Sorath mehalaa 5 l
Sathiguru Arjun Dev Jee Maharaj is blessing us today in the Sorath raagini. Sathiguru Maharaj sahib Jee is explaining to us that the True Guru is the giver, is the one that can bless us with eternal peace. How is this eternal peace found? Through the ras, through the essence of the Name of the Lord. Sathiguru Maharaj Sahib Jee begins the shabadh-

Sarab sukhaa kaa dhaathaa sathigur thaa kee saranee paaeeai l
No matter how much we may try, we may get one sukh, we may get two sukh, we may get one happiness, one comfort, two comforts, but there's no person on this earth that owns all comfort. There's no human being that can say I've got all the comforts of the world; yes they may have many, but not all. Guru Sahib Jee says if you want all of the happiness of all of the universes, complete happiness, who will you find this from? Who is the dhaathaa, who is such a giver who can bless you with this? Guru Arjun Dev Jee Maharaj says that Sathiguru, the True Guru is the one who can give you that peace of mind, that happiness, that harmony which can never be taken away by anyone. That harmony, that peace, that happiness is eternal. If we go to the Guru, how do we obtain this? Guru Arjun Dev Jee Maharaj explains to us, thaa kee saranee paaeeai- you can paaeeai, you can find this, and paaeeai also means by falling into the saranee, the protection, the sanctuary of the True Guru, by falling in front of the Guru, by accepting protection of the Guru, by accepting the Guru's guramath, by accepting the wisdom of the Guru, by listening, accepting and practicing that wisdom throughout our lives, we will obtain that eternal peace.

Dharasan bhaettath hoth anandhaa dhookh gaeiaa har gaaeeai l 1 l
Those who are blessed with dharasan- with the blessed vision, bhaettath- those who meet with, those who unite with the Guru, hoth anandhaa- they are blessed with complete bliss. Anandh is not a transitory happiness which comes and goes. Anandh is a bliss, which even when the gurasikh is cut into little bits like Bhai Mani Singh jee, that bliss doesn't leave them. That is what anandh is. Maharaj Sahib Jee says that those that have had the blessed vision of the Guru, those that have united with the Guru, they are blessed with that anandh, that eternal state of bliss. Dhookh gaeiaa har gaaeeai- and by gaaeeai, by singing the praise of Hari, of Waheguru who nourishes the whole world, dhookh- pain, gaeiaa- departs.

Har ras peevahu bhaaee l
O bhaaee, O brothers, O sisters, O beings of this earth, peevahu- taste, drink, take within you the ras, the essence of Hari, of Waheguru Jee's Name. How do we take in this essence? Maharaj Sahib jee goes on to say-

Naam japahu naamo aaraadhahu gur poorae kee saranaaee l
Naam japahu- with your tongue chant the Name of the Lord, naamo aaraadhahu- with your mind, body and soul, dedicate yourself to meditating upon the name of the Lord. Gur poorae kee saranaaee- and fall into the saranaaee, into the protection of the poorae, of the perfect Guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee, Sri Guru Naanak Dev Jee. What does it mean to go into the saranaaee? It means to accept what the Guru says, to follow what the Guru says.

rehaao l
Rehaoo- Guru Sahib Jee says pause and think about this today.

Thisehi paraapath jis dhur likhiaa soee pooran bhaaee l
Thisehi- to that person, paraapath- is blessed with this, jis dhur likhiaa- who has this pre-ordained destiny written from dhur, from primal times. Soee pooran bhaaee- O brothers, that soul, who has this pre-ordained destiny becomes pooran, becomes perfect, falls into and merges with that pooran Guru and merges in with Waheguru.

Naanak kee baenanthee prabh jee naam rehaa liv laaee l 2 l 25 l 89 l
Sathiguru Maharaj Jee says that I do this one baenanthee, this one ardhaas, this one prayer to my Lord God Prabh Jee- naam raha liv laaee, may my liv, may my consciousness be laaee, be attached, rehaa, forever and ever to Your Name, to the Name of the Lord. Sathigur Maharaj Sahib Jee is giving us this, which is the greatest ardhaas for a gurasikh. Maharaj Sahib Jee is saying to us this should be our ardhaas. May our consciousness, throughout happiness, throughout sadness, throughout the ups and downs of our life, be focused upon the name of the Lord. Guru Sahib Jee is telling us that that can only be found by falling into the protection of the Sathiguru who is the dhaathaa of sarab sukhaa, of all peace, of eternal grace, and eternal happiness.

Thisehi paraapath jis dhur likhiaa soee pooran bhaaee l
Naanak kee baenanthee prabh jee naam rehaa liv laaee l 2 l 25 l 89 l

Waheguru Jee Ka Khalsa Waheguru Jee Ki Fateh.
