SLOK MEHLA PANJVAA-N

Slok: type of poetry, Composed by by the 5th Guru.

This is the last shabad in Guru Granth Saheb. In this shabad Guru Arjan Dev ji thanks God, in a very humble way, for His blessings that enabled him to complete the great task of compiling the Granth Sahib.

Waheguruji, I did not recognize the extent of Your blessings, You considered me deserving (of Your blessings to complete this great task of compiling this Granth)

tera: Yours, keeta: doing, implies blessing me, jaato: recognize, realize, maeno: to me, jog: deserving, keeto-ee: considered

NANAK NAAM MILAE TAA-N JEEVAA-N TAN MAN THEEVAE HAR-EAA

Nanak says, when I receive Your Divine Name (from the true Guru), I become spiritually alive, my mind and body blossom (with the bliss of Your Name)

Jeevaa-n: live, implies spiritually alive, tan: body, man: mind, theevae: becomes, hare-aa: green, implies thrives, like a dry plant becomes green when given water.

 

Note: According to the current Rehat Maryaada published by SGPC, the Rehras Saheb path ends here. Some people recite a few more shabads after this which is ok but not according to Rehat Maryaada.

This is a good opportunity to memorize Gurbani, one Pauri at a time. You can concentrate better and enjoy more if you recite bani without looking at the gutka.

 DID YOU KNOW Minimize

ONE SPIRIT, DIFFERENT BODIES

After Guru Nanak Dev ji, none of the Gurus used their names in their writings. They always used the name "Nanak" as if everything was written by Guru Nanak Dev ji. This reinforces our belief that all our Gurus had the same spirit in different bodies. The eternal source of spiritual knowledge that was within Guru Nanak Dev ji was passed on to each Guru and they uttered Gurbani that originated from the same source.)
