The Shabd of Guru Arjun Pathshah appears in Dhnasree Raag on page 681 of the SGGS. It is a popular shabd. It is among the first few shabds that kirtan learners are taught and many Sikhs have committed it to memory.

This article makes an attempt to explore the meanings of the Shabd by applying the Gurbani Framework – using Gurbani to explain Gurbani concepts; thus refraining from relying on non-Gurbani sources.
