Guru Ramdas Sahib in Rag Devgandhari | Guru Granth Sahib 527 | Artist: Bhai Avtar Singh

Sabad Recitation


In which lane can I find my Beautiful?
O! All-Pervasive’s Truth-Exemplar,
articulate the Way, and I shall follow.1. Reflect.

Heart found the Beloved’s words sweet,
and the walk began to feel great.
Even if hunch-backed or short is liked by the Ruler,
in humility, now the beautiful meets the All-Pervasive. 1.

There is One Beloved. The rest are all Beloved’s friends;
Great is the one liked by the Beloved.
What can humble helpless Nanak do?
The one whom the All-Pervasive likes walks on the path. 2.2.
    Guru Ramdas Sahib in Rag Dev-Gandhari  | Guru Granth Sahib 527
ਮੇਰੋ ਸੁੰਦਰੁ ਕਹਹੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਕਿਤੁ ਗਲੀ ॥
ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਸੰਤ ਬਤਾਵਹੁ ਮਾਰਗੁ ਹਮ ਪੀਛੈ ਲਾਗਿ ਚਲੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

ਪ੍ਰਿਅ ਕੇ ਬਚਨ ਸੁਖਾਨੇ ਹੀਅਰੈ ਇਹ ਚਾਲ ਬਨੀ ਹੈ ਭਲੀ ॥
ਲਟੁਰੀ ਮਧੁਰੀ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਭਾਈ ਓਹ ਸੁੰਦਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਢੁਲਿ ਮਿਲੀ ॥੧॥

ਏਕੋ ਪ੍ਰਿਉ ਸਖੀਆ ਸਭ ਪ੍ਰਿਅ ਕੀ ਜੋ ਭਾਵੈ ਪਿਰ ਸਾ ਭਲੀ ॥
ਨਾਨਕੁ ਗਰੀਬੁ ਕਿਆ ਕਰੈ ਬਿਚਾਰਾ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਤੁ ਰਾਹਿ ਚਲੀ ॥੨॥੨॥

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.
