The Sikh National Anthem

 

DEH SHIVA BAR MOHE IHA
Grant me this boon, 0, God, from thy greatness
SHUBH KARMAN TEY KABHU NA TAROON
May I never refrain from righteous acts,
NA DAROO AR SIYOO JAB JAH LAROO
May I fight without fear all foes in life's battle,
NISCHAI KAR APNE JEET KAROO
With confident courage claiming the victory'
AR SIKH HAO APNE HE MUN KO
May Thy glory be gained in my mind,
EH LALACH HAU GUN TAU UCHROO
And my highest ambition be singing thy praises
JAB AAV KI AUDH NIDHAAN BANAY
When this mortal reaches its limits,
AUT HE RAN ME TAB JOOJH MAROO
May I die fighting with limitless courage'


- GURU GOBIND SINGH

Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism was born in 1469. Sikhism is the way of life chalked out by him for us to live the span of life granted to us by the Creator. He did not only lay down the postulates, but took ten generation to teach us in practice how to live it (Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh Ji).

Guru Nanak Devji was born with the most difficult mission which he achieved without any trouble. He was born during the times when India was going through the most confused and painful era. On one hand people were suffering due to extreme corruption of religious pandits whilst on the other hand the Moghul invaders were creating hell through blood shed.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji tackled the whole situation by using only one weapon, that weapon was Humility. Humility is the essence of all virtues, said Guru Nanak.

Guru Nanak Dev


He used Gurbani and music to convey his truthful message of Universal Brotherhood stating "We are all the children of One God, it is only our actions which makes us good or bad, not caste, colour or creed.

If we l
ook at music closely then we can see how universal it is. No matter what language, what religion, what country or which people, same seven notes are used to make Tunes, Raaga etc and it is method of 'Gurbani through Kirtan' that Guru Nanak Devji used to change attitudes of evil people such as Sajjan Thug and Kauda Raksash.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji travelled to many places in and outside India liberating people from false beliefs and evil practices.
T hrough Kirtan what we have to decide in our own minds is that, do we listen to Gurbani Kirtan merely for musical pleasure or do we use music to understand Gurbani and practice this in our daily lives.
