Gurbaani

Gurbaani

Listening to the shabads of Gurbani is a sublime experience. Being a non panjabi , it is difficult for me to understand most of the it till someone explains it to me. One of the reasons to like this book is that it is a compilation of the hymns written by the saints from all the religions of India. I can sit at any religious gathering and enjoy(except the Jagrans where they sing songs loudly based on the tunes of hindi film songs )

Like other scriptures Gurubani also says that that God is one and Omnipresent.
Every living thing is a part of God.

Agam Agochar Alakh Apara….
Jal thal mahiyal bharpur lina..
Ghat Ghat jyoti tumhari.

The Aarti “Om Jai Jagdish hare..is very similar to Gurbaani.
“Tum ho ek agochar….”

That day I got a cassette(Mann Jeetai Jagjit) of Gurbani ,most of the words are in hindi.
It is sung by our very own Jugjit Singh. It is a treat to the ears.

A small typo in last line. *Jugjit Singh* sud be Jagjit Singh :)

Hey "Jugjit" or "Jagjit" , it's ok. All are proper noun so no marks would be deducted :-)

By the way I am a teacher and I teach 'J for Jug' in school.
