Sabad is Infinite; we are finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this transcreation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad the same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
Sabad is Infinite; we are very finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow, as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this transcreation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad the same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute as used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
The Persian language occupies a strange place in Sikhi. Sikhs are universally aware that Persian has a place in our history yet simultaneously unaware of its magnitude. It is fascinating how one repeatedly hears the same common knowledge as if the bit were rehearsed:
Vahiguru created everything, and Vahiguru is all around us. Thank you all for joining us throughout this glowing journey we’ve all had with one another. It has been a pleasure sharing the sakhis of Guru Nanak Sahib. In this final podcast, we will get to hear a sakhi centering around Guru ji’s important decision: who will be the next Guru? Guru ji has taught us all so many life lessons; a special one is being discussed in this final episode: the need for us to live enriched, full lives while here in this world. We must work our hardest to make this world the best it can be, not only for ourselves but also for those who come next.
The sakhi of how Guru Angad Sahib and Guru ji met is momentous. Their paths crossed at the perfect time. Guru Angad Sahib was Bhai Lehna ji at that time. Guru ji’s wisdom was something that Bhai Lehna ji was absolutely missing in his life. He was unaware of the power of Vahiguru. Guru ji wisdom and understanding broadened Bhai Lehna ji. This beautiful sakhi truly captures how wise Guru ji was, so wise that Bhai Lehna ji felt that he needed to reshape his life to live by the wisdom of Guru ji. Listen along to hear the meeting of Bhai Lehna ji with Guru ji.
Do you know about Bhumi? The rich landlord from Dhaka, India? Well, if you don’t know of him, hit the play button. This is a sakhi you’re not going to want to miss. There’s a reason why Bhumi was so rich. Guru ji learned why and he demanded that Bhumi make good on the pain that he had caused. But rather than going the traditional route, Guru ji requested that Bhumi follow through with four promises. Guru ji wanted Bhumi to learn his lesson and be true to his word and follow the right path. Promises are never meant to be broken. They have significance in relationships, communication, and respect. Find out if Bhumi kept his promises. Listen to learn more about Bhumi’s path from crime to compassion.
The next sakhi takes us to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Around the year 1525, Guru ji and Bhai Mardana arrived in Mecca. Guru ji’s interaction with the qazi (a Muslim scholar) was very shaky at first because the qazi thought Guru ji was disrespectful.
