Gur Satgur ka jo sikh akhai so bhalke uth har Naam dhiawai.
Udam kare bhalke parbhati ishnan kare Amritsar nawai.
Updesh Guru har har japjapai sabh kilwikh pap dokh leh jawai.
Phir chare diwas Gurbani gawai behndian uthdian har Naam dhiawai.
Jo sas giras dhiae mera har har so gursikh guru man bhawai.
Jisno dyal howai mera soami tis gursikh Guru updesh sunhawai.
Jan Nanak dhoor mangaitis gursikh ki jo aap japai awreh Naam japawi.
(Guru Granth Sahib, Page 305).

He who calls himself the disciple of the Satguru must wake up early in the morning (three hours before sunrise) and meditate on the Divine name. He must shake up all his laziness, take his bath, and meditate on His name. As taught by the Guru he must meditate on the Gur-mantra "Waheguru" and thus erase all the impressions of the wrong karmas (actions) he has done in various births and rebirths. Then at day dawn sing hymns in His praise. The Sikh who every moment keeps his mind fixed on the Divine name is dear to the Satguru. The Satguru showers his grace on him and shows him the path of at-one-ment (blends the Sikh with himself). Nanak begs the dust of the feet of such a gursikh, who himself meditates on the Divine name and directs others to do so.

This Shabad is a great defination of true sikh. Like this there are many more shabads which define a sikh or the sikh way of living. Only and only SGGS ji's Gurbani can be the true rehetnama or code of conduct. I wonder why we sikhs are ignoring this fact and are just impesising to follow other rehetnamas.

Soul Jyot ji

Well this should forever solve all arguments on whom is, or is not a Sikh! We will do the Hukam of the True Guru if we all keep this in mind!. Why are humans so intent in dividing themselves, in stereo typing, in going against the One who is in All?

We are always separating , always dividing: Khalsa , non-Khalsa. Who is Sikh, who is not Sikh. The one who keeps the kesh, the one who does not keep the kesh. The one who seats on the floor and the ones who seats in the chair, the high caste m the law case the merchant, the farmer, my God! When will we give up the ego and follow the Gurbani and ONLY the Gurbani?

Its no different in any other faith, mind you. After all even the Apostle Paul had to remind his audience that: 'The letter kills but the spirit vivifies' Legalism , that is the unthinking, unwise, selfish elaboration that adds what is not there to the Word of God, is poison my friends, poison! What is perfect and divine cannot be improved by man.

Be Blessed!

Roopsidhu ji

Indeed, why? Is the SGGS the Sik's True, and only, Guru, or is the Sik's Guru a mindless attachment to tradition and custom? I am curious:) to know, when, and if ever, are all the Sikhs going to let the SGGS be their code of conduct.

May we all be blessed!

There are many gems in SGGS Ji,
In the beginning and all through out, emphasis is given to truth and truthful living, remaining true to yourself. If you are true to yourself, you will be true to others and will always have good qualities.
There are agencies who are interested in keeping sikhs busy in minor points mentioned above. We should focus on improving our status around the world.
On a side note, current situation of sikhs cutting hairs is a truth and shall remain a truth.
It is sad that we have started identifying a sikh by his/her birth in sikh family. Beauty of sikh religion is that anybody is welcome and at the same time it is not your birthright as emphasized by the fact that Guru gaddi was not automatically granted to Guru's son.
But people are after us and want to make it a religion similiar to other ones. May be some of us are doing it unknowingly. This also points to the fact that all learned people/ historian need not be correct all the time. Their dredibility in soome cases may actually be a hinderance to true interpretation of history as their words are taken as authentic. Some people even misuse this and give wrong interpretaion to historical facts..

Hello Ballym ji

Very astute observation. Manipulators have always misrepresented, misinterpreted, and twisted the sayings of Holy men for their own gain and agendas. That is being the history of the religion of men. The advantage of being able to commune with God and being filled with Him , is that we can tell what is right and what is wrong, in many cases we just feel it. Unfortunately many people are religious but not spiritual , or not dedicated enough to really meditate on and follow the teaching of Word. They either do not understand or an unwilling to submit to the Hukam.

Praise the Naam

But one thing is common in every Sikh, irrespective of his/her Jathebandi or Section and that is
"We belong to KHALSA PANTH,
Our GURU is Sri GURU GRANTH Saheb ji,
Our father is Guru Gobind Singh ji,
Our mother is Mata Saheb Kaur ji ,
Our birth place is Sri Anand pur Saheb.
Our identity is Five Kakkars
We all obey the teachings of Gurbani,
The world knows us as Sikh ."
Let us come on one platform on the basis of the principles which are common amongst
us and let us not discuss for which others feel odd/bad.

