Soordaas Baani

11 posts in this topic

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Daas has been going around the internet for a while, and is very confused about Bhagat Soordaas and His Baani in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

I have read that Bhagat Soordas Ji only has 1 line in SGGS:
ਛਾਡਿ ਮਨ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਮੁਖਨ ਕੋ ਸੰਗੁ ॥

But I also read that line may be Kachi baani, and the Soordas Shabad Written By Guru Arjan Dev Ji (According to the Mehla) was actually written by Bhagat Soordaas Ji:
ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ਸਾਰੰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ਸੂਰਦਾਸ ॥
ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਸੰਗ ਬਸੇ ਹਰਿ ਲੋਕ ॥
ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਅਰਪਿ ਸਰਬਸੁ ਸਭੁ ਅਰਪਿਓ ਅਨਦ ਸਹਜ ਧੁਨਿ ਝੋਕ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ਦਰਸਨੁ ਪੇਖਿ ਭਏ ਨਿਰਬਿਖਈ ਪਾਏ ਹੈ ਸਗਲੇ ਥੋਕ ॥
ਆਨ ਬਸਤੁ ਸਿਉ ਕਾਜੁ ਨ ਕਛੂਐ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਬਦਨ ਅਲੋਕ ॥੧॥
ਸਿਆਮ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਤਜਿ ਆਨ ਜੁ ਚਾਹਤ ਜਿਉ ਕੁਸਟੀ ਤਨਿ ਜੋਕ ॥
ਸੂਰਦਾਸ ਮਨੁ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਹਥਿ ਲੀਨੋ ਦੀਨੋ ਇਹੁ ਪਰਲੋਕ ॥੨॥੧॥੮॥


When I was looking around the net, I saw that people said that Bhai Baano had inserted Kachi Baani into the Banno Bir (Mirabai, Soordas, etc.)

I never understood what Kachi Baani was inserted, so I went online again and looked at some Puratan Saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji and I found this:

It looks as if there is a whole shabad to the 1 line that is attributed to Bhagat Soordas Ji. I attempted to type it up:

ਛਾਡਿ ਮਨ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਮੁਖਨ ਕੋ ਸੰਗੁ ॥
ਕਹਾਭਏਪੀਪਾਂਇਪੀਆਏਬਿਖਨਤਜੈਭੁਇਅੰਗ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ਕਾਂਗਾਕਾਹਕਪੂਰਚੁਗਾਂਏਸੁਆਨਨਵਾਇਐਰੰਗ ॥
ਖਰਕਉਕਹਾਅਗਰਕੋਲੇਪਨੁਮਰਕਟਭੂਖਨਅੰਗ ॥੧॥
ਪਾਹਨਪਤਿਤਬਾਨਨਬੇਧੇਰੀਤੇਹੋਇਨਿਖੰਗ ॥
ਸੂਰਦਾਸਓਇਕਾਰੀਕਮਰੀਚੜਤਨਦੂਜੇਰੰਗ ॥੨॥੧॥



Can anyone explain what is happening here? Is the shabad typed above Kachi Baani? Is the Soordas Shabad that starts with "ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਸੰਗ ਬਸੇ ਹਰਿ ਲੋਕ ॥" actually written by Bhagat Soordas Ji instead of Guru Arjan Dev Ji?

Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhidran Wale explains this in their katha. 

When Bhagat Soordas Ji  was asked recite their bani by Panjve Paatshah, they read the first line and went into samadhi. (Chhad Man Har Bimukhan Ko Sang).

Then Guru Ju composed Sarang M5 Soordas. When Bhagat Ji came out of samadhi, they did complete the shabad, but Guru Ji  said we will only accept the first line for Gurbani

I have heard of this story before. How does that explain the full shabad after the first line then? Why do some Puratan Saroops say Bhagat Soordas Ji instead of M:5?

No disrespect for Bhai Gurbachan Singh, but this story is hard to believe after I saw the pictures.

Anyone know what Gurbani Scholars who did Khoj on Puratan Saroops say about this?

You should listen to sant Gurbachan singh Ji's katha of the shabad on ang 1253. They say that guru sahib finished the shabad but bhai banno's puratan Bir has bhagat Ji's complete shabad that they finished after coming out of samadhi

The pictures actually prove the story. There are many Birs that have the full shabad. But those with the Guru's signature and those written by Baba Deep Singh Ji and Bhai Mani Singh Ji will only have the one line.

