Episode 5: Being True, Inside and Out | Getting to Know Guru Nanak Sahib

By
No items found.

Our next podcast takes place in Tulamba, focusing on a man named Sajjan and an inn he ran for travelers to stay overnight. Over time, Sajjan began engaging in a very unhealthy habit, which negatively affected travelers. He was stealing personal items from the rooms where the travelers were staying. What started as a means of keeping things left behind when the travelers left quickly turned into him going right into their rooms and stealing it while staying at the inn. Guru ji and Bhai Mardana decided to stay at Sajjan’s inn while traveling through Tulamba. Sajjan was thrilled, mostly because he had this sense that Guru ji was wealthy. His goal was to rob Guru ji. Listen to find out what happened next.

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 بدر در پیشِ رخت شرمنده است بلکه خورشیدِ جهان هم بنده است چشمِ ما هرگز بغیر از حق ندید ای خوشا چشمی که حق بیننده است ما نمی لافیم از زهد و ریا گر گنه گاریم حق بخشنده است دیگری را از کجا آریم ما شور در عالم یکی افگنده است حرفِ غیر از حق نیاید هیچ گاه بر لبِ‌ گویا که حق بخشنده است English Translation Before Your face, the full moon is embarrassed. Rather, the sun of the universe too is a slave. Our eyes witness nothing but the Truth-Divine. Oh, fortunate is the eye that beholds the Divine. Neither do we flaunt piety nor do we indulge in hypocrisy. If we are sinners, the Divine is the forgiver. From where would we bring another? The world reverberates with echoes of Oneness. Nothing is ever uttered except Truth-Divine. By the lips of Goya, as the Divine is the forgiver.
