ਗੁਰ ਅਪੁਨੇ ਊਪਰਿ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਈਐ ॥ I surrender to my own Guru

I surrender to my own Guru,
I sing for eight pahars1 the praise,
of the All-Pervasive, the All-Pervasive.  1.

I remember my own Divine Owner,
the Knower of all hearts. 1.  Reflect.

As love develops for the Lotus-Feet,
conduct becomes eternal,
complete and immaculate.  2.

By Truth-Exemplar’s Grace,
the One comes to reside in the mind,
the evil of many life-times leaves .  3.

O! Compassionate Divine,
bestow Grace on the meek.
Nanak asks for Truth-Exemplar’s dust-blessing.  4.

  1. 1.   Unit of time equaling 3 hours. 8 pahars make 24 hours.

Guru Ramdas Sahib in Rag Jaitsari  | Guru Granth Sahib 740

 

ਸੂਹੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥
ਗੁਰ ਅਪੁਨੇ ਊਪਰਿ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਈਐ ॥
ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਸੁ ਗਾਈਐ ॥੧॥

ਸਿਮਰਉ ਸੋ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਅਪਨਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ ॥
ਸਗਲ ਘਟਾ ਕਾ ਅੰਤਰਜਾਮੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

ਚਰਣ ਕਮਲ ਸਿਉ ਲਾਗੀ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ॥
ਸਾਚੀ ਪੂਰਨ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਰੀਤਿ ॥੨॥

ਸੰਤ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਵਸੈ ਮਨ ਮਾਹੀ ॥
ਜਨਮ ਜਨਮ ਕੇ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਜਾਹੀ ॥੩॥

ਕਰਿ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਦੀਨ ਦਇਆਲਾ ॥
ਨਾਨਕੁ ਮਾਗੈ ਸੰਤ ਰਵਾਲਾ ॥੪॥੧੭॥੨੩॥

 


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 trans-creation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute as used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
