POINTS WORTH PONDERING.


  1. The Rahao Verse contains the core idea. Going by this verse, this Shabd is basically a prayer from the Sikh to his Guru (shabd). The Rahao verse is indicating that the Sikh’s mind is prepared to listen, understand, believe and follow affectionately the messages of the Shabd. That is the spiritually practical message of ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਭਾਈ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Eh Mun Tera Bhai.

  2. The supremacy of the message of the shabd requires that we accept its messages of the Shabd with total submission. That is the essence of the first part of the Rahao verse: ਸੁਣਿ ਮੀਤਾ ਧੂਰੀ ਕਉ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਈ ॥ Sunn Mita Dhuri Ko Bal Jayi. The word Dhuree is literally dust. In Gurmat it denotes humility in submission.

  3. The Guru has qualities that makes Him the best option for me to realize my Creator. His qualities are related to ENLIGHTENING ME of things that help me in my spiritual journey. The first VIRTUE of the Guru is mentioned in Verse 1. ਏਕੁ ਪਿਤਾ ਏਕਸ ਕੇ ਹਮ ਬਾਰਿਕ ਤੂ ਮੇਰਾ ਗੁਰ ਹਾਈ ॥ Ek Pita Ekus Kay Hum Barak Tu Mera Gur Hayi. My Guru enlightened me that we are all children of the One Creator – this enlightenment is crucial in realizing the Creator.

  4. The remaining verses (2, 3, and 4) make clear of other Virtues of my Guru and the corresponding relationship I desire with my Guru so that He may guide me towards realization of my Creator within me

End.
