Listen as we explore the Sabad (Shabad) of Guru Arjan Sahib in Rag (raag) Asa from the Guru Granth Sahib, the sacred scripture of the Sikhs. Sabad is the bond between the Guru and the Sikh. Read the translation done by Harinder Singh and Inni Kaur.

This composition by Guru Arjan Sahib is in Rag Asa, a musical mode used to evoke a mood of hope, expectation, inspiration, and courage.

The reflection: Sabad, the divine narrative, connects one with the IkOankar, the One, the Divine, graced, one experiences Nam, Identification with IkOankar. The divine narrative that the Guru shares is the bond between the Guru and the Sikh. The way to divine realization, the experience is revealed in Sabad.
