The Sabad expresses a heartfelt plea to the Eternal Guru, evoking a longing for refuge in the sanctuary of divine grace. It portrays a deep sense of surrender and acknowledgment of the futility of seeking solace elsewhere.

O! Eternal-Guru, I have come to Your sanctuary
to receive the comfort and glory of All-Pervasive Nam
and to remove my anxieties.  1. Reflect.

Cannot think of another abode; defeated, I fall at Your door.
Ignore the record, liberate without the record, free me the virtue-less.  1.

Ever Forgiver, Ever-Compassionate, Supporter of all,
Votary Nanak follows Truth-Exemplar; save me this time.  2.
     Guru Arjan Sahib in Rag Todi | Guru Granth Sahib 713

About Sabad of the Week

We are finite; our understanding is finite. Our understanding was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this trans-creation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
