In the enchanting melody of Dhanasari, a rag that exudes happiness, Guru Nanak Sahib crafts a Sabad, resonating with profound devotion.

In the enchanting melody of Dhanasari, a rag that exudes happiness, Guru Nanak Sahib crafts a Sabad, resonating with profound devotion. The musical tradition of Dhanasari, rooted in northern India, provides a harmonious canvas for Guru Nanak Sahib’s reflections.

The Sabad opens with an intimate tremor within, a yearning for someone to call upon. The call to serve the Remover of sufferings reverberates in this vulnerability, underscoring the concept of an eternal giver. The subsequent appeal to the daily service of the Sovereign, the liberator, resonates as a transformative and perpetual call.

Proclaiming the omnipresence of the Eternal One, the Sabad accentuates that those who catch the Divine gaze are genuinely served. The plea to the Beloved articulates a profound yearning, desiring the privilege of dwelling in the Divine Nam. The commitment to serve the Sovereign exclusively, without seeking from any other, echoes as a steadfast pledge of unwavering devotion, offering every moment and every bit to the Divine.
