of it as a very narrow alley.

    In the second verse he is elaborating how confined the path is by explainging that the path is so precise/fine that even an insect smaller than a Mosquito cannot balance on it a kidi(a very small ant) cannot walk over it.

    in Summary "Sikhi is a living living death."

    I may elaborate further next time.

    mannai hukamu rajaai guramukhi jaaiaa ॥6॥
    In accordance to the divine will, it behaves like a gurmukh does.

    It is very nice attempt. Yes, the earth is most humble and it has given humanity loads of things to survive. Our Food comes from the earth.Infact , all the metals and the other useful chemicals are all the product of the earth.The earth has not refused till date.it fulfills the needs of all.it has been doing since ages and shall continue to do in future as well. But what is our contribution to the earth.
    It may be remembered that the earth occupies only 1/4th of the area while the water takes the rest still the earth is more useful.
    yes, the earth is the most humble. True.

    Thanks for reminding us.

    Such is the effect of the Guru's teaching that the Sikh acquires the same qualifies as if a stone by touching a philosopher's stone has itself become another philosopher's stone.



    ਜੋਗ ਭੋਗ ਜਿਣਿ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਕਰਿ ਭਾਇ ਭਗਤਿ ਭੈ ਆਪੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ।
    jog bhog jini jugati kari bhaai bhagati bhai aapu gavaaiaa|
    Systematically, having won yoga as well as pleasures and getting immersed in devotion they have lost their fears.



    ਆਪੁ ਗਇਆ ਆਪਿ ਵਰਤਿਆ ਭਗਤਿ ਵਛਲ ਹੋਇ ਵਸਗਤਿ ਆਇਆ ।
    aapu gaiaa aapi varatiaa bhagati vachhal hoi vasagati aaiaa|
    When the ego vanished, God was not only realized as diffused all around, but also because of love for His devotees



    ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਵਿਚਿ ਅਲਖੁ ਲਖਾਇਆ ॥੨॥
    saadhasangati vichi alakhu|akhaaiaa ॥2॥
    He came under their control
    .

    Vaar 29 Pauree 2

    I think this is a truly bad translation of Bhai Vardas' gift of poetry. But the message in this vaar is just as truly amzaing. :unsure:
