Listen to a Version of this Shabad by Nirinjan Kaur
Blessing of Bibi Bhani
‘Poota Mata Kee Aasees’ is prayer that a mother makes to her child to develop his or her highest potential as a spiritual being. This mantra may provide a high vibration of protection everywhere the child goes. The lines in the prayer are by Bibi Bhani, the mother of Guru Arjan Dev. Guru Arjan Dev was the son of Guru Ram Das, and his mother spoke this beautiful blessing to him one day before he was Guru, to keep him safe on a journey.
