Patti Likhi

Jump to: navigation, search

Patti Likhi is the bani composed by Guru Nanak Dev. Patti by Guru Nanak titled Ragu Asd Mahald I Patti Likhi comprises thirty five stanzas, each stanza introduced with a letter of the Gurmukhi alphabet. From stanza nine to thirtythree, the order followed is exactly that of the alphabet current today; elsewhere there are deviations. What was the order prevalent in Guru Nanak`s time is, however, uncertain. The main themes touched upon in this composition are the unicity of the Godhead, human ego and karma, the law of causality. God is one. He is the Creator of all that exists.

Guru Nanak was born with the mandate (predestination as opposed to free will) of revealing a new religious thought and to build up a new nation on the basis of Truth. The Primal Lord wanted Nanak to project a humanitarian and scientific religion, and build a new nation shorn of all hypocrisy and mythology. His mission was revealed when he was taken to the teacher for imparting teaching in the crude local Lande or Mahajani alphabet with which the Khatris maintained accounts. When the teacher wanted the seven year old Nanak to learn the letter "S" or "sassa", Nanak asked as to what did that letter mean. The teacher said it meant the letter ‘S’ nothing more. Guru Nanak explained that it stood for the Sole Creator of the universe who is the one Lord of all of us. "Sasai soye srishat jin saaji, sabhna sahib ek, bhaiyaa" (Guru Granth Sahib, 432). The bani in Raag Aasa over which Guru Arjun, the compiler of Guru Granth Sahib has given the heading Patti Likhi, or the written alphabet, contains a line or couplet for each of the 35 letters of the Gurmukhi alphabet.

When Guru Nanak was born in 1469, the people of Punjab had been speaking Punjabi for over 1,000 years, but there was no script of the language. A crude script of 27 letters, called Mahaani or Takri, without vowels (like the so called abjads of Hebrew, Arabic, Greek and Aramaic) or mattras was used by people to note down accounts, record family events and to send messages. By regarding the whole line they could make out or guess the meaning, a system that allowed and still does allow various interpretations of the meanings of Bibical and Qur'anic passages.

At the time Muslims had been ruling Punjab for nearly 500 years and half the population had, by then, embraced Islam many by force. The official or court language was Old Persian, written in the Arabic script. The maulvis in the mosques instructed the Muslims in observation of Muslim customs using the Qur'an which was scribed in Arabic only. The Brahmins limited the teaching of the script of the Vedas to only the upper castes, retaining the study of the holy books of Hinduism among their caste only. Specific rituals that they had prescribed as part and parcel of the religion were only marginally explained, usually only to the extent that many people use today with very young children-i.e. saying because, that is the way it has always been done. Rituals were conected to specific family or festival days and all of them required a payment to the purohit (family priest).

Indeed, observation of specific rituals have always been included as part of each religion. Akal Purakh, one of the many names used by Sikhs for God (not as the writer says above the Godhead - a Hindu word which turned around shows its literal meaning (the head-god) decided to have a complete break when Nanak started reciting bani, or divine revelation, in the Punjabi language. Nanak started compiling this 'revealed' bani in a very concise and complete scientific script for the Punjabi language, comprising 35 letters, 10 vowel marks and 3 other sound marks. It is a historical fact that prior to Guru Nanak’s writing Gurbani, no text had ever been written on walls, stones or paper in the now known Punjabi or Gurmukhi alphabet. Indeed, we can state without the slightest hesitation, and without any fear of contradiction, that Guru Nanak is the inventor of the Gurmukhi [email protected] though many people credit its refinement to a later Guru. There are hundreds of other scripts all over the world but there is no single inventor of any one of them.
