I Am Blind, O Creator

Sabad is Infinite; we are finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this transcreation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad the same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.

Screens, Pandemic & Children | The Sikh Cast

A conversation with Dr. Shimi Kaur Kang to learn how to treat screens like food: consume healthy tech, limit junk tech, and eliminate toxins. Between video games, scrolling on phones, socializing on Zoom, and online learning, children spend far more time on screens than before the pandemic. It has been an unprecedented moment in history where children have spent more time indoors than outdoors. Psychologists are alerting parents and educators that there will be periods of epic withdrawal once schools, activities, and social life return to normal.

Introducing Paigham-i-Goya: Expression of Love, new translations of a selection of ghazals from Bhai Nand Lal “Goya.” Today’s podcast begins with a recitation of Bhai Nand Lal’s ghazal in Persian, followed by a new English transcreation, the result of a unique collaboration between Dr. Fatima Fayyaz and Dr. Nadhra Khan of Lahore University of Management Sciences, Damanpreet Singh, writer, and graduate student, and Inni Kaur of SikhRI, followed by a discussion between Daman and Inni about the beauty of the ghazal and the transcreation process. Follow Damanpreet and Inni as they discuss their learnings and challenges while engaging with the words of Bhai Nand Lal. The unique and symbolic meanings that these ghazals reveal are a treat for those who yearn to get a glimpse into the court of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib. Author: Bhai Nand Lal “Goya” Collection: Divan-i-Goya Transcreators: Fatima Fayyaz, Inni Kaur, Nadhra Khan, and Damanpreet Singh Persian Narrator: Gholamhossein Sajadi English Narrator: Ryan Gillis Persian ز فیض مقدمت ای آبروی فصل بهار جهان چو باغِ ارم پُر شد است از گلزار تبسّمِ تو جهان را حیات می بخشد قرارِ دیدهٔ صاحب دلانِ پر اسرار بغیرِ عشق خدا هیچ عشق قایم نیست بغیرِ عاشقِ مولا همه فنا پندار به هر طرف که نگاه می کنی روان بخشی نگاه توست که در هر طرف بود جاندار خدا که در همه حال است حاضر‌ و ناظر کجا ست دیده که بیند به هر طرف دیدار بغیرِ عارفِ مولا کسی نجات نیافت اجل زمین و زمان را گرفته در منقار همیشه زنده بود بندهٔ خدا گویا که غیر بندگیش نیست در جهان آثار English Translation O pride of spring, with the grace of Your arrival, The world, just like the garden of paradise, abounds with flowers. Your smile graces the world with life, It is the ointment that soothes the eyes of men whose hearts can discern divine secrets. No love can last unless graced by Divine love, All shall be annihilated other than the one in love with the Divine. Everywhere You look, You grace life, It is Your gaze that bestows life in every direction. The Divine is always present and watchful, Where is the eye that can witness these manifestations in every direction? It is only the Divine’s mystic who attains liberation, As time and space are held in the beak of fate. Goyā: The Divine’s slave becomes immortal, As other than this bondage, nothing in the world has permanence.
