Kavi Kankan's Das Gur Katha

5 posts in this topic

I'm gonna dump this incomplete translation here, so I remember to try and finish it one of these days. It's from Kavi Kankan who was purportedly a darbari kavi in dasmesh pita's darbar:

 

ਤਿਨ ਕਾ ਸੁਤ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਸਭ ਗੁਰੂਅਨ ਸਿਰਮੌਰ।

Their [Guru Tegh Bahadur's] son, Gobind Singh the sovereign of all spiritual teachers (gurus)

 

ਜੈਸੇ ਅਵਿਤਾਰਨ ਬਿਖੈ ਕ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਨ ਸਮਾਨ ਨ ਔਰ।।

in the way no other amongst the avtaars is equal to Krishna 

 

 

ਸ੍ਵੈਯਾ - ਪੀਰਨ ਤੇ ਜਿਨ ਪੀਰੀ ਹਰੀ ਲੀਨੀ ਗੁਰਾਈ।

Swaiya - ......... or absorption of the spiritual to spirituality ??

 

 

ਸ਼ਾਹਨਿ ਸੋਂ ਪਤਿਸਾਹੀ ਹਰੀ ਅਰੁ ਮੀਰਨ ਕੀ ਜਿਨ ਮੀਰੀ ਗਵਾਈ।

Who can remove sovereignty from royalty and cause the affluent to lose their affluence.

 

 

ਚਾਰੋਂ ਹੀ ਬਰਨ ਮਿਲਾਯ ਦੀਏ ਜਿਨ ਕਾਹੂੰ ਮੈ ਨਾਂਹਿ ਰਹੀ ਬਿਸਨਾਈ (1) ।

Causing the four castes to mingle, who said they say will not remain Vaisnav

 

ਐਸੋ ਹੀ ਮੇਂ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਅਕਾਲ ਅਕਾਲ ਕੀ ਬਾਣੀ ਜਪਾਈ।

In this way, I Gobind Singh caused the bani of Akaal Akaal to be recited

 

ਸੋਹਤ ਹੈ ਕਲਗੀ ਤਿਹ ਸੀਸ ਪੈ ਹੀਰਨ ਕੀ ਜੜਤੀ ਸੋਂ ਜੜਾਈ।

Adorning a beautiful diamond set aigrette (kalgi) upon the head

 

ਇੰਦਰ ਕੀ ਕਲਗੀ ਹੂੰ ਤੇ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਚੰਦ ਔ ਸੂਰ ਤੇ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਵਾਈ।

More beautiful than the aigrette of Inder, brighter than the light of the sun and moon

 

 

ਮੋਤਿਨ ਮਾਲ ਬਸੈ ਗਰ ਪੈ ਜੈਸੇ ਸ਼ਯਾਮ ਗਰੇ ਬਨ ਮਾਲ (2) ਸੁਹਾਈ।

 

A rosary of pearls upon him like the beautiful garland tied to Shyam's neck

 

ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਕਹਾਵਤ ਹੀ ਜਿਨ ਤੀਨ ਹੂੰ ਲੋਕ ਮੈਂ ਕੀਨੀ ਗੁਰਾਈ।।

 

 

 

 

Footnotes:

ਵੈਸ਼ਨਵਪਣਾ, ਵਿਸ਼ਨੂੰ ਉਪਾਸ਼ਕ ਉੱਪਸ਼ਕ ਉੱਚ ਜਾਤੀ ਲੋਕ । ਉੱਚਤਾ । (ਅ) ਬੇ + ਆਸ਼ਨਾਈ = ਨਾ ਮਿਲਵਰਤਣ ।

 

(2)

ਬਨ ਦੇ ਫੁਲਾਂ ਦੀ ਮਾਲਾ ।

I have actually ordered Bindra's transliteration and will receive it in a few days.

Bindra has passed away (I'm sure I read that in the last few years somewhere?)

I had no idea that anyone had transliterated Gur Das Katha (I think Ami Shah might have done it, but that doesn't seem publically available yet?) 

Are you sure you are not talking about Sarup Kaushish's Guru kia sakhia, which is a different work?

Will double check.

    • Brother, you seem like a man who knows the score and can hazard a guess at the situation in the future by extrapolating current trends if they continue to develop unhindered. I have a question: where do you see the social and political landscape in Britain by 2099 if the Islamic question is not confronted? Will we sleepwalk into a country with a powerful Islamic coterie able to dominate political, economic, legal, and social circles? And what will such a scenario mean for non-Muslim minorities?
    • Here's a summary of this video: Tommy Robinson reports about the Manchester attack for the Alex Jones Show. Alex Jones reports on Pres. Macron of France saying terror attacks must be accepted as a part of life. Mayor Sadiq Khan of London says the same (it's "part and parcel" of living in a big city), and that he'll set up safe zones.  EU destroys internal and external borders, and brings in the Islamicists. Alex Jones says they're taking away British rights, whether they are Sikh British, xyz British, abc British (Interesting he mentions Sikhs first.) Tommy Robinson surveys the Islamophilic policies of the Government (Rotterham, etc.). What's it going to take for the Govt. to do something? 
      The Mayor of Greater Manchester works with Islamic radicals.
    • Most Sikhs are Sikhs-In-Name-Only, in fact most people of any religion have become in-name-only. Let's stop pretending the entire Panth has a moral background, some so-called "sikhs", have become so morally weak that I'd say Non-Sikhs have become more moral then them. It may be true that we are the best, but any so-called, "sikhs", are worse than even the worst of the worst, and are worse scum that you will meet anywhere.
    • I don't know if there are many situations, but you can tell who follows the Jatha of theit choice to the extreme, at least in the past, people would at least pretend to like each other, now they aren't even pretending.
    • There is something seriously wrong with the title of this thread.  A human death is never good. What kind of person are you that thinks its great news. You must have an evil mind and heart to think like this.    If people commit crimes they will be punished for them. In a lawful and just way. I am all bringing back hanging for people who commit bad crimes. But celebrating a murder.    may you enlightened youg one with a distorted mind.
