    Guru Sahib is addressing the humans as ‘baalak’- His children. Guru Sahib tells us: He, The Transcendent Lord Himself takes care of His Children, protects them, preserve them, nurture them.
    Sukh saant sahaj aanand- Comfort, Peace, tranquility, ultimate bliss;
    Guru ji tells us that His(Guru Ji's) service(Simran di ghaal) has been accepted and He is blessed with the comfort, peace and celestial bliss.
    Rahao tuk tells us- GOD IS THE CARE TAKER, AND THE PROVIDER…. WHEN OUR SEVA IS ACCEPTED BY HIM, ULTIMATE BLISS PREVAILS.

    Guru Ji says, God Himself heard the prayers of His devoted servants.
    God, the Great Lord has dispelled the diseases of the devoted servants and has provided them with life, His glory is so great.
    His sins/imperfections/(dokh-Ayb, ivkwr )/shortcomings are all pardoned as The Lord manifested His Might. (all that impairs our worth is forgiven by our Dear Lord when our seva is accepted).
    Guru Ji says, God awarded Him with the fruit of His mind’s desire.
    Guru Ji says, He is a Sacrifice unto God.

    Guru ji is telling us about the consequences of Waheguru Ji’s SEVA(PERFECT SEVA)- all desires are fulfilled, all sins are forgiven, diseases are cured, Anand hi Anand………..

    Seva- Simran, Surrendering ourselves to HIS WILL, Contemplation of Gurbani……

    humbly asking for everybody’s forgiveness

    Surinder Kaur ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    Could you please give us the page number of the above Shabad?

    As far I understand, Seva in Gurmat values is like fragrance of a flower which emits itself in all direction sans bias without asking or hoping for acceptance.

    there is difference between asking/hoping/praying/aasa AND lingering/getting attached/tamya/laalach/greed/trishna

    My opinion? When it truly is seva, it is not hard, not drudgery, not to be finished off as efficiently as possible. A person feels as if the seva is a blessing on him, on her. A remarkable gift that cannot be repaid. So one is left feeling so thankful. And one cannot seek a seva like this independently. It is not a matter of having the right attitude either. The Giver decides what the seva will be, how much, how long, how difficult.

    Angels like you make life worth living all over again. Always by my side. Guiding me and humbling me to understand the unseen.

    I wish I was a poet.
