Vahiguru ji ka Khalsa, Vahiguru ji ki Fatih!
The month of Chet (mid-March to mid-April) is the beginning of Nanakshahi, the Sikh New Year. It is Springtime. A time of change, of renewal, of preparing to blossom again. We see this as a time for preparation and renewal even in our physical homes, with “spring cleaning,” planting seeds in our gardens that will bloom later in the year, preparing ourselves and our environments for new arrivals.
What if, this spring season, we focus on our internal cleansing?
What if we consciously decide to plant seeds in our internal garden?
What if we long for the Beloved to grace us by entering our body-homes?
Grace is always present. To feel the Presence, we need to plow the mind, plant virtuous seeds, remove vice-filled weeds, be vigilant, and patiently await the blossoms.
May the desire awaken to bring the “perpetual spring” into our lives.
May we yearn to experience the “fragrance.”
May the Wisdom-Guru be with us.
The first video in the Barah Maha video series is Chet. Immerse yourself into the beauty of nature while learning about detachment and connection. Fly into the flowers and trees and surround yourself with the smell and sounds of the earth. Follow the human-bride, the seeker, as she overcomes the separation she feels from IkOankar. She hopes so profoundly for the connection.
Known as the Sixth River of Panjab, Bhai Vir Singh gave style, rhythm, and flow to the modern Panjabi language. His writings, spiritual in nature, stimulate the soul and open our eyes to the Beloved.
In the ninth composition of the “Sabad Hajare Patisahi 10” (popularly Shabad Hazare Patshahi 10) series, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib declares that the One Divine will remain fully capable of destroying and creating.
