Alahania, a sorrowful Punjabi folk song, emphasizes the belief in IkOankar, the all-powerful force behind existence.


It reflects on the transient nature of life, where attachment to worldly things leads to suffering and perpetuates the cycle of birth and death. However, those who meditate on IkOankar's divine essence and follow the teachings of wisdom find liberation. They embrace death as a natural part of existence and remain immersed in IkOankar's presence, radiating love and joy.
