ਮਃ ੩ ॥
मः ३ ॥
Third Mehl:
ਮਲਾਰੁ ਸੀਤਲ ਰਾਗੁ ਹੈ ਹਰਿ ਧਿਆਇਐ ਸਾਂਤਿ ਹੋਇ ॥
मलारु सीतल रागु है हरि धिआइऐ सांति होइ ॥
Malaar is a calming and soothing raga; meditating on the Lord brings peace and tranquility.
ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਅਪਣੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੇ ਤਾਂ ਵਰਤੈ ਸਭ ਲੋਇ ॥
हरि जीउ अपणी क्रिपा करे तां वरतै सभ लोइ ॥
When the Dear Lord grants His Grace, then the rain falls on all the people of the world.
ਵੁਠੈ ਜੀਆ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਹੋਇ ਧਰਣੀ ਨੋ ਸੀਗਾਰੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
वुठै जीआ जुगति होइ धरणी नो सीगारु होइ ॥
From this rain, all creatures find the ways and means to live, and the earth is embellished.
ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਸਭੁ ਜਲੁ ਹੈ ਜਲ ਹੀ ਤੇ ਸਭ ਕੋਇ ॥
नानक इहु जगतु सभु जलु है जल ही ते सभ कोइ ॥
O Nanak, this world is all water; everything came from water.
ਗੁਰ ਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਕੋ ਵਿਰਲਾ ਬੂਝੈ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਮੁਕਤੁ ਸਦਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੨॥
गुर परसादी को विरला बूझै सो जनु मुकतु सदा होइ ॥२॥
By Guru's Grace, a rare few realize the Lord; such humble beings are liberated forever. ||2||

 

This kirtan is done in Raag Malhar. Raag Malhar is famous for having the cooling/rain effect on the practitioner of this Raag.

Wasn't sure what to put in here, but thought I'd keep this thread going. 

Soohee, Fifth Mehla:

When You come to mind, I am totally in bliss. One who forgets You might just as well be dead. That being, whom You bless with Your Mercy, O Creator Lord, constantly meditates on You. ||1||

O my Lord and Master, You are the honor of the dishonored such as me. I offer my prayer to You, God; listening, listening to the Word of Your Bani, I live. ||1||Pause||

May I become the dust of the feet of Your humble servants. I am a sacrifice to the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. I enshrine Your Ambrosial Word within my heart. By Your Grace, I have found the Company of the Holy. ||2||

I place the state of my inner being before You; there is no other as great as You. He alone is attached, whom You attach; he alone is Your devotee. ||3||

With my palms pressed together, I beg for this one gift; O my Lord and Master, if it pleases You, I shall obtain it. With each and every breath, Nanak adores You; twenty-four hours a day, I sing Your Glorious Praises. ||4||9||56||

Why do they have a Ravidas depiction? He didn't do idol worship at all! Even Ravidassias don't believe Ravidas did idol worship.

Don't know Paji, he maybe taking a break. Yes, he was and still is a good member, with lots to learn from his posts, that helped me.

Not sure.. It is mostly to listen to, not really to look at the slide show :p

    • Sorry to hear this penji.  MisterrSingh Paji is right, Karams play a part and we all have to bhog them. It is hard, but what I sometimes do when I'm feeling low is to listen to shabads that will lift my spirits up.  Don't lose hope, it's a phase you're going through, nothing is permanent, so as Dally Paji once said to me think it's going change one day and it won't last.   Putting some shabads on for you. Do Ardas to Waheguru to help you to stay in their will.   Also, it may help to change some ways in your.  Eg: meet up with friends who you get on with for coffee/cold drink for a catch up.  Go and see some historical buildings or parks open to the public.  Read a new book, or treat yourself to something new from the stores.  Sit near swans and birds.      
    • low hanging fruit bro , they use the brilliance of Gurbani to hook the minds and hearts that need it and exploit the unaware by making it seem they can explain it properly to them . My Masi who is stuck with RS lot claims that the dehdhari Guru is necessary to explain Gurbani because people don't have the ability to understand by themselves .  YT : I have seen Gurbani shabads labelled as Namdhari shabads or Radha Soami shabads ... The whole point is to divert money and goods to their pockets from Guru ji's golak it is not to help anyone spiritually. on FB today a couple of guys are asking help of sangat to stop removal of Guru Granth Sahib from Ravidasia Gurdwara here in Uk https://www.facebook.com/SikhYouthBirmingham/?hc_ref=NEWSFEED&fref=nf BTW not saying Bhagat Ravidas followers are following pakhandi baba  but they are using Guru ji to get hold of Ravi Das' bani otherwise I don't think they have much scripture seperately. The committee at the place have stolen £70,000   
    • Veer ji weren't all Guru Sahiban and their mahals similar ages even if they were younger at marriage point  maybe only a year or two difference ? 
    • Why do some Pakhandi Babas use Sikh Gurbani to brainwash the innocent? Recently on Youtube I looked-up: "bahut janam bichde the madho", and saw so many Pakhandi Babas on the list of recommended, ranging from Radha Swami, Ravidassia, and some random Pakhandi Babas there and there. If they want to use Sikh bani they should at least promote the idea of Gurmat to bring people to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib, not themselves.
    • Alot of people assume that one kid equals high quality and healthy  while more kids equals low quality, malnutrition etc But if we look at our ithihas, the reverse is true. During puratan times, when Sikhs had a lot of kids they were more religiously observant(which means high quality) and they were more physically fit than us. Now when we have only one kid, our parents fail to raise that kid as a Sikh(meaning low quality) and they also tend to be fat kids on average which is not healthy either.    So here we are, today we are raising low quality and unhealthy fat kids when we have the lowest fertility rates in our history which is well below replacement level.  Meaning, in future our population will start to decrease because of this low fertility rate.
