sure type in sri granth..in google..and explore the rest.

I have downloaded Gurbani nirvaan, which is an app. It is awesome as the search is so easy that you just have to type the first letters of the words of shabads and the whole shabad comes up. It has transliteration too.

A tuchh wadeeayee of  Beant Wahiguru Akal Purukh

 

For endless ages, there was only utter darkness. There was no Earth or sky; there was only His Command. There was no day or night, no Moon or Sun; God sat in primal and profound meditative position.

There were no sources of speech or food, no air or water. There was no creation or destruction, no birth or death. There were no continents, regions, seven oceans, rivers or flowing water.

There were no heavenly realms, Earth or nether regions of the underworld. There was no destruction or time. There was no hell or heaven, no birth or death, no cycle of reincarnation.

There was no Brahma, Vishnu or Shiva.

No one was seen, except the One Lord. There was no female or male, no social class or caste to be born into; no one experienced pain or pleasure.

There were no people of celibacy or charity; no one lived in the forests.

There were no saints or seekers of living in peace. There were no yogis, no wandering pilgrims, no religious robes; no one called himself the master. There was no chanting or meditation, no self-discipline, fasting or worship.

No one spoke or talked in duality.

He Himself created and rejoiced; He Himself valued everything.

There was no purification, no self-restraint, no rosary beads. There were no Gopis, no Krishna, no cows or cowherds. There were no tantras, no mantras and no hypocrisy; no one played the flute.

There was no karma, no dharma, no buzzing fly of Maya. Social class and birth were not seen with any eyes. There was no emotional attachment, no death inscribed upon the forehead; no one meditated on anything. There was no slander, no seed, no soul and no life. There was no Gorakh and no Maachhindra.

There was no spiritual wisdom or meditation, no ancestry or creation, no reckoning of accounts. There were no castes or social classes, no religious robes, no Brahmin or Kh'shaatriya.

There were no demi-gods or temples, no cows or Gaayatri prayer. There were no burnt offerings, no ceremonial feasts, no cleansing rituals at sacred shrines of pilgrimage; no one worshipped in adoration.

There were no Muslims, there was no Qazi. There was no Shaykh, or pilgrims to Mecca.

There was no king and no worldly egotism; no one spoke of himself.

There was no love or devotion, no Shiva, no energy or matter.

There were no friends or companions, no semen or blood.

He Himself has been the banker, and He Himself has been the merchant.

There were no Vedas, Korans or Bibles, no Simritees or Shaastras. There was no recitation of the Puraanas, no sunrise or sunset.

The Unfathomable Lord Himself was the speaker and the preacher; the unseen Lord Himself saw everything.

When He so willed, He created the world. Without any supporting power, He sustained the Universe.

He created Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

He fostered enticement and attachment to Maya.

Rare is the person who listens to the word of the Guru's Shabad.

He created the creation, and watches over it; His command is over all.

He formed the planets, solar systems, nether regions and brought what was hidden to manifestation.

No one knows His limits.

This understanding comes from the perfect Guru. O Nanak, those who are attuned to the Truth are wonderstruck; singing His glorious praises, they are filled with wonder (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1035).
 

He established the Earth, the sky and the air, the water of the oceans, fire and food. He created the Moon, the stars and the Sun, night and day and mountains; He blessed the trees with flowers and fruits.

He created the demigods, human beings and the seven oceans; He established the three worlds (life in water, on land and in the air) (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1399).

Not the Sun, the Moon, the planets, the seven continents, the oceans, food, or the wind - nothing is permanent. You alone, Lord, You alone (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 144).
 

In the heavenly paradise, in the nether regions of the underworld, on the planet Earth and throughout the galaxies, the One Lord is pervading everywhere (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 207).
 

There are billions of regions and planets. There are billions of moons, suns and stars (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 275).
 

Many millions are the fields of creation and galaxies. Many millions are the skies and solar systems. Many millions are divine incarnations. He has unfolded Himself in so many ways. He has expanded His expansion of creation many times. Forever and ever, He is the One, the One Universal Creator. Many millions are created in various forms. From God they emanate, and into God they merge once again. His limits are not known to anyone. O Nanak, God exists by Himself. (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 276).
 

He created the Sun and the Moon; night and day, they move according to His Will (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 580).
 

Only call the One permanent (immortal), who does not have destiny inscribed upon His Forehead. The Sky and the Earth will pass away; He alone is permanent. The day and the Sun will pass away; the night and the Moon will pass away; the hundreds of thousands of stars will disappear. He alone is permanent; Nanak speaks the truth (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 64).
 

There are planets, solar systems and galaxies. If one speaks of them, there is no limit, no end.

There are worlds upon worlds of His creation.

