Dhan Dhan Siri Guru Arjan Dev Ji is telling us in this Shabad about the importance of Naam. He is reminding us again and again that the Naam is the solution for all the Problems.


jw kau musklu Aiq bxY FoeI koie n dyie ]
lwgU hoey dusmnw swk iB Bij Kly ]
sBo BjY Awsrw cukY sBu Asrwau ]
Here Guru Ji is telling us: If a person is confronted with dire difficulties, and his condition is such that no body is offering any support. Friends are turned into enemies, and relations flee away deserting him/her. All the support is lost and there are no more hopes left.

iciq AwvY Esu pwrbRhmu lgY n qqI vwau ]
If this person remembers God, even the hot wind shall not touch him/her. The God’s Name is above all, can take care of anything and everything. Amidst of all the difficulties and uncertainties, God’s Name works as a Savior. (as ALL is HE HIMSELF, nothing else)

me neech understands that Guru Ji is telling us, we must not get scared of the hardships and must not always look for asylum from others. We must take asylum in God’s Remembrance- The cure for everything, The medicine for all the diseases……….

swihbu inqwixAw kw qwxu ]
Awie n jweI iQru sdw gur sbdI scu jwxu ]
Guru Ji is telling us that The Master(God) is the might of the mightless, (the power of the powerless). He does not come and go(not Mortal), He is always present(immortal), the permanent(ever present) and we come to know about Him(the TRUTH) through Guru’s word(shabad).

Me neech understand that manmat(own or others) does not let us believe 100% in the Truth Guru Ji is telling us again and again. Let us make alliance with Guru’s Shabad(and leave our manmat) and live the Truth Truthfully-Naam is the ultimate cure for everything.

Humbly asking for everybody’s forgiveness

He alone preserves and destroys. ||1||Pause||

What you describe in these passages is a God who preserves his failthful, and does so willingly and with love. Think of so many other paths where God (or gods) is portrayed as a tricky personality who continually set traps or creates tests for humans. They must work through the trap and pass the test to demontrate their loyalty and belief and faith.

Instead we have Waheguru who asks only for remembrance and meditation on his name. And in return so much is given. The One who gives 1000 percent.

Waheguru , The creator , the almighty never asked us to Remember HIm. He never has asked for this. It is we that who remember HIM not for HE wants it but for we need it.

Respected forum members

If this is true

The Gurbani (Sri Guru Granth Sahib, SGGS) makes it very clear that the Hukam, Shabad, Guru, God, Naam (Lord's Name), Divine Light, Word, etc., are virtually synonymous. Further, the Gurbani makes it very clear that the Hukam, Shabad, or Naam pervades the entire creation. It permeates the universe as butter in the milk, and fire in the wood. It is the unstruck celestial sound current that vibrates, creates, guides, controls, directs, sustains, and animates every particle of the cosmos.
(see Sikhism: Reflections On Gurbani)

Then remembering him is his directive.