Who are these Gurbani scholars you are wanting sangat to present.  How many puratan saroops have you looked at to say Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh ji doesn't make sense?  Which puratan saroops have you looked at so far? Name them and when you looked at them and where you looked at them?

This is why I'm asking.

The story is weird because Bhai Bhanno insterted Kachi Baani into the Bir he copied from what I have read online. They say he included the Mirabai Shabad (Which is Kachi Baani).

All I know is Scholars like Bhai Gian Singh Nihung, Bhai Randhir Singh of the SGPC, Joginder Singh Vedanti, and Joginder Singh Talwara did Khoj of Puratan Saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj.

Does anyone know what they have said?

You have presented what looks to be three different Saroops.  Which Saroops are these?

Here is katha by Giani Sant Singh ji Maskeen about this one shabad and I hope this clarifies the confusion.

There are many Bir written by Bhai Bhanno. All the Bir written by Bhai Bhanno WILL HAVE Kachi Bani. Hence the Saroop written by him are not our GURU because it includes Kachi Bani.

    • Blase means to be indifferent or unconcerned. However, you perceive my writing on Dasam Bani being reintroduced to be both nonchalant (why don't we bring in another French word) but also emotional and angry at the same time. That kind of makes for an oxymoron; contradictory terms.  When attempting to have any genuine and fruitful discussion I have experienced it is helpful to not speculate or make conjecture about the viewpoints of another. If curious or in doubt, just ask; ask with the innocent interest of a child. Other genuine level-headed people will gladly oblige. Fools like myself may otherwise find injury in your guesswork.   Bringing in Samparda Kathavachaks fixes the symptom not the illness. The root problem that will fester and multiply is unaddressed. Is this a strategy for the long term that will bring unity and togetherness in the Panth? No. I have posted an excerpt of my last post on this topic below for your convenience, often my arguments become TL;DR.     Again, conjecture and scorn for a person you genuinely want to have dialogue with may not be useful. Some may misinterpret your heartfelt intentions.   If I'm not mistaken, it was rescinded after just two years!  Here is the difference: When the Sikhs took the jagir from the Mughals, they took it after deliberation, discussion, and the approval of the Sarbat Khalsa Baba Harnam Singh Dhumma has built no such discussion and consensus building into his strategy, not even with the Sant Samaj. Heaps of them condemn his political choices.  Getting the discourse changed to Gurmat is good. But the underlying problems remain unaddressed; problems that do the most to hold the Panth back as outlined in my above post.  The jagir allowed the Sikhs to consolidate different jathas under the leadership of Kapur Singh into the Dal Khalsa. Factions were brought together.  They used the political calm to develop their autonomous power and establish their sovereignty This was political power and control that they were able to grow for the Panth. The jagir was taken away very quickly, but look at what they accomplished in that time. The Khalsa was brought together in unity to fight for our future prosperity.  I highly doubt the SIkhs who had been hunted down by Zakariya Khan suddenly became enthralled by his friendship. They took the jagir in a collective, panthic decision and likely knew they could be double-crossed. But they mustered their forces and were in a stronger position for when it did happen.  In all the major issues of the Panth that I have outlined in my previous posts, Baba Harnam Singh Dhumma has made little headway in ameliorating them.  No political autonomy is established for the Panth. The Indian government regulated the SGPC, the SGPC in turn is run by Badal and the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal). There is no autonomy or control of the Panth in its own affairs, we are led by the string where the political elite wish to go.  As I stated previously: Baba Harnam Singh Dhumma's strategy gives the Panth no autonomy, no control, and he has not pushed forward the Panth's interests in any worthwhile long-lasting way.   
    • It is by Kavi Santokh Singh Suraj Parkesh Granth
    • This is exactly the same thing which Muslim Kings and army was saying about Sikhs a few centuries ago. In fact, these Muslim rulers were saying that no Sikh is left, however, Sikhs did become rulers of the land after couple of Genocides. I am not saying it is going to be easy with Hindu India, but you are under estimating Sikhs. 
    • Sakhi from  Subedar Baghel Singh “Jivan Anubhav” his autobiography. He says one day after his simran he sat down to rest. His Astral body (sookham sahreer) separated from his body went through the roof at a very high speed. His Astal body left the earth behind and ended up in a place where there were various Sant mandalis. He was surprised to see himself in two separate place but mere thought of his body brought him back inside his body. Similar stories can also be found in pachmi parkash jeeven sant Karam Singh Hotimardan and Se Kinehya Jeeveni Sant Harnam Singh Rampurkhera.
