Sumone Ji,


Could you help ssk with the translations // nr. 29? Could you post the translations of that particular // online, so all of us can get some knowledge.

(tell me if you are going to, as i was thinking of looking into Giani Narain Singh's Steek in about 2-4 days, but if you already got Dr Jodh Singh's translation..that would be better)

Gurfateh Ji!

Vaar 29

Pauri 13

houmai gurub nivaareeai gurumukh ridhai gureebee aavai

giaan muthee ghatt chaanunaa bhurum agiaan andhaer mittaavai

hoe nisaanaa tehi puvai dhurugehi maan nimaanaa paavai

khusumai soee bhaavudhaa khusumai dhaa jis bhaanaa bhaavai

bhaanaa munnai munneeai apunaa bhaanaa aap munaavai

dhuneeaa vich puraahunaa dhaavaa shadd rehae laa dhaavai

saadhusungath mil hukam kumaavai

Pauri 13 ( Accept the will of the Lord in the holy congregation)

Repudiating pride and ego a gurmukh should be humble. WIth the light of knowledge in his mind he should dispel darkness of ignorance and delusions. He should fall on the feet (of the Lord) in humility because only the humble are hounoured in the court of the Lord. Master also loves that man who loves the will of the master. One who accepts the will of God is accepted by one and all and then the lord himself helps people accept His will. The gurmukh understands that he is a guest in this world; that is why foregoing all claims, he lives without making any claim for himself. Being in the holy congregation, he acts in consonance with the commands of the Lord.

Pauri 14

gur purumaesur eik jaan gurumukh dhoojaa bhaao mittaaeiaa

houmai paal tehaae kai thaal nudhee dhaa neer milaaeiaa

nudhee kinaarai dhuhu vulee eik dhoo paaraavaar n paaeiaa

rukhuhu ful thai ful rukh eik naao ful rukh sudhaaeiaa

shia ruthee eik sujh hai sujhai sujh n hor dhikhaaeiaa

raathee thaarae chumukudhae dhih churreeai kin aakh lukaaeiaa

saadhusungath eik man eik dhiaaeiaa

Pauri 14 ( Only one Lord adored in the holy congregation)

Accepting Guru and God as one, the gurmukh has erased the sence of duality. Knocking down the wall of ego, the gurmukh has united the pond (self) with the river (Brahm). Undoubtedly the river remains contained within its two banks neither one knowing the other. From tree thefruit and from fruit the tree are born and in fact both are one though they have different names. The sun is one in all the six seasons; knowing this, one does not think of different suns. At night the stars twinkle but with the break of day under whose command they hide themselves? (they automatically go and likewise with light of knowledge the darkness of ignorance is dispelled of its own). In the holy congregation, the gurmukhs adore the Lord with single minded devotion.

    • Personally I'm not remotely surprised. Let's put things in a wider geo-political perspective. These are my opinions btw, I don't expect people to share them, and as writing them are uncomfortable, I imagine reading them will also be for many. Whatever your feelings about it, the reality is that right now, India (politically and economically) is doing big things that challenge the global, white supremacist dominance (read eurocentrism) that's been dictating things for centuries to all nonwhite people's (and others) detriment.  The indian speeches castigating the hegemony and warmongering by mainly western europeans and americans resonate with many people globally including Africa and some parts of latin America. I've heard this multiple times over the last year from varying sources. So for the first time in centuries, the people who've held a hegemonic stranglehold on global politics and economy and even culture are on a back foot.  Indians are (understandably in context) being seen as heroes for helping finally confront and face this reality and not succumbing to western threats and manipulations. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and india took it.       Slap bang at a point when this is happening our lot pop up looking as if they want to derail that. And people shouldn't be ignorant of the perception of certain apnay being chaaplooses to goray, which shouldn't be surprising given the unquestioning military support for the white colonial agenda certain apnay gave in recent history.  I've always said that white supremacism/hegemony is something that we have to face up to and confront, regardless of any contentions with delhi.  If timing and tactics are anything to consider, I would have thought letting india get on with challenging western european hegemony and the undeniable growth of neo-nazism in the west would've been in our interests right now, especially as we aren't capable of dealing with it on our own, and with many of our lot having a historical proclivity to subordinate themselves to this for personal gain in any case.  So I'm not remotely shocked a lot of hate is coming our way.    It's like supporting certain people during the 'Indian mutiny' which did us no favours and just led to the plunder of Panjab and after a hundred years of slavery, use and abuse being left to face mass murder and rape and losses of large swathes of land whilst certain people scuttled off into the sunset. 
    • If a time is coming it could be much worse than another war (in which being prepared will be pointless).
