Dhan Dhan Bhagat Namdev ji

Simran Jee,

Wow, this quotation above is one of the best one I am reading in a long time.

I say so, because now we know through Bhagat Nam Dev and His utter devotion, how to please and make happy our beloved Wahiguru.

The whole world is constantly complaining and blaming Wahiguru, but a true Bhagat, a true Gurmukh, of that avastha, cares only in pleasing Wahiguru.

Sat Sree Akal.

Hanji paji Harsharan, Thank you Ji to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji who have embedded the Bhagats bani within their hirde. Bhagat Namdev Ji had that sharda in Waheguru.

Who is a true devotee of Wahiguru?

Most of us take pride and have a strong feeling that we are devotees of Guru Jee or Wahiguru, as we do this or that, or go and there, or because we are born in a particiular community, and so on........

But Dhan Dhan Satguru Amar Das Maharaj, tells us in Raag Ramkali and in a just few words about who God consideres His real lovers and devotees.

ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ਭਗਤੁ ਜਨੁ ਸੋਈ

Har Naam Dhhiaaeae Bhagath Jan Soee

हरि नामु धिआए भगतु जनु सोई

One who meditates on the Lord's Name, is His only humble devotee.

So now let us be sincere with us, and not look around turning away our faces, by asking ourselves, do i do my own manmat, or do I implicitly follow the instructions above mentioned by Third Patshahee?

Bhakti is not difficult at all, it is very simple as Guru Jee very well knows about our weaknesses, but it is we who make difficult Gurmat, by going the other way round; so in the end we achieve nothing and go empty handed from this world, as we wasted our lives after mere shadows or agyanta.

There is still time to amend ourselves and retake the path of Gurmat, which definetely takes us back to Sach Khand at His Lotus Feet.

ਏਕੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੀਐ ਜਾ ਤੂ ਤਾ ਕਿਆ ਹੋਰਿ

Eaek Sabadh Beechaareeai Jaa Thoo Thaa Kiaa Hor

एकु सबदु बीचारीऐ जा तू ता किआ होरि

I dwell upon the One Word of the Shabad. You are mine-what else do I need?

Raag Sree Raag, Bani Satguru Nanak Dev Maharaj.

In this tuk above of First Patsahhee, He is telling us, that when one does His Bhakti as per means of His Simran; that is most complete Bhakti which we can offer Him.

We need not do anything else. As He says: Jhaa toon taa kia hor? When Sachay Patshah Wahiguru is with us, who else do we need to please or satisfy.

There is a saying: haathee ke pau meh, sabh ka pau.

Let us fear none, that if I do not worship this or that, or do not do this or that, something bad may happen..., or, let me worship several, in case if someone fails, there are still some to surely assist me...what a petty or narrow minded thinking.

He Wahiguru, is the adhaar of all. And all means, all deities all entities. So if anyone has anything, it is had from Him; so, is it not wise to directly worship Wahiguru rather than the lower deities or gods?

We all know, we are made of 5 tattwas and three gunas(sato, rajo and tamo). But in devoting ourselves to Wahiguru or to others, there is a huge difference.

For example Ravan, was asur or rakshash from mother´s side, he had much of rajo and tamo gun, and as we all know, he worshipped Brahma and Shiva very much with penance, and he had their darshan and asked for boons, and he almost became invincible....

But let us ask ourselves, did his severe bhakti ever removed the evil roots in him ?

Did his kaam, krodh, lobh, moh or ahankar ever diminish? Inspite of doing so much bhakti, and having darshans of the gods,he died like a dog, as the evil in him got even multiplied

On the other side, the elephant who offered a flower to Narayan, when attacked by a crocodile, had much of sato gun..... and was helped by Vishnu Jee, who took him to his abode in Baikunth

So we can see, by worshipping these gods and godesses, and with any of the three gunas or combined among them, we can at most reach their abodes, which are much within the realms of Maya, and even with our deep bhakti and reverence for them, our basic nature does not change.

On the other side, the Bani tells us : Prabh ka simran, man kee mael jae, Prabh ka Simran trishna sabh bhoojeeye, Prabh ka Simran garbh na baseh and so on ......with His bhakti.

This makes us to think. That no matter even if we are full of sins, or nothing of sato gun , but much much of rajo and tamo gun, or even be a rakshash, then too, by the Bhakti of His Simran, all the filthy layers of sanskaras, of karmas, of desires .... upon us,. get removed and thus we get freed from the wheel of eighty four.

Even if we are illiterate or donkeys, than too, by His Bhakti we become Brahmgyanis.

So if by worshipping Wahiguru we attract divine virtues and ony goodness, why should we waste our time on stone worthy deities or entities in comparison with Wahiguru, howsoever fascinating they may seem to us?

Who knows, what amount of swasaas are remained in our destiny....

Then too, we must bear in mind, only those can worship Him, to those whom wants to do so ...

it is not in our hands at all to worship Him, no matter howsoever chaturaaee or plannings we may do ....

Just to conclude, if we have even a penny of common sense, let us do the real bhakti of worshipping Him alone.

None other deserve it.

Only He, Sachay Patshah Wahiguru Akal Purukh.

Saacha Sahib, Sachaa Nao.

