Today’s Hukam, Darbar Sahib, Amritsar

Fifth Sovereign, Rag Suhi, Ang. 737, Hukam, Darbar Sahib

Blessed the bride who recognizes her Beloved. Obeys Hukam; renounces ego. Immersed in Beloved, exults bliss.1. Listen girl-friend, signs for Beloved’s union. Surrender consciousness, body; renounce people’s honor .1. Reflect

One girl-friend counsels another girl-friend, do only what pleases Beloved. That bride then rests cradled.2.

Ego steeped, Mansion unobtainable. Then regrets, when night passes. Unfortunate self-centered, suffer pain.3.

I would request, if I thought (Beloved) afar. Beloved indestructible, permeating universally. Being Nanak, see’s Presence and sings.4.

Sun shining
Zephyr silent
I listen….
Sabad soaks
Day begins…

Listen, my beautiful friends to what Guru says:

“Blessed is the one who understands, who recognizes, who sees, who experiences that her True Self, her True identity is Ik Oankar (Oneness)."
That the tiny light within her; is part of the One Eternal Light.
That she is just a drop of that Endless Ocean.
Her true purpose is to merge into that Endless Ocean.
Accept Hukam.
Eradicate ego.
The veil of separation will be lifted.
Soaked in True Love, enjoy forever the highest pleasures, the highest delights, and the never-ending bliss.
Marks of those who walk this path?
They surrender their mind and body to One Eternal Consciousness.
They care not what the world says about them.
They pay no attention to the voices that stand against their faith, their belief, and their Love. Reflect! (I so needed to hear this.)
The one who follows Guru merges into that Endless Ocean.
The one who is still under the influence of ego cannot understand that she is just a drop in the ocean.

When the Call of Death comes, she regrets and cries out: Why didn’t I follow the Teachings? Why didn’t I meditate? Why didn’t I love? I thought You were far away? She forgot that the One Eternal pervades through all.

Says Nanak, I see my Beloved ever-present in all places at all times and I sing Your praises.”

My Ardas: May Your Fragrance embrace me.
