ਅਲਹ ਅਗਮ ਖੁਦਾਈ ਬੰਦੇ ॥ alah agam khudāī bande. O servant of Khuda, the unreachable Allah --- This is a continuation of the Persian Voice of the Guru's featuring the Sikh Research Institutes Researcher Asha Marie Kaur. In this transcreation, the original Gurmukhi is followed by an English transcription to guide the Sabad’s (Divine Word) pronunciation in its original form. The Persian recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib, and standard Persian often have different pronunciations of words with the same meaning. The Perso-Arabic transcription is written with spellings that allow a modern-day Persian reader to understand the text. This Sabad brings to the mind a call for humility, grounding, and reframing. We must stop at this moment and bring ourselves down to a level where we can self-reflect and reframe our headspace. Opening ourselves up and attuning to the hak hukam will give us the chance to let the shackles of human society go and feel truly free and seen. Sabad Recitation: Parminder Kaur Chanana
