Could someone help me interpret this Shabd

Postby Jpure » Tue Oct 17, 2017 3:19 pm

Hi Everyone, and thank you in advance for checking my post.

I have recently been given a shabd and need help interpreting the meaning.

Could you please help me interpret the following:

The lord is with me
The messenger of death does not approach me
God holds me close in his embrace, and protects me
True are the teachings of the true the perfect guru has done it perfectly
He has beaten and driven off my enemies, and given me, his slave, the sublime understanding of the neutral mind
God has blessed all places with prosperity
I have returned again safe and sound
Nanak has entered Gods sanctuary
It has eradicated all disease

In Punjabi

Sorath mehalaa 5
Naal naraaein maerai
Jamadhooth n aavai naerai
Kanth laae prabh raakhai
Sathigur kee Sach saakhai
Gur poorai pooree keethee
Dhusaman maar viddaarae sagalae Dhaas ko sumath dheethee rahaao
Prabh sagalae thhaan vasaaeae
Sukh saandh fir aaeae
Naanak prabh saranaaeae
Jin sagalae rog mittaaeae

Please help, your comments are appreciated.

Thank you kindly.

I will do my best at my level of understanding.
Naal narayan mere: The Lord is always with me means that God is always around us. God is in Nirgun form, formless form, and also formed form as individuals, animals, etc. God lives within us in "Nij Ghar", and when we do a lot of simran and by God's blessings, we become one with God there.
Jamdhoot Na aave nere: The messenger of Death does not approach me. When we die,t he jamdhoots come to take us so we can settle our accounts from this lifetime. But when we become jeevan mukht/liberated in this lifetime this does not happen as our accounts are settled.
Kanth Laye Prabh Rakhe: God holds me close to His embrace and protects me: God protects those who become one with God and live under His will
Satgur ke sach sakhe: True are the teachings of the Guru: straightforward.
Gur Pooray Poore Kete: The Perfect Guru Has done it perfectly
Dushman Mar Vidare Sagle Das Ko sumat dete: He has beaten and driven off my enemies and given me, His slave, the sublime understanding of the neutral mind. Enemies in this case means the 5: lust, anger, greed, attachment, pride. These are enemies within our own mind. When we do simran, we learn how to bring these under control, to stop our thoughts and meet God.
Prabh Sagle Thaan Vasai God has blessed all places with prosperity
Sukh Saandh Fir Ae: I have returned again safe and sound: We live in shaant (peaceful) avastha when we are one with God. We live in Anand.
Nanak Prabh Sarnaee: Nanak has entered God's sanctuary.
Jin Sagle Rog Mitae: It has eradicated all disease. Whoever is jeevan mukht, they are fulfilled with all the good qualities: humility, truth, contentment, bliss, etc. and they live without diseases.

Hope that helps to interpret it a little bit more. Ultimately you need to find the message that God is telling you as well- like how this fits into your life, what question you asked in Ardas, etc.
