  • ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ I have come to listen and read the Teachings.

    I have come to listen and read the Teachings.
    Forgetting Nam1, engaging in other greeds, human life wasted. Reflect.

    O! My unaware mind! Understand,
    become aware of the indescribable narrative told by Truth-Exemplars.

    Earn profit: Remember All-Pervasive in the heart,
    free yourself from coming-going.

    Effort, strength and wisdom are Yours,
    when You bestow, then I utter Nam.

    Nanak: Devotees are engaged in devotion,
    and they are liked by the Divine. 2. 

    1. Divine Identification.

    ਸਾਰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥

    ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥
    ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

    ਸਮਝੁ ਅਚੇਤ ਚੇਤਿ ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਕਥੀ ਸੰਤਨ ਅਕਥ ਕਹਾਣੀ ॥
    ਲਾਭੁ ਲੈਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਰਿਦੈ ਅਰਾਧਹੁ ਛੁਟਕੈ ਆਵਣ ਜਾਣੀ ॥੧॥

    ਉਦਮੁ ਸਕਤਿ ਸਿਆਣਪ ਤੁਮ੍ਹਰੀ ਦੇਹਿ ਤ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਖਾਣੀ ॥
    ਸੇਈ ਭਗਤ ਭਗਤਿ ਸੇ ਲਾਗੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਣੀ ॥੨॥੫੬॥੭੯॥

     


    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.


  • ਵਿਸਰਿਆ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇ ਭੁਇ ਭਾਰੁ ਥੀਏ ॥ Those who forget Nam become a burden on the earth

    Those who love from the heart are genuine.
    Those who think one notion, but vocalize another are unripe.  1.

    Those drenched with Love remain colored with Khuda’s1 vision.
    Those who forget Nam2 become a burden on the earth.  1. Reflect 

    Those whom You attach to Your hem are the dervishes3 at Your door.
    Their birth-mothers are blessed. Their advent is congratulatory.  2. 

    O! Caretaker, You are limitless, fathomless and endless.
    I kiss the feet of those who have realized the Eternal.  3. 

    O! Khuda, I seek Your sanctuary. Your nature is to free.
    Grant Sheikh Farid the gift of Your devotion.  4. 

     

    1. Islamic word for God, derived from Iranian terms for Lord, Ruler and Master.
    2. Divine Identification
    3. Dervish is a Persian word for the one who is hanging outside the door.

    ਆਸਾ ਸੇਖ ਫਰੀਦ ਜੀਉ ਕੀ ਬਾਣੀ
    ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥

    ਦਿਲਹੁ ਮੁਹਬਤਿ ਜਿੰਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਸੇਈ ਸਚਿਆ ॥
    ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਮਨਿ ਹੋਰੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਹੋਰੁ ਸਿ ਕਾਂਢੇ ਕਚਿਆ ॥੧॥

    ਰਤੇ ਇਸਕ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਰੰਗਿ ਦੀਦਾਰ ਕੇ ॥
    ਵਿਸਰਿਆ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇ ਭੁਇ ਭਾਰੁ ਥੀਏ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

    ਆਪਿ ਲੀਏ ਲੜਿ ਲਾਇ ਦਰਿ ਦਰਵੇਸ ਸੇ ॥
    ਤਿਨ ਧੰਨੁ ਜਣੇਦੀ ਮਾਉ ਆਏ ਸਫਲੁ ਸੇ ॥੨॥

    ਪਰਵਦਗਾਰ ਅਪਾਰ ਅਗਮ ਬੇਅੰਤ ਤੂ ॥
    ਜਿਨਾ ਪਛਾਤਾ ਸਚੁ ਚੁੰਮਾ ਪੈਰ ਮੂੰ ॥੩॥

    ਤੇਰੀ ਪਨਹ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਤੂ ਬਖਸੰਦਗੀ ॥
    ਸੇਖ ਫਰੀਦੈ ਖੈਰੁ ਦੀਜੈ ਬੰਦਗੀ ॥੪॥੧॥
