Harbansj24 Ji,Naam Simran is the process of cleansing the soul. As the soul gets cleansed, a strange sense of pure joy or Chardi Kalan starts enveloping the person.
Fateh Gyani Ji, there is so much Guru Maharaj has blessed us all with through every Shabad ji.. Here is another beautiful Shabad ji that am very fond of :Thanks Kiram ji..for yet another flight into sheer Bliss...among all the mundane argumentative posts...:happy:
Can you help me understand the following passage.
"In Maghar beautiful are they who sit with their Beloved God.How can their glory be measured whom the Lord blends with Himself?The body and mind of those who have the companionship of saints bloom with the Pervading God.They, who are without the society of the pious persons, dwell all alone.Their pain never departs and they fall under the clutches of the death's minister.They, who have enjoyed their Lord, are ever seen standing in His service.Their neck is set with the jewels, emeralds and rubies of God's Name.Nanak desires the dust of the feet of those who fall for shelter at the Lord's door.They, who meditate on the Master in the month of Maghar are not born again."
It begins describing a person who is pious ( have the companionship of saints ) and has long served God ( are ever seen standing in His service ). Is it then after this spiritual journey that he is then freed from rebirth?
Is that last sentence a metaphor for the final stage of life? Finally is this portion ( Their pain never departs and they fall under the clutches of the death's minister ) to mean they are to be reborn?
That you very much for providing for your understanding of the shabad as I requested while proving mine quite wrong. Since I make no claim of knowledge of scripture that is not my own I doubly in your debt.