As He commands, so they exist.

He watches over all, and contemplating the creation, He rejoices.

Nanak says, it is really hard to describe (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 8).
 

You Yourself created the Earth and the two lamps: the Sun and the Moon (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 83).

Sat Sree Akal.

AJ  DA HUKAMNAMA SRI DARBAR SAHIB SRI AMRITSAR, 
ANG 696, 
08-Dec.-2017

ਜੈਤਸਰੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ਘਰੁ ੧ ਚਉਪਦੇ   
ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ 
ਮੇਰੈ ਹੀਅਰੈ ਰਤਨੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਹਰਿ ਬਸਿਆ ਗੁਰਿ ਹਾਥੁ ਧਰਿਓ ਮੇਰੈ ਮਾਥਾ ॥ ਜਨਮ ਜਨਮ ਕੇ ਕਿਲਬਿਖ ਦੁਖ ਉਤਰੇ ਗੁਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦੀਓ ਰਿਨੁ ਲਾਥਾ ॥੧॥  ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ ਭਜੁ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਭਿ ਅਰਥਾ ॥   ਗੁਰਿ ਪੂਰੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਜੀਵਨੁ ਬਿਰਥਾ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥  ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਮੂੜ ਭਏ ਹੈ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਤੇ ਮੋਹ ਮਾਇਆ ਨਿਤ ਫਾਥਾ ॥ ਤਿਨ ਸਾਧੂ ਚਰਣ ਨ ਸੇਵੇ ਕਬਹੂ ਤਿਨ ਸਭੁ ਜਨਮੁ ਅਕਾਥਾ ॥੨॥  

जैतसरी महला ४ घरु १ चउपदे   ੴ सतिगुर प्रसादि ॥  मेरै हीअरै रतनु नामु हरि बसिआ गुरि हाथु धरिओ मेरै माथा ॥   जनम जनम के किलबिख दुख उतरे गुरि नामु दीओ रिनु लाथा ॥१॥  मेरे मन भजु राम नामु सभि अरथा ॥   गुरि पूरै हरि नामु द्रिड़ाइआ बिनु नावै जीवनु बिरथा ॥ रहाउ ॥  बिनु गुर मूड़ भए है मनमुख ते मोह माइआ नित फाथा ॥   तिन साधू चरण न सेवे कबहू तिन सभु जनमु अकाथा ॥२॥  

Jaitsree, Fourth Mehl, First House, Chau-Padas:  

One Universal Creator God.

By The Grace Of The True Guru:  The Jewel of the Lord's Name abides within my heart;  the Guru has placed His hand on my forehead.  

The sins and pains of countless incarnations have been cast out.

The Guru has blessed me with the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and my debt has been paid off. ||1||

 O my mind, vibrate the Lord's Name, and all your affairs shall be resolved.  

The Perfect Guru has implanted the Lord's Name within me; without the Name, life is useless. ||Pause||  

Without the Guru, the self-willed manmukhs are foolish and ignorant; they are forever entangled in emotional attachment to Maya.  

They never serve the feet of the Holy; their lives are totally useless. ||2||

ਹੀਅਰੈ = ਹਿਰਦੇ ਵਿਚ। ਗੁਰਿ = ਗੁਰੂ ਨੇ। ਮੇਰੈ ਮਾਥਾ = ਮੇਰੈ ਮਾਥੈ, ਮੇਰੇ ਮੱਥੇ ਉੱਤੇ। ਕਿਲਬਿਖ = ਪਾਪ। ਰਿਨੁ = ਕਰਜ਼ਾ, ਵਿਕਾਰਾਂ ਦਾ ਭਾਰ।੧। ਮਨ = ਹੇ ਮਨ! ਸਭਿ = ਸਾਰੇ। ਅਰਥਾ = ਪਦਾਰਥ। ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ = ਪੱਕਾ ਕਰ ਦਿੱਤਾ। ਬਿਰਥਾ = ਵਿਅਰਥ।ਰਹਾਉ। ਮੂੜ = ਮੂਰਖ। ਮਨਮੁਖ = ਆਪਣੇ ਮਨ ਦੇ ਪਿੱਛੇ ਤੁਰਨ ਵਾਲੇ। ਤੇ = ਉਹ {ਬਹੁ-ਵਚਨ}। ਸਾਧੂ = ਗੁਰੂ। ਅਕਥਾ = ਨਿਸਫਲ, ਅਕਾਰਥ।੨।

