Sathiguru Amardaasjee Maharaj begins today's hukamnama sahib with the line,

Sabadh sachai sach sohilaa jithai sachae kaa hoe veechaaro raam |
Sathiguru Amardaasjee Maharaj is saying sabadh sachai sach sohilaa - sach: again and again in the shabad you will hear sach, sachai, sachaa - these words. What is Truth? That thing is True which is eternal. Everything which is going to fall away, which is going to decay, which is going to be destroyed, is false. How can you attach yourself to falsehood? Sathiguru Maharaj jee is showing us the Eternal Truth. Sathiguru Maharaj jee is showing us the Eternal Truth. Maharaj jee says, sabadh sachai sach sohilaa - sach Eternal sohilaa - eternal peace, eternal happiness which never ends is only found through sabadh sachai - through the sabadh of sachai - of that eternal Waheguru. If you attach yourself to falsehood then you are only going to get false peace. If you attach yourself to that which is going to fall away then your peace will always be falling away from you. If you attach yourself to Waheguru, to that Guru who is immovable, who will never perish then your peace will be immovable whether around you there is pain, happiness - whatever there is the inner peace will remain undisturbed. Sabadh sachai sach sohilaa - only through attaching to the Word of the sabadh - to the Word of True Lord Waheguru can you find eternal peace. Jithai sachae kaa hoe veechaaro raam - where do you find this peace? - Where sachae kaa hoe veechaaro - where the understanding, where the wisdom of that sachaa Waheguru, of that eternal Lord God is understood: in the company of the holy congregation - of the saadsangat. That is where you will find this true shabad, this true Word of the Lord God, Waheguru.

Houmai - your ego, sabh kilavikh - all of your sins are kaattae - are cut through, are eradicated, are taken away, are destroyed. The name of God is like the match which will set fire, one tiny little match can set fire to the whole forest. The forest of our sins, all of that wood will be burnt away in an instant by enshrining the true shabad, by enshrining the guru's shabad within our hearts.
