Sabad Hajare

Sabad Hajare

Sabad Hajare is a collection of ten sabads (popularly shabads). A sabad is a word-sound song in musical mode or style filled with infinite wisdom. Hajare is from the Arabic hijr, which means separation. Hazare seems popular likely due to incorrectly wrongfully attributing it to reciting them one thousand times to fulfill a wish. Shabad Hazare phrase is popularly referred to as a collection of sabads from the Guru Granth Sahib as well. Patisahi (popularly patshahi) 10 is the tenth sovereign and refers to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib. So, Sabad Hajare Patisahi 10 to us means the yearning of the Tenth Sovereign for the union with the 1. The Tenth Sovereign is already in union with the 1; this is how the Wisdom-Guru guides us by identifying with us the separated ones. It is the same when the Wisdom-Guru identifies with us mortals in the Guru Granth Sahib, so even in utter darkness, the light of hope shows us the way. How to end our separation, as Sikhs and as the Panth? Recite them one time or thousand times! Feel the hazur’s hazuri, the Presence’s presence in the powerful accents of pangs and longing.
