Other Wedding Shabads

From SikhiWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Guru, through the four laava and the shabads (hymns) below, gives the Sikh couple further spiritual guidance for their life together; a journey together towards liberation and union with God. The Guru tells the Sikhs of the four golden rules of married life. These rules start very clearly to define the path to be threaded together in this sacred union. The Shabads inform us how the couple as a team has to first begin by following the path of righteousness and sinless-ness.

Apart from the 4 Laavas, these are the other shabads that are sung at the time of the Anand Karaj (Sikh wedding) ceremony.

Keethaa lorreeai kam

Keethaa lorreeai kam so har pehi aakheeai - This Shabad is by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Siree Raag:

ਪਉੜੀ ॥ ਕੀਤਾ ਲੋੜੀਐ ਕੰਮੁ ਸੁ ਹਰਿ ਪਹਿ ਆਖੀਐ ॥ ਕਾਰਜੁ ਦੇਇ ਸਵਾਰਿ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸਚੁ ਸਾਖੀਐ ॥ ਸੰਤਾ ਸੰਗਿ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਚਾਖੀਐ ॥ ਭੈ ਭੰਜਨ ਮਿਹਰਵਾਨ ਦਾਸ ਕੀ ਰਾਖੀਐ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਇ ਅਲਖੁ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਲਾਖੀਐ ॥20॥


pourree ॥ keethaa lorreeai ka(n)m s har pehi aakheeai ॥ kaaraj dhaee savaar sathigur sach saakheeai ॥ sa(n)thaa sa(n)g nidhhaan a(n)mrith chaakheeai ॥ bhai bha(n)jan miharavaan dhaas kee raakheeai ॥ naanak har gun gaae alakh prabh laakheeai ॥20॥

Pauree: Whatever work you wish to accomplish-tell it to the Lord. He will resolve your affairs; the True Guru gives His Guarantee of Truth. In the Society of the Saints, you shall taste the treasure of the Ambrosial Nectar. The Lord is the Merciful Destroyer of fear; He preserves and protects His slaves. O Nanak, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, and see the Unseen Lord God. ((20))

Salok, Fifth Mehla: I have totally discarded praise and slander, O Nanak; I have forsaken and abandoned everything. I have seen that all relationships are false, and so I have grasped hold of the hem of Your robe, Lord. ((1))

My marriage has been performed, O my father. As Gurmukh, I have found the Lord. The darkness of ignorance has been dispelled. The Guru has revealed the blazing light of spiritual wisdom. This spiritual wisdom given by the Guru shines forth, and the darkness has been dispelled. I have found the Priceless Jewel of the Lord. The sickness of my ego has been dispelled, and my pain is over and done. Through the Guru's Teachings, my identity has consumed my identical identity. I have obtained my Husband Lord, the Akaal Moorat, the Undying Form. He is Imperishable; He shall never die, and He shall never ever leave. My marriage has been performed, O my father. As Gurmukh, I have found the Lord. ((2))

puree asa ji mansa

This Shabad is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Raag Vadhans: pooree aasaa jee manasaa

ਪੂਰੀ ਆਸਾ ਜੀ ਮਨਸਾ ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਮੋਹਿ ਨਿਰਗੁਣ ਜੀਉ ਸਭਿ ਗੁਣ ਤੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਸਭਿ ਗੁਣ ਤੇਰੇ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਮੇਰੇ ਕਿਤੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਤੁਧੁ ਸਾਲਾਹੀ ॥ ਗੁਣੁ ਅਵਗੁਣੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਨ ਬੀਚਾਰਿਆ ਬਖਸਿ ਲੀਆ ਖਿਨ ਮਾਹੀ ॥ ਨਉ ਨਿਧਿ ਪਾਈ ਵਜੀ ਵਾਧਾਈ ਵਾਜੇ ਅਨਹਦ ਤੂਰੇ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਮੈ ਵਰੁ ਘਰਿ ਪਾਇਆ ਮੇਰੇ ਲਾਥੇ ਜੀ ਸਗਲ ਵਿਸੂਰੇ ॥4॥1॥

pooree aasaa jee manasaa maerae raam ॥

mohi niragun jeeo sabh gun thaerae raam ॥

sabh gun thaerae t(h)aakur maerae kith mukh thudhh saalaahee ॥

gun avagun maeraa kishh n beechaariaa bakhas leeaa khin maahee ॥

no nidhh paaee vajee vaadhhaaee vaajae anehadh thoorae ॥

kahu naanak mai var ghar paaeiaa maerae laathhae jee sagal visoorae ॥4॥1॥

My hopes and desires have been fulfilled, O my Lord. I am worthless, without virtue; all virtues are Yours, O Lord. All virtues are Yours, O my Lord and Master; with what mouth should I praise You? You did not consider my merits and demerits; you forgave me in an instant. I have obtained the nine treasures, congratulations are pouring in, and the unstruck melody resounds. Says Nanak, I have found my Husband Lord within my own home, and all my anxiety is forgotten.