Hi Arman ji!

Thanks, Beautiful!:wah: Question may one acquire the instrumental, without the words and then dub the letter of the song in another language or is that considered sacrilege? I mean I think it would do such a great work of letting people know in their own tongues about the Gurbani

Gurfateh!

Hi

Well it does say our GURU is the Sri Guru Grant Sahib. All I am saying is that if Sikhs have a GURU, then it seems obvious that Sikhs ought follow ONLY the GURU

Hi Curious ,

you mean instead of Gurmukhi n english , you want to write in other language , i feel there is no problem with that !



heres another beautiful shabad in voice of Snatam kaur ji with enlish subtitle
YouTube- Ek Onkaar


;)
 
ਪਵਨ ਗਵਨ ਜੈਸੇ ਗੁਡੀਆ ਉਡਤ ਰਹੈ
Pavan gavan jaisae guddeea ouddath rehai
As the kite remains flying untill wind blows,
ਪਵਨ ਰਹਤ ਗੁਡੀ ਉਡਿ ਨ ਸਕਤ ਹੈ ॥
Pavan rehath guddee oudd n sakath hai ||
And without wind ,kite cant fly.
ਡੋਰੀ ਕੀ ਮਰੋਰਿ ਜੈਸੇ ਲਟੂਆ ਫਿਰਤ ਰਹੈ
Doree kee maror jaisae lattooa firath rehai

As the top revolves untill the velocity and kinetic energy given by string remains,
ਤਾਉ ਹਾਉ ਮਿਟੈ ਗਿਰਿ ਪਰੈ ਹੁਇ ਥਕਤ ਹੈ ॥
Tao hao mittai gir parai hue thhakath hai ||
And its ego ends and it falls after end of the energy given by the string.
ਕੰਚਨ ਅਸੁਧ ਜਿਉ ਕੁਠਾਰੀ ਠਹਰਾਤ ਨਹੀ
Kanchan asudhh jio kutharee theharath nehee
The impure gold never is stable in the pot of goldsmith and remains moving,
ਸੁਧ ਭਏ ਨਿਹਚਲ ਛਬਿ ਕੈ ਛਕਤ ਹੈ ॥
Sudhh bheae nihachal chhab kai chhakath hai ||

But when its impurity is disolved and it becomes pure, it becomes stable inthe pot and
cant move.
ਦੁਰਮਤਿ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਭ੍ਰਮਤ ਚਤੁਰ ਕੁੰਟ
Duramate dubidhha bhramat chathur kunt
In the same way,with the dual mind , one always is under mirage,
ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਏਕ ਟੇਕ ਮੋਨਿ ਨ ਬਕਤ ਹੈ ॥੯੫॥
Guramat aek taek mon na bakat hai ||95|

But when mind is under control of teachings of sat-guru ,one can not talk about
hither and thither.

ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਹੋਇ ਦਇਆਲੁ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਕਰੇ ਤਾ ਸਾਈ ਕਾਰ ਕਰਾਇਸੀ ॥
Sahib hoe daeial kirapa karae tha saee kar karaeisee ||
One, upon whom the Merciful Lord bestows His Grace, performs His service.
ਸੋ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰੇ ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਮਨਾਇਸੀ ॥
So saevak saeva karae jis no hukam manaeisee ||
That servant, whom the Lord causes to obey the Order of His Will, serves Him.
ਹੁਕਮਿ ਮੰਨਿਐ ਹੋਵੈ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ਤਾ ਖਸਮੈ ਕਾ ਮਹਲੁ ਪਾਇਸੀ ॥
Hukam manniai hovai paravan tha khasamai ka mehal paeisee |
|
Obeying the Order of His Will, he becomes acceptable, and then, he obtains the Mansion of the Lord's Presence.
ਖਸਮੈ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੋ ਕਰੇ ਮਨਹੁ ਚਿੰਦਿਆ ਸੋ ਫਲੁ ਪਾਇਸੀ ॥
Khasamai bhavai so karae manahu chindhia so fal paeisee ||

One who acts to please His Lord and Master, obtains the fruits of his mind's desires.
ਤਾ ਦਰਗਹ ਪੈਧਾ ਜਾਇਸੀ ॥੧੫॥
Ta darageh paidhha jaeisee ||15||
Then, he goes to the Court of the Lord, wearing robes of honor. ||15||
