Mat vich ratan jawahar manik je ik Gur ki Sikh suni

Recommended Posts

What do you understand by the pangti above? 

I thought I understood it. However despite having recited it for a number of years, I realised it has a much deeper meaning. 

The words ratan jawahar manik actually mean veraag, gyan and naam which come into the budhi when we listen to the bachan of the True Guru.

Pretty much what you said.

After reading Fairdkot Teeka of course. :grin

ਹੇ ਸਿਧੋ (ਜੇ) ਜਬ (ਗੁਰ ਕੀ) ਗੁਰੂਓਂ ਕੀ (ਇਕ) ਏਕਤਾ ਕੀ ਸਿਖ੍ਯਾ ਸੁਣੀਤੀ ਹੈ ਭਾਵ ਜਬ ਗੁਰੋਂ ਸੇ ਏਕ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਕਾ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਸੁਨੀਏ ਤਬ ਅਪਨੀ (ਮਤਿ) ਬੁਧੀ ਮੈ ਹੀ ਰਤਨ (ਜਵਾਹਰ) (ਮਾਣਿਕ) ਮਿਲ ਜਾਤੇ ਹੈਂ॥ ਰਤਨ ਨਾਮ ਵੈਰਾਗ ਦਾ ਹੈ ਔਰ ਜਵਾਹਰ ਕਹੀਏ ਪਰਮੇਸ੍ਵਰ ਕਾ ਸਾਖਯਾਤ ਹੋਣਾ (ਮਾਣਿਕ) ਜੋ ਮਨਨ ਕਰਨਾ ਹੈ ਭਾਵ ਸ੍ਰਵਨ ਮਨਨ ਨਿਦਿਧ੍ਯਾਸਨ ਆਦੀ ਸਭ ਗੁਣ ਬੁਧੀ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਹੀ ਮਿਲ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਹੈਂ॥

I read a sakhi from janam sakhi bhai bala which was about a thief. His mum told him to cover his ears whenever he passed a dharamsala. 

He did this until one day he was pricked ny a thorn and he heard the words that devte dont blink.

After that he got arrested and the police made a nakli durga maa to appear to him in order to get a confession from him as he denied all charges of theft. 

He looked and saw she never blinked. That one sikhiya of the Guru saved him. I always thought this pangti was connected to that sakhi so I understood it differently. I must have read this pangti there.
