Aad Guray Nameh meaning?

Recommended Posts

What does it mean?

Aad Guray Nameh
Jugaad Guray Nameh
Sat Guray Nameh
Siri Guru Dayvay Nameh

Couldn't find any detailed article or video about it.

Aad is the past? And Nameh means Namashkar? Salute?  And Guray is referring to God?  

Then Jugaad means all the yugs? Sat the truth.

There's many meanings to this. One which I find incredibly beautiful (from the point of view of Guru Arjan Dev Ji) is

Aad guray nameh - I bow down to the 1st Guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Jugaad guray nameh - I bow down to the 2nd Guru Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji

Sat guray nameh - I bow down to my Satguru Sri Guru Ram Das Ji

Sri gur dayvay nameh - I bow down to their (my satguru's) Guru Sri Guru Amar Das Ji

In this way Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji pays their respect to the 4 Guru Sahibs before them and seeks blessing to begin path of Sukhmani Sahib. This is an implied arth based on the perspective of 5th Guru. A more literal arth could be:

Aad guray nameh - I pay respect to guru who has been guru since the start of time (aad meaning start)

Jugaad guray nameh - I pay respect to guru who was present at the start of the jugs when creation began. Jugaad sach

Sat guray nameh - I pay respect to the true guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji 

Sri gur dayvay nameh - I pay respect to the guru who is true now and will always be the true guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Thanks 🙏     Even when you say it or read it you know it has so much depth    The first meaning really is beautiful.

Aad Guray, is Waheguru Akal Purukh Himself, the first Guru (Source of Light)since the very begining.

Jugad Guray, is again Waheguru, the changeless Guru throughout all the yugas

Sat Guray, is the True Shabad Guru 

Sree Guray Dayvay, is again the eternal Guru, Waheguru Akal Purukh  Himself, forever.

To this very Guru, I bow again and again.
