Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

Hukamnama today is by Guru Teg Bahadar Ji on Ang 631 of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in Sorath Raag.

sorath mehlaa 9 ||
Guru Teg Bahadar Ji Maharaj speaks in Sorath Raag and begins by saying:

man kee man hee maahi rahee ||
man kee All those thoughts, of the mind, all the aspirations, all the hopes man hee maahi rahee just remain within the mind. The being contemplates, he contemplates good and he contemplates bad; he contemplates this, he contemplates that, but all those good thoughts just remain within his mind. All the bad thoughts seem to be carried out because being the beings that we are we seem to jump towards the bad. As Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji says in Raag Gujaree:Changi-aayee aalak karey buree-aayee ho-ay sayr Guru Sahib Ji says that the being is reluctant to do good things but he is quick to do bad things, buree-aayee.

naa har bhajay na tirath sayvay chotee kaal gahee ||1|| rahaa-o ||
naa har bhajay the being contemplated it but never did it. naa har bhajay never meditated upon Waheguru, na tirath sayvay did not practice any selfless service at sacred places. chotee kaal gahee then what happens? chotee from the very top of his head, kaal - death, gahee - grabs hold of him. Guru Sahib Ji says do the good things which you are contemplating, don't stand back because you never know when death will get hold of you. rahaa-o Guru Ji says pause and think about this.

daaraa meet poot rath sampat Dhan pooran sabh mahee ||
Guru Teh Bahadar Ji says simply your daaraa -wife, your spouse, meet - your friends, poot - your children, rath - means literally one of those closed carriages that were there in medieval times in India but we can apply to any carriage, sampat - all of your land, all your properties, dhan - all of your wealth, your monetary wealth; pooran sabh mahee in fact Guru Ji says everything in this whole world, pooran - the entire world. What do you need to know Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib Ji says,

avar sagal mithi-aa ay jaan-o bhajan raam ko sahee ||1||
All of these things, sagal - all of them,mithi-aa ay jaan-o, jaan-o know that these things are mithi-aa false, transitory. mithi-aa literally means something whichh is a myth, something which is transitory, which does not really exist. But Guru Sahib Ji says if there is one thing which is sahee, completely true forever and forever, that is bhajan raam ko, bhajan meditation upon raam. Waheguru is the only thing which can save you, it is the only truth.

firat firat bahutay jug haari-o maanas dayh lahee ||
firat firat wandering bahutay jugmany lifetimes, haari-o - you have lost again and again, for many jug ages, for many eons, finally maanas dayh lahee you have been blessed with this maanas dayh - human body.

naanak kahat milan kee baree-aa simrat kahaa nahee ||2||2|| 
naanak kahat Nanak says milan kee baree-aa this is your baree-aa - opportunity, this is your chance to milan kee be united with Waheguru. And Guru Ji says simrat kahaa nahee why are you not kahaa nahee,meditating - simrat O brother why are you not meditating? You have this beautiful chance. Everything that you are hanging onto Guru Ji says, is all false, transitory. Hold on to the truth. Live in this world but hold onto the truth. Live in the transitory world, live in the world of falsehood but keep the truth within your heart and let it shine and meditate upon Waheguru. Guru Teg Bahadar is trying to wake us up by saying, wake up now is the time. Do not be the person who hangs back, because what happens to that person Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib Ji says na har bhajay the one who does not meditate, na tirath sayvay the one who does not do any sayva - selfless service chotee kaal gahee this is the rahaa-o line; death will catch hold of you. So meditate, why are you not meditating, o brother. That is the message of Guru Teg Bahadar for all of us today.

firat firat bahutay jug haari-o maanas dayh lahee ||
naanak kahat milan kee baree-aa simrat kahaa nahee ||

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa ! Waheguru ji ki Fateh !
