SGGS: This Month

This is what the Guru Granth Sahib says about this month:

ਫਲਗ੝ਣਿ ਅਨੰਦ ਉਪਾਰਜਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਸਜਣ ਪ੝ਰਗਟੇ ਆਇ ॥ ਸੰਤ ਸਹਾਈ ਰਾਮ ਕੇ ਕਰਿ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਦੀਆ ਮਿਲਾਇ ॥ ਸੇਜ ਸ੝ਹਾਵੀ ਸਰਬ ਸ੝ਖ ਹ੝ਣਿ ਦ੝ਖਾ ਨਾਹੀ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਇਛ ਪ੝ਨੀ ਵਡਭਾਗਣੀ ਵਰ੝ ਪਾਇਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇ ॥ ਮਿਲਿ ਸਹੀਆ ਮੰਗਲ੝ ਗਾਵਹੀ ਗੀਤ ਗੋਵਿੰਦ ਅਲਾਇ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਜੇਹਾ ਅਵਰ੝ ਨ ਦਿਸਈ ਕੋਈ ਦੂਜਾ ਲਵੈ ਨ ਲਾਇ ॥ ਹਲਤ੝ ਪਲਤ੝ ਸਵਾਰਿਓਨ੝ ਨਿਹਚਲ ਦਿਤੀਅਨ੝ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਸਾਗਰ ਤੇ ਰਖਿਅਨ੝ ਬਹ੝ੜਿ ਨ ਜਨਮੈ ਧਾਇ ॥ ਜਿਹਵਾ ਝਕ ਅਨੇਕ ਗ੝ਣ ਤਰੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਚਰਣੀ ਪਾਇ ॥ ਫਲਗ੝ਣਿ ਨਿਤ ਸਲਾਹੀਝ ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਤਿਲ੝ ਨ ਤਮਾਇ ॥13॥

falagun ana(n)d upaarajanaa har sajan pragaTe aae ॥ sa(n)th sahaaee raam ke kar kirapaa deeaa milaae ॥ sej suhaavee sarab sukh hun dukhaa naahee jaae ॥ ichh punee vaddbhaaganee var paaeiaa har raae ॥ mil saheeaa ma(n)gal gaavehee geet govi(n)dh alaae ॥ har jehaa avar na disee koee doojaa lavai n laae ॥ halat palat savaarian nihachal diteean jaae ॥ sa(n)saar saagar the rakhian bahur n janmai dhaae ॥ jihvaa ek anek gun tare naanak charanee paae ॥ falagun nit salaaheeai jis no til n tamaae ॥13॥

In the month of Phalgun, bliss comes to those, unto whom the Lord, the Friend, has been revealed. The Saints, the Lord’s helpers, in their mercy, have united me with Him. My bed is beautiful, and I have all comforts. I feel no sadness at all. My desires have been fulfilled-by great good fortune, I have obtained the Sovereign Lord as my Husband. Join with me, my sisters, and sing the songs of rejoicing and the Hymns of the Lord of the Universe. There is no other like the Lord-there is no equal to Him. He embellishes this world and the world hereafter, and He gives us our permanent home there. He rescues us from the world-ocean; never again do we have to run the cycle of reincarnation. I have only one tongue, but Your Glorious Virtues are beyond counting. Nanak is saved, falling at Your Feet. In Phalgun, praise Him continually; He has not even an iota of greed. ((13))
