About this Practice

If you want to change your relationships, drop the pain, empower them with clarity, sensitivity and authenticity, do this practice 11 times once a day for 11 days. Of course you can do it each day for as long as you feel necessary or as long as you are enthralled with the beauty and space it creates.

These verses create sound as mantras written in the form of letters between Guru Arjan, the fifth Guru, and Guru Ram Das, his father, the fourth Guru. There was perfect longing, love, and fulfillment in the sentiments, feelings, projection and elevation of these letters. Repeating this Shabad Guru takes you out of the normal internal chatter and emotional games of the mind we usually live with. It purifies, aligns and strengthens the heart and soul.

 

English Translation of these Verses

Guru Arjan Dev JiSiri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Panna 96

My mind longs for a sight of my Guru.
It cries out like the thirsty chatrik bird waiting for the rain.
But the rain does not come.
Peace does not come without the sight of my beloved Guru.
I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice,
Unto the sight of my Beloved Guru. (1)

Your face is so beautiful, hearing your Word brings me deep peace.
It has been so long since this chatrik has seen any water.
O, my dearest friend, O my beloved Guru.
Blessed is the ground beneath your feet.
I am a sacrifice, I am ever a sacrifice.
Unto my dearest friend and intimate, my beloved Guru. (2)

Every moment I am away from you a Dark Age dawns for me.
When will I see you, O my beloved Master?
I cannot get through the night without the sight of your Court.
Sleep does not come.
I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice
Unto the Court of my True Guru. (3)

I am blessed, for I am with my Saintly Guru.
I have found the Eternal God within my own heart/home.
I will serve you every moment of my life, and never be separate from you again.
I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice unto you.
O my Master, Slave Nanak lives to serve you. (4)
