Guruji has gone through the state of meditation, of jap, of naam simran. And now Guruji is going onto the state of listening. And Guruji says sun har gun. By listening to the har gun, the praises, the har gun of Waheguru, bheenae, I am drenched in sehaj subhaaeae in his love. Following the Guru’s mantra, the Guru’s wisdom with sehaj subhaaeae with loving devotion, I meditate upon the name of Wahguru.

Those who have such destiny written on their forehead, dhhur likhiaa, pre-ordained destiny, thin gur miliaa, those people meet the Guru. Then what happens? thin janam maran bho bhaagaa, that fear, that janam, that fear of birth and death leaves them.

a(n)dharahu dhuramath dhoojee khoee so jan har liv laagaa
From inside themselves, the dhuramath, the evil-mindedness, the things which take us away from the Guru, and dhoojee khoee, and duality, dhoojee, khoee, is gone. Duality means being in two minds. You cannot be in two minds if you are are going to follow God, if you are going to merge into God. You must remove your ego to allow God to enter.

Guru says that those people who blessed with knowing the Guru, and following his instructions and listen intuitively, and receive his blessing, so jan har liv laagaa that servant is lovingly attached to Waheguru.

In this age, Guru ji says, raam naam, the only way you can be liberated is by meditating on raam naam, meditating on the name, the eternal word, the shabad.

gur thae oupajai sabadh veechaaraa
Gur thae oupjai But where do you find this name? Where do you find the shabad? The question comes. And Guru Amar Das ji answers this question. gur thae oupajai. The understanding of the shabad, the understanding of the Word, the understanding of that eternal mantra, comes from the Guru. Guru Granth Sahib ji, who is the Guru, who is the Shabad Guru, who is the Guru of the shabad.

gur sabadh veechaaraa raam naam piaaraa jis kirapaa karae s paaeae
Only those people upon whom Waheguru showers His kirpaa, will find the veechaaraa, the understanding , the veechaaraa of the Word, of the shabad, of the eternal vibration.
