O Siblings | Persian Voice

ਤਿਲੰਗ ਬਾਣੀ ਭਗਤਾ ਕੀ ਕਬੀਰ ਜੀ tilaṅg bāṇī bhagtā kī kabīr jī Tilang, utterance of the Bhagats, Kabir Ji: --- 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. Bhagat Kabir brings to mind a paradigm where there is no distinction between Creator and creation. Instead, the Creator lies within each of us; we will all one day perish or decompose, but the sheer existence of IkOankar is Eternal. As a result, we can find Eternal connections to the Divine within our own hearts and minds. We shall unfold the vastness to reflect the boundless qualities of the Creator.

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 portrays the relationship between the Creator and creation. It then slowly cultivates the relationship between the humble devotee and the Divine. Bhagat Namdev highlights the role of the Creator. Being committed to the Divine is not an easy task; it is arduous, but not for someone that lives in alignment with IkOankar (1-Ness). Someone who does would frame such labor as beautiful and feel the unwavering greatness in Nam.

O Servant of the Unattainable: Asha Marie Kaur – The Sikh Cast | SikhRI

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.

Reflect on the Knower: Asha Marie Kaur – The Sikh Cast | SikhRI

This is a continuation of the Persian Voice of the Guru's featuring the Sikh Research Institute's Researcher, Asha Marie Kaur. In this transcreation, the original Gurmukhi is followed by an English transcription to guide the Sabad’s pronunciation (Divine Word) 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 highlights the journey of becoming vast like IkOankar (1-Ness). We seek solace in becoming like IkOankar, and in doing so, we receive the assistance we yearn for. When we hold onto things that we believe to be “ours,” we take ourselves into an ecocentric place; we become entangled.