ਰਾਗ ਜੈਤਸਰੀ, ਘਰ ੧ ਵਿੱਚ ਗੁਰੂ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਚਾਰ-ਬੰਦਾਂ ਵਾਲੀ ਬਾਣੀ। ਅਕਾਲ ਪੁਰਖ ਇੱਕ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਨਾਲ ਮਿਲਦਾ ਹੈ। (ਹੇ ਭਾਈ! ਜਦੋਂ) ਗੁਰੂ ਨੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਸਿਰ ਉੱਤੇ ਆਪਣਾ ਹੱਥ ਰੱਖਿਆ, ਤਾਂ ਮੇਰੇ ਹਿਰਦੇ ਵਿਚ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਦਾ ਰਤਨ (ਵਰਗਾ ਕੀਮਤੀ) ਨਾਮ ਆ ਵੱਸਿਆ। (ਹੇ ਭਾਈ! ਜਿਸ ਭੀ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਨੂੰ) ਗੁਰੂ ਨੇ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਦਿੱਤਾ, ਉਸ ਦੇ ਅਨੇਕਾਂ ਜਨਮਾਂ ਦੇ ਪਾਪ ਦੁੱਖ ਦੂਰ ਹੋ ਗਏ, (ਉਸ ਦੇ ਸਿਰੋਂ ਪਾਪਾਂ ਦਾ) ਕਰਜ਼ਾ ਉਤਰ ਗਿਆ।੧। ਹੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ! (ਸਦਾ) ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਸਿਮਰਿਆ ਕਰ, (ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ) ਸਾਰੇ ਪਦਾਰਥ (ਦੇਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਹੈ)। (ਹੇ ਮਨ! ਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਸਰਨ ਪਿਆ ਰਹੁ) ਪੂਰੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਨੇ (ਹੀ) ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ (ਹਿਰਦੇ ਵਿਚ) ਪੱਕਾ ਕੀਤਾ ਹੈ। ਤੇ, ਨਾਮ ਤੋਂ ਬਿਨਾ ਮਨੁੱਖਾ ਜ਼ਿੰਦਗੀ ਵਿਅਰਥ ਚਲੀ ਜਾਂਦੀ ਹੈ।ਰਹਾਉ। ਹੇ ਭਾਈ! ਜੇਹੜੇ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਆਪਣੇ ਮਨ ਦੇ ਪਿੱਛੇ ਤੁਰਦੇ ਹਨ ਉਹ ਗੁਰੂ (ਦੀ ਸਰਨ) ਤੋਂ ਬਿਨਾ ਮੂਰਖ ਹੋਏ ਰਹਿੰਦੇ ਹਨ, ਉਹ ਸਦਾ ਮਾਇਆ ਦੇ ਮੋਹ ਵਿਚ ਫਸੇ ਰਹਿੰਦੇ ਹਨ। ਉਹਨਾਂ ਨੇ ਕਦੇ ਭੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਦਾ ਆਸਰਾ ਨਹੀਂ ਲਿਆ, ਉਹਨਾਂ ਦਾ ਸਾਰਾ ਜੀਵਨ ਵਿਅਰਥ ਚਲਾ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ।੨।

राग जैतसरी, घर १ में गुरु रामदास जी की चार-बन्दों वाली बाणी। अकाल पुरख एक है और सतगुरु की कृपा द्वारा मिलता है। (हे भाई ! जब) गुरु ने मेरे सिर ऊपर अपना हाथ रखा, तो मेरे हृदय में परमात्मा का रतन (जैसा कीमती) नाम आ बसा। (हे भाई ! जिस भी मनुख को) गुरु ने परमात्मा का नाम दिया, उस के अनकों जन्मों के पाप दुःख दूर हो गए, (उस के सिर से पापों का कर्ज) उतर गया।१। हे मेरे मन! (सदा) परमात्मा का नाम सुमिरन कर, (परमात्मा) सारे पदार्थ (देने वाला है)। (हे मन ! गुरु की शरण में ही रह) पूरे गुरु ने (ही) परमात्मा का नाम (ह्रदय में) पक्का किया है। और, नाम के बिना मनुख जीवन व्यर्थ चला जाता है।रहाउ। हे भाई! जो मनुख अपने मन के पीछे चलते है वह गुरु ( की शरण) के बिना मूर्ख हुए रहते हैं, वह सदा माया के मोह में फसे रहते है। उन्होंने कभी भी गुरु का सहारा नहीं लिया, उनका सारा जीवन व्यर्थ चला जाता है।२।

( Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh )
ਗੱਜ-ਵੱਜ ਕੇ ਫਤਹਿ ਬੁਲਾਓ ਜੀ !
ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ !!
ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹਿ !!

The Soul's Nature

 

We souls are complete beings by ourselves, and don’t require the bodies we now inhabit. We have our own spiritual senses, mind, and intelligence.

