This Shabad is by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Siree Raag on Pannaa 62

ijau supnY inis BulIAY jb lig indRw hoie ]

jio supanai nis bhuleeai jab lag nidhraa hoe ||

In their dreams at night, people wander around as long as they sleep;

ieau srpin kY vis jIAVw AMqir haumY doie ]

eio sarapan kai vas jeearraa a(n)thar houmai dhoe ||

just so, they are under the power of the snake Maya, as long as their hearts are filled with ego and duality.

gurmiq hoie vIcwrIAY supnw iehu jgu loie ]7]

guramath hoe veechaareeai supanaa eihu jag loe ||7||

Through the Guru's Teachings, they come to understand and see that this world is just a dream. ||7||

Could somebody explain this clearer and further please

In their dreams at night, people wander around as long as they sleep;

people wonder at night while they sleep, about money and what not...

they are under the influence of maya, maya is what matters to them...

because there minds and hearts are filled with there ego...

maya = realm of this worldly life...

Exactly what it says...Through the Guru's teaching, we come to understand that none of this maya really matters...this world is just an illusion or a dream...

im not an expert or anything so I dont know if im right...

Bul Chuck maaf

The use of dream as a similie makes it clear that maya is nothing but an illusion.

When we dream, we appear to be going everywhere.. our mind is being tricked and assumes that we are actually at that place but we in bed all along.

Same applies to the mind.. We think the whole maya is real but its nothing but a shadow which will suddenly dissappear.

Hope i made sense blush.gif

Not sure if that's the correct interpretation of people "wandering".

To wander means to move/roam about

To wonder means to think about things

I remember reading somewhere that when you sleep, your soul actually wanders around ie gets out of the body and moves around. I'm pretty sure the Chinese believe this and recommend covering all reflecting surfaces with a cloth - something to prevent the soul seeing it's reflection or something.

Might be a reference to this.

yeh, kind off...I think what Guruji is trying to say is that Maya (all this wordly stuff...money, suits, job's, car's, big masion's etc...) are just things that we get attached to and once you get into these things they make you lobhit (greedy) and you forget about what really matter's...which is love and passion for Waheguru, the creator, preserver and destroyer of all and everything that reside's in Akal Purkh Waheguru ji's own universe...

maya

Sikh theology explains that everything in this world is an illusion, and that the only true reality is Waheguru (God)
