SatGuru Ram Das Ji Maharaj is speaking to us today in Vadhans Raag.

haN-u gur bin haN-u gur bin kharee nimaanee raam.
Guru Ji begins the Shabad with haN-u gur bin haN-u gur bin kharee nimaanee raam Guru Piaario, Guru Ji is sayinghaun gur bin, haun without the Guru, without being connected to the Guru, without living with the Guru in my life,haN-u gur bin haN-u gur bin Guru Sahib Ji is saying again and again, kharee nimaanee raam, kharee completely, nimaanee, I have no other honor, I have no one else, and when this idea of nimaan comes up, it is not talking about ego. What this concept in Sikhi is that faith, that knowledge, that spark inside that you know that the Guru is with you all the time. To have that positive type of honor; to have that positive type of pride that I have my Guru always with me; I have Guru's hand upon my head. Not have ego but to say I am the best, I am not forlorn, I am not homeless because I have Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj, Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj to guide me. That type of honor that stops us from going anywhere else and leads us back to Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj because we know Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj is with us at all times. Guru Ram Das Ji is saying in this Shabad is that without the Guru I have no one to have pride in, I have no one to have any confidence in.

Thatjagjeevan, that life in the world, God, Waheguru, daataa, giver to all, only through the Guru, mayl samaanee raam, can you bemayl -united and samaanee merge with the Waheguru, Raam, O people. Raam here is a way of calling a collection of people, a group of people, O people of the world. And also it is one of the names of the God.

satgur mayl har naam samaanee jap har har naam Dhi-aa-i-aa.
mayl meaning united, being united with the Satguru, har naam samaanee we merge in with the Waheguru. What does the Guru do? The eternal Guru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj? When we unite with them they bless us withhar naam, with the name of the God. And when wesamaanee, completely merge with the name of the God, and how do we merge in with the name of the God? By repeating it again and again and again. jap har har naam Dhi-aa-i-aa,jap, meditating upon har har naam, the name of Hari, Waheguru who can har take away all of our pains. har means to destroy our pains and har who nourishes us, who regenerates us, who helps us blossom forth. Dhi-aa-i-aa I meditate upon that name of Waheguru, of God.

jis kaaran haN-u dhoondh dhoodhaydee so sajan har ghar paa-i-aa.
jis kaaran For which reason haN-u dhoondh dhoodhaydee, who I was searching for allover, in many places, so sajan har ghar paa-i-aa, so sajan , that God who I was looking for, searching for that friend who I was looking for, who has been with me since the beginning of time, har ghar paa-i-aa that Hari, Waheguru I have found through the Guru's Grace, by meditating upon the naam I have found that Waheguru within ghar, within the home of myself, inside.

When you are united with God, ayk darisat, all you can see is that great one, ayk Lord, Waheguru. har ayko jaataa And I have only known or have knowledge of that one Waheguru. har aatam raam pachhaanee And through the Guru's grace by meditating upon naam I havepachhaanee, come to understand and realize inside myaatam, my own spiritual self, that Raam, that Waheguru, that Hari is abiding within me.

haN-u gur bin haN-u gur bin kharee nimaanee. ||1||
Without the Guru I do not have that support, that confidence, without the Guru I do not have that honor, I do not have that support at all.
