So, what I'd like to do here, is put the panthic Ardaas into context. We all know it, but what is the story behind the lines? The Ardaas is built on the shoulder's of giants - who are those giants? Why are certain things mentioned? So please, if you have information, please add. :)

In the original, the lines are not numbered. I have numbered them here for ease of reference.

All errors in reproducing the Gurmukhi, the transliteration and translation are mine.

Sat Sri Akaal,

Focus on Shabad BHAGAUTI

First contradiction infused in MIND is

Bhagauti or Bhagwati

Bhagwati
नामभगवती
अर्थदेवी दुर्गा, जो भाग जो छह गुण, अर्थात।, वर्चस्व, धर्म, शोहरत, समृद्धि, बुद्धि और भेदभाव, लक्ष्मी की उपाधि कहा जाता है कि पास

वर्चस्व
वर्चस्व {varchasv} = ABSOLUTE POWER(Adjective)

वर्चस्व रखना {varchasv rakhana} = DOMINATE(TransitiveVerb)

Usage : The villa dominates the town

वर्चस्व वर्ग {varchasv varg} = SUPREMACY CLAUSE(noun)


वर्चस्व/प्रधानता/2.शासन {varchasv/pradhanata/2.shasan} = DOMINATION(Noun)

Usage : mastery of the seas

Is Bhagauti or Bhagwati a feminine power or routine of operating system as in old belief system.

As male and female routines and subroutines were identified, framed and divided in old belief system.

If Bhagwati is ABSOLUTE power and killer of DEMONS.

Where was the power hidden when ruled and exploited.

So old philosphy was a reject. It is Focus on Natures Absolute Power, as a energy source to all. Living and Non Living. It is external and internal for Survival of all for Males and Females.

Absolute is not one time, power risen and killing demons or in person in power.

it is everlasting, ever pervading.

Bhagauti is Absolute Power or Energy Source with all pervading power.

Its.connecting and deriving energy and focus

Pritham Bhagauti

First Focus on Natures Absolute Power.

it is a very good subject.
ਭਗੌਤੀ means the prayer of God's devotee.
ਭਗੌਤੀ also means sword, but here i will stick with a prayer.
I could be wrong but in my opinion it was read by guru Gobind singh jee. after guru teg bahadur simria sabh nau nidh aaeve dhai, it mentions ਸੇਈ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਮੇਲ, ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਮਿਲਿਆਂ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮ ਚਿੱਤ ਆਵੈ, ਜੋ ਜੀ ਆਏ ਸੋ ਰਾਜੀ ਜਾਏ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਚੜ੍ਹਦੀ ਕਲਾ ਤੇਰੇ ਭਾਣੇ ਸਰਬੱਤ ਕਾ ਭਲਾ.
later on it is expandedd to many other sacrifices and other subjects. thank u ishna. I will not say jee because i am an old man

Hi, I didn’t realize you’re Chaz Singh.. I remember you. I don’t understand why this site blocked you. What happened to Original, do you remember him? The discussions back then were so good, took my Bhagti to a higher vibration communicating with you all.

Admin please don’t block him or anyone else that speaks the Truth.

Blocked also...few of us were blocked in the same week lol...no reason no message from admin....was really odd...

I emailed admin directly as why but they didn't reply...I only found out others were blocked because I had their direct personal email addresses...

We discussed it on other forums and seems a few others were suddenly not able to access over the years...they moved to other forums like sikhawareness.com which seem to allow as much talk about meditation/Simran etc...

This forum always seemed to have an issue with it..but yeah...no hard feelings...just a shame such a good forum lost itself over the years...
