Mat vich ratan jawahar manik je ik Gur ki Sikh suni

Recommended Posts

What do you understand by the pangti above? 

I thought I understood it. However despite having recited it for a number of years, I realised it has a much deeper meaning. 

The words ratan jawahar manik actually mean veraag, gyan and naam which come into the budhi when we listen to the bachan of the True Guru.

Pretty much what you said.

After reading Fairdkot Teeka of course. :grin

ਹੇ ਸਿਧੋ (ਜੇ) ਜਬ (ਗੁਰ ਕੀ) ਗੁਰੂਓਂ ਕੀ (ਇਕ) ਏਕਤਾ ਕੀ ਸਿਖ੍ਯਾ ਸੁਣੀਤੀ ਹੈ ਭਾਵ ਜਬ ਗੁਰੋਂ ਸੇ ਏਕ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਕਾ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਸੁਨੀਏ ਤਬ ਅਪਨੀ (ਮਤਿ) ਬੁਧੀ ਮੈ ਹੀ ਰਤਨ (ਜਵਾਹਰ) (ਮਾਣਿਕ) ਮਿਲ ਜਾਤੇ ਹੈਂ॥ ਰਤਨ ਨਾਮ ਵੈਰਾਗ ਦਾ ਹੈ ਔਰ ਜਵਾਹਰ ਕਹੀਏ ਪਰਮੇਸ੍ਵਰ ਕਾ ਸਾਖਯਾਤ ਹੋਣਾ (ਮਾਣਿਕ) ਜੋ ਮਨਨ ਕਰਨਾ ਹੈ ਭਾਵ ਸ੍ਰਵਨ ਮਨਨ ਨਿਦਿਧ੍ਯਾਸਨ ਆਦੀ ਸਭ ਗੁਣ ਬੁਧੀ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਹੀ ਮਿਲ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਹੈਂ॥

I read a sakhi from janam sakhi bhai bala which was about a thief. His mum told him to cover his ears whenever he passed a dharamsala. 

He did this until one day he was pricked ny a thorn and he heard the words that devte dont blink.

After that he got arrested and the police made a nakli durga maa to appear to him in order to get a confession from him as he denied all charges of theft. 

He looked and saw she never blinked. That one sikhiya of the Guru saved him. I always thought this pangti was connected to that sakhi so I understood it differently. I must have read this pangti there.

    • YES! valid points. Life is a thing which can pull people into good / bad stuff. Religion, friends, fam and society can be factors. I too went down a "Make a quick buck" routine a few years back as I considered myself in a "Hard" life. Of course no one was hurt, injured or robbed in the process.
    • Iv listened to it before  I think it's real     he starts reciting the Quran as well 
    • @mods I'm not sure if this violates the forum rules. Please feel free to remove/alter if required. This is not a promotional post and I'm not affiliated with stack exchange. I've just submitted a proposal to them. Satsriakal people! I've created a proposal at stack exchange( the largest question/answer website on the web, similar to quora) to start a sub site devoted to Sikhism where people can post questions and receive answers from others. I request everyone to please follow the site to keep it active so that it can be pushed to the next stage(beta)and isn't deleted.
      Please click "follow" at the below link: https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122932/sikhism Once the number of followers meet the minimum criteria, there will be a sub section on stack exchange devoted only to Sikhism, which I think will be a great thing. Let's give our best to make this proposal count. Since this is a new proposal, it also lacks sample questions. Please feel free to upvote the existing questions or add new ones related to Sikhism.
    • shes from a different community n anotha part of town. abt 15 yrs younger than the female elder as well. so y wud she be keepin their company? seems like she was either abandoned by her own for wateva reason n lost her way. maybe livin rough n desperate before bein targeted. or she knew the place well as a worker or regular customer n wanted a piece of the prize from wat wudve seemed a simple 'transaction'?
    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
