Guru Arjan Sahib in Rag Dhanasari | Guru Granth Sahib 681 | Artist: Akal Academy Baru Sahib

Sabad Recitation


This Sabad invites the listener into a space of joy and spiritual contemplation, where the heart's humbleness becomes the key to unlocking the treasures of divine remembrance and protection.

Body, mind, and bosom cooled by remembering, remembering, my Owner Divine.
My being’s beauty, color, comfort, wealth, and caste is the Transcendent. 1.  

Tongue intoxicated with Charmer-Divine’s nectar,
Colored in Love-Color of my Charmer-Divine,
the Lotus-Feet¹ becomes the abundant treasure. Reflect. 

To whom I belong, protected me; perfect is the Divine’s way.
Nanak: Comfort-Giver united me, All-Pervasive protected the honor.  2. 

  1. Humility

Guru Arjan Sahib in Rag Dhanasari  |  Guru Granth Sahib 681

ਧਨਾਸਰੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥

ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਅਪਨਾ ਸੀਤਲ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਛਾਤੀ ॥
ਰੂਪ ਰੰਗ ਸੂਖ ਧਨੁ ਜੀਅ ਕਾ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਮੋਰੈ ਜਾਤੀ ॥੧॥

ਰਸਨਾ ਰਾਮ ਰਸਾਇਨਿ ਮਾਤੀ ॥
ਰੰਗ ਰੰਗੀ ਰਾਮ ਅਪਨੇ ਕੈ ਚਰਨ ਕਮਲ ਨਿਧਿ ਥਾਤੀ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਸਾ ਤਿਨ ਹੀ ਰਖਿ ਲੀਆ ਪੂਰਨ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਭਾਤੀ ॥
ਮੇਲਿ ਲੀਓ ਆਪੇ ਸੁਖਦਾਤੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਖੀ ਪਾਤੀ ॥੨॥੧੨॥੪੩॥