Our identities are unique, eternal, and unchanging, and can never be lost by merging with some homogeneous any other spiritual entity, apart from Wahiguru of course..

As spiritual beings, we are by constitution, eternally happy and full of knowledge.

Sadness, ignorance, and death are unnatural for us, and that’s why we struggle against those things in this world.

While God is infinite, we souls are small and are subordinate to Him. We exist to serve Him in love.

Our intrinsic nature—our dharma—is to serve. That quality cannot be separated from us, just as heat cannot be separated from fire, and sweetness cannot be separated from sugar.

We will find full satisfaction only in re-discovering our unique service to God.

We have free will and some independence. We can choose to love and serve Wahiguru Akal Purukh, or we can choose not to, and can try to enjoy separately from Him in the material world, through man, maya and senses, thus perpetuate our stay in the mayavee creation in the endless cycles of births and deaths .

While in the material world, we can choose to take up spiritual practices that will re-awaken our love for Him, and channelize it through His bhakti.

For just saying Wahiguru I love you or I believe in you, we can never ever merge  and become one with Him.

Our thoughts, our intentions have to be materialized through His bhakti, in order to achieve total purity, and thus  become worthy ,through His kirpa, His bakshish, to return back to our true Home Sach Khand, the realm of  eternal ultimate Truth, bliss and wisdom.

Sat Sree Akal.

The path to Mukti as per Gurbani.

 

ਜਿਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਚੇਤਿਓ ਸੁ ਅਉਗੁਣਿ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਇ

Jin Har Har Naam Na Chaethiou

Seh Aougun

Aavai Jaae ||

Those who have not contemplated the Name of the Lord, Har, Har,

are unworthy;

they come and go in reincarnation.

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

I downloaded the app suggested above, and it offers downloads outside of Guru Granth Sahib. So I researched the Varan Bhai Gurdas Ji and it seems quite valuable and the Shri Dasam Granth Sahib. Both seem to be entirely legitimate of course and invaluable. 

I read in another post there is  Nihang Nitnem as well. 

My question is, if the Guru Granth Sahib is the 11th Guru, where does the realm of authentic Nitnem stop?

Also, these Nitnem, albeit authentic, differ how in terms of authority from the Guru Granth Sahib?

Edit: The app is great by the way and, as stated above, has the transliteration, which is invaluable to a non gurmukhi speaker trying to learn, like myself.

If this is right thn why it’s written in Guru Granth Sahib ji about reincarnation, jam doots, chitar gupt. I believe that we do take birth again and again.. I’ve came across so many times about doots and reincarnation from Guru Granth Sahib ji.

    • For a Sikh to eat "any" meat that happens not to be Halal is to make himself into a lobhi dog. You're using this to justify eating non-Jhatka meat? The 2 minute video you posted was a beautiful summary of Sikh Rehit by the Hazuri Babaji. It was not a long exposition, however. Are you seriously claiming that Hazuri Sikhs eat whatever meat they can find, just happening to weakly ask if it's Halal? Most Nihungs support Jhatka? I would genuinely like to know one that does not. The link you posted does not support your assertion. It talks about the theory behind Jhatka and how that's the Nihung way. How does that support your assertion that there is no specific Nihung maryada regarding meat?

    • That's actually not true, bro. More children usually means more religious children.  For one thing, in large families, each individual child has less pull on the head of the family. The head is more respected, and therefore the children obey more. They learn that they are not the be all and end all. That there is someone above them. Why would you want to teach them individually? It is considered more effective to teach people as a  group. Guru Sahibs call this concept Sangat. Humans are social animals, and the more people that follow a certain thing, the more firm they are likely to be in that belief. Furthermore, in a typical two-child family, there's one girl, one boy. Each has new clothes and other stuff for every year of their life. They get an entitled mentality. A single child is the apex of entitlement mentality.  In large families, clothes and other items get handed down. Both the giver and receiver learn to decrease their moh-maya and haumai regarding material things. And that's the basis of religion.
    • A muslim work colleague mentioned that some won't drain all the blood in order to add weight and sell for more.
    • No. Our head should belong only to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, not a white devil hag who does not care about Sikhs at all and whose monarchy has attempted to destroy Sikhi and its people through countless war-crimes. Many of us, including myself, in the west are guilty of adopting western thinking far too much to form and support our beliefs when we should try to make more effort in being simple and using only Guru ji as our source of knowledge and wisdom. We can read about philosophers etc. and we do have to adapt to our surroundings so we do not become irrelevant in the world but there should be a limit because, at the moment, so many are unable to acknowledge let alone find this balance between work and personal life. There is too much conflation in thinking and it is taking us away from our goal.
