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.

ਸਾਰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੫

Sarag Mehala 5

सारग महला ५

Saarang, Fifth Mehl:

Raag Sarang Guru Arjan Dev, Ang 885

ਗੋਬਿਦ ਜੀਉ ਤੂ ਮੇਰੇ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਅਧਾਰ

Gobidh Jeeo Thoo Maerae Pran Adhhar

गोबिद जीउ तू मेरे प्रान अधार

O Dear Lord of the Universe, You are the Support of my breath of life.

ਸਾਜਨ ਮੀਤ ਸਹਾਈ ਤੁਮ ਹੀ ਤੂ ਮੇਰੋ ਪਰਵਾਰ

Sajan Meeth Sehaee Thum Hee Thoo Maero Paravar

साजन मीत सहाई तुम ही तू मेरो परवार

You are my Best Friend and Companion, my Help and Support; You are my family.

ਕਰੁ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਧਾਰਿਓ ਮੇਰੈ ਮਾਥੈ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਏ

Kar Masathak Dhhariou Maerai Mathhai Sadhhasang Gun Gaeae

करु मसतकि धारिओ मेरै माथै साधसंगि गुण गाए

You placed Your Hand on my forehead; in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, I sing Your Glorious Praises.

ਤੁਮਰੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਤੇ ਸਭ ਫਲ ਪਾਏ ਰਸਕਿ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਧਿਆਏ

Thumaree Kirapa Thae Sabh Fal Paeae Rasak Ram Nam Dhhiaeae

तुमरी क्रिपा ते सभ फल पाए रसकि राम नाम धिआए

By Your Grace, I have obtained all fruits and rewards; I meditate on the Lord's Name with delight.

ਅਬਿਚਲ ਨੀਵ ਧਰਾਈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਕਬਹੂ ਡੋਲਤ ਨਾਹੀ

Abichal Neev Dhharaee Sathigur Kabehoo Ddolath Nahee

अबिचल नीव धराई सतिगुरि कबहू डोलत नाही

The True Guru has laid the eternal foundation; it shall never be shaken.

ਗੁਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਬ ਭਏ ਦਇਆਰਾ ਸਰਬ ਸੁਖਾ ਨਿਧਿ ਪਾਂਹੀ

Gur Naanak Jab Bheae Dhaeiara Sarab Sukha Nidhh Panhee

गुर नानक जब भए दइआरा सरब सुखा निधि पांही

Guru Nanak has become merciful to me, and I have been blessed with the treasure of absolute peace

Tathai Saar Na Jaanee Guru Baajo

ਤਤੈ ਸਾਰ ਨ ਜਾਣੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਬਾਝਹੁ ਤਤੈ ਸਾਰ ਨ ਜਾਣੀ ॥

ततै सार न जाणी गुरू बाझहु ततै सार न जाणी ॥

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.

The frecuency of Wahiguru

Wahiguru is present within us all, as the frecuency of Naam.

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

Thank you Ji Harsharan paji. Whenever my profile status changes, I try to post Gurbani or a shabad relating to it. (If I can remember lol) Thus there are shabads that may not follow the topics, as those are for previous status'.

Bani: Raag Sorath, Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj.

ਨਾਨਕ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮਿ ਨਿਸਤਾਰਾ ਸਬਦਿ ਰਤੇ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਹਾ

Naanak Raam Naam Nisathaaraa Sabadh Rathae Har Paahaa

नानक राम नामि निसतारा सबदि रते हरि पाहा

O Nanak, through the Lord's Name, one is emancipated; attuned to the Shabad, he finds the Lord.

In this line above, Dhan Dhan Satguru Amar Das Maharaj, is telling us, if you want to get freed from the cycle of births and deaths, and meet the Lord, just get attuned to the Shabad.

Now we may ask, how to get attuned to the Shabad within?

The answer is, Naam Simran.

Our Guru Sahibans, in each ang of the Bani, have blessed us with their Daya Meher, by constantly reminding us, that if one is a sikh and wants to get reunited with Him, there is only one way, and that is of Shabad Guru, of Naam, through its Simran alone.

WHAT IS NAAM AND HOW TO MERGE IN NAAM?

ਨਾਮੈ ਤੇ ਸਭਿ ਊਪਜੇ ਭਾਈ ਨਾਇ ਵਿਸਰਿਐ ਮਰਿ ਜਾਇ

Naamai Thae Sabh Oopajae Bhaaee Naae Visariai Mar Jaae

नामै ते सभि ऊपजे भाई नाइ विसरिऐ मरि जाइ

From the Naam, everyone originated, O Siblings of Destiny; forgetting the Naam, they die away.

ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਚਾ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਨਾਮੇ ਨਾਮਿ ਸਮਾਏ

Har Kaa Naam Sachaa Man Vasiaa Naamae Naam Samaaeae

हरि का नामु सचा मनि वसिआ नामे नामि समाए

The True Name of the Lord comes to abide in the mind, and through the Name, one merges in the Name.

Raag Sorath Guru Amar Das

In the first line above, Dhan Dhan Satguru Amar Das Maharaj, tells us, that Wahiguru, Naam or Shabad is the same thing, and that everything was created by this Naam.

All the Khands, the Brahmands, the material or subtle universes upon universes, gods, devis, devtas, all species of life forms ...absolutely everything was created by Naam alone.

Then is the second line, He is telling us, that this Naam, is achieved only, by meditating upon it, and then it is this very Naam, which makes us merge in it.

So wonderful, so beautiful no?

Through Naam, we merge in Naam, and become one with Naam.

After going through these words full of wisdom of our Guru Sahib Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj, one feels, that pitifully, the whole world is blind and ignorant, by getting entangled in manmat, through so many other diversified activities, rituals, etc....

The Bani of our Guru Sahibans, is very clear, in terms of what is True Bhakti, it is we manmukhs, who turn our faces, and do not want even to hear such truths...

Everything depends on us, if we follow Gurmat as it is in essence, we shall become one with Wahiguru.

If not, we shall wander in the cycle of births and deaths...Then too, we think we are wise, and we proudly say, we are His devotees ....

Sat Sree Akal.