Only the Bhakti of the one Truthful and eternal Wahiguru, can bring in us purity, serenity, peace, bliss, and unquenchable hunger and thirst of loving Him at all times.

THE IMPORTANCE OF LOVE IN DEVOTION





THE LORD HAS MADE HIS OWN


AND I AM DRENCED IN HIS LOVE




EVEN WERE MY BODY PUT TO FLAMES


I WOULD NOT FLINCH FOR A MOMENT



EVEN WERE I TO LOOSE MY LIFE


I WOULD NOT BREAK THE BOND OF HIS LOVE



HOW CAN THE JEWEL OF LOVE


BE OBTAINED FOR NOTHING?


IN EXCHANGE FOR MY VERY BEING


I BOUGHT HIM, THE PRICELESS ONE



THE LORD FOR WHOM BRAHMA SOUGHT IN VAIN


I HAVE FOUND HIM WITHIN MY OWN BODY


SAYS KABEER: I HAVE BECOME FREE


FROM THE TIES OF HOPES AND DESIRES;


I HAVE MET THE LORD AND AM BLESSED


WITH UNSHAKABLE FAITH IN HIM



THE LORD HAS MADE ME HIS OWN


AND I AM DRENCHED IN HIS LOVE.




KABEER, THE WEAVER OF GOD´S NAME

The secret of secrets, for God realization,

by

Dhan Dhan Satguru Sachay Patshah

in Raag Suhi

The whole world is in one way or the other after God realization. So many dharmas, so many philosophers, so many prophets, so many gods, so many godesses,

so much jap, tap, poojas, paaths ....

Each and everyone claiming its own way or method, being the true one....and from there on, start all the controversies, quarrels,wars ...

But, we are lucky enough with the blessings of Wahiguru, to have a Perfect One among us, like Fifth Patshahee, who in just a sentence of few words, reveals us the secrets of secrets in a simple language, direct to the point.

Not like others, who may need volumes upon volumes to express themselves and leave us confused in the end.

In Gurbani, a word or two, a sentence, or a couplet maybe enough, or self sufficient by itself to conevy us the message, which is intended by Guru Jee. Otherwise donkey may memorize the whole Bani, but if their chit is not clean, they will remain hypocrites and manmukhs. For Gurbani is pure, so paviterta, purity is a must in us, to comprehend it in the right manner.

Gurbani is magical, is marvelous, is indescribable in its sweetness and excellent in the truths contained in it, far richer then any, and beyond any parralell in the whole creation.

Following are the words of Guru Jee:

ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਪਾਇਆ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਸਗਲ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਪਾਏ

Abinaasee Paaeiaa Naam Dhhiaaeiaa Sagal Manorathh Paaeae

अबिनासी पाइआ नामु धिआइआ सगल मनोरथ पाए

The Imperishable Lord is obtained, meditating on the Naam, and all one's wishes are fulfilled.

He says, to realize him, nothing, nothing else is needed, only a pure heart and mind, full of love and devotion, in order to make possible our meditating on Him, through His Naam simran.

And the fact is, we do many many other things, almost everything.

But this one thing bhakti, mentioned by Fifth Patshahee, seldom anybody does it.

Because we are more concerned about our own concepts of sikhee, as per what we have seen others doing, and heard from others, since we were born, than really paying attention to what the Bani is telling us to do, in each and every Ang of it, which is nothing else than, His chintan, through His Naam bhakti.

NO TIME..NO TIME.

I Knelt To Pray But Not For Long,
I Had Too Much To Do.


I Had To Hurry And Get To Work
For Bills Would Soon Be Due.

So I Knelt And Said A Hurried Prayer,

And Jumped Up Off My Knees.
My Religious Duty Was Now Done
My Soul Could Rest At Ease.....

All Day Long I Had No Time
To Spread A Word Of Cheer
No Time To Speak Of God To Friends,
They'd Laugh At Me I'd Fear.

No Time, No Time,

Too Much To Do,
That Was My Constant Cry
No Time To Give To Souls In Need


But At Last The Time Came,

The Time To Die,
I Went Before The Lord.

I Came, I Stood With Downcast Eyes.

For In His Hands God Held A Book;

It Was The Book Of Life.


God Looked Into His Book And Said
'Your Name I Cannot Find,

I Once Was Going To Write It Down...

But Never Found The Time'

P.S : I just found and went through this prayer poetry today, and I found that apart from interesting, it is the picture of most of us, like we are in a constant rush, even in our time into His devotion.

God is a very jealous lover, He does not want anything from us, just our mind. Once the mind is given, then He gives Himself to us in exchange.

Gobind Jeeo toon mere pran adhaar

A beautiful Shabad from the Bani of Fifth Patshahee in Raag Saarang, where Guru Jee tells us, about Wahiguru being His sole objective of His devotion, and how through His kirpa, one joins Sadh Sangat, does the right bhakti, and one obtains the treasure beyond measure, which is Wahiguru Himself.

Ŧaṯai sār na jāṇī gurū bājẖahu ṯaṯai sār na jāṇī.

Without the Guru, they know not the essence of the Reality, know not the essence of the Reality.

And all we have to do, is to tune ourselves to it, through His Simran.

Sat Sree Akal.
